Treatment of dancers like Stacey Tierney was "particularly awful" at Melbourne strip club.

An ex-boyfriend of a Dreams Gentlemen’s Club dancer, the Melbourne establishment where 29-year-old dancer Stacey Tierney was found dead last December, has claimed extensive drug use is rife within the venue.

Speaking anonymously to, Josh* claimed that he dated a Dreams dancer for 12 months and spent his nights at the bar, partying with the entertainers, security, and management.

He told the publication that illicit drugs, including MDMA and cocaine, were easy to access and were readily passed around in the club.

“Drugs were freely able to be done in the bathrooms, VIP rooms, or the girls would do it upstairs,” Josh said. “There were parties upstairs with girls where there was no security footage and girls would be pressured into doing sex acts in return for drugs.”

Josh* also claimed that the treatment of the girls was “particularly awful” unless they played by the rules.

It is believed 29-year-old Tierney had been dead inside the club for 12 hours before her body was found.

Tierney, who was also a fitness instructor, had been living in Australia for three years.
