[UPDATED] Gay Porn Star Ben Masters Hospitalized With “Severe Depression And Anxiety,” While Angel Rivera Responds To Accusation Of Affair With Joey Mills

Posted April 16, 2018 by with 166 comments

benag-1[This post is being continually updated below.]

Following gay porn star Ben Masters’ accusation that his boyfriend Angel Rivera was cheating on him with fellow Helix performer Joey Mills—which played out dramatically on Twitter over the weekend—Rivera has issued a response today, nearly three days after Masters’ Friday night Twitter tirade (which included his publishing of Helix employees’ private telephone numbers). Rivera’s response doesn’t go into specifics, but it seems to imply that Masters was not being truthful or accurate when he made the accusations about Rivera and Mills:

angel1Ben Masters tweeted throughout the weekend that he was struggling with the apparent break-up, and he announced today that he was admitted to the hospital with “severe depression and anxiety”:

ben11 ben22 ben33Hopefully Masters will receive the care and support that he needs, and he can get through what has obviously been a difficult time for him.

UPDATE 1: Ben Masters has shared these Snapchat images of him receiving medical treatment, presumably in the ER:

For his part, Joey Mills has not made any comments about the alleged affair or Masters, and instead focused on work and filming over the weekend. Mills, along with Rivera, Josh Brady, Cameron Parks, Luke Wilder, and Corbin Colby appeared to be shooting a six-way orgy, as shared by Helix yesterday:

UPDATE 2:

If you thought this couldn’t get more bizarre (or confusing), think again. Early this morning, Angel Rivera’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked, and by his own admission, Ben Masters was responsible for the hacks.

It started with this tweet from Angel’s hacked Twitter account, which was linking over to his hacked Instagram account. In the tweet, “Angel” (a.k.a. Ben) admits to cheating on Ben, and then says he’ll be moving to Las Vegas to work full time for Helix and live with his “new boyfriend” (who, in hacker Ben’s mind, would presumably be Joey):

hack5On Angel Rivera’s hacked Instagram account, a screenshot was posted of what appears to be a real, private message that the real Angel Rivera sent to Joey Mills via Twitter DM. It’s not clear when this message to Joey Mills was originally sent, but assuming it is in fact real, it would’ve been sent several days ago, before Angel Rivera went to Las Vegas:

hack3hack4In the Instagram caption written by hacker Ben Masters, as seen above, the fake Angel Rivera writes that these are his “true feelings” for Joey Mills, and that, “yes I cheated.”

Two more tweets were posted to Angel Rivera’s hacked Twitter account, with the hacker now admitting that the account has been hacked, and then calling Angel Rivera an “awful person”:

hack2hack6Shortly after that last tweet, the hacker then completely deleted Angel Rivera’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. Ben Masters, now tweeting from his own account, admitted to playing a role in deleting the accounts, “at request by me,” and admitted to knowing who the hacker was:

hack7 hack8Obviously, it was Ben Masters who hacked Angel Rivera’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. Being boyfriends and living together in New York City, it’s reasonable to assume that Ben had access to or knowledge of Angel’s passwords.

Also, just moments ago, Ben Masters openly admitted to hacking the accounts. In a response to Str8UpGayPorn’s tweet presuming that it was him who did the hacking/deletion, Ben Masters quote RT’d Str8UpGayPorn by writing, “Yup.”

ben44As of now, Angel Rivera’s Twitter and Instagram are still deleted, but given that he was hacked, he should be able to have both accounts reinstated.

There will undoubtedly be another update coming soon (by the time I click publish on this post and go back to Twitter, something else will probably have happened), so stay tuned…

    So Masters goes on a Twitter tirade bashing his ex lover for infidelity, (Rivera) then gets hospitalized for depression (🤣) and tweets he wishes Rivera was with him at the hospital? Oh these HelixStudios Twinks… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5882473611d35f53a25ec1c2eb6b2e6503b62d47a182baf4e52e7a6c6ed0229e.gif

    • FrenchBug

      I am not sure what your point is. He is having some kind of depressive episode because of a break-up. I am not sure how absurd it is for someone heartbroken about a break-up to have moments where they wish the person they love was with them.
      I get the impulse for mocking twinks and messy public personalities but this seems more sad than anything.

      • linger4444

        Ben Masters, is that you?

        • Todd B

          Jesus douche, have a little compassion. He’s young and his world has fallen apart. I hope you NEVER have to handle that emotionally, especially in the public eye. I’m sure your old ass would be on Twitter too if you were on his shoes. At least he sought help and didn’t kill himself. Who’s side are you on, gays who have to deal with what this society does to us emotionally, or the right wing side?

          • adamb

            It’s just a very sad episode, i hope Helix will support him even if he has quit as he clearly has emotional issues.

          • Seanumich

            He DIDNT have to deal with it in the “public eye” He made it public. I have HUGE issues with a 22 year old who is so dependant on another human being that they become suicidal over a BF of a few months. There are some severe issues prior to this relationship. The REALLY disgusting part is publishing PRIVATRE phoen numbers of people you work with. There would be a HUGE issue if anybody decided to publish my phone number without my consent.

          • FrenchBug

            Publishing the phone numbers was uncool. But at worst it is an inconvenience. If Masters is really going through someone mental-health-related, it seems one should keep things in perspective here.
            He probably had underlying problems and, yes, obviously unhealthy attachment issues. Where you lose me is that you seem to think that means you should be angrier and harsher on him, not more understanding.
            That’s one hell of an uncompassionate take.

          • Devin

            Thank you! Let’s get some fucking perspective here. People are more concerned about phone numbers than a person’s life? Does the phone number hold some sort of sentimental value? Fucking get a new number! Who gives a shit?? NEXT CAAAAASE!

          • Seanumich

            His bf leftr him., BOO FUCKING HOO. If you are 22 years old and cant handle rejection or being dumped get a new life. He is a GROWN ASS MAN. He made the CHOICE to do porn, so he make the choice to MOVE ON. This is the classic case of if I cant have him, nobody can. When Ben kills Angel because he has a mental disoder are you going to say well ANgel shouldnt have left him
            Maybe you forget that it is ANGEL’s LIFE too. He shouldnt have to disrupt his life becuase some idiot cant handle being diumped

          • Seanumich

            I am sick and tired of the mental health issue excuse for bad behaviour. I dont see anybody defending Angel. Angel isnt resposible for Ben’s mental health issues. People who rape little boys have amental health issue. It doesnt change the fact it is wrong. Ben KNEW it was wrong to post those numbers because he said he would take them down if somebody met his ransom demands. He is a controlling menipulator. If that is his mental disorder than GET HELP and stay the fuck off Twitter trying to destroy all around you. If he wont do that, then he needs to be committed involuntarily.

          • linger4444

            A-fucking-men!

            I don’t know how people are trying to make him a victim when he tried to hurt people as well

          • linger4444

            Old? Honey, I’m 26. That might be old for you I guess, but at least I’m old enough to not post up my personal issues on social media. Doing that involves all sorts of criticism and is completely the fault of the poster.

            Also, assumption of political beliefs based on that? Lmfao! Well, to inform your ignorance, I consider myself to be in the middle. Conservatives are far too stupid and liberals are far too sentive. Taking anything too serious makes you a fool sweetheart. Have fun with that.

          • Todd B

            Well, you clearly are more on the liberal side since you are so sensitive to what I said to you…honey.

          • linger4444

            You literally went from calling me a “right-winger” to a liberal in two posts.

            You clearly aren’t all there, so I bid you adieu!

          • Todd B

            Maybe you need to look inside, because your actions make it unclear.

  • Birdy65

    Did they really filmed over the weekend knowing The Free Speech Coalition issued a statement relative to an adult performer under the PASS system
    tested positive for HIV and that a porn-production moratorium has been
    imposed that will continue at least through mid-week ?

  • Devin

    I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. Silence doesn’t necessarily mean the person did wrong, but this is your boyfriend. Why be silent? Why ignore him? Angel is full of shit.

    • Eric

      Because he does not to indulge in all his drama. Seems clear to me.

      • FrenchBug

        Drama or, in a more generous interpretation, Masters’ “issues”.
        It seems that the ER stay might indicate we are not talking just about an overdramatic twink but someone with depression or other mental issues.
        Nothing that Masters wouldn’t be able to overcome with help, and I am sure he will, and certainly something that a breakup would help trigger.
        Either way, I don’t see how the ex-boyfriend would not be anything but counterproductive at this point.

    • FrenchBug

      We don’t know what happened and it seems clear they have broken up.
      Do you think he should go back with Masters because Masters is clearly not handling the breakup well? Or, if he has no intention to patch things up, wouldn’t showing up actually make things worse by feeding false hope to Masters?
      I am full of compassion for Masters but it is not Rivera’s responsibility. I don’t know how I’d handle it but I don’t think silence makes him full of shit. Sadly, he doesn’t have many good options right now.

      • Devin

        I only ignore people I don’t give af about. He ignored his fragile ass boyfriend. Fucking sad. He doesn’t give a shit. It’s evident. His tweet is bullshit. He’s more concerned about what people think about Joey than the welfare of his own boyfriend. It’s obvious what’s going on here.

        • Seanumich

          Except his BF burned a shit ton of bridges by doing things like releasing PERSONAL information. To put it bluntly, Ive seen this movie, and the storyline is, if I CANT HAVE HIM/HER, NOBODY CAN. The best bet is to stay as far away as possible.

          • Devin

            This is not a movie. This is real life. If you want to leave a person you fucking grow a pair and you tell them. People need and deserve closure.

