Liberace's former lover, Scott Thorson  was jailed earlier this month after he tested positive for meth use — a violation of his probation — and a new report claims the 54-year-old was living in a hotel surrounded by drug addicts just prior to his arrest.

After being sentenced to 60-months of probation for burglary and identity theft charges, Thorson was forced to move from the the world-famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel in Carson City, Nev. to somewhere inside Reno's city limits.

"That was the beginning of the end," the ranch's owner, Dennis Hof told the National Enquirer.

"Part of the terms of my probation was to enroll in drug court, and when I went before Judge Breen in early August, he told me he wanted me to live within Reno's city limits. So I went from living in the lap of luxury at the Bunny Ranch surrounded by beautiful women and medical personnel…to a downtown Reno-area extended-stay hotel," Thornson told the tabloid.

"Where there are drug addicts roaming the streets at all hours of the night."

According to Hof, prior to his arrest Thorson had been on a positive path, focused on a sequel to his book Behind the Candelabra — which was made into an HBO movie starring Matt Damon and Michael Douglas.

"Scott was hoping to attend the Emmy Awards later this month, but now it doesn't look like that is going to happen," he said.

"Instead, he's going to have to watch them from his jail cell."
