The former $5,000-a-night hooker who accused Eliot Spitzer of choking her at The Plaza hotel was booted from an apartment last year because it was being used as a brothel, according to court documents.
Svetlana Travis was kicked out of the Midtown rental apartment in July, six months after signing the lease, amid complaints that strange men were going in and out of the pad, according to city Housing Court records.
City marshals evicted the 25-year-old vixen from the first-floor unit at 1125 Lexington Ave. after the building’s manager, Sierra Residential, issued several warnings and the landlord, Contor Associates, pursued legal action, according to records.
The building super “discovered that men were entering and leaving the apartment at approximately one-hour intervals on most afternoons,” court papers say.
Three months earlier, on April 30, one of the tenants called 911 to say he saw men through his peephole going into her apartment, 1A, throughout the day.
That same month, Contor Associates said in court that “the apartment is being used for the purpose of prostitution” and that the unit may have been illegally sublet.
“The apartment’s use is causing traffic in the building wherein different men are entering and leaving the apartment on an hourly basis, and which traffic is a security issue for the building,” the filing says.
Cops found no criminality, but the complaint was referred to the NYPD’s Organized Crime and Control Bureau, which handles vice crimes.
At one point, Sierra managing principal Adam Frisch confronted Travis, who told him she was about to leave for Russia on business and that a pal was staying in her unit.
Frisch also contacted Paul Nippes, a New Jersey businessman who was listed as a co-signer on Travis’ lease.
“The management of the building has asked me to reach out to you to let you know that they have some very serious concerns about things that are going on in the apartment and are considering eviction proceedings,” Frisch wrote in an April 7 email to Nippes. “I think it would be a good idea for us to speak when you can.”
Frisch then received an email from a “Lana Travi” saying: “Hi! Svetlana had left the apartment in January, what are you talking about?”
In its eviction notice, Contor Associates wrote that Lana Travi was an alias for Svetlana Travis.
According to court records, Travis and Nippes were evicted from another apartment, in Murray Hill, after falling behind on $6,000 in rent.
Nippes could not be immediately reached for comment Tuesday.
Earlier this month, Spitzer, 56, was accused of flying into a rage and choking Travis — but she then clammed up and flew off to Russia.
The Bronx DA’s Office is investigating the alleged choking case after Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. recused himself, citing close ties to Spitzer.
According to court records, Travis — who wrote a 2014 tell-all article about working as a $5,000-a-night call girl made similar allegations in an assault suit she filed against another man in 2013.
Spitzer, the infamous “Client 9,” quit as governor in 2008 over a hooker scandal. He has denied choking Travis inside the $1,000-a-night room at The Plaza on Feb. 13.
Lis Smith, a former Mayor Bill de Blasio spokeswoman, broke up with the ex-Love Guv in December when he confessed that Travis tried to squeeze him for cash, her close friend has told The Post.
