Wondering why former Holly’s World and The Girls Next Door reality star Holly Madison is no longer involved with 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque at Mandalay Place? Seems the nightclub was allegedly recording the dancers and Madison as they changed clothes in their dressing rooms.

A lawsuit claims the partners in the burlesque-themed club “covertly video recorded dancers who performed at the club as they changed costumes.”

General manager Avi Kopelman and club executives Robert W. Sabes, Noel Bowman and Robert Fry along with three companies are named in the lawsuits filed in two separate complaints.

Originally, the speakeasy was a partnership with Mandalay Bay, the company that owns and operates Minus 5 Ice Bars at Mandalay Place and the Monte Carlo and Madison.

Madison has not performed at the club since last spring.

The nightclub’s attorneys call the lawsuit a “publicity stunt” and noted that “as soon as the club learned that video cameras were capturing dancers as they changed costumes, ‘The issue was rectified to everyone’s satisfaction.’ He added that there is no evidence that the dancers’ images were ‘captured or republished,’” according to the Las Vegas Sun.
