According to a report from KIRO 7, the Seattle Police Department has removed two squatters, one of whom was identified as an “OnlyFans influencer” who installed a stripper pole in a $900,000 home while allegedly forging a rental agreement.
“Yes, it was a stressful situation,” said Leka Devatha, the landlord of the Seattle property told the outlet on Sunday. “And I just feel emotionally relieved. Not only did we drive out the squatters, we also made the neighborhood safe again.”
“One of the uninvited… lists herself as an ‘OnlyFans influencer’ on LinkedIn. The couple is now gone. They left behind clothes, a half-eaten cake and…a stripper pole,” the outlet reported.
“I don’t know if she intended to create content here or what she was doing, but it’s just scary to think that they would use the device for that,” the landlord said of what she discovered in the apartment.
“They told me they were doing some plumbing and electrical work, which leads me to believe they are destroying my property room by room,” she told KIRO.
Devatha described it as a “real estate nightmare” when she discovered a man and a woman entered one of her vacant units, changed the locks and took over.
When she confronted them, they refused to leave, she said on Instagram. “I went over to meet these squatters … and saw that they had ripped out the carpets, taken out the door panel and God knows what else,” she said.
The squatters claimed they had signed a lease, and when the landlord initially tried to involve law enforcement, they told her it was a civil matter and she needed to hire a lawyer.
“My question to the Seattle City Council is: How do you condone this behavior and how do you protect your landlords?,” Devatha said.
The names of the individuals involved were not immediately made available to the public.
Fox News Digital contacted police but did not receive the information in time for publication.
