Five members of the TikTok influencer group the Hype House have been sued by their former landlord for $300,000 worth of damage at their old luxury Hollywood mansion.  

Danny Fitzgerald has sued Hype House co-founders Thomas Petrou, and Cole ‘Lil Huddy’ Hudson, as well as, Mia Hayward, Calvin Goldby, and Patrick Huston, for damage to his 10-bedroom, 16-bathroom Weidlake Drive property. 

Fitzgerald filed the lawsuit under breach of contract as he claimed the group agreed to pay him $10,000 a month over a 40-month period to pay for the damages, but he claims they aren’t living up to their promise. 

In court documents, obtained by TMZ, the group has only been paying him $2,500 per month since January 2021, after they evacuated the property five months before their lease ended in May 2021. 

Fitzgerald claimed he sent the wildly popular content group a notice to pay the agreed balance, but they never did, according to TMZ. 

The landlord, who self-claims to be the ‘owner of the biggest influencer homes in LA,’ is asking for the remaining balance to be paid in full immediately.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Fitzgerald and the Petrou, who manages the Hype House, for comment.  

Fitzgerald also rents to the GO House, a game show-based content house, and to YouTuber RiceGum, whose legal name is Bryan Quang Le, according to the landlord’s Instagram. 

The Hype House’s former 10-bedroom. 16-bath property featured a main and guest house, a pool, and a large garage to fill with luxury cars. The interior of the home had a light and dark contrast with black doors, white and gray walls, and dark flooring. 

The space also featured plenty of natural light and entertainment space. 

The group paid for the $50,000-a-month property through brand deals made through their group’s collective 21.3million current followers, in addition to the millions who follow them as individuals. 

Hype House was formed in December 2019 by then-17-year-old Hudson and 21-year-old Petrou. It was originally going to be named House of Olympus before the group settled on Hype House. 

Fitzgerald claimed he sent the wildly popular content group a notice to pay the agreed balance, but they never did and that they vacated the property (pictured) five months before their lease was up. He is now asking for the remaining balance to be paid in full immediately

One of the most notorious content houses in Hollywood, it has seen plenty of big-name TikTokers roll through its doors, including Charli and Dixie D’Amelio. 

But like any place where young adults are, the drama was ensured to happen. Early on, another co-founder Daisy Keech left the group to start her own content house after she accused Petrou of giving her no credit for her founding role, despite putting a reported $10,000 down on the house. 

Another member Tony Lopez was accused of sexual misconduct while in the house and was said to have messaged underage girls. Lopez had denied all allegations against him. 

The group – which also has a Netflix documentary – also ran into trouble after throwing a birthday for member Larri ‘Larray’ Merritt during the COVID-19 pandemic. Roughly 70 people crammed into the house to party mask-less, despite restrictions at the time. 

Among those in attendance included YouTubers James Charles and Emma Chamberlain, Nikita Dragun, and the D’Amelio sisters, among others.