    • Lazycrockett

      Maybe, and this happens a lot in young love, one is way more into the relationship than the other.

      • FrenchBug

        It might not have been the case while they were in the relationship but after a non-mutual breakup such as this, *clearly* one is less into the relationship than the other.

    • lukaeber

      Why one earth would he communicate with him through twitter? Come on.

  • FrenchBug

    I have no freaking idea what Rivera is on about in this tweet and how this relates to anything that is going on.
    I am not faulting him for staying silent – it is actually probably better for him to stay away if he intends to stick with the break-up, lest he enables Masters’ unhealthy attachment issues. But this response made no sense to me.

    • Devin

      Angel is a pretentious dick. That’s why he tweeted that bullshit that has you and others confused. He wanted to let us know that he’s independent and successful. He wants us to know that he’s above Ben and whatever he’s going through. He’s a little shit. If I was Ben I’d be like bye Felicia because when you do clownery the clown comes back to bite. Angel will get what’s coming to him

  • Hari Kalyan

    Meh, must be a slow weekend in gay porn… in other news I’m still not recovered from Beyonce’s Coachella performance

  • Johnny

    To be fair to Masters, I might also have to be hospitalized for depression if I lost Rivera’s gorgeous body and mesmerizing cock.

    • FrenchBug

      I know you’re being cheeky but let’s remind Ben Masters, and everyone in a situation similar as his, that there are millions of men with gorgeous bodies and mesmerizing cocks out there.
      And let’s remind folks like Angel Rivera that this attention you seem to enjoy will wane one day or another, so let’s hope he has other things going for him, like compassion.

  • troach

    Not to diminish the heartbreak, but could it be possible that the depression is due to his expulsion from school?

    • G. Lo

      Likely it manifested sometime before the expulsion, either it was the main cause of whatever issues that led to him being expelled or compounded existing issues making it a certainty he would be expelled.

  • Devin

    Notice who Angel is concerned about in his tweet. Notice who Angel mentioned in his tweet. It aint Ben! Oh, and what is he concerned about? He’s concerned about what we think about Joey while his boyfriend is in the hospital! Don’t assume things about Joey! Okay, Miss Angel. You better stick up for your side chick. Dumb ass told on himself. This isn’t rocket science.

    • Alann6

      Angel seems to be a very cold person.

      • McM.

        Or he doesn’t want to indulge.

        If he wants to keep his thoughts and feelings about the subject private he can. Nothing wrong with refraining from being swept up in public commentary about the event.

        • FrenchBug

          Exactly. I think people overreading stuff.
          Maybe he mentioned Joey because he felt Joey had been unfairly dragged publicly into a situation that didn’t concern him and wanted to set the record straight about that, while handling the Ben stuff in private – where it should be.
          Or he could be an asshole. We don’t know. People are so incredibly judgmental: one day we should throw Masters in jail for publishing those phone numbers, the next we should burn Angel at the stake because he didn’t get the tone of his first reaction tweet right. Jesus. Get a grip.

        • Devin

          What does that have to do with Angel ignoring Ben’s texts and phone calls? Absolutely nothing. The ignored texts and phone calls have nothing to do with public commentary. Stop making excuses. If you don’t want to be with someone man up and tell them.

          • c_find

            How do you know he did not do that in private? I have been in a relationship with needy people and it becomes very draining to always be their support and constantly have to shower attention on them. Even when you tell them it’s over face to face they still hold on to you and won’t let go. It’s sad but sometimes you have to be cold. My point is we only know one side of the story so I don’t think you can start picking sides on who is right or wrong.

          • Devin

            All I’m saying is Angel is full of shit. I see right through him and his bullshit tweet. If he didn’t want to indulge he should have had a tall glass of stfu. Instead he tweeted some nonsense about being Miss Independent. Bitch thought he was Kelly Clarkson. #foh Ben obviously has issues, but I’m not here for Angel’s pretentious bullshit either

          • McM.

            Finding it unreasonable to hinge my viewpoint of this dramatic event on one person’s [u]assumptions[/u] is not making excuses. And as of this moment all we know of Angel Rivera’s actions is based on Ben Masters’ suspicions. No one else has come forward to confirm Angel Rivera was fucking Joey Mills, nor corroborate phone calls were ignored.

            Even if the calls were ignored, so what? That’s an intra-relationship problem and not a single person outside of it has a right to know why. This situation wasn’t anyone’s business until it was made everyone’s business, and Angel Rivera had neither a hand nor choice in how it unfolded. Not everyone is skilled at dealing with relationship drama via social media, and if the guy wants to keep quiet then he should. Speaking up may only make things worse.

            Thinking critically I have to recognize all of this bullshit is based on Ben Masters’ assumptions, and therefore I cannot take it as fact.

