Donald Burns sounds like a really nice guy. Sure he's a ((formerly) closeted?) gazillionaire from Palm Beach who paid extremely attractive young male porn stars for sex, but he paid them a lot, even paying "referral fees" when one introduced him to another, and he donated handsomely to support the legalization of gay marriage, reportedly giving Florida Red and Blue a whopping $400,000. According to Gossip Extra (which calls Burns' house a "House of Orgies"), he is well-liked on the island. Everybody has their private fun, and it seems Burns handled his in style until porn actor Teofil Brank (stagename Jarec Wentworth) was charged and convicted of trying to extort $1.5 million and an Audi from him and Burns' name was revealed in the case. It was a case which achieved loads of media attention and may have led Burns to list the gorgeous Palm Beach home where had much of his fun, for $28.75 million.
Replete with fantastic details, the historic oceanfront house was built in 1949 and bought by Burns in 1998 for $3.7 million. The house has six bedrooms and almost 7,000 square feet of living space, as well as a two-story vaulted living room with beamed wooden ceilings, and a dining room that easily seats twenty. It's also only seven houses down from the Kennedy Winter White House.
