A furious Airbnb owner of a $20 million Hamptons mansion is planning to sue a hedge funder after he threw a giant party complete with champagne guns and thousands of revelers, Page Six reports.
The owner claims Brett Barna, a portfolio manager at Louis Bacon’s Moore Capital Management, said he was holding a fundraiser for an animal charity with around 50 guests, according to Page Six's Emily Smith.
Instead, thousands of guests showed up for an event called the "Sprayathon" that was documented on social media.
"The only animals there were the people, a thousand of them. They drowned themselves in Champagne ... they broke into the house, trashed the furniture, art was stolen, we found used condoms," the owner told Smith. "So many people were there that the concrete around the pool crumbled and fell into the water. It was like 'Jersey Shore' meets a frat party."
The owner, known only as "Tommy" on his Airbnb profile, is now suing Barna for $1 million for alleged damages to the property, as well as Barna allegedly refusing to pay for the $27,000 Airbnb rental.
A source told Page Six that that the party did raise $100,000 for Last Chance Animal Rescue, as well as hired cleaners and left the house in "good condition."
Airbnb spokesperson Nick Shapiro told Business Insider, "Negative experiences are extremely rare as more than 80 million guest arrivals have had safe and positive experiences on Airbnb. We have zero tolerance for this kind of behavior and have removed this guest from our platform. We are working to support the host under our $1 million host guarantee."
Both Moore and Barna did not respond to Page Six's request for comment.
Below are some Instagram photos from the party.