          • Devin

            Okay, when it turns out that you and everyone who tried to play devil’s advocate with me are all WRONG, I hope you show up when the truth comes out. This has happened before, but you guys never show up to admit when you were wrong. It’s going to happen!

          • McM.

            I’m not concerned with being right or wrong. My stance is there is a lack of information for people to be all riled up about this.

            I question why everyone cares so much.

          • Devin

            But does everyone really care? Do you care? This is Porn celebrity gossip. It’s like Wendy Williams hot topics, only in Gay porn. Do you know what’s going on in Syria right now? The kids being killed from bombs over there? The little kids playing and then the next thing a bomb dropped on them. I was literally sitting here crying watching it on the news the other day. My crying doesn’t help them though. It does nothing. How fucked up is that? Ask me now do I really care about the Ben Masters/Angel Rivera situation.

      • peter

        Or he may just be behaving like a normal twenty year-old who wants a fun relationship and didn’t sign-on for any of Ben’s neediness

  • stotng

    Theory: Ben probably suffers from some sort of mental disorder. He likely had a breakdown that started happening and impacting his school. Probably led to a fight or attempt on Angel to help that did not end well. This in turn let to Ben getting expelled. I also gather that Angel did not know this about Ben or thought he was prepared. He literally dropped school moved across the country for him.
    Ben needs family and friends that know him. Not a boyfriend that barely know each other. Wish them the best maybe I’m wrong but this rings true to my experience both my own and others I know.

    • peter

      He has depression. He may have some substance issues and an eating and/or body dysmorphic disorder (endemic among dancers).

      While I think it’s great that Helix allows, and even helps nurture, relationships between models, porn sets are probably not the best place to meet a long-term partner. I don’t see how it’s possible to exclude jealousy thinking about your partner doing it with a hottie. And there’s always the danger of your partner falling for one of his screen partners — just ask Casey Tanner about that one!

      • McM.

        “nurture”
        :)

    • Benjam

      or Joey is a nasty homewrecking ho and Angel is a grifting fuckboy.

      • FrenchBug

        Or all of these things, at one degree or another, are not mutually exclusive.

  • Scrapple

    Hopefully that stay turns to several nights, because it doesn’t seem like Ben is grasping the severity of this situation. Not if he’s in the hospital and wishing Angel was there. And Angel’s response seems very cold. He couldn’t be bothered to throw in a “Get well soon?” He’s seemingly bothered by people assuming things about Joey, but he’s not showing concern over his ex being in the hospital for depression and anxiety? That’s pretty telling.

    • adamb

      I just hope Ben get’s better soon & has someone to look after him when he get’s out of hospital, at least he’s smart in getting professional help. I really hope they both can work things out as they were hot together, awww young love can be messy.

  • elyp

    This is getting messier and more uncomfortable, and Rivera’s respond didn’t help matters. Please tell me that tweet means he’s sorting the problem out directly and not via SM…

    Whatever Ben is facing, hope he has all the proper help he can get.

  • vanfanusa

    How does he still have access to his phone to tweet? I’ve been hospitalized for depression on 3 occasions in my life and I was never allowed to keep my phone with me 😕

    • Marik Ishtar

      O sweetie, I hope you’re doing okay.

      • vanfanusa

        I’m great now. Thanks for your concern!

    • Mike Julius

      Depends. They always take the phone, but after they tell you they’ll hold you and give you a chance to contact a loved one.

    • Sebastian S

      I posted before reading your post and I had the same thought. They took away my phone when I was hospitalized for depression allowing one final call with two personnel in the room only to notify someone where I was.

  • ANTSLC

    What a bunch of fucking weirdos!

  • John

    I give the guy some slack if he had a mental breakdown. It happens. They usually start at that age. It runs in my family. I have done things I very much regret when in a manic episode. Luckily medication works well with me.

  • synnerman

    Wasn’t Masters expelled from ballet school? Seems like his world just kind of imploded.

    • Ricardo Castaneda

      I suspect because he used the image or the name of the school without permission. Someone else here says because of his “mental state”, but I do not believe it. At most I think the school used it as an excuse to cover the real reasons for expulsion.

  • Will Cobb

    Whats the point of having a boyfriend when your a porn star? Because your having sex with other people every day & then you have the nerve to get jealous??

    • FrenchBug

      Well, see, I did have the same thought.
      I can understand porn stars in a relationship that say porn sex is work and therefore do not get jealous.
      But if you are going to be so over-the-top jealous, it seems porn and dating in porn are weird choices. But it is a very artificial line that one has to be really secure to navigate.

    • OneOfTheManyChris

      From what I can tell porn couples who pull it off have very strict rules about what and what doesn’t count as cheating. The rules seem pretty stupid to normal people but that’s how they build trust and still keep their jobs.

    Sadly, the gay porn reality.

    • nbtx27

      True, though in gay porn, many times it is neither.

  • B.C.

