Exclusive: Nick Capra Calls Nica Noelle “Belligerent,” Says Icon Male House “Covered In Rodent Feces”

Posted August 24, 2015 by with 51 comments


For most of 2015, gay porn star Nick Capra has been a staunch defender of embattled Icon Male director Nica Noelle. Just this past weekend, Capra—who has both a personal and professional relationship with Noelle—came to Noelle’s defense when he dismissed fellow performer Brent Corrigan’s accusations against her as “misogynistic.”


Since January of this year, Corrigan and over half a dozen other gay porn stars (including Billy Santoro, Dirk Caber, Jessie Colter, Caleb King, and Seth Santoro) have individually and repeatedly accused Nica Noelle of abusive treatment while working (or attempting to work) for her on Icon Male shoots. Last month, performer Colton Grey spoke out about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Nica Noelle after she allegedly left him stranded at an airport in the middle of the night. And just as he did with Brent Corrigan, Nick Capra quickly jumped in to dismiss the negative claims and strongly defend his friend Nica Noelle.

In addition to marginalizing Nica Noelle’s accusers, Nick Capra has also attempted to dismiss those who have reported on the accusers’ allegations, including Str8UpGayPorn editor Zach Sire (me):

By all accounts, Nick Capra and Nica Noelle are extremely close friends, both personally and professionally. Noelle has directed Capra in at least a dozen Icon Male scenes over the past two years, which have earned the veteran gay porn star roughly $20,000, based on average industry scene rates. Capra has called Noelle his “ride or die,” and last May was actively helping her recruit models for Icon Male.

In fact, there was a time when Nick Capra considered Nica Noelle an “erratic” and “belligerent” director whose behavior would “drive Icon Male into the ground.” There was a time when, after one Icon Male shoot, Nick Capra promised he would “never work for her again.” And there was even a time when Nick Capra complained that Icon Male models were sleeping in a house that was “covered in rodent feces.” That time was actually less than one year ago, in January, 2015, when Nick Capra sent a strongly-worded email to Nica Noelle’s boss, Icon Male’s Jon Blitt.

Here is Nick Capra’s January, 2015 email to Icon Male owner Jon Blitt, as obtained by Str8UpGayPorn:

Hey Jon,

I wanted to give you a quick heads up on a recent shoot I was just on, with Nica. In short, we were all kept waiting for Nica to show up to begin shooting until 10:45 p.m. That translated to us filming until 6:00 a.m. Myself and two other models needed to be on a 9:00 a.m. ferry to the mainland to get to the airport. So, none of us slept a single minute that night. I pulled Nica aside, and very kindly expressed to her that talent is not supposed to be kept on a set, with no sleep, when given a 7:00 p.m. call time. Nica became extremely defensive with me, borderline belligerent. She began yelling and telling me, “That’s entertainment!”

I have been in the gay adult industry almost 13 years, and I’ve never been kept without sleep and yelled at by the director. The same thing happened the night prior (entire cast kept awake all night, into the morning) as well.

I also feel inclined to tell you that the house that the models sleep in is covered in rodent feces. Nica was told this last time I shot for her, and failed to address it.

I have defended her in the past, to others, because her reputation for being erratic and belligerent does precede her. I will never work for her again. And, her behavior is affecting your company. Other models are starting to convey the same experiences as myself, and the gay side of the industry is small. I can tell you, as someone whom has flourished in 13 years of this industry, that it won’t be long before Nica has driven Icon Male into the ground.

I have an extremely loyal fan base (feel free to check my Twitter @NickCapra) but I have chosen to come directly to you and not go public with this, denouncing Nica’s reputation. If you have any questions regarding any of the incidences, feel free to contact me via email or phone.

As of post time, it’s unclear what caused Nick Capra to go back on his word and work with Nica Noelle again, but the two have obviously been able to repair their friendship since this January email. It’s also not clear why Nick Capra has repeatedly tried to dismiss and marginalize the gay porn stars who have accused Nica Noelle of abusive behavior, given that all of Nick Capra’s complaints against Nica Noelle in the above email are identical to the ones coming from other performers (except for the complaint about rodent feces, that one’s new).

Str8UpGayPorn has reached out to Nick Capra for clarification and will update this post if he responds.


  • Mike Julius

    What should the last rat off a sinking ship do? Drown.

