Liberace’s ex-lover Scott Thorson, portrayed by Matt Damon in the Emmy- nominated “Behind the Candelabra,” was just given 60 months’ probation for credit card fraud after pleading guilty to burglary and identity theft charges.

The former boy toy found a wallet in February and then proceeded to party down with the contents, leading to his arrest in Reno, Nev., according to Radar Online.

These days he is reportedly hanging out at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a strange place for a gay man, but he’s pals with the owner, Dennis Hof. Hof says his friend is working on another book called “Beyond the Candelabra,” focusing on his post-Liberace years — which have included prison, witness protection and cancer.
