A popular male content creator says he was brutally attacked Tuesday by the ex-boyfriend of a recent scene partner.

The Flesh Mechanic posted on X late Tuesday evening that a male performer—identified in pictures as Uncut James—staked out his location and struck him twice with his truck as he attempted to leave on his motorcycle.

According to the post, James then exited the truck wearing rubber gloves. He attempted to put on a ski mask before striking The Flesh Mechanic with a golf club. At that time, The Flesh Mechanic wrote, “I defended my life.”

And it appears he defended it well.

A video from the scene shows a bloodied James flat on his back with the The Flesh Mechanic sitting on top of him, restraining his arms while waiting for the police to arrive. A massive knot had swollen above his left eye, and a laceration was visible beneath it. Blood also dotted James’ lips and teeth.

The Flesh Mechanic said in his post that James told him he was upset he had shot with his ex-girlfriend, who is known to be performer Ivy Labelle. He also posted a video recorded by onlookers of James trying to explain his method of attack.

“You don’t have respect for me that I fucking had a problem with you and came to you?” James said.

“Not at all,” The Flesh Mechanic replied. “With a golf club? You think I’m going to have respect for you for coming at me with a golf club?”

James shrugged.

“So what?” he said. “You’re wearing a helmet.”

The Flesh Mechanic posted that James “left in an ambulance and will be going to jail.”  He declined to comment further when reached by PornCrush via DM Wednesday afternoon.

Hussie Models owner Riley Reynolds, who represented James, says he dropped him from the agency and canceled all of his bookings immediately after hearing the news early Wednesday morning.

James entered porn in 2022 and has worked with many of the industry’s top stars for studios such as Adult Time, Brazzers, and Evil Angel. Some of James’ former scene partners expressed shock and outrage upon learning of the attack.

“What’s unfolded tonight has made me so incredibly sad and sick to my stomach,” Lilly Bell posted on X. “You think you may know someone’s character in this industry, but you don’t.”

Update: Thursday, April 4, 6:45 p.m. PT - A spokesman with the Los Angeles Police Department told PornCrush that James has been arrested and charged with attempted murder. His bond is set at $1 million. He remains in custody at the LAPD Metro Detention Center in Downtown LA.