    • Dazzer

      Crap all over the place first, if La Nica is captain, I’d have thought.

  • Todd

    On behalf of your DL readers, THANK you for avoiding the nipple slip … http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m42itz9Q7V1r3dfmg.gif

    • SleepInTheYard

      It’s a relief, indeed! lol

    • kkdd1

      I think her nipple clip is boner killer on any type of porn site !

  • R.A.M.J

    They’re probably boning each other and he doesn’t want to come out as Bisexual because it may hurt his fan base.
    Of course im joking BUT, I wouldn’t be surprised.

    • JohnnyVooDoo

      Thats actually something interesting. I can see that and it would only make sense…But how is revealing bisexual tendencies bad when making gay porn ??

  • sxg

    I’m wondering if there were any twitter posts between the two of them that alluded to this. If there is it’s definitely something everyone missed.

  • R.A.M.J

    Also, “Trashy Blogs?” This coming from a porn star? I love porn too and a few actors seem really cool, but calling a gay porn blog trashy when you yourself are a gay porn star is the Pot calling the kettle black

  • daniel harcourt

    Been obvious for sometime Nica is a classic crazy Jekyll and Hyde character but she only reflects perfectly the same two faced stance of everyone in Gay Porn after a while. Capra publicity praises her yet privately condemns her to the owner? How is this different from Howard at Fabscout who does the same time and again?

    Publicly they all suck up to anyone who gets them jobs or clients hired..privately they slam and dish.

    Nica just gives one more ammunition than most producers.

    • Myko

      I agree about Howard, yet these dumb fucks still have him represent them

  • Todd

    Et Tu, Nick ?? (queue the ‘Ultimately Nick addressed the issues like a grown man’ meme ….. when the real reason for the change (and lying by Nick) is that he knows where his bread is buttered) …….http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmmzb5rNRv1qiggm3o1_500.gif

  • CBW

    Whenever I hear “That’s entertainment!” now I can’t help but think of the drug addled and deranged Mason Verger cutting off his face in the film version of “Hannibal”. At least Nica isn’t that unhinged…that we know of!

  • Todd

    Someone is TOTALLY loving being able to add Nick Capra’s name to that list of Nica accusers in the future. https://38.media.tumblr.com/aaa7d9c849407ab4c6db4432a555e056/tumblr_miu8cjsRw11s5yrl7o1_500.gif

      That’s a wig right?

  • WillG

    I don’t think it’s hard to figure out what happened. Nick was given a lot of work by Icon after he wrote the letter, in return for his not “going public” and “denouncing” Nica. She probably also went out or her way to make sure that from then on his shoots went smoothly. Thus he’s now become her biggest cheerleader and defender. For him to attack others who made the same complaints publicly that he made privately is, of course, reprehensible and cowardly..

    • Mimi B

      It’s also extremely hypocritical. #HypocriticalCapra

  • mariodemocrat

    Lol: For the record, there will continue to be models I don’t want to work with & they will continue to go to the gay hate blogs for revenge.

  • John

    Nick is a piece of shit if he is calling out actors for saying the same thing he did 8 mos ago…..dude just lost all credibility…

  • mariodemocrat

    RE: Nica’s #staymad and #keephating twitter tags: I don’t think anyone reading or writing about this is mad or hating. After all, most of us here don’t have to deal with her. When one gawks at a train wreck, it’s not out of hate or anger for the train. As usual, this bitch is completely deluded. #StayCrazy, Alex Forrest.

    • slipperyslope

      I agree. And the fact that she and Nick Capra use things like #reductive and #lawofparsimony in these Twitter arguments make them seem the very opposite of #erudite.

      • Strepsi


        • slipperyslope

          lol… That automatically made me think of “Clueless”-

          “I’ll be seeing you.”

          “I hope not sporadically.”

    • Strepsi

      It seems the porn actors are acting for basic Charles Dickens level work standards, including a couple hours shut-eye, no feces in their workspace, and not to be yelled at. And then the boss goes “Haters gonna hate!”

  • seeker630

    Isn’t this horse dead?

  • Ceecee

    I’m mostly just over Nick and Nica’s attempts to have their cake and eat it too on Twitter. They spend one tweet claiming harassment, victimization etc. and then at breakneck speed they’re calling people garbage and worthless and just being general cunts.
    Pick your strategy bitch, trying to do both just makes you look like a twat.

