In Wake Of “Feces Vineyard” Lawsuit Against Nica Noelle And Icon Male, Billy Santoro Goes On Libelous Tirade Against Helix, CockyBoys,, And NakedSword

billy santoro fecesHe’s undoubtedly been forbidden from speaking about the recently filed lawsuit against his employer Nica Noelle and her studio Icon Male, but that’s not stopping gay porn star Billy Santoro from speaking out in other bizarre, libelous ways about others in the gay porn industry who have nothing to do with him or the lawsuit. Filed in federal court this week, the “Feces Vineyard” (that’s my nickname for it) lawsuit—in which Santoro is labeled as a whistleblower who helped to expose the fraud, and which includes plaintiff’s photos of feces-stained underwear as evidence, as seen above, right—alleges that Nica Noelle and Icon Male fraudulently rented a home in Martha’s Vineyard to illegally shoot dozens of gay porn movies without the homeowner’s knowledge or consent. Because Santoro is an employee of Icon Male (he recently accepted a position as a production manager), he obviously can’t talk about the case, so instead, he took to Twitter today to falsely accuse several other gay porn studios of abusing their models. Because if you’re Billy Santoro, making hurtful and false accusations against others is the only way to distract yourself from your own disastrous situation, apparently.

Billy Santoro’s potentially libelous tweets were in response to tweets from Conner Habib, who was calling out the Grabby Awards for their support of Michael Lucas. Lucas was recently found guilty in small claims court of not paying an employee, and a civil judgment was issued against him.

bi1After seeing Santoro’s tweet, I replied to Conner Habib to tell him that CockyBoys, Helix, and Men have not actually been “accused of abuses” anywhere, but Santoro’s employer, Icon Male, has:


Billy Santoro saw my replies to Conner Habib, causing him to spiral out of control further, this time threatening Helix, CockyBoys, and NakedSword:

bi2Santoro being a “cunt to studios in order to shut that blog up” is a non sequitur, as his behavior with them would have no impact or effect on Str8UpGayPorn. So, it’s clear that he seems to have lost touch with reality at this point.

Santoro continued his Twitter meltdown throughout the afternoon, later claiming that I am “obsessed” with him, and stating that he is “never going to fuck [my] ugly ass”:


Then, Santoro proceeded with more libel by publishing a completely made-up story about me on his blog, falsely writing that I was “on drugs at a bareback sex party”:


That’s my photo of me (in addition to making libelous statements, Santoro is violating copyright law by using it) tipping a go-go boy at a Hamburger Mary’s in 2005 or 2006, and while I have nothing against bathhouses (or bareback sex parties), I’m sorry to say I haven’t been to one in more than 15 years. Also, I don’t know what a “derivative of crystal meth” is, but I don’t do any form of meth, or any drug whatsoever. (Unless taking a hit of marijuana counts? I’ve done that in social settings three or four times over the last 20 years, and that’s the extent of my drug use.)

Fabricating a story out of thin air about someone’s illegal drug use is more than just libelous, it’s undoubtedly hurtful to people who do suffer from real addiction and real substance abuse problems. While Billy Santoro has never admitted to being a crystal meth user, he did come forward in 2015 to admit that he was an alcoholic, so the fact that he is now knowingly and blatantly lying about someone else’s drug use (in order to, I guess, embarrass or shame the drug user?) is particularly sad, and it shows just how twisted, sick, and disturbed Billy Santoro is, given his own struggle with substance abuse.

Of course, people who make false claims about others are often the ones who are guilty of actually doing the very things they’re lying about. Santoro’s false claims that Helix, CockyBoys, NakedSword, and Men are abusing models could stem from his own highly publicized record of abuse. As many will recall, Billy Santoro was accused of violently assaulting his own husband last year, with Seth Santoro posting publicly about the alleged assault:

While the lawsuit against his employer is still pending, the muzzled Billy Santoro will no doubt continue to spiral out of control on social media, each time an update on the suit is posted here. And remember, as Str8UpGayPorn pointed out yesterday, Billy Santoro may have actually helped to provoke the entire lawsuit against his employer, so it’s undoubtedly causing him a great deal of distress that he can’t discuss any aspect of the suit, or what his role might’ve been in provoking it.

While Santoro is friendly with Nica Noelle and Icon Male now (he has to be, they’re his employer), he was an extremely disgruntled model working for them back in 2015. After accusing Noelle and Icon Male of abuse in early 2015, Santoro then went to a local reporter at MVTimes, informing the reporter that Noelle and Icon Male were indeed illegally shooting porn in a fraudulently rented home there in Martha’s Vineyard. I reported on Santoro’s secret communications with the reporter back in 2016, but as a reminder, here are all the emails obtained by Str8UpGayPorn showing Billy Santoro’s efforts in March of 2015 to get Nica Noelle and Icon Male shut down.

While waiting for the MVTimes to publish a story about the illegal porn shoot, Santoro followed up with the reporter to inform him of the police being called to the fraudulently rented house:

bi7Then, Santoro provided the reporter with additional details in a follow-up email. I’m mentioned in this email because Billy Santoro had attempted to connect me with the reporter, as I was obviously willing to help the reporter with his investigation:

bi6Later, Santoro sent even more emails to the reporter, this time informing the reporter of other Icon Male shoots going on in Martha’s Vineyard, at another location:

billy4Finally, Santoro instructed the reporter to follow porn models Nick Capra and Brendan Patrick on Twitter, as they were apparently tweeting photos from the location:


Billy Santoro’s guilt over what he did three years ago in helping to possibly destroy Nica Noelle and Icon Male (and, ironically, his own job today) probably isn’t fun for him, especially with no means to speak publicly about the pain he’s in. But making false claims and libelous statements on social media about others (Helix, Str8UpGayPorn, NakedSword, Men, CockyBoys) could make things even worse for him, as it could potentially put him on the receiving end of his own lawsuit. I don’t know if it’s worth it to sue someone for defamation over a stupid lie about being on meth at a bathhouse, but one of those multi-million dollar studios might take issue with being falsely accused of abusing their employees.

Stay tuned for the next update (and the next Santoro meltdown), as Nica Noelle and Icon Male now have less than three weeks to reply to the lawsuit.
