*They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Keep that in mind as you read this story. A local news station in San Diego interviewed Aaron Brink, the father of Anderson Aldrich and the suspect in the Colorado Springs LGBTQ+ nightclub shooting.
That shooting claimed the lives of Kelly Loving, Daniel Aston, Derrick Rump, Ashley Paugh and Raymond Green Vance.
In a bizarre interview with CBS 8 News, Aaron Brink reveals his relationship with his son, also that he was a former pornstar, and he feels like his son was disgraced by his career choice.
Brink also says his ex-wife called him from Colorado in 2016 to tell him their son, Nicholas Brink, had changed his name to Anderson Aldrich, and had killed himself. “His mother told me he changed his name because I was in Intervention and I had been a porno actor,” said Brink.

For six years he thought his son was dead until his son called him last year, arguing with him over the phone. Brink said he’s a Mormon. His first reaction was to question why his son was at a gay bar. When his son’s lawyers called him to inform him about the shooting. “You know Mormons don’t do gay. We don’t do gay. There’s no gays in the Mormon church. We don’t do gay,” Brink said.
As he learned more details of the deadly shooting, he said he was shocked.
“There’s no excuse for going and killing people. If you’re killing people, there’s something wrong. It’s not the answer.”
Prayers to all the victims and their loved ones. 🙏🏾🕊️ Neighbors, what are your thoughts?
Wait. There’s more …
In a court filing late Tuesday, lawyers for Aldrich, who in 2016 changed his name from Nicholas Franklin Brink to escape his father’s sordid past, said Aldrich is non-binary, saying “they use they/them pronouns.”
However, booking records list Aldrich’s gender as male. Additionally, in text messages from the day of the shooting, which were shown to The Daily Beast by a source close to Aldrich, Aldrich’s mother referred to her son as he and him.
Meanwhile … here’s what folks on social media have to say:
