I don’t know why people still assume that The VIP Connect has a legal license to operate as a talent agency in the state of California. THEY DO NOT.
The VIP Connect is not a legally licensed agency in accordance with the state of California. They are not now, nor have they even been legally able to do business as a talent agency in the state of California.

Anytime anyone tries to question her, she tries to claim that she works in conjunction with LAX MODELS. That is not true. Search LAX MODELS.
But that’s not allowed under the law either. See they operate as two independent agencies – always have. The law is very clear, you may not “share” you license with another agency.
For Shy Love to use the LAX Models license she would have to be an employee, ON PAYROLL WITH TAXES TAKEN OUT OF HER CHECK, of LAX Models. But she’s not. She runs The VIP Connect. LAX Models is now a defunct agency run by her friend and former porn star (now illegal escort agent) Sophia Santi and a producer in Las Vegas named Scott Reedy.
The Law on Talent Agencies
Under California law, a talent agent is not legally able to accept fees/enforce a fee agreement for booking models and performers within California unless the agent is licensed and bonded in California. It does not matter in which state the agency’s office is located; unless the business is licensed and bonded in California, it cannot enforce fee agreements for jobs that took place in California.
Shy Love’s business resides in California, and The VIP Connect operates within the state, booking models and performers for jobs in California.
However, according to the state of California, The VIP Connect is not a licensed talent agency in the state, and Shy is therefore is not able to legally collect fees.
Perhaps that’s something the people on her roster should keep in mind. That also means all of her contracts aren’t valid.