    I don’t feel comfortable looking at this “13 Reasons Why” drama. Sometimes you have to cut your losses and move on with life. Ben obviously lacks coping mechanisms to do so. I hope he gets necessary medical treatment, compassion and support from his true friends and family.

    • adamb

      Ben likes to overshare on twitter alot not that im complaining it’s a pity Angel isnt likewise.

      • B.C.

        Sweet Angel will break many more hearts before he settles down with a handsome sugar daddy. Given the chance, I know I would.

      • FrenchBug

        I am the first one to scoff at public people (or anyone really) sharing every single little piece of their drama, often petty, through social media.
        But, hey, I also know that that can be a tool for people with issues to reach out to others. Sure, it was messy and unfairly dragged unrelated folks into it but if it led him to realize he needed to get help, then it was worth it.
        Would we have preferred that he had kept those obsessive thoughts and mounting despair anger inside his own head to the point where it exploded in self-harm? If oversharing on Twitter is the outlet he had available, I’ll take it.

        • adamb

          Could’nt agree more as self harm is never the best option oversharing on twitter or professional help is tho preferably the latter.

  • lukaeber

    I hope Ben gets well soon. He is obviously going through a lot right now, and unfortunately it is playing more publicly than it probably should. With that said, he is also being super manipulative and I would understand why Angel would not want to deal with this kind of stuff anymore. Ben seems like a good guy, but he needs to get some help.

  • HorrorGeek

    Depression and mental health are very serious issues. I hope Ben has a healthy support group and is able to get better. People have a really bad habit of stigmatizing people that are going through mental health issues.

  • FrenchBug

    Oh and, btw, while Ben Masters should not have published the phone numbers, and the performers concerned have every right to be annoyed, the fact you may have seen the numbers doesn’t give you the right to CALL THEM.
    Let’s be angrier at the creepos who took down those numbers to call the cute porn twinks – people whom they don’t know, whom they have never met, and who, in all likelihood, do not wish to talk to them.
    If you are really a fan, you wouldn’t call and there wouldn’t be a problem.

  • Eric

    Maybe put down your phone and more productively dea with your issues?

    • Karla

      I see your point, but Ben being on his phone makes me think that he must be very alone. Going so public is not clever, but it is desperation at this point, probably. Makes everyone om the other side of this story seem cold and negligent.

      • Eric

        Sometimes it is better not indulge in someone else’s possibly manipulative drama.

        • FrenchBug

          I am not disagreeing with your point if I felt this was the case he was intentionally being manipulative but I think your cynicism misses the very probably possibility that this kid – unhealthily for sure but each problem at a time – gets some genuine comfort from social media, “fans”, and talking/sharing how he feels.
          I agree that if I were his friend or family or therapist, I’d encourage him to step away. But as hinted earlier in this comment, each problem at a time. First his priority should be to get over his current episode of depression, and if it is through oversharing, so be it, and then he can tackle the underlying issues, some of which you can identify correctly.

  • Sebastian S

    I have been to the ER for severe anxiety and depression before and kept for observation. Where I’m from they took away my phone and all belongings…I really wish him well, and one important step is to get the hell off of social media, stop taking hospital selfies and get real help from real friends.

  • Edward

    These people are public figures and probably think they owe something to their following——THEY DON’T. These matters are private. Sharing them with the world with on the hour updates is ridiculous. Get well and then if you want to tell the world about it, have at it. Social media is great, but no one needs to know EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. Gee.

    • Lazycrockett

      This is how they were raised, everything, EVERYTHING has to be put on SM or it not real.

    • nbtx27

      Public figures, no just porn performers for a few thousand subscribers, and some more content thieves, and what they do in their lives are none of our business.

    Replying to @BenMastersxxx
    Forget about Angel, Ben! The whole time you were together with him he was cheating on you with people at Texas State University, people he knew before (real name redacted) became Angel. He’s a lying cheating dirt bag! Move on Ben, you could do much better!

    • elyp

      I need to see the source tweet.

  • Sed

    Ben seems to have some real serious problems and I hope for his sake that he gets help. Posting those numbers was a bad thing. But his boyfriend Angel clearly doesn’t give a shit about what’s happening to him right now. He posted pictures of himself smoking joints and having fun with Joey Mills in instagram Plus a pic on his instagram story of Joey Mills with the caption “Vibes” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a7dbb41aeea3495d440c32cc6e28038d7700d618a63ed9a12f1f3f5dc41b1267.jpg (pics are no longer their) right after Ben had his breakdown.

    Hypothetically If Ben was a clingy bad manipulative boyfriend then why not dump him and move out. Clearly someone around the Helix group let Ben know that Angel was shacking up with Joey at his apartment. Remember that’s what happened with Casey and Blake. Another model spilled the beans to Casey. Why defend Joey and not your boyfriend. Angel might not be saying it but his actions are letting us know where his priorities lie.

