The stereotype that pretty people are dumb is as insensitive as it is untrue. In this case, however, it seems to hold some weight.
Jarec Wentworth aka Teofil Brank of Sean Cody and Men.com has been arrested by undercover FBI agents for reportedly extorting a wealthy victim by threatening to make public the victim’s embarrassing “sexual liaisons.”
Brank was put under surveillance after he successfully blackmailed the unnamed wealthy gentleman out of some $500,000 in cash and an Audi R8 valued at $180,000.
But after he (very greedily) demanded another million and a condo, the man went to the FBI for help. They set up a sting at a Los Angeles Starbucks, and on March 4th, arrested Brank. Inside Brank’s car at the time of arrest was a loaded .357 Magnum revolver with additional ammunition.
According to Str8UpGayPorn (LINK VERY NSFW), Brank was denied bail due to flight risk and remains in the custody of U.S. Marshals until his arraignment on March 26th, when official charges will be filed. They also note that his recent roles in gay porn have found him playing a detective and listening in on other people’s thoughts, for what it’s worth.
Brank made several threats via text message (again, not the best idea), which were included in the FBI affidavit, some of which read:
I do have a twitter and your photos. Lies can be made or Maybe it’s the truth
Check my twitter, the conversation will grown [sic] and questions will be asked. You lied to me and treated me like shit. I asked again and you put it behind you. Now it’s biting your ass
I want a new car, motorcycle, and both hands full of cash
I want a condo here in LA. Bachelor pad. You have a taste I like. 2 bed Max. Perfer [sic] one. I want 300,000 cash. You can and will. I want this ASAP like yesterday. So you can be at peace.
If convicted, Brank faces up to 15 years in prison, and perhaps more due to the loaded gun.
a porn star with less-than-stellar ethics?? Surely, you jest!
Your ass will only get you so far, loser.
Cory M. Warren
well, if you only have to rely on your looks, instead of developing personality or intellegence, of course you are not likely to be smart; smarts take workethic, of which you can hardly say porn stars have.
I’m giggling to beat the band thinking about this gorgeous hunk thinking with the wrong head… AGAIN!!! I’ve heard of greedy but this prank goes to new heights! Hope he enjoys ‘Bubba’ and his other ‘intelligent’ friends in the pokey-poke-poke!
Greed is not so pretty!
What an asswipe!
Let the schadenfreude commence…
If you are going to steal get enough to last the rest of your life and leave the country, don’t fuck around with small change.
No sympathy for him.
This crap only works on married or closeted gay men. If you are living your life openly there is nothing anyone can do to shame or blackmale you. I would rather out myself in almost any situation over paying someone for silence.
Lol #hastalavista stupid man…
Thanks for not referring to him as a porn “star.”
pathetic nasty whore-silly little whore, tricks are for the rest of us…
Ha ha. Greedy and stupid
Aww, I like him
Damn, I really liked him. Like…….a lot. But not only do I not have a thug fetish, I absolutely despise them. I know porn is just a fantasy, but it’s like finding out your favorite actor or actress is a major homophobe. Thanks for the boner-kill, Jarec!
She is not gonna last long in prison. I mean I was almost interested in porn again for 5 seconds seeing that body.
Oh well, if you can’t do the time… something something.
What could go wrong with this plan ? ! Greedy and not to smart.
Well at least it’s not for meth or murder
Dumb ass would have gotten away with it if he had taken his first half million and disappeared to a quiet life. By extorting a second time all he did was tell his victim that it was NEVER going to end and that his only option was to go to the FBI.
Greedy idiot. That ass will be popular in the pen.
Felicia left seancody.com because he didn’t like doing bareback pr0n. Sounds like he’s going to get a lot of practice where he’s heading!
Yeah hos and houseboys will always try to con someone out of money. Try dating men your own age instead of buying boys and this won’t happen.
Gorgeous body but what an incredibly horrible person. I’m really curious who the guy was he was blackmailing. Who paid him half a million !!!!
This is exactly why porn so- called stars should not be put on a pedestal to be admired, idolize, and worshiped like they are something special. How many have turned out to be murderers, robbers, druggies,prostitutes, full of mental issues and [email protected]? And when their pathologies are exposed, many are shocked and disappointed. Well what do you expect. This profession/ lifestyle is not going to attract the most level headed, kind, loving,sensible, spiritual, together minded people. ..
Now he will be giving it away for free.
I try not to be one of those judgmental folks who assumes that all or most adult film performers are broken people, but I do declare that they don’t make it easy.
Jarec was a beautiful guy when he started out. But, He seemed to age and get really hairy really fast. Also, it’s hard to believe that Jarec is 6’3″ (from his videos that is).
If you are a fan of Jarec, this is big (and sad) news. However, the real story is who was being extorted. The only listing for this story on google news is Queerty. Perhaps the insider gossip franchises are giving the extorted guy time to prepare himself for this story breaking. I hope someone at Queerty verified that this “Teo” is the guy who worked as Jarec.
@tdh1980: “I try not to be one of those judgmental folks who assumes that all or most adult film performers are broken people, but I do declare that they don’t make it easy.”
