Shy Love’s talent agency website The VIP Connect has been offline for more than a month or two. Looks like she’s out of business.
Euro sex workers say ‘Shy Love / The VIP Connect TRAFFICKED us to the U.S., held our money to keep us in line’
As the U.S. government crackdown on sex trafficking reaches fever pitch, several Eastern European sex workers tell MikeSouth.com that Shy Love, the expatriate American porn star, tax cheat, and owner of unlicensed “talent agency” The VIP Connect, trafficked them into the United States under the pretense of getting them adult film work.

Several young women from Hungary and the Czech Republic have now come forward to say that Shy Love, 39, a.k.a. Sheelagh Blumberg / Sheelagh Liberboim, had them brought to the United States with the promise of up to $20,000 in legit adult movie shoots, only to have them deposited in a “fifth wheel” trailer near the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley to smoke HEETS tobacco as they wait desperately for the phone to ring with details of $400 – 600 illegal escort gigs.
When Shy Love opened unlicensed talent agency The VIP Connect in 2014, many in the world of adult suspected it was a front for prostitution.
An extraordinary cache of documents provided to this site in recent days details an apparent international human trafficking scheme, and EXCLUSIVE VIDEO obtained by MikeSouth.com shows young women who appeared on The VIP Connect website, living inside the trailer.
Interestingly, the location where the trailer is parked lies just three houses down from the alleged “trap house” belonging to another adult film performer turned notorious pimptress, Trinity St. Clair.
Sordid tales of St Clair’s house can be found here.
UPDATE: These photos were taken of the trailer at the same San Fernando Valley location, Saturday morning, April 7:
According to the young porn hopefuls, Shy Love arranges for European models to be brought to the U.S., allegedly with the cooperation of the Brill Babes, erotic model agency of Budapest, Hungary.
Shortly after their U.S. arrival they are transported across state lines to Nevada or Arizona, where arrangements are made for them to receive state ID cards, and then driven back to Los Angeles County in California. (One model says Shy Love accompanied a batch of models on such a trip.)
However, the women do not have work visas, and cannot work legally in the U.S.
Likewise, the women are not informed that Shy Love and her agency are so despised and distrusted in the world of adult films, that what little work she is able to get them is for low end “ratchet” companies and backstreet Clips4Sale stores.
With few options, the women wait for calls from “Maria”, who provides hem with details of prostitution jobs they need to do. (It’s not much of a Solemn Secret in porn valley that “Maria” is actually a retired adult performer who is best friends with Shy Love.)
The European women don’t know anyone in the Los Angeles area, are isolated from the world in a trailer, have no work papers, and are informed that The VIP Connect is holding all their money for them until just before they depart for Europe, they have little choice but to take these dangerous, low-paying appointments.
Meanwhile, Shy Love boasts that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cannot get her because moved to Holland and travels to the U.S. under an Israeli passport, and that they will never be able to find the trailer.
She is spectacularly mistaken.
More on this story to come. . .
Prior to opening The VIP Connect, Shy Love was involved with the talent agency ATMLA and after running it into the ground, she left and started her own.
Luckily with Shy Love gone they were able to recover and become one of the top agencies in the adult industry.
I found this great story on Complaints Board about just how shitty Shy Love really is.
I recently signed a 2-year contract with Adult Talent Manager-LA not knowing i was signing my career away. They Claim to be the best Agency in the industry, i found out very different. I am young adult actress new to the business and i was recruited by a model of ATMLA, she told me that Shy Love was the best agent in the business and she truly cares about her girls which i later find out was a very false statement. The 2-year contract i signed was that i pay her 20% of my earnings, 15% to her and the other 5% to the driver to take you to and from set. The 15% is a normal rate to pay your agent to find you work and put your name out there, i was brand new to the business and i know i had great potential especially signing with the best agent in the industry. The problem is that they have SO many girls on there Rooster that are promised that they are working full-time to get them scenes, make sure you are going to a safe set and location.i would have directors calling me trying to get a hold of the agency to book me because know one in the office would answer. 85% of the time the driver was late to pick me up which made me late for my call time, i would be told that the shoot was booked as same day pay and then have the director tell me that shy called him and said she needed to pick up my check… THAT IS NOT RIGHT FOR ANY AGENT TO DO!!! as for all the other shoots that were considered payroll i still have yet to see the money she has deposited 2, 000 into my account and that’s it and i have over 12 shoots in payroll and have not seen ANY of it…and they cant seem to give me an answer to where my money is. All this agency cares about is taking your money not your career, do not sign with this agency if you want to make a name for yourself because you will be scared right out of the business! im now stuck in this awful 2 year contract, don’t make the same mistake!!!
