An OnlyFans model claims that the owner of a vacation rental kicked her out of the home in May after she posted a photo by the pool wearing a bikini.
Karley Stokes, a model on the pay-per-view adult subscription site OnlyFans, said she and seven friends were booted out of the home they rented in Naples, Florida, through vacation-rental website VRBO.
According to the media agency Jam Press, Stokes and her friends planned to stay in the home for a week at a total cost of $26,000. Stokes told Jam Press she has yet to receive a partial refund from the vacation-rental service.
According to VRBO’s policies, as stated on its website, refunds are “issued based on the property’s cancellation policy” and “take up to five days” to appear in a guest’s account.
VRBO and Stokes, respectively, did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
Stokes and her friends arrived at the home on May 25, and the property manager gave them a tour of the house, she told Jam Press.
The manager left but returned a few hours after “she looked up our Instagram accounts,” Stokes told Jam Press.
“She claimed that she knew we were going to be shooting porn at their location because of our past Instagram posts,” Stokes said.
The manager left and returned once again to collect copies of their IDs and warn them again not to film porn, Stokes told Jam Press.
According to Stokes, their vacation was intended to be a time to relax, meditate, and practice yoga. Stokes said the group had planned to shoot yoga videos and disclosed that to the owner on VRBO when she applied for the rental.
Stokes said that the day after arriving at the rental, the group had a meal in the pool area, which is where she posted an image of herself in a bathing suit. After Stokes posted the image on Instagram, she said that a security guard arrived to tell the group they had to leave the home or they would call the police.
“It was literally crazy how they were acting like we were doing something illegal, when all of the guests were completely clothed in swimsuits and we were having a barbeque in the backyard,” Stokes told Jam Press.
Stokes said that she and her friends booked stays in separate hotels for the rest of the week. When Stokes called the home’s property manager, they told her that the owner would give the group a partial refund, she said.
Once the group’s rental was terminated, Stokes said she received a message from the home’s owner through VRBO.
“This message is to confirm that we are canceling this booking due to a violation of house rules and the misleading information provided in your booking details,” the owner’s message read, according to Jam Press.
However, Stokes told Jam Press that she and her friends had not received any refund at the time of writing.
“How they acted towards my friends and I was shocking, making me feel extremely sad that this kind of discrimination goes on and that some think it’s acceptable,” Stokes told Jam Press.
