Taylor Reign Posts Video Requesting Alleged Past Due Payments From CockyBoys—And Now Sean Ford Is Weighing In

Taylor Reign’s ongoing allegations that CockyBoys owes him over $18,000 in past due payments for scenes, commissions, and other earnings as a former CockyBoy exclusive aren’t going away, and the performer has taken to Twitter yet again asking the studio to pay him. CockyBoys has not responded publicly to the validity or accuracy of Reign’s claims, but here’s Reign’s latest video, posted this afternoon:

This video follows Reign’s tweets from last week, in which he made the same accusations about money he says CockyBoys owes him. Given the content of this latest video, it’s clear the studio and Reign have not made any progress in resolving the issue.

While CockyBoys has not responded to Reign, CockyBoy exclusive Sean Ford—a former co-star of Reign’s (as seen above)—took to Twitter shortly after Reign’s video to offer his own thoughts on the studio, which are in stark contrast to Reign’s. Ford wrote that he has been shown “the utmost respect” by CockyBoys, and he said that his treatment at the studio “should be the industry standard”:

Ford didn’t tag Reign in his tweet or make any mention of Reign’s allegations, but it’s clear that this subtweet was posted in response to Reign’s accusations.

This is a developing story…

    The hilarious thing about Sean’s tweet is that it is so stupidly over-the-top and vacuous that it sounds written by a PR executive.
    And you know what that gratuitous subtweet reminds me of? When all the 8TeenBoy twinks suddenly felt the need to tweet how happy they were to work at Helix and how well they were treated and what a big family it was right at the time where the exodus and the accusations and counter-accusations were flying at the main house.
    Coincidental and totally spontaneous.

    • Sean

      Yet you think what Taylor is doing is OK? If only there was a mechanism to solve disputes over money set up SOMEWHERE in the country. Maybe they could have a person hear the issues and determine who is right on the merits and the law and decide the case, BUT instead he takes to Twitter. Just like his little bitch of a namesake Taylor Swift who whines that she doesnt like who bought her catalog.

      • FrenchBug

        Put simply, few people have the funds to put up for legal representation. It is long and expensive and incredibly maddening to have to go through to get a few thousand dollars you feel you are owed.
        Also, rightly or wrongly, many are probably under the reasonable assumption that sex workers are not exactly viewed as sympathetic in the justice system.
        Taking this dispute publicly is the equivalent of pressing for a settlement ahead of a trial: hoping the embarrassment prompts the stronger more established party, that can afford the lengthy proceedings but may not want the bad publicity, will yield to make it go away.
        Public shame is still a potent weapon of the weak against businesses.

        • peter

          Plaintiff attorneys usually work on contingency and if successful get some portion of the settlement (usually 30-40%) as a fee. So if the attorney thinks he has a case, there’d be no up-front fee involved.

          Whether it be plumbing or sex work, a contract is a contract. A civil court or arbitrator is indifferent.

          • FrenchBug

            I love how “He only has to give a third of the money he manages to get back to the attorney” sounds like a sharp rebuttal to my point to you.
            And you will note I said that part of the psychology is the assumption sex workers wouldn’t get a fair hearing; not that it is a fact.

            In the end, if YOU were in his shoes, you’d go to the justice system. Great. More power to you.
            My response was only that handling this differently does not mean TR is a horrible person or an asshole or a shameful con artist. I was pointing out that there are decent not-illogical reasons to be reluctant to do that and try other ways to get your money back.
            I don’t know what is the best way – I know public shaming is not an outrageous way to go about it.

          Taylor Swift hate is ALWAYS a necessity! We should not like that cunt for any reason.

      • Shawn

        Just because there is a system to recover money you are owed doesn’t mean it works properly. Getting a judgement is just one part of the battle, you then have to get them to pay up and if they want to be dicks about it there are ways to delay it almost indefinitely. Putting them on blast is more likely to light a fire under them just because they won’t want the PR hit.

      • peter

        It’s called binding arbitration. Of course Reign would have to produce documentation supporting his claim.

    • Shawn

      I made a comment on this site a while ago throwing shade at Sean and about a week later a very, very blatant PR person replied to me telling me how wrong I was and how wonderful Sean is doing. I think he has people doing some of his social stuff but he’s clearly not hiring people who are talented at it.

      • FrenchBug

        Whether is Lady Gaga, Bernie and Butti, Kyle Ross or Sean Ford, folks, listen to me: there is NOTHING more counter-productive from a PR perspective than fanbases swarming the slightest critical comment on social media with often ridiculous cultish and vacuous odes to whoever you feel was unduly attacked.
        It does not convince anybody but it is freaky, off-putting, often laughable, rarely relevant to the initial comment, and idiotic and tends to drive away the neutral parties that did not have a dog in the disagreement.
        Shrugging off bitchy commenters (among which I include myself) is 100% the right way.

    • peter

      Vacuous? Over-the-top? It’s simply the language one would find in business referral.

      • Hush-ins

        Which is why he said next it almost looked like it was written by PR team.

  • Devin

    Sean Ford needs to have a tall glass of STFU. No one asked you anything sweetie. Taylor is speaking about his situation, not yours or anyone else’s. Mind your business girl

    • Sean

      Maybe Taylor needs to LEARN the proper way to actually get PAID if you think you are owed money. He basically sounds like Taylor Swift. A giant whiner. If he REALLY wants resolution, he could file a case for less than $100, Instead he is trying to increase his social media footprint for doing Only Fans or JFF.

      • peter

        Don’t get into a pissing contest like this! Take it to OnlyFansOnly and have a hot hate-fuck!

      • Devin

        Proper way to get paid? Please tell me more

    • GayhawkAZ

      Sean needs to go back to taking out of focus, heavily filtered, artsy photos on Instagram or go back to Europe on his john’s patron’s dime and leave the adults to have their conversation. I thought he was bad at Helix, but as a Cockyboy, he needs to take a cue and zip his lip.

      • Shawn

        Honestly I liked him at Helix since he was just there to fuck, but yeah the artsy, overly edited “i’m so tortured” shit he’s put out since he left is awful.

        • FrenchBug

          I was never a huge fan but I think as he gets older, the fact he looks really odd (“alien head” as SXG so delicately put it somewhere in this thread lol) starts overcoming the “cute-twink” thing he had going.
          And, yes, he takes himself very seriously, a mix of his Helix popularity getting to his head like with so many and the Cockyboys ethos, and yes it is offputting.

          • peter

            “alien head” agrumentum ad hominum doesn’t address the substance of the issue.

        • GayhawkAZ

          That’s just it, I didn’t even think he was that good. Twinkish? Sure. Able to take on the hung tops of Helix? Okay. But I still maintain that he intentionally set out to derail Blake Mitchell’s relationship with his (now-ex) boyfriend and then just basked in the controversy because it got him attention. (Fortunately, he met Alec and they’re awesome…but still.)

          Sean thinks he’s more “edgy” and cool than he is. He does porn and while that’s great, he’s not yet achieved the level of greatness that is going to keep him memorable…nor do I think he will. He’s not on the level of Al Parker, Lance, Leo Ford, Casey Donovan, etc. (You know…like actually legends.)

          • peter

            No, Casey derailed the relationship by putting Blake/Lane’s perfectly seasoned cast-iron skillet in the dishwasher (the little bitch!) That, and not the infidelities, was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

          As I wrote in another thread, he’s basically Max Ryder v 2.0.

  • sxg

    No one asked for your fucking opinion you alien-headed bitch! As other sketchy as fuck studios have proven, they selectively treat some of their models like shit, while they treat others like royalty until they don’t. Even worse, some of those models they treat better are even given incentives for deflecting any negative attention to their exclusive studios. Are you going to be one of those cunts, Roger?

    • peter

      My impression over the years is that Jake Jaxon runs a pretty above-the-board operation. While some of there stuff is a little too artsy-fartsy for my taste, I never had the impression that they mistreated their models.

  • Marcus Collack

    Sean… My Love! This is not relevant to his lack of payment MY Love!! Of course you’re happy you probably got your check, My Love! So… I’m going to need you to stand down and stay in your lane, My Love!

    Pride is thankfully over. Now y’all should have some free time to hit me up.

    In this sordid saga, Taylor is Taylor, Jake & RJ are Scooter and Sean is Demi? I can’t wait to find out who the other stand-ins are. https://media3.giphy.com/media/Y0JGMdMrjTyD4F2ePR/giphy.gif
    Cause if it did, we’d all be in conversion therapy.

      Why do you have to make a reference to that song?

      • Scrapple

        Because…Taylors.

        • Hush-ins

          By the way, Ben Masters is Justin.

          • Scrapple

            And here I thought Ben had maybe learned his Twitter lesson.

          • Hush-ins

            He only learned boyfriend lesson from his own mess. He needs legal trouble for that. Cole needs to learn one too if he wants to ally himself with studios who do not perform model background check.

  • B.C.

    I like Taylor (well, slightly less his current fake blond look), also like “principessa” Sean and I definitely like CockyBoys. So, it’s hard for me to differentiate who is right or wrong. One thing is certain, Taylor will hardly accomplish anything by twitter battling. He needs to sit down with former employers tête-à-tête.

    • WorkBitch

      My understanding is that getting to sit down with them / talking directly with them is exactly what he’s been trying to do for quite a while. But apparently they were too busy with travelling and Camp Cockyboys to get back to him…

  • Julio Grandeur

    Well i ate food today so world hunger doesnt exist
    I came home to a furnished apartment so homelessness isnt real

    Sean needs to butt out with the unnecessary passive aggressive dismissal. its just not relevant, sis

  • CLElover216

    QUESTION… who in this forum would continue to work for an employer after even one missed pay period?

    the way it works is the studio asks one of their popular stars to defend them publicly. What choice does he have? He’s under contract with them. So he said his experience has been good, which is probably true. Both situations can be true. Studios are often sketchy about what they have to pay out, as they don’t expect models will hire a lawyer and sue them. It rarely happens, so they know they can get away with things.

    • peter

      I don’t think Sean was asked to do anything. It’s a very carefully worded commendation based on his experiences and what he’s seen of how his fellow models have been treated.

      Based on reading his tweets, it sounds like Reign had an exaggerated misunderstanding regarding his compensation. He needs to produce documentation to support his claims. Since he probably doesn’t have this, he takes to twitter in the hope that Jake Jaxson will throw him a couple of grand to stfu.

    So the cesspool of the comments section of this …thing yet again shows itself to be where the bottom feeders hang out. Have y’all not yet realised that you’re learning nothing new here? These ‘articles’ are just a summary of the stuff gathered from social media. It’s hardly ground breaking journalism. But I guess it gives all you trolls a safer space to spew your bile.
    I wonder who the “PR person” is that made Taylor speak in his newest video? Because obviously that’s what has happened, right? I mean it must have if y’all are so convinced that Sean has someone speaking his words for him. Because god forbid he have a brain that can form his own opinion from his own perspective. So whilst Taylor has been airing his dirty laundry in public, that’s ok because y’all are getting your gossip needs fed, but the minute Sean decides to speak of his own experiences he is subject to childish and fucking ridiculous personal attacks and is told to “stfu”. Screams “jealous bitches” to me, but what do I know 🤷🏻‍♀️