Back in the day, guys performed in gay adult and probably the only “thing” they had to deal with was the guy with the camera and whatever person they were partnered with. TODAY, there is this entire new festering sub-culture of broken, abused, psychotic, parasitic people guys run up against when they dare to do a gay adult video.
What a FOO! A complete IDIOT! She gonna learn to like bareback bitch sex really soon! Bless her heart!!!
Another porn star down the drain…hahaha
Many of them, like Wentworth, are admittedly gorgeous, which makes it too easy to forget again.
Having sex for money is still most people’s definition of prostitution. The presence of cameras while they’re ‘on the clock,’ and calling themselves ‘models,’ may be enough to blunt legal scrimmages, but it doesn’t change the honest definition.
Thus, maybe there should be a little embarrassment accompanying any honest shock we’re sensing. After all, how hard far a leap is it, really, from prostitute to extortionist?
If I remember correctly, Wentworth’s deal with Men.com, nearly a year old now, was for about 26 scenes with no more bottoming (like he did at Cody). It’s tough not to suppose he’s soon going to be missing the days he called his own shots like that.
@BGinBigD: …or maybe he’ll come to like bareback sex a lot less than he used to like it. Do they put pretty boys like this in the general population? 🙂
WTF???? Im a law abiding citizen of the US and nasty, vile, violent criminals in prison are going to be handed this guy’s ass on a cement platter! Its just not fair!!! T_T
Now too, you will wait in vain for any other current gay porn star to say a single critical word about Jarec, no matter how much worse any new details become leading up to his trial. It’s a business whose formidable ability to cover up secrets and close ranks has everything to teach our politicians.
@Tackle: Excellent comment along with TDH1980. So disappointing.
Damn! What happened to the good old days, when a porned out hooker was happy to make a buck turning a trick with a quick blow and go?
i hope you like your new condo…in the pen
Every one involved with porn and prostitution have a deranged mind.
When has a porn star, gay or straight, ever been an upstanding member of the community? They all seem to be criminals and drug addicts.
so true, I wonder if he suddenly came to the realization that hes a slut men just use and throw away. Well he is being thrown away. Black mailers get caught when they become greedy. I don’t think he will be in some hole state prison. He may have a little black book and this was just one name on his list and there may be a few men that don’t want him singing. A tell all book could be a money maker if he decides to take pen to paper. Some say that very thought is what Marilyn Monroe said about the Kennedy boys and we ssaw what happened to her. Robert Kennedy just happened to be in California? He was the AG he should have been in DC how this whole melodrama has never come to light amazes me. You play with the big dogs and you might get bit as this litttle sleeze found out. Having someone breathing down your neck is worse than admiting to being bisexual. Its not the weapon it used to be for porn whores.
@KiDAciDic: But he’s clearly scum and will be passed around quicker than you can say “HIV test”.
Blackmailing a person is disgusting, seeking easy money like that is pathetic, and he’s obviously a very useless individual(only good for sex and looking pretty).
Honestly despite his body he’s a real turn off. Brains and a body would’ve been way better and he wouldn’t be on his way to candy land searching for a new daddy.
You would think that this asshole after getting $500K would have had the barains to buy a nice gay bar and det up his fifedom. NOOO, had to have more. This is a federal crime so he won’t end up in some shithole state prison, he be among all the corrupt ceos and politicians. If Martha Stewart can do timme this guy will meet some older rich guy and marry him and all will end well for this meathead who probably thinks he’s so misunderstood. It’s highjinx like this that get people killed. He’s ;ucky that guy didn’t have him killed.
@Tackle: The answer is that the vast majority of porn stars do not turn out to be “murderers, robbers, druggies,prostitutes, full of mental issues and [email protected]”. There are “less than perfect’ people in every industry, even the government, and it’s unfair to stereotype porn actors as bad people, esp. considering their work makes so many people “happy”.
So now we know why Aaron Schrock was padding the expense account.
Isn’t Jarec gay4pay? I guess he decided to start using his superpower for evil.
Now why exactly do we adore Straight men in gay porn, this is your outcome most of the time, they tend
to be really screwed up individuals.
remember the good old days when the guy who was being blackmailed could go to prison too for being queer?
Carlos Marvel Avengers
Whaaaaaaaaat!?!? This is so crazy!!!!! D:
Anybody who can afford to hand over that much cash deserves to be blackmailed.
I would bet my left ball that the victim is Tom Cruise.
Wow succefully got five hundred thousand and his greedy ass tried to get another million, it clear he has no brains, the initial 500 thousand should of carried him for years
“So now we know why Aaron Schock was padding the expense account.”
@Tackle: “…This profession/ lifestyle is not going to attract the most level headed, kind, loving,sensible, spiritual, together minded people….”
Unfortunately too many presume otherwise. You are so right! Porn is fine fantasy w/o bringing in the “reality.”
I cannot believe some of the comments on here .If this individual is guilty of blackmail and extortion then it is up to the relevant legal authorities to punish him however that does not include him being raped or passed around like some kind of sexual punchbag .Rape is a vile and demeaning crime and many gay men are subjected to horrific sexual violence simply for being gay and therefore incapable of discernment and choice when it comes to sex.
