LAX Meth Case: British Gay Porn Star “Bruno Knight” Pleads Guilty:

A British gay porn star busted at Los Angeles International Airport after he was found attempting to smuggle a half-pound of crystal meth in his body pleaded guilty on Friday to a federal drug possession charge.

Philip Gizzie — who uses the stage name Bruno Knight — was arrested June 16 after he told LAX customs officers that he had “inserted three large objects containing methamphetamine” into his body cavity, according to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.

Gizzie, 31, pleaded guilty today to a federal count of possession with intent to distribute meth, which carries a 20-year maximum sentence, prosecutors said.

An attorney for Gizzie could not be reached for comment.

According to the affidavit, Gizzie was scheduled to depart LAX on a flight to London after what he described as a weekend of partying with friends in North Hollywood.

Acting on an anonymous tip to the Drug Enforcement Administration, customs officials located Gizzie — who had no checked luggage — and began questioning him, according to court documents.

Gizzie, appearing “nervous and sweating profusely,” told officers that he had taken meth, marijuana, cocaine and the narcotic sedative known as GHB over the weekend but was not high at the moment, the affidavit said.

During a secondary inspection, Gizzie told officers that he was carrying three packets of meth in his body.

“Gizzie expelled two of these objects at LAX and passed the third object at Centinela Hospital,” the affidavit states, describing the weight of the drugs as 226 grams.

Describing himself as an HIV-positive porn actor and male escort, Gizzie said he had left London three days earlier with his partner, a Virgin Atlantic flight attendant.

Gizzie has worked for several gay porn studios.

In a scene from the 2011 porno film “Security Control,” Gizzie plays an airport security guard who searches another porn actor’s body for drugs.

Gizzie is being held in federal custody pending sentencing on Nov. 24 before U.S. District Judge Manuel Real.
