Wrestler–porn star Kyle Bradford, who was sued by Tom Cruise for $100 million over allegations in a European publication that Bradford said the two had been lovers, is dropping out of public life, according to MSNBC.com. Bradford (a.k.a. Chad Slater) is divesting himself of the Bradford persona entirely and will be selling off his domain name, KyleBradford.com, along with the domains UsedJockstrap.com and KyleLivecam.com. Bids for these are being taken on eBay. Rights to Bradford’s wrestling videos are also up for sale. On Bradford’s Web site he thanks his supporters and shares his life lessons about loving wisely and the veracity of tabloids. A forthcoming book will chronicle his life in wrestling, porn, and as a press chew toy. Bradford is signing off the public stage with the exhortation, “Wrestle hard guys,” an inspiring sentiment even with its missing comma.