    Oh man this spiraled out of control fast. I hope Ben has someone to help him when he gets out. Angel seems cold but it just seems like he doesnt want to air his stuff out there? I dont know.

      Looks like Angel was hacked. And comparing the tweets to Ben’s, I’m guessing it was Ben who did it.

      • Adrian Tanner

        Maybe… What I don’t understand is why Ben would say he love Angel in one post and then hacked Angel’s accounts hours later if Ben truly was the hacker? If he was not, then who hacked the accounts? It’s hard to know what posted was real or not, and all of Angel’s account are deleted.
        But if Ben did hack Angel’s accounts, then I think he’s truly lost it 😐 Hope he has friends there to help him with his mental health (especially after seeing the photos he shared – he looked so skinny compared to his latest scene released just days ago).

    • FrenchBug

      FFS.

  • Paul J

    I don’t give a f*** about who’s cheating on who. I’m not a soap fan. But Ben’s picture captioned “hate this”, where he looks so sad, is moving and I hope he has got good friends and family to rally around him.

  • James

    Oh no, I feel for him. He has clearly grown up without even a shred of self confidence where his whole sense of self worth is driven by the psuedo addulation of others. The “porn business” seems like it is consuming him and he is an active participant in helping. Hopefully he has at least one true friend that will call his manipulative BS what it is and point out that his behaviour is just wrong, super needy and stalker creepy.

  • Mokojojo

    I wonder if Helix is in a meltdown right now as the website hasn’t been updated in 5 days. I remember when folks were wondering why a gay porn company (or any company for that matter) would have a no fraternization policy. This entire messy spiral including Angel’s account getting hacked is why.

    • nbtx27

      I noticed. Another site screwing its paying subscribers. Keep that in mind if you consider joining the site.

  • emercycrite

    So much dumb drama argh

  • Checkedout

    Looks like Ben hacked Angel’s twitter account?

    As someone who checked himself into a hospital more than once, I don’t buy Ben’s drama act. If he needs help, seek help. He’s coming off as a vindictive attention whore.

    • Raistlin

      It looks like Angel twitter account was deleted by Ben’s “request” to whoever hacked it.
      This is getting really messy really fast, and being young and upset does not justify everything…

    • peter

      When I saw that picture of him smiling on the gurney with the EKG leads, I was reminded of Mason Wyler’s notorious faked Marine gang-bang rape way back when.

      • such fond memories of Mason Wyler and his fake hospital pix

  • Kanaka

    I’m more interested in that orgy.

  • FrenchBug

    Btw did I miss the part where Ashton Summers wasn’t in the Joey picture anymore? Never quite believed that romance but did I skip something?

    • B.C.

      They were together for five seconds. It ended amicably. Before Joey, Ashton was with Calvin Banks, that lasted maybe six seconds. I have no idea who is tickling super sexy Summers at the moment, but he is again filming with CockyBoys.

      • Karla

        There was quite some drama around Ashton and Calvin too and I was left curious back then how that actually played out.

        • B.C.

          Don’t know the details. Still, I don’t think Calvin or even Ashton are relationship drama queens. Certainly nothing so “grave’ as this theater for masses.
          I’m sure in a few weeks time this will all seem like distant past, especially if there is another gay porn power couple twitter wreckage.

          • AlohaMar

            Both Calvin & Ashton deny they were ever a couple. There are some pictures showing they had some fun when they were filming, and they flirt online sometimes, but i don’t think they were ever together. There was some drama between Ashton & Joey when they broke up. It was a thing online for about a day. Calvin doesn’t do online relationship drama, at least none that I’ve seen. And the fact that he and Troy got to the point that they became best friends says a lot about their maturity.

          • Karla

            I like interesting couples ( best friends giving old husbands wibes in this case) and Calvin and Troy are the most fascinating story for sure, but I do remember Troy completely deleting even the mere memory of Calvin at some point.

          • AlohaMar

            Yeah, he did. Calvin once said during a live stream that it took a lot of immaturity (on both their parts) to get to the maturity they have now with their relationship. But Troy deleting Calvin from his social media is probably one of the tamest public responses he could have to the break up.

          • FrenchBug

            What was the drama between Joey and Ashton? Should CB pair Ben Masters with Ashton Summers for a revenge fuck now that they both moved to them?

          • Karla

            Too bad they had already had their fuck at Helix :)

          • AlohaMar

            I don’t know if I should rehash it all online (I don’t remember a lot of it). in the end it was them posting private dms online from each other in an attempt to show the other one is the person to blame for the breakup. The tweets all got deleted after a few hours.

          • would be perfect pairing then we could compare the Cockyboys version with Ashton – Ben scene on Helix

  • peter

    To be honest I’m far more interested in the six-man orgy than an any of this drama!

  • Todd B

    It’s so hilarious(sad) that so many people are going off about him sharing his crap on social media, but have no problem GOSSIPING about his doing that, themselves on social media.

  • Kewan Wells

    FYI,There are a couple of Podcasts “up for now”on YouTube #TTB (Thirst Trap Boys)
    # joeymills angelrivera benmasters
    Somebody’s got way too much time on their hands !
    Agreed #Helix must be in lockdown mode ? No updates since 4/12
    BTW Don’t know who did the play by play synopsis, but Corbin ain’t the first to Tap Josh’s ass. Joey hit it first in “Beach Buddies” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5452235a5c3442d229cb6a8d2b01ae72adec4c1f25119f70d3737146efd266e4.jpg

  • Trepakprince

    To think there was a time in my life I was this extra? Thank goodness the internet was just a bunch of chat groups and 56k dialup in my day…

  • Drunky McDrunkerson

    So as “treated for exhaustion and dehydration” is to “Almost O.D.’d or O.D.’d and lived to tell the tale”, is “in hospital being treated for depression and anxiety” going to be considered the same as “attempted or threatened to attempt suicide and now on watch at a hospital”? Just a thought. Gotta love P.R spin.

  • Drunky McDrunkerson

    All snark aside, I hope the kid gets the help he needs

  • Alex M

    Ben Masters is clearly mentally unstable and incapable of a healthy relationship – Angel Rivera is better off without him.

    • Sed

      That still doesn’t explain or excuse the cheating. Which happened before the mental breakdown and before he went to Vegas.

    • R.A.M.J

      So because he has mental issues that excuses Angel of cheating? All that says to me is that Angel is weak as fuck and instead of trying to get the person he supposedly loves help, he found another dick to ride. But sure lets blame Ben for his world spinning out of control and a cheating low life ass boyfriend to help. This what we do now, blame the victim? Maybe Ben is better off without Angel. One less thing to stress over.

      • Alex M

        There is no evidence of cheating as far as I know. Angel is innocent until proof of guilt. It’s also his right to keep his private life private: signing up to be a porn star does not mean signing up to have people who have never met you having a right to access the intimate details of your life.

        Now let’s assume he did cheat: does Ben Masters have no self respect? Of course I can understand his pain, but it ends there. Hacking someone’s account, publishing their phone number, and other vile things might be proof that Ben never cared about Angel as a person, he only cared about how Angel made him feel good.

  • Sed

    Ben clearly hacked or knows who hacked Angel’s account. He’s got some serious issues but as I said before He posted mocking pictures of himself smoking joints and having fun with Joey
    Mills on Instagram Plus a pic on his Instagram story of Joey Mills with
    the caption “Vibes” before Ben did any of this new crazy stuff. Don’t forget the timeline.

  • asby

    Some of you are over thinking it all … He is a kid who is in love and was dumped….. He probably thinks its the end of the world….Does anyone remember being in love at 21 or 22 and thinking it would never end ? And when it did, you thought you would never get over him.

    • James

      I recall more often than not, ending it only to find that they were a lil warpped and got all crazy possessive … Let’s be honest Ben seems a tad creepy, like a jealous stalker.

      Time to move on.

  • Karla

    Well, it seems that the issue here is a little different from what we thought it was. This is just hilariously entertaining right now. So it seems that Ben left Helix for Cockyboys before all this mess started and it seems that it didn’t go well with Angel and Helix. Now finally this explains the coldness shown by Angel and the Helix boys when Ben’s breakdown started. I still would like to think that being expelled from balled school was the breaking point for Ben and as for the rest…ithis story’s just getting messier by the minute.

    • Checkedout

      Breakdown also seems like a big drama act though.

      We don’t know what happened off of social media. It’s not like any of these guys are lifelong friends. I assume they met through porn and now they work at different studios. Is it immature? Of course. But Ben overreacted like a huge child.

      They haven’t even been together that long!

      • Karla

        Yeah, Ben overdid it for sure, but still if he was let go from his school maybe it is a big deal.

    • Sed

      Angel was still living with Ben just a couple of days ago. So any coldness was not conveyed to Ben before he left for Vegas.

      • Karla

        Yeah, but things got into new perspective in Vegas I suppose. Maybe the Helix boys turned Angel around…

        • Sed

          Nope sorry not buying it. If you don’t like your boyfriend you know the guy your living off in his apartment, you man the fuck up and break up with him. You don’t cheat on him and then post mocking videos and pics on Instagram with the guy you cheated on him with. Apparently Angel was never actually faithful to Ben by the way.

  • Mokojojo

    This seems like how the social media generation deals w/ cheating and heartbreak nowadays. Instead of burning clothes and cutting off dicks, it’s total social media exposure.

    At this point, I’m just enjoying the drama.

    • Adrian Tanner

      I’m the same age as Ben and I can’t ever live up to this level of extra. This is just messy.

