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.
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.
Shy Love tweeted a message today that said she was looking for hot girls under 25.
I’m here to warn you, this is the last person you should contact. That is, if you want to make any money.
Shy Love can’t be trusted and the girls who work for her end up running away as fast as they can. Some have even quit porn just to get away from her.
If you don’t do as she says, she starts publicly berating you.
It’s not that a girl doesn’t show up on a job because she’s a flake. She doesn’t show up because the girl doesn’t want to work with Shy Love anymore and Shy Love won’t take the fucking hint.
And you know what she does next to girls who cross her?
She takes your real name and publishes it online.
Next she takes pictures and video clips you have done in porn and sends them to your family.
Don’t want you grandma seeing you suck a big black cock this Christmas? Then avoid Shy Love at all costs!
Shy Love owns The VIP Connect.
Sophia Santi owns LAX Models
The VIP Connect is not licensed in California.
LAX Models was, however they are not anymore. LAX Models was licensed under the name Model Democracy, LLC. That company is now dissolved.
Model Democracy, LLC. was owned by Scott Reedy, a douchebag producer from Las Vegas. He dissolved that company.
However that being said, Sophia Santi owned the license. It was in her name.
The VIP Connect, LAX Models and Metro Talent Management all were using the same license #. The only problem, they were independently owned and operated and operated agencies.
The law prohibits agencies that are independently owned and operated to share the same license.
Does Shy Love care? Nope.
She now claims that LAX Models and The VIP Connect are one in the same.
The problem with that is, neither are licensed, so that is irrelevant.
Lax Models is not legally licensed to do business in the state of California.
The VIP Connect is not legally licensed to do business in the state of California.
Anonymous YouTuber posts video about Shy Love, exposing some of her not so secrets.
Poor Aubrey Gold. When she signed her contract with THE VIP CONNECT she had no idea she was getting involved with a scammer.
As you see in the video below, Shy Love tricked Aubrey Gold into a 4 year contract.
After a few months of not getting any work Aubrey Gold wanted out of her contract. What did Shy Love say?
Fuck you, pay me $5,000 and I’ll think about it.
So Aubrey Gold had to quit porn because Shy Love is a bitch. She wouldn’t book the girl any work, but she also wouldn’t release her from her contract?
What kind of evil bitch does that?
Now for the last few months Aubrey Gold has been tweeting about how her agent did her wrong. Here is one such tweet from the other day.
The VIP Connect hasn’t booked Aubrey Gold any work in months. So why is she still under contract? I thought if you couldn’t book a performer work in 90 days they had to let you out of your contract?
Oh that’s right, they do!
Come to think of it, Aubrey Gold’s contract was signed by The VIP Connect and they don’t have a license to do business as an agency in the state of California so how the fuck is that contract valid in the first place?
Oh that’s right, it’s not.
So really Aubrey Gold’s contract isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. She could come back if she wanted to but then when she tried to leave before Shy Love tried to blacklist her and harassed her relentlessly when Aubrey Gold tried to book her own work.
Who the fuck deserves that shit?
The VIP Connect needs to be closed and Shy Love needs to face charges what the shit she pulls.
This isn’t the first girl who has ran away rather than deal with Shy Love. When will the law step in and deal with this?
Shy Love has violated so many labor codes in the state of California I couldn’t even begin to count.
Let’s hope that someone will reach out to Aubrey Gold and help her with a lawyer not to sue her because let’s be real Shy Love has no fucking money, but instead to file several complaints against Shy Love with the state of California and the labor board.
With Shy Love out of town, and Mark Mojo skipping out (since Shy Love didn’t pay him) who is currently running The VIP Connect? Mike Mancini!
This is Mike Mancini.
Mike Mancini is currently dating porn star Phoenix Marie who is well known for her unusual sexual desires. In other words, she likes to put on a strap on and fuck her man in the ass.
She also likes to make her man suck her big, plastic dick. And she previously dated tranny fucker Christian X. That is perhaps where she got her taste for tranny like activities.
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.
Go to https://www.dir.ca.gov/databases/dlselr/talag.html and search for yourself.
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.
Shy Love loves to brag about how great things are going. But are they really? In reality she is losing talent and employees left and right. Most recently, Darcie Dolce left The VIP Connect, running as fast as she can to LA Direct.
Damn, she can’t keep employees or her talent.
Below is the article announcing Darcie Dolce signing exclusively with LA Direct Models.
