Star Magazine publishes webcam photos of Clay Aiken, transcript of chat

A month after The National Enquirer reported on a man’s story that he’d had sex with Clay Aiken, another tabloid has published evidence that suggests Clay is searching online for sex with men.

The March 1 Star Magazine reports that “a source claims a lonely Clay Aiken logged onto manhunt.net, a Web site created for men seeking to have sex with other men, from the Wyndham Hotel.” This was on December 5, whereas Clay’s alleged encounter with John Paulus took place Jan. 2.

Star says that “Clay eventually found himself an instant message buddy — according to the source, who is a male school teacher — and apparently sent the man photos of himself — clothed and partially-clothed! — via a Web cam!”

The magazine published those clothed and partially-clothed web cam shots, and Jossip provides a scan of the photos.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
