Beverly Hills is “investigating” the popular influencer mansion Clubhouse.

Clubhouse, which was launched after cofounder Daisy Keech (6.1 million followers) left another popular creator group, The Hype House, earlier this year, is an influencer group and physical house in Beverly Hills. It’s among several popular influencer content “collab” houses in the Los Angeles area, like The Hype House and the Sway House.

Clubhouse rotates members as a part of its business model, and recently Keech and others left the group, and new members like influencers Katie Sigmond (649,000 followers) and Teala Dunn (3.3 million followers) joined.

“The city is aware of the violations and working to achieve permanent compliance with the owners of the property,” Beverly Hills spokesperson Keith Sterling told Business Insider on Thursday.

The investigation was first reported in the Beverly Hills Courier on August 21. One neighbor told the Courier that the house recently held a large gathering and estimated over 100 people attended.

“They blocked both sides of the streets with cars, they were blocking some of my neighbor’s driveways,” she told the Courier. “And when you wake up in the morning, you’ve got condom wrappers, you’ve got tequila bottles, you’ve got random socks and random dish towels.”

A spokesperson for Clubhouse said Thursday that the group was working with the city to resolve the situation, and said that they weren’t “aware of any on-going investigations.”

Many influencer groups like Team 10, Sway, and The Hype House have gotten attention recently for hosting large parties and violating LA’s health guidelines. The New York Times reported that the mayor of LA turned off TikTok star Bryce Hall’s power after a recent Sway party.

Social-distancing measures like wearing masks and staying six feet apart are still recommended in most states in the US including CA, and health officials have required that CA residents wear masks in public.

In June, Business Insider reported on the launch of Clubhouse’s new “travel house” called Clubhouse Explore, and how in spite of the pandemic, members traveled to Tulum, Mexico, and documented themselves hanging out on the beach and attending a dance club, largely without masks.
