CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Liberace's ex-lover is out of jail after a Lyon County brothel owner paid $15,000 to cover bail on identity theft charges.

Moonlite Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof says he paid to free Scott Thorson from Washoe County jail May 31 after two employees told him about the HBO drama, "Behind the Candelabra," detailing Thorson's relationship with the flamboyant Vegas performer.

Hof says he moved Thorson into his guest house behind the brothel so Thorson can get treatment for colon cancer and drug problems. He also hired an attorney to help Thorson avoid prison.

Hof says the late Liberace's abuse prompted Thorson's life of drugs and crime.

The movie, based on Thorson's autobiography, stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. Hof says work on a second book deal is in the works.
