John O’Byrne

John O’Byrne at East Coast Talent who claims that he is the owner, has NEVER EVER been the owner and has NEVER EVER been a licensed agent at any time or in any state.

Meet John O’Byrne. O’Byrne currently lives at the Extended Stay America at 755 SW 6th Street, Ft Lauderdale FL 33324. Room #314 which is why he gets referred to as a suite case pimp. His phone numbers are 732-859-2414 and 954-702-9083

O’Byrne tells people that he is the owner of East Coast Talent but he is in FACT not the owner. Let’s get to know what and who he REALLY is. He books girls in both California and Florida and as stated above he is not licensed in either state.

O’Byrne was the “agent” of an underage (15-year-old) girl named Charrida Smalley who used the stage name Bieyanka Moore who shot a boy/girl scene back in 2010 with Reality Kings It was rumored and suspected that O’Byrne helped her get a fake Nevada ID and social security card. O’Bryne’s has tried to make his specialty at representing very young looking girls which screams of his possible pedophilic tendencies. You can read about the whole story below:

O’Byrne lives in a hotel. He currently lives at the Extended Stay America at 755 SW 6th Street, Ft Lauderdale FL 33324. Room #314 which is why he gets referred to as a suite case pimp.  You do not need to look hard on twitter to find the garbage he pulls on girls.

This is just one of MANY posts by girls on twitter and it goes on and on about O’Byrne. There are accusations of stealing, trying to have sex with the girls he represents, slander, assault, and fraud. There are so many I can’t post the hundreds of screencaps on here but you should get the idea by doing a search of O’Byrne on twitter.

It is required BY LAW in both California and Florida for a talent agency to be licensed. On the East Coast Talents website it specifically notes that their license number is TA-155440-1, which is a California talent agency license number (they all begin with the letters ‘TA’).

Interestingly when you go the The California Department of Industrial Relations talent agency database and do a search this is what comes up about East Coast Talent, not only is their license expired it is very telling to who the actual owner of East Coast Talent is.

When you do a talent agency license search at the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation licensing portal this is what comes up below. I did searches on John O’Byrne, East Coast Talent, and Elevation Production LLC. I came up with the same result on all three searches. The link to do the search is https://www.myfloridalicense.com/wl11.asp?mode=0&SID=

John O’Byrne appears to not be liccensed in Florida at all. The fact that the California license has expired is one issue but not so much as it could be just a case of the state hasn’t updated its records yet. The registration had expired at the time when it was listed on May 24, 2016 when I looked it up.

What got my “spider senses” tingling is the address and the owner of Elevation Productions LLC.

According to a simple LLC entity search via the the California Secretary of State website, the link is http://kepler.sos.ca.gov/, since 2009 Elevation Productions LLC has been owned by Darby Castellon. John O’Byrne is not listed anywhere as the owner or principal.

Let’s take a look at the actual address of Elevation Productions LLC. A Google search of that address reveals it is a PostNet Center in Encino owned by Nader Afram

article4

PostNet is a mailbox rental business. It is highly suspicious that a so called “business” such as Elevation Productions LLC would be using a mailbox rental center as a business address.

 

Enter Darby Castellon.  His last known address and phone number were 6913 Hesperia Ave., Reseda, CA 91355 and his home phone number was 818-758-9391

Darby Castellon

Darby Castellon is the former   “personal assistant” of Derek Hay at LA Direct Models. Castellon sued Hay after he was terminated. He sued for wrongful termination. failure to pay overtime, failure to provide a second meal period, failure to properly compensate, and unfair business practices. Gene Ross even wrote about it when it happened. You can read about it here>> 

Castellon was also the owner of the now defunct adult talent agency VanGard Talent which went out of business. I am told by insiders in the industry that they were not surprised when it went out of business because requests to book models went unanswered, phone calls were not returned, models did not get paid or were late getting paid, etc. etc.

Castellon also started OC Modeling with Sandra McCarthy back in 2009 but he seems to have quickly dissappeared from being associated with them after they opened.  Here is a small whisper of his association with OC modeling during the small window of time he was there.  Read More>>

It doesn’t end there with Castellon either, he was the owner of the also now defunct Rancid Productions Inc.  and a marijuana cooperative called Elevations Wellness that operated out in North Hollywood.  The address was 13122 Sherman Way N. Hollywood, CA 91605 . Both are now out of business. It would seem pretty hard for a marijuana cooperative to go out of business but that is EXACTLY what Castellon did to that business also. You will also notice below that Elevation Wellness is using the exact same PostNet address as Elevation Productions Inc. 17328 Ventura Blvd., Encino, CA 91316 but they actually operated out of the building at 13122 Sherman Way N. Hollywood, CA 91605

The California Secretary of State Business Entity Registration for Elevation Wellness and Rancid Productions Inc.

As you can see Rancid Productions Inc. has been dissolved according to the California Secretary of State website, and according to Yelp, they are reporting Elevations Wellness the marijuana cooperative he operated is now out of business also, reported by Yelpers here>>

Lastly, Darby Castellon also is actually former failed adult male talent that went by the stage name of Vincent Vega. He is married to former adult female talent Yesenia Castellon that went by the stage name Yasmine Vega. They currently reside in Reseda, California together.

Now these things pose more than a few legal problems for O’Byrne and Castellon obviously.  It is blatantly illegal for John O’Byrne to be receiving any money or booking for ANY agency services from talent or from studios according to Talent Agencies Act of California Labor Code 1700 , California Code of Regulations Title 8, and in Florida Statute Title 32, Chapter 46, Part 7

In Florida it is a third degree felony per occurence punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 according to Florida Statute §§ 775.081, 775.082, 775.083.) . Meaning, each time O’Byrne took money from a model or studio, or booked a job for a model,  he committed a  felony each and every time he did that and that is the punishment he is looking at per occurence.

In California it is a misdemeanor per occurence for each violation and is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment according to California Labor Code part 6, Chapter 4.5, Article 4, Section 1704. Meaning, each time O’Byrne took money from a model or studio, or booked a job for a model,  he committed a misdemeanor each and every time he did that and that is the punishment he is looking at per occurence.

I have been told by people within O’Byrne’s fake unlicensed agency that he has said that he paid Castellon to use his license which is illegal also to do. If proved to be true both O’Byrne and Castellon are looking at an additional charge in violation of California Labor Code 1700.20. Again this is a misdemeanor in California punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment according to California Labor Code part 6, Chapter 4.5, Article 4, Section 1704.

If you you are a model or studio and you have paid even a single penny to O’Byrne you are entitled to all of it back. The contact information is below of whom to contact to get your money back or if you want to make a complaint against John O’Byrne or Darby Castellon which I highly suggest you do.

As you can see the pattern here with both O’Bryan and Castellon is that they are both multiple time failures in business and in life combined among both of them, just based on this O’Byrne bringing an underage girl to a set should keep any model or studio from ever dealing with them ever, with all the other crap thrown in these two scumbag guys both need to  be shut down, locked up, and throw away the key…
