Exhibit A:

The brusquely discarded boytoy of the now-former head of British Petroleum — who was forced to resign for lying about their affair.

Exbibit B:

Doogie’s boyfriend Tulsa.

Details re A:

“Having bought his young lover at the outset, it seems that Lord Browne continued to believe that he owned him. The perks were stupendous – but Chevalier felt trapped.
His clothes were chosen for him. Even the guest lists for his birthday parties were dictated by Lord Browne and his staff.
“Virtually every aspect of my life was managed by other people,’ he says now.
“I was unable to opt out of many functions and was told I simply had to go. When I started to try to put my foot down in 2005 over which functions I attended and did not attend – to no avail – it was then I felt like a puppet.”
Although Mr Chevalier sought treatment for the condition, nothing seemed to work and eventually Lord Browne ran out of patience at his boyfriend’s refusal to attend the parties because of his medical condition.
The peer ended the relationship last year – virtually cutting Chevalier off without a penny.”

Details Re B:

People Magazine, November 3, 2006: “Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.”

“This step is good for the costumes.”