  • Sed

    This is my theory based on typical Grifter behavior. Angel Rivera lived on Ben’s dime in NYC if I’m not mistaken. He will either come back to Ben Masters to live with him( baby I was wrong, your the best thing etc.) or he will move in with another model or a sugar daddy type. He won’t get his own place and stand on his own. Now that is if he’s a grifter. I’m just speculating. I could be totally wrong. I Probably am but several different people on social media who know a lot of real info about Angel (his real name, home town, friends etc) say he’s not the faithful boyfriend type if you know what I mean and is a user. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

    • Checkedout

      Kind of a crazy accusation based on nothing.

      • Sed

        I thought I made it clear that I was speculating. Read my post again. I’m certainly making an inference based on available information but I don’t know. How could I?

  • Jon

    Lmao, I refuse to be drawn into what is basically stan wars, pornstar edition. Already did enough of that with popstars.

    I do hope this doesn’t end badly for anyone involved and Ben gets the help he needs.

  • C3xxx

    From posting private numbers, ER pics, proudly admitting to using the services of a hacker, bunny stew can only be the next step. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/951bb6a3c1c4fab22e93c2b7d2e86730b7574255719197b89a5f67dbe214a8ef.jpg

    • Hereweare

      You totally beat me to this reference. I was going picture-hunting! LOL!

  • Birdy65

    So, to sum up, Ben has been hired by Cockyboys but Angel wanted to stay with Helixstudios and chose to live at Joey’s house but he never explain his decision to Ben causing an unexpected heartbreaking.

    Well, > Ashton Summers, Sean Ford, Ben Master, why the best Helix models move to Cockyboys? 💰 $$$ ?

    • Karla

      See this is a very simple story in the end.

      • Birdy65

        :-)

    • Sed

      He chose to live and Joey’s house because he had already been fucking him for awhile and he’s always going to live with someone. You don’t just move in with someone else and not tell your boyfriend.

    • FrenchBug

      And that sure has worked out GREAT for Sean Ford, hasn’t it?
      But hey maybe CB can pair Ashton Summers and Ben Masters to make this drama even weirder.

    • Karla

      I don’t think it is the money. Very simplified he and other models jumping over to CB probably hope to meet more relevant people in the business. I think both studios make enjoyable scenes and it is hilarious what this “love drama” is spiraling into.

      • FrenchBug

        You are absolutely right about their motivations: funny thing though that every performer who made the move to CB ended up a lot less relevant in the porn world. But they like the bragging rights, it is more “prestigious” and “adult”.

  • Scrapple

    I think Ben needs to take a breather. Away from relationships and away from porn. All this stuff he’s doing isn’t going to change anything. It’s not going to make him feel better and it’s not going to make Angel change his mind. It’s also not ethical or legal.

    Also, if you want to end your relationship and move on to someone else, be honest about it. And if you do end a relationship on bad terms, change all our passwords.

  • Sed

    Angel Rivera is doing a Youtube interview with Cameron Parks tomorrow. I hope these questions get asked and answered. I Won’t hold my breath.

    Did you cheat on Ben?
    Why didn’t you communicate with Ben when he reached out to you?

    Why did you post pics and vids of yourself frolicking with Joey Mills on IG after Ben claimed you cheated on him?

    Why was defending Joey Mills so important to you? It’s the first thing you did in your twitter response which never even mentioned your clearly hurting bf. It almost makes it seem like you already had a long term relationship with Joey that Ben or your followers didn’t know about.

    Lastly: If the relationship with Ben wasn’t working for whatever reason(Ben is clingy, crazy, whatever) why not break up with him and move out of HIS apartment in NYC before you fly to Vegas.

    • Devin

      Exactly.

  • Sed

    I wonder if Joey Mills makes enough money to support Angel Rivera? Anyway Diesel Washington is clearly on Ben’s side as am I.

    That attemp to put the time line in order on all the Drama….Somebody’s Got way too much time on his hands.

    Angel & Joey watch your backs ! “HELL have no fury, like a woman scorned”
    The “Danc’n Queen” obviously needs the attention & will keep this Soap going as long as possible. Getting a Restraining Order is not that complicated & you certainly have enough documentation that he’s acting erratically. Mental Illness is not to be taken lightly ! As recent history has proven. While this may be entertainment to some it’s scary as hell to me.
    Keep it Professional, you’re all too young to be tied down in relationships.
    What’s so bad about just being “FucBuddies” & enjoying being young?

    Everyone involved looks plain awful now. Geez.

    “Severe depression”?? More like severely disturbed. No wonder why Mr. Rivera left him. A relationship with the Tasmanian Devil would be less chaotic.

  • RioVerde

    Okay, I’m a millennial, but I don’t understand the need to post all of this on social media. Maybe it’s a Gen Z thing?

      It’s a narcissist thing. Those middle-aged broads from all the Real Housewives shows are constantly getting into twitter feuds.
