Dawson Riley says he had/has a brain tumor. Simon Dexter says he was scammed by his photographer. Who, if either of them, do you believe?
First, Dawson Riley. He’s just posted to his blog that the real reason he left porn last year was because of a brain tumor!
I know that I said things a year ago that were harsh and undeserved. There was a lot going on with me, and I needed a scapegoat. I got angry about the blogs after I tweeted that I was never coming back to porn. Also the things I said to Josh Griffin, should have been private and not tweeted. We all make mistakes. I made a mistake, and I am more than willing to own up to the judgement on my part. I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor December 2009 after I was in that fight. Some of you saw the pictures of my broken nose and black eye. LOL.
They did an MRI and found I had a developing mass on my pituitary gland. I was placed in ICU at Barrows Neurological Instsitute. I didn’t tell anyone then because at that time we were unclear of the prognosis, and I would rather my fans be mad at me than to be worried about me. I was suffering headaches, blurred vision, instability and nausea. They were unclear at that time if surgery was the best option. Turns out over the past year I have been medically treated for the tumor and it has shrunk! YAY!!!
But, “medically treated” for a brain tumor is kind of vague, and it could mean a lot of things (chemo?), and whatever happened to his wife and daughter–the ones he said he was retiring for? Are his fans not supposed to be worried about them anymore? But really, who cares about specifics when you’re looking at someone as hunky as Dawson Riley, right? Back off, haters.
And what about Simon Dexter?
He’s mad at the photographer who took pictures of him last summer, and last night he went on his blog to say he was scammed:
In 2010 I was shot by Dylan Rosser for an alleged coffee table book. He lied to me, mislead me and manipulated me. In 2008, we spoke of shooting nudes for his website. I quoted him a rate for shooting nudes, not porn. He couldn’t afford and It never happened. So last summer (over two years later) he contacted me again about shooting a coffee table book. I agreed and we shot for a very low rate because I wanted to be part of an artistic book. In the last few days, I have come to find out that these images (that were allegedly taken for a coffee table book) have been published by Dylan on his membership subscription porn website. This is a clear violation of our agreement and my trust and is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL. […] I contacted him to resolve this issue and he continued to lie to me and manipulate our conversation. Let this be a clear warning to anyone out there, DO NOT WORK WITH DYLAN ROSSER IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM!!
This morning, The Sword obtained the model release that Simon Dexter signed with Dylan Rosser, and (as most model releases do) it clearly states that the photographer can publish the photos in “any and all media,” and that Simon Dexter “consent[s] to the use of any published matter in connection therewith.” Simon’s signature, despite what he says he was told verbally, means he agreed. And, isn’t it a little late for Simon Dexter to be complaining about being on a porn site?
Did Dawson Riley really have a tumor? Was Simon Dexter really told that he was being shot for just a coffee table book? If a porn star has been dishonest on his blog, can you ever masturbate to them the same way? And on a scale of 1 to 10, how stupid is all of this?
