Justin Gaston's Agent Lands Prison Gig

10/30/2008 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin GastonMiley Cyrus' boyfriend, Justin Gaston, will soon be able to land any underwear modeling gig he wants ... on cellblock H.

On Tuesday, a Kentucky appeals court upheld Gaston's Wilhelmina Models agent Allen Osborne's 2006 conviction for conspiracy to commit mail fraud. Osborne will spend 15 months in jail and have to pay back over $187K.

Back in 2000, Osborne and his client, Michael Wilson, a trade show director for Fruit of the Loom, set up a scam to bill the underwear company fraudulently through Osborne's company, Talent Services, and to use the money to pay off Wilson's son's drug debts. Osborne used the proceeds from the fake bills to pay Wilson and would, at times, FedEx the money to him. When you absolutely, positively have to pay the kickback overnight!

In addition, Osborne provided models to "entertain" Wilson after hours and used Wilson's portion of the cash to pay the escorts. Wilson got doubly screwed!

In 2006, Osborne and Wilson, along with one of the models, were indicted for mail fraud conspiracy. While Wilson pled guilty, Osborne and the model went to trial and were found guilty.

TMZ contacted Osborne's lawyer but he had no statement.

Well, I guess it kind of has to do with Justin, but not really. Was Justin one of the models sent over to entertain the perv? Now THAT would be a better story.

This is no big surprise. Osborne who has worked for Vision Models in LA more recently was fired from several agencies along the way for his side activities. He hasn't worked fro Wilhelmina in several years. Justin Gaston would have been twelve when all this happened.

The Men's business is overloaded with like minded agents who think nothing of pimping out their boys to secure jobs.
The industry could use a cleaning up to be sure. Some Major agencies overlook the practice because it does bring in more revenue in a tough business. Ironically three of the worst offenders all worked with Allen at a New York Agency which credits itself with creating the first Male SuperModel.

Allen Osborne is one of the top agents in the business. This is crazy.
