Something all porn stars with an agent must know!

With news that Shy Love is now working with Matrix Models, it’s important that we send out a reminder for all the new girls out there who aren’t aware of her shady dealings. We won’t rehash all the stories, because let’s be real … who has that much free time on her hands?

I’ll just say this … when an agent asks you to sign a HIPPA release, you have to wonder why. Especially when a year later, it’s rumored that her husband isn’t allowed into the United States because he’s wanted for questioning on medical fraud allegations.

A HIPPA release, for those that don’t know, is a document that you sign allowing some person total and complete access to all your medical files. Why does your agent need this? They don’t. They 100% don’t for no reason whatsoever! However, what they can do with it is very serious. Recently an industry insider went to jail for identity fraud, but just a few years ago he was working with two agents in Los Angeles and one producer in Las Vegas to get HIPPA releases so they could do MediCAL fraud.

Long story short, do not ever sign a HIPPA release for your agent or any producer. They don’t need it. Never do it.

I also advise you not to allow payroll for a shoot to be sent in your agent’s name or to your agent’s address.  If a company must pay you via payroll, and we get it’s a common practice, just make sure that check is sent to you, in your name and at your address.

The last thing you need to know is to never sign a General Power of Attorney. No agent every needs this. I don’t care what excuse they give you, they don’t need that kind of power of you. A power of attorney allows you to appoint a person (in this case your agent) to manage your affairs, including all sorts of very serious legal things you might not want to give them control over.

    WTF. I have heard of John being a lackluster agent but not a dishonest one. WTF would he threaten the existence of his talent agency working with the likes of Shy Love? I know he is old but his agency had a value to it if he had sold it before working with Shy, now with her attached to it his agency is worthless.

    As for girls that live in agency housing (John evidently owned an apartment complex and definitely housed his girls in several apartments there) how do they get their checks sent to them while in Chatsworth? Many of these girls live in agency housing for months at a time. Would a post office box be an option in Chatsworth or is there a waiting list for PO Boxes like in San Francisco?

    The second paragraph says “her husband is not allowed in the U.S. because he’s wanted for questioning?” Wouldn’t you want him IN the country to grill him? If a pimp (or ‘agent’ like Spiegler can ‘authorise some2 to speak on AJ Applegate’s behalf he already has total control of that ass.
