Andre Barbosa's Music Video Pokes Fun at Squatting Stint in Boca Raton Mansion
By Susanna Kim
The Florida man who gained notoriety from claiming he had a legal right to squat in a $2.5 million home in Boca Raton has published a music video, shot against a backdrop of the mansion, days after police ejected him from the mansion. Bank of America asked a court to eject Andre "Loki" Barbosa from a home it owned in Boca Raton, Fla., leading police to seize the home last week while he was away from the house.
On Monday, Barbosa released a music video on YouTube, showing he and others dancing in front of green screen images of the home, as first reported by the Sun-Sentinel newspaper. The Brazilian national, 23, has not been charged by police for any crime. In December, he filed papers with the court, using a legal maneuver to say he had a right to stay in the home called "adverse possession." Bank of America filed an injunction against Barbosa last month.
Last week, in a statement issued after the home was secured, a spokeswoman for Bank of America said it appreciated "the assistance of local authorities and the patience of neighbors as we worked to have the trespassers removed. "We take trespassing seriously, and in the interest of the community, we will take appropriate legal action to protect this and all properties we service," the statement said. The entirety of Barbosa's video, called "I Don't Wanna Let You Go," is below.