So he is a performer in porn films if that makes him a lesser person unworthy of consideration what of those who make both his career possible and lucrative i.e the consumer
“…..incapable of discernment and choice when it comes to sex.”
“…..what of those who make both his career possible and lucrative i.e. the consumer.”
It appears who’ve wandered onto the wrong site, Pal. You need to go be with your own kind.
@Cobalt Blue: Well, that includes just about everyone then. I’d say the only one deranged is you dumbbell blue.
@Billy Budd:Not a bad guess. Someone of Toms stature where him being straight identified is worth paying out that kind of $. Find a pic or info on Toms cars and you might find a an Audi R8.
I think what lends the particular quality of revulsion here is that this wasn’t some barroom fight that escalated to a felonious assault or some hot-tempered revenge for an earlier, but still fresh injustice.
Blackmail is a course that requires a sustained, slow-cooked malevolence, plenty of time for a conscience, if one is available, to summon the needed self-disgust to change course, plenty of time for any sense of decency to insist on a halt.
If the evidence in court fully supports the charges, I don’t mind if they throw the book at Wentworth.
This post is about which celebrities own an Audi R8. Here’s a few celebrities who own one:
Robert Downey Jr.
Tyga (Gold Plated)
The Bella Twins
Do we know what color it was?
Jarec Wentworth………Wentworth Miller……..Prison Break………Hmmm….There has to be a movie here somewhere…..
@rickya: also Zac Efron…
@rickya: ah also Jason Stratham who is the star of his favorite movie (see bio in link http://str8upgayporn.com/jarec-wentworth-arrested-extortion/
Who is the Hollywood star that he was blackmailing? Think about it, it had to be someone who’s career would be damaged with the release of photos. Any rich Tom, Dick or Harry wouldn’t be damaged but to a party that had an image to maintain it could mean career suicide. Any ideas? Don’t think TMZ would touch it since Harvey is gay and it wouldn’t be “cool” to out another gay man.
He could think in a cozy barred motif place.
on Sean Cody his video with Curtis is great
here’s a thought … could those “locations” listed in the court documents as places the victim was be movie locations? What films in production are shooting in those locations?
Doesn’t it seem “odd” for a multi-millionaire (billionaire) to actually have a home in f-king Mississippi? I mean, other than filming a movie, why would anybody be in Mississippi (unless he was born there).?
couldn’t it be a professional athlete? just saying 😉
@lykeitiz: I totally get you. I feel the same way. I’m withholding a some judgment, if you read the print outs of the texts between jarek and the victim, it seems as if the person wronged jarek in a way. If it’s a sugar daddy/mama kind of relationship then it’s most likely Jarek was kicked to the curb. If that’s what happens it’s understandable to want to lash back, i just think Jarek was way too greedy.
@stranded: Hell hath no fury like a rent boy scorned?
Anyone know what kind of car David Geffen owns? Probably has a fleet of designer vehicles. This sounds like it could be him.
@Rob Ridings: LOL
@rickya: The indictment filed with the court refers to the victim by the initials “D.B.”
Str8UpGayPorn posted a redacted version of the indictment, obscuring every instance of the text “victim D.B.”
@sfbeast: The indictment filed with the court on March 20, 2015 as “Case 2:15-cr-00131-JFW Document 10” refers to the victim only by the initials “D.B.” You can download a copy of all the case documents from the federal judiciary’s PACER service at http://www.pacer.gov. The case number is 15-MJ-00391.
@skatedude: The indictment filed with the court on March 20, 2015 as “Case 2:15-cr-00131-JFW Document 10” refers to the victim only by the initials “D.B.” You can download a copy of all the case documents from the federal judiciary’s PACER service at http://www.pacer.gov.

I am guessing it is David Beckham. he has lots of money and several Audis it seems as well as motorcycles…
@Billy Budd: or John Travolta
@rickya: I don’t know the color, but the Indictment refers to the victim by the initials D.B.
Could these be the Donald Burns associated with Sean Cody model Ashton”
Correction to article:
Nothing in the court documents indicates that the gun found a car was loaded or that the car belonged to Brank.
The FBI affidavit states that agents searched the car and found “a Colt Magnum 357 revolver along with six rounds of Winchester .38 special ammunition.”
Finding “a … revolver along with six rounds of … ammunition” does not imply that the revolver was loaded. “Along with” does not mean the same as “loaded with.”
The notion that the gun was loaded is one of many examples of incorrect information about the case coming from Str8UpGayPorn and being gobbled up and regurgitated by other porn bloggers who don’t do their own homework.
The gun had nothing to do with the arrest and is completely irrelevant to the charge stated in the Indictment, which doesn’t even mention the gun or any other weapon. The gun is also completely irrelevant to the sentencing.
Another correction to the article.
The article incorrectly states that “official charges will be filed” on the day of the arraignment, March 26.
That’s not how it works. The “official charges” are contained in an Indictment which is filed BEFORE arraignment. The defense gets a copy of the Indictment days BEFORE arraignment. That is why at arraignment, the defense often waives reading of the charges, because the defense has already read the Indictment.
In this case, the Indictment was filed on March 20–six days before the arraignment.
