According to Lucas, he once snubbed Shuter's request for love, which sparked a neverending campaign by the uberflack to exact his revenge! Worst of all, Lucas says, Shuter even used poor supermodel Naomi Campbell for his own nefarious ends. Lucas' full, telling letter is below.

Porno Misses Chance to Besmirch City Hall Fountain

Chris Mohney · 09/29/06 08:40AM

As part of the same film that involved the sex scene in the Marc Jacobs store, the Michael Lucas troupe relocated to City Hall Fountain on Wednesday night. This time, Savanna Samson frolics with Lucas himself in an alarmingly hetero scenario. There are other photos, but they resemble more of a De Beers commercial than a porn movie. Heading off potential objections, Lucas's publicists assures us:
