Montgomery Maxton’s ex-boyfriend, Brian H., allegedly posted an intimidating video on Instagram last night following a “usual evening bender” as Maxton has been known to say.
The video purports to show H. lip-syncing to the Nikki Minaj song “Hard White.” At the end of the video H. delivers an angry “bitch” in a deep voice with a bone-chilling gaze in his eyes.
Maxton responded by copying the video and posting it to his Twitter account around 1am saying “LOL good luck getting through my guards.”
He also copied the video to his Instagram Stories with a geotag of the city dump.
Maxton’s publicist deleted the tweet and the Insta Story around 4am. Maxton employs a bodyguard for undisclosed reasons.
The two dated at some point this year after having met on Tinder. He was featured in Maxton’s popular Facebook Tinder Dating Series.
The original video remains on Instagram.
Montgomery Maxton gave an inpromptu poetry reading Wednesday night in Brooklyn, breaking a hiatus that lasted 12 years.
The 37 year-old-poet, whose third poetry book will be released in less than a month, read to a captivated audience of about 40 at a wine bar in the hip Williamsburg neighborhood, where Mr. Maxton frequently haunts.
Maxton has not given a public reading since 2006 where he read to a crowd of about 150 in Cincinnati, his hometown.
Reading from memory but with his iPhone in hand, Maxton powerfully and with animation delivered ten short poems in 15 minutes. He ended with “Philadelphia” which is where he’s scheduled to give a reading at the library of next week.
Following the reading he received a roaring applause, with several snapping selfies with him as he made his was out of the bar to his chauffeur-driven SUV.
He then dined in TriBeCa with a tech company president.
Montgomery Maxton announced via his publicist today that he has agreed to participate in a poetry reading in April 2018 in Philadelphia.
The event, “Is There Queer Poetry?” will also include three other poets. He will also answer questions from the audience.
Maxton has not given a public poetry reading since 2006, stating social anxiety as a reason. In 2016 Maxton gave private, “less than 5 people” readings at private homes and hotel rooms in Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio, New York, and California.
The New York City-based poet and photographer is a former resident of Philadelphia, having lived there from 2010 until 2014 when he left everything and moved to New York City following years of an alleged abusive relationship and a rumored heartbreaking love affair.
His most recent poetry collection, Champagne (2016, Moon Ice Press), highly reflects that time period.
Maxton briefly returned to Philadelphia last fall and tweeted that it was part of a healing process for him, and that despite his love for the city, it still hurt to be there.
The event, scheduled for April 24th at the Independence Library, will be hosted by Jim Cory, one of America’s most foremost poets.
Maxton lives in Brooklyn and manages a tech company on Wall Street. In late 2018 he will release his debut graphic novel, “The Manhattan Man."

Montgomery Maxton’s long-rumored bodyguard was all but confirmed tonight after intervening during an incident in Brooklyn that left an entire restaurant staff dumbfounded following a run-in with the bartender.
After arriving at a favorite downtown Brooklyn restaurant with a friend, the bartender reportedly refused to seat Maxton and his guest, which set Maxton off.
The host intervened and sat Maxton on the back patio, where his bodyguard, whose name is Romeo, soon arrived and stood by his side as Maxton’s private driver idled outside.
“This huge gorgeous SUV pulled up and next thing you know,” a patron said via Twitter direct message after tweeting about the incident, “two men came swarming inside and went right to the back private area where dude was. A huge muscle man and another man, both that looked like you didn’t want to fuck with them.”
“I don’t know who this dude is but he isn’t playing” the patron said when asked about Montgomery Maxton.
Maxton reportedly tipped his waitress well but not before telling her that the bartender was a "fucking jerk" and should "fired."
It is not known why the bartender, acting as a host despite a host being on duty, refused to seat Maxton.
Maxton claims the bartender was homophobic.
A call to the restaurant resulted in a voicemail.
