Time for some Tea!
The Shade Room released the story about Michael Lucas being sued by the homeowner over him making porn in her AirBnB rental. Well, you know I needed the Tea so I placed a call.
Michael Lucas has issued a response to Ms. Knapic’s complaint that she was duped into renting her home for gay porn films. Y
Lucas Entertainment’s Response To Ms. Knapic’s Filed Complaint
Lucas Entertainment, Inc. would like to issue the following response to Ms. Knapic’s complaint filed against us in California.
Michael Lucas, CEO of Lucas Entertainment, says, “There is no basis whatsoever to this woman’s claims. A search of her online reviews clearly indicates that she is a professional extortionist.”
Screen grabs from these reviews can be found at the end of this statement.
“It’s also an obvious contradiction that she did not keep the security deposit, but now has decided to file a lawsuit,” says Mr. Lucas.
Ms. Knapic was a resident in a guest house on the premises during our entire stay. Our windows faced her windows, we shared the yard and garden, we shared laundry facilities. If there were any activity which would have resulted in the damage she now claims, it would have been evident.
When we first arrived, we inquired if it would be possible to extend our stay, but were told we could not because the house was already rented to others.
Paragraph 17 of the complaint says Ms. Knapic entered the property on August 16, after we had vacated the property, and found a mess.
That is a completely false statement.
On August 27, 11 days after we left, we texted Ms. Knapic to ask if something we had forgotten in the refrigerator had been found. She responded by text on August 31 that they were in Cancun and that their cleaning staff had cleaned the house and threw everything out. Not one syllable about any issue with the horrible condition in which she claims we left the house on August 16.
There was absolutely no claim at that time of any problems at the property.
Cleaning staff went through the house to prepare it for the next rental. Again, absolutely no complaints about the property.
In fact, we have photographs and video that we took on both our arrival and departure dates showing that we left the property in pristine condition. Ms. Knapic’s assistant Dorian even complimented me on how clean the house was.
Obviously, if the house was in the condition as described in her complaint, the response on August 31 would have been something other than “sorry, my cleaning staff threw everything away.”
Ms. Knapic claims in paragraph 20 of her complaint that bodily fluids were found on the walls and ceiling. If true, that must have been one heck of a party. No such party occurred on the days we were there … and she was there the entire time.
Here’s the truth: the house has a unique and unadvertised features:
a fairly well-equipped sex dungeon in the basement, complete with a sex swing, whips, chains and miscellaneous bondage paraphernalia. A video of her sex dungeon is attached. We did not use this room nor any of the equipment in it.
Not having been served with any papers, we cannot ascertain if the complaint as filed is verified. But if Ms. Knapic continues with her claims, she will have to make statements under oath and provide admissible evidence of her claims. It’s also her lawyer’s job to ensure she does not commit perjury.
If the house was trashed, it was trashed by someone other than us. It is possible that she or her renters had a sex party in the dungeon that got out of hand, and she is now looking to a porn company to fund the repairs.
I have also included a few reviews on the house from other sites such as TripAdvisor.
Ms. Knapic alleges that our filming will damage the “reputation and romantic image” of the house. If that was a real concern, she could have framed her complaint innocently and omitted the salacious details. By drafting the complaint as she has, Ms. Knapic has secured the publicity and notoriety she so clearly sought.
It took two months for Ms. Knapic to concoct this false claim and file for damages. Her lawsuit is absolutely without any merit whatsoever.
