We've all heard the stories of Airbnb rentals gone bad. But now Lucas Entertainment, Inc., along with gay porn king Michael Lucas and his crew, are being sued for allegedly "leaving enemas, sex toys and bodily fluids all over the property" after he filmed an adult movie at the home. The owner of Acacia Mansion, a 1929 Spanish revival property that is located in Ojai, Calif., is a woman named Kristina Knapic. 

According to The New York Daily News, Knapic claims she rented the property to Lucas under false pretenses and the crew stayed at the "mansion" for five days, leaving it in disrepair. She's now made a claim of $30,000 with Airbnb.

Michael Lucas did post photos of himself and others on Instagram with the tag #LucasMen while in California.

Lucas Entertainment, Inc. issued the following response: 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... It’s also an obvious contradiction that she did not keep the security deposit, but now has decided to file a lawsuit.”

The statement continued:

"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.”
