Robert Marucci, the 18-year-old senior at Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Florida suspended over a gay porn career, returned to class Wednesday.

Marucci told CNN affiliate WKMG that he started his work in porn to help his mother make ends meet.

Marucci became the target of bullies after students discovered x-rated photos online, his mother, Melyssa Lieb said.

“He was bullied. He was threatened,” she told the network.

“I think that it is Dr. Soliven's moral and her personal beliefs and I don't think that this is anybody's business except for my son's,” Lieb said, a reference to Principal Stephanie Soliven. “The children at the school found [the images], and she didn't do anything to stop it.”

Marucci “was expelled due to his explicit lifestyle career,” Lieb claimed

School officials, however, said Marucci was suspended over “possible threats” he made.

Marucci, who appeared on Sean Cody under the name Noel, served four days of a ten day suspension that threatened his graduation in May.

“I feel like I have been treated unfairly and this is unjust,” Marucci said. “This is completely legal. I didn't break any laws, and this took place out of the school.”

On Friday, dozens of students staged a walkout at the school in support of Marucci.
