One almost feels bad for 64-year old Gary Sparks. Almost.
The Oregonian gay allegedly swiped $400,000 from real estate investors for a much younger homo hustler.
Sparks is accused of taking the 23-year-old man on extravagant shopping sprees in Portland and Hollywood, Calif. – spending $72,000 on a Mercedes convertible, $9,000 on a Rolex watch, $41,000 for a one-year lease on a West Hollywood apartment, $3,000 on a Louis Vuitton gym bag and more than $40,000 on clothes from high-end retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue. And after buying all those clothes, Sparks spent another $2,000 getting them altered.
Police says Sparks, a former teacher who divorced his wife five years ago, fell in love with the young hustler. Unfortunately, things went south when he ran out of dough and the hustler ran out on him.
Poor thing. Literally.
