NYC Hot Spot ‘Space Ibiza’ Held Fundrasier For Rentboy CEO
Hell’s Kitchen nightclub Space Ibiza is owned by identical twins Daniel and Derek Kock. They are happily not relations to the bigoted brothers David and Charles Kock, pronouncing their surname “cook.” They are also pronouncing the Rentboy raid as bat-shittery. Last Friday, they held a fundraiser for Rentboy CEO Jeffrey Hurant.
From Page Six:
Hell’s Kitchen nightclub Space Ibiza is having an unusual fundraiser Friday night — for Jeffrey Hurant, the CEO of rentboy.com, who was arrested last week when his site’s Union Square headquarters was raided.Rentboy allegedly offered 10,500 male “escorts” to 2,500 paid subscribers, according to feds, who called it the “largest online male escort service.”
Hurant, who denies the charges, was busted with six others.
Space Ibiza said Friday’s proceeds will go to Hurant’s defense fund.
Hosts include Brandon Voss, Michael “Formika” Jones and others.
Gay activists have blasted the arrests as “harassment” against the gay community.
Hurant’s facing up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
