Squatters break into Hollywood Hills mansion, change locks and create fake lease to rent rooms out to OnlyFans models

LOS ANGELES, CA - A large, luxurious seven-bedroom mansion in the Hollywood Hills was reportedly taken over by squatters who broke in, changed the locks and created a fake lease all before turning it into an OnlyFans studio. 

According to Fox 11, the rooms were rented out to OnlyFan models who stayed in the house and created their content from there. In addition to the illegal room renting, the squatters also threw wild parties. Real estate agents in the area stated that squatters taking over empty homes is a real issue that they're seeing more often. 

In January, real estate agents Emily Randall Smith and her husband arrived at the seven-bedroom mansion to organize and set up an open house, and that is when they found the squatters. Randall Smith said, "We walked up to the property and the lock box was cut off and there was a mailbox someone had ordered and put up. Like that was very weird, that was not here before."

She added, "There was poop and pee everywhere. They cut all the cords to all the security systems. They brought in new Wi-Fi. They were planning to sit there and move there." Her husband had walked over to the side of the house and found someone sleeping inside. That's when the couple reportedly called the police.

Upon arrival, police were unable to get the man out of the house. Randall Smith and her husband waiting for the man to leave and then called the police again. She said, "They knocked on the door and i guess some girl opened it and she ended up being an OnlyFans model and I guess the guy who had broken into the house had started this whole business and was renting these rooms out to the girls."

Police were able to escort the woman, her dog and everyone else's belongings out of the house. Once everyone and everything was out of the house, the couple realized that the conditions of the house were far worse than they could have imagined. The real estate duo believe that the squatters had been at the house for about two weeks before they were discovered and removed.

According to the New York Post, they stated that the models' belongings were scattered throughout the house and that the dog beds and puppy pads on the ground were leaking with urine and feces. Randall Smith said, "It's just a really eerie feeling to feel that somebody went into your property and tried to live there and make it their home."

While no arrests were made the night the squatters were removed, the real estate duo hope that the mastermind behind it all is caught and brought to justice. 

Homes in Hollywood Hills have been targeted more than once over the last year. In August, squatters destroyed a multi-million dollar mansion after filling it up with garbage, feces and graffiti. At the time, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokesperson said, "This kind of call is not unusual for Hollywood, honestly," adding, "Officers did make contact with the property owner, so it's definitely not abandoned, but it's unclear if somebody lives there."

In that incident, three people were detained at the property and cited for trespassing. No actual arrests were made.
