Mike Lewis AKA Michael SCHELINBURGE. My experience as an aspiring Adult Entertainer starting with Mr. Mike Lewis as a Talent Manager or whatever he wants to claim that he is. Mr. Mike Lewis first starts out with a promise of $1200 sign on bonus if you sign on within 24 hours of contacting him this is the luring part, but doesn't explain that you get the bonus until you've served you 6 mo. term. Then when you get there you must sign a 6 mo. agreement stating you will give Mr. Lewis 30% of all earnings whether he get the job for you or not. He does require before you've signed the agreement to do an audition tape with him and his friend another supposed talent manager working for the same company. Also, I met Bella Honey and she may be apart of their scheme but there was no evidence.
After I signed this 6 mo. contractwe went on gosees to different companies Anabolic, WestCoast, Reality Kings, and Black Ice Mr. Lewis did not have a car therefore I had to pay for transportation. My first job was 300 dollars from a scene that I should have been paid well over. This later on will ruin your reputation. All the jobs he got were way under paid. The directors don't care because hey the cheaper the talent the better. I was with him at his house @ 17620 Sherman Way Van Nuys, CA 91406 for 3 days because he claimed that the model house guy was not out of town. I had an issue with what Mr. Mike had told me to tell Black ice which then caused me to find out that he was a bogus manager by the directors and I should leave. This was my plan I was scheduled for another scene w/ Brian Pumper another low paying gig. Then, I confronted Mr. Mike Lewis and told him to go fly a kite that I knew about his bogus. He started to video record me on his telephone and when I got all my stuff to leave he wouldn't unlock the his gate that had a pad lock on it until I said that I had gotten all my things on camera. I did not cooperate and told him I would call the police if he didn't let me out. He let me out and I called Brian Pumper to pick me up.
After I had left Mr. Lewis posted the videos he had taken over the course of the 3 days and edited them to make me look bad. Also, Still to this day he has me in videos claiming he still represents me. Which is farrr from the truth.
This man is a scumbag. LADIES BEWARE!