  • Myko

    Please can you not run any stories about Nick Capra again. He CREEPS ME OUT. I think I will have to start a GFM so I can have therapy.

    I am waiting for the Capra Stan’s to hit back (but they normally lurk on thesword ) or tweeting him but getting no response back.

    Who uses hashtags anymore ?

    Favourite line : “I have been in the gay adult industry almost 13 years” and you are still one of life’s losers

    • Jay (Jimmy)

      there will be no fighting back. i completely support Nick and Nica. This is very old news and as usual Zach is ONLY reporting part of the story. We are OVER it! Have a great day!

      • Jay (Jimmy)

        And by the way I don’t usually post here because Zach deletes all of my responses. Imagine that! Anything he doesn’t agree with he ends up deleting! SMH

        • Mimi B

          Dude… You’re forever a shit head! Crawl back into that house & lay some rat turds for Nick’s viewing pleasure.

        • BjorkNut

          Well it is his fucking blog dumbness. You do know this isn’t the fucking New York Times

          • Jay (Jimmy)

            only you would use a picture of Ann Coulter and be serious!

      • Ceecee

        Wat? The last time this happened with Colton Grey, Nick personally posted the text exchange which was EXACTLY what Colton said happened and made her look like a crazy bitch.
        How could you possibly support these awful people when they post direct evidence against themselves?

      • mariodemocrat

        Your friends are losers. #rideordie? Good lord, you’re middle-aged!

  • Zealot

    Nick could rake in a fortune making Icon Male Survival Kits and selling them to his co-stars. I would recommend the contents of said kit should include: Food (stuff with lots of preservatives might be recommended), a laminated list of all local restaurants which deliver, a laminated list of local Uber operators, a portable inflatable mattress and pillow + hand air pump (deluxe kits might include an electric pump with Accu-Jack attachments), white noise CD with sound-canceling headphones/ear buds (again contingent upon which kit is purchased), Blanket, Xanax, a copy of the pamphlet “Dirk Caber’s Recommendations for Passing Time on an Icon Male Set” (fascinating reading, the chapter on knitting is a can’t miss!), sleeping mask and maps to local hotels and all-night clinics.

  • yaoirabbit

    So now we can add sellout to the list of unsavory details that continue to come out about Nick Capra.

  • beariac
  • JeanGenet

    Nick Capra is incredibly gross, his insecurity is beyond. His claims of achievement are ridiculous. He’s clearly still struggling with aspects of tragedy and addiction in his life. That he’s had a rough life, true, but that he’s turned it into selfish narcissistic pats on the back is ridiculous. Especially when he’s taking advantage of the vulnerability of others, mainly his clearly troubled fan base of self identified outsiders and people that are dealing with honest isolation (which consists of mainly 3 people) which honestly believe him to be his best friend and supporter when he’s clearly just using them for his agenda and occasional Amazon wish list items. The man is transparent in his ego. Get real!

  • WhimsyCotton

    Eww. Hypocrites are so tacky. And girl, stop it with the hashtags. You’re practically part of Madonna’s generation.

    • Dazzer

      Madonna as in Madonna and Child or Madonna as in Ms Ciccone?

      • WhimsyCotton

        The one with a lower Social Security number on her card.

        • Dazzer


      • Seaguy

        Madonna the Queen of Pop,the top selling female recording artist of all time. Proud to be party of her generation!

  • kkdd1

    It sounds like Nick has had that change of heart that only MONEY can buy

  • lance

    with that face and his attitudes and lies… all I have to say “GROSS”

  • JJ24

    I wonder what could have changed his mind

    • Strepsi

      $20,000 is not a lot of money to fuck someone in a pile of ratshit while being yelled at.
      That said, where do I sign up?

      • JJ24

        Honey, i’m talking about the hush money he was paid.

  • Ricky

    I just hope this Icon Male drama and the Rentboy collapse do not send Nick Capra back to drugs and liquor. Though I personally find the very over-exposed Mr. Capra somewhat churlish (and now a proven hypocrite) he still seems like he’s not a bad guy at heart.

    I just hope he finds a job in construction (or something) because his porn days, unless he barebacks on camera for Michael Lucas, seem very limited.

    • Bradster

      Who cares what decisions he makes with his life? He’s a grown adult over 40 years old, not a teenager. Hopefully he has the maturity to “survive” a twitter feud and closure of an escort service.