Think that’s bad? Look at one of the comments ….
I signed up with the agency and that’s when I found out its a escorting service. I tried to get out of the contract that’s when I was told the only way I can get out of it is if I paid the agency 8, 000 dollars.
For quite some time Shy Love has been telling anyone who will listen how Selena Rose, now Selena Santana is one of her best girls and how they are great friends.
Apparently Selena didn’t feel the same. She has now left shy Love and her rogue agency The VIP Connect and has signed with LA Direct Models.
It sucks that someone you claim is your good friend doesn’t even want to do business with you.
Shy Love doesn’t have a lot of money, but she likes to pretend that she does.
At the AVN Awards show this year in Las Vegas she co-hosted a big, lavish party with Derek Hay from LA Direct Models, who also owns The Lee Network.
The problem is, Shy Love couldn’t afford to financially contribute to the party, so instead she made Derek Hay feel sorry for her. He let her put her name on the party as if she was actually a real co-host.
Nice of him, right?
What does Shy Love do in return? Shows up to the party with A List Dave, the owner of The Lee Network’s competition. A List Dave have been known to do some shady shit over the years to fuck with The Lee Network.
Guess it’s true what they say, with friends like Shy Love who the fuck needs enemies?
That bitch has no problem fucking over anyone at any time, while lying to your face, pretending to be your friend.
You may notice in that picture is also Emily Mena who recently left LA Direct Models under auspicious circumstances. So why would Shy Love bring this girl to the party knowing it is co-hosted by LA Direct Models and Emily has been out there talking all kinds of shit about LA Direct?
Who does that?
Shy Love of course.
Then again can you really expect anything less from the person who had been feeding Mike South false information for years and it ended up getting him sued. As a result Mike South lost ownership of his website. Did Shy Love come to his defense knowing she was the one who fed him the lies that got him sued in the first place?
Shy Love is performing on camera but she is not tested. That’s right, she has no valid STD test despite it being a requirement in the adult industry.
In July of 2016 Shy Love contacted Talent Testing and had them hide her previous test results.
She has had no new tests results since that time.
Rumor is, her mysterious illness that she speaks about all the time isn’t kidney problems but is in fact Hepatitis C!
But that doesn’t mean Shy Love has stopped having sex on camera.
In fact she did a girl/girl scene in August for Cams.com.
In November around the 15th she shot for Girlfriend Films with Alexis Fawx UNTESTED.
On November 12th she did a girl/girl scene with Tylo Duran on cams.com.
She also recently shot with Nikki Phoenix, Lynn Vega and Riley Reyes.
But hey, when the director is your friend, who needs to prove they are tested, right?
DO NOT HAVE SEX WITH ANYONE UNLESS YOU SEE THEIR FUCKING TEST!
I’ll let Shy Love herself tell you what kind of mother she really is.
I mean sure there are rumors abound about her neglectful abusive behavior towards her kids. But let’s let Shy Love in her own words show you what kind of mother she is.
This is not a photoshopped image. It’s Shy Love’s own twitter timeline.
If you think Shy Love is your friend, just ask Mike South how that worked out for him.
Shy Love loves to tell people gossip, even if that information isn’t true. For years she has been feeding people lies about her “enemies” and now it has gotten someone sued.
Porn blogger Mike South quoted Shy Love’s lies on his website. He repeated something Shy Love told him as if it were a fact.
Now he’s getting sued because it turns out SHY LOVE LIED.
Shy Love made up a bullshit story and Mike South was stupid enough to believe it and post about it on his porn blog.
This is what you get when you deal with Shy Love. She will stop at nothing to try and screw people she doesn’t like, even if that gets innocent people in trouble.
Now because he trusted Shy Love, Mike South will have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to defend himself against LIES that Shy Love told him.
And where is Shy Love in all of this?
Sure as fuck not paying his legal bill. She left him high and dry.
Now he has to pay the price because he trusted Shy Love.
Don’t make that same mistake.
The thing Mike South needs to learn, that he can’t keep posting shit that isn’t true. It doesn’t matter who tells him the lies, he’s the one who is responsible for what he posts on his own site.
If you post things on your blog that are materially untrue about others and unfairly tarnishes their reputation, you can be sued for libel.
