Liberace’s Former Lover Scott Thorson Behind Bars Once Again

1120-scott-thorson-mug-1Scott Thorson can’t catch a break lately. The one-time look-alike boy toy of legendary piano tinkler Liberace is in jail once again, reports TMZ. The 54-year-old was locked up in Reno today for probation violation and failing to show up in court.

It’s the latest in a series of legal misadventures for Thorson, who was forced to watch Matt Damon relive his glory days as a kept boy in HBO’s Behind the Candelabra behind bars. According to TMZ, Thorson has been on probation since September following a conviction for burglary and ID theft conviction. Other sources report that Thorson had also tested positive for meth and had pleaded with the judge that he wanted to get sober. He’d been given a suspended sentence on the condition a completed a stint in rehab.

      A stupid ugly slimeball, and fool. Wonder how much that horrible implant or plastic surgery cost Liberace?

      @BlogShag: Who cares? Liberace made him have the plastic surgery. We certainly know what it cost Scott Thorson is get involved with Liberace when he was only 16-years-old.

      The biopic was based on his autobiography, so if he hadn’t wanted to watch it all he would have had to do is not sell the rights for what I assume was a nice bit of cash.

      I can’t help but wonder what his life would be like today had he never met Liberace. Theirs was the antithesis of a healthy relationship.

      @Gigi Gee: i could not agree more with your comment. It seems a bit odd he drove around in sports cars and such stoned out if his mind but not ONCE got arrested while he was with Liberace. Once it was over, the law seemed to have no problem noticing these things.

      This is what happens to young “twinks” once their “lights” no longer twinkle and now have to pay rent and take care of their own drug problems. I never met him but I do see him as the ultimate “stuck up little bitch” right along with Calvin Kline’s joke of a boy toy.

      It’s odd that the article said he was “Forced” to watch Matt Damon in the movie since he got paid and was out doing publicity for it.

      As for him ending up in jail….how difficult is it to show up somewhere? He went to jail because he didn’t show up? That almost sounds like he wanted to go back.

      @Cam: Actually, it’s amusing that Queerty has now mis-reported that detail twice.

      He was in jail when the movie came out but he couldn’t see it then because, of course, the jail didn’t have HBO.

      As most gay people know it is not uncommon for older wealthy gay men to keep boys….Thorson has been whining and playing the victim for years…He settle out of court for $95,000, three cars, and two pet dogs….I came out in !975 and though I never met Scott I did see him at the bars and bath houses, we are the same age and in 1977 I saw him at the baths in L.A…. Liberace was not there…. Thorson is a crook and a whore…. There are not many of us bath house boys left…But that little b**th acted like she was the queen of Sheba, with all her furs, diamonds and cars…. Every boy knows that no matter what daddy says your days are numbered… There is always someone younger and hotter waiting to take your place.

      If I saw him at the baths in 1977 I’d run as fast as I could – freakin’ ugly, and isn’t too bright

      @Gigi Gee: He was/is a petty thief, a gay hustler, a pathological liar and the list goes on… He made his own bed…. No one tricked him or made him do anything he did not want to do…. Back then drugs were easy to get and life was just one big party…Liberace dumped him because he was sleeping around and going overboard with the drugs…He was the problem, after Liberace died he played the victim and blamed Liberace through a veil of crocodile tears… If there was any love it was his love of the lifestyle, his motives were almost entirely mercenary. It makes me sick to my stomach every time he floats to the surface to rear his ugly head. The only victims here are the media and anyone who believes this pathetic pity party.

      Liberace was a pedophile… Thorson was 16 when they met. Liberace should have gone to prison.

      There’s the truth… Behind the Candlelabra.

      Scott probably feels more comfortable being “kept” by the prison system and he can be someone’s bf as well.

      Liberace could legally and psychologically be defined as an ephebophiliac (sexual desire for adolescents 14-19). He was too big of a celebrity to fail, especially after his winning lawsuits with tabloid scandal sheets. And yes, he should have been arrested for molestation.

      @guest4ever: @TampaBayTed: Well aren’t we so high and mighty. FYI plenty of gay teens out there having sex with older guys…I was kicked to the curb by my family when I was 15…. Some people have no choice…..You have limited options for survival, sell drugs, sell your body, steal or eat garbage and live in a box…. I knew young gay teens who did it all and still do. I was NEVER kept by a daddy but a girl has to do something until you turn 18. A necessary evil.

      @guest4ever: As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in persons 16 years of age or older typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest toward prepubescent children (generally age 11 years or younger, though specific diagnostic criteria for the disorder extends the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13)….Scoot Thorson was Jail-bait but he was not a child….You seem to have an unnatural association with the term pedophilia….I hope that you are not a victim or a victimizer…

      @AuntieChrist: He mentioned it in the context of a grown man having sex with a minor. You’re the one who seems to have an unnatural association with the term pedophilia. She we be concerned about you?

      @DShucking: Should you be?… There is a difference between a chicken queen and a pedophile… Not much, but there is a distinction… I have been in a monogamous relationship for 24 years and I have no need to defend myself to you… I’m not sure why you are defending that religious nut anyway… Coming on a gay site quoting and misquoting bible scripture seems rather odd to me.

      You do a lot of projecting on Queerty. Accusing someone of being a pedophile only brings the attention back to you. So I’ll ask again, should we be concerned about you when it comes to underage boys or as you call them, ‘chickens’?

      @Caleb in SC: Of course. But back in reality, Liberace never forced Thorsen to do anything.

      @DShucking: I never accused anyone of anything…Nor do I have any unwholesome affinity towards underage boys. Projecting? Really? Were did you learn that term? Psych 101…? This conversation is over.

      “You seem to have an unnatural association with the term pedophilia….I hope that you are not a victim or a victimizer…” – you made the inference.

      @DShucking: You certainly fixated on the whole issue. A poor choice of words on my part putting in victimizer was an after thought.

      @guest4ever: Scott Thorson’s birthdate is January 23, 1959. He met Liberace in 1977 which would make him 18 years old. Liberace was no pedophile. That relationship was no different than straight, wealthy men always having pretty, young women on their arms. Money, power & fame is quite seductive and as far as I see it, both parties are getting what they want out of the relationship.
