Nick Manning Faces Eviction

(ENCINO, CA) -- Nick Manning's new lingerie store, LA Exotique is facing eviction from the landlord, despite being paid in full on rent, only three weeks after opening the doors. The store in Encino, at the cross street of Ventura and Louise is owned by Nick Manning and adult stars Michelle McLaren, Rachel Roxxx, Sarah Jesse, Mikey Butders, and Justin Syder. Dean Sussman, Manning's longtime adult distribution partner is also an owner and the Managing Director of LA Exotique.

The move to evict the store comes as a shock after lengthy cooperation and legal compliance adhered to in order to move in. Over $90,000 was paid to the landlord, Ventura-Louise LLC, in advance of the move. Only after the doors opened did the hostility begin.

"Dean Sussman has put in a remarkable effort to open LA Exotique," explains Nick Manning. "He carefully met with the zoning executives and it was determined that we were a lingerie store and not even classified as an adult bookstore. We have diligently adhered to the guidelines provided to us by the zoning board."

Among the troubles, Dean Sussman was informed by the delay in having their sign for the store delivered came from Ventura-Louise LLC. The store has been inundated with threatening phone calls from attorneys and individuals impersonating police and city councilmen.

Manning's lease allows him the opportunity to sublease the unused portion of LA Exotique. Adding insult to injury, Ventura-Louise LLC has rejected every potential tenant Nick Manning has submitted.

While business has been excellent, the harassment is wearing on Manning's nerves. "It's obvious that they are just making life difficult because I'm an adult film star. I vow to fight this censorship, keep my store open, and adhere to the business plan that we shared with everyone involved prior to opening our store."

On Thursday, October 25th, Manning will appear on the Howard Stern Show on Sirius Radio to discuss the situation and support LA Exotique.
