Rugby Star Opens Up About Being Tricked Into Filming Gay Porn, Which Has Now Leaked Online




An Australian rugby star is speaking out for the first time after x-rated screenshots from a gay porn video he filmed while he was a young prospect starting out in rugby league, leaked online this week.

Penrith Panthers player Kurt Capewell notified police and the NRL integrity unit last year when an individual tried to sell the images of him in a sexual act with another man.

“I’ve lived with this for years,” the 27-year-old told The Daily Telegraph. “I’ve been concerned more for my family that it could come out and the embarrassment it would cause.”

Capewell and his manager approached The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday to share his story after the seven-year-old video from porn websites and online forums went viral in recent days.



The 49-minute video was recorded in 2013 when Capewell was working as a carpenter while starting out his rugby league career in local teams.

Capewell says he was broke at the time and decided to respond to an advertisement to earn money doing a photoshoot for a sports clothing and underwear company on the Gold Coast.

During the filming, he says the focus changed from sportswear images to nude pics and then to an adult film.

“I was young and naïve,” Capewell said. “The organizer used inducements and extra money for being involved in the adult film. I take full responsibility for what happened.”

Capewell, who identifies as straight, said producers led him to a glory hole and was told there was a woman on the other side waiting to service him.

It wasn’t until after he finished filming that he discovered the person on the other side was actually a man. But by then it was too late. The video had already been shot and Capewell admits he signed a consent form without reading the full details.

“It’s something I’ll always regret,” Capewell said.

“I was broke and doing some modeling, then I got talked into doing a porno,” he explained to his teammates in a group text sent this week. “Unknown to me but it turned out they put a bloke on the other side of the wall.”

“I’m terribly embarrassed and ashamed even though it happened when I was so young,” he continued in his group text. “It’s something I’ve been dealing with for the past eight years behind closed doors and I know you will all have my back and stand by me moving forward.”

Capewell told The Daily Telegraph it wasn’t easy sharing the story with his teammates, but says everyone in the locker room was supportive and understood he had been taken advantage of by the producers.

Capewell hopes the incident can serve as a reminder to young people, especially models, to be very cautious when being offered extra money during photo shoots.

“My message to young people is to be really careful when being offered money for photo shoots,” he says. “It’s not the person I am today. I’ve had to learn the hard way. I hope others don’t have to go through what I have endured.”
