I only worry for Daley because out here in West Hollywood, DLB has earned a reputation for preying on young, soft newbies — and leaving them shellshocked, bitter, and broken. These stories are not made up, it’s not hard to run into the “victims” of the so-called Velvet Mafia. DLB hasn’t racked up as many as Bryan Singer, but they’re out there.
However, unlike these boys Daley is famous in his own right — so hopefully he’s a little more savvy than your average 19-year-old. If anything, I see DLB getting a taste of his own medicine. Daley doesn’t need DLB’s influence or his money — that’s going to make this situation different, and hopefully better for them both.
