Update: A number of sex workers have called out Bella Thorne for allegedly “scamming” her way to making millions on OnlyFans and encouraging the platform from introducing a series of new rules and guidelines restricting adult entertainment workers’s income.
Umm, excusez-moi, madam, monsieur and le non-binary cutie-patooties, former Disney star turned poet turned award-winning porn director Bella Thorne just launched her own Only Fans account… and has already made what will take you and me decades to earn (and only if we’re absolutely frugal) in just 24 hours.
Last week, the Shake It Up star announced she was pivoting to OnlyFans, after Instagram’s strict censorship policies denied her the chance to monetise her posts. “OnlyFans is the first platform where I can fully control my image; without censorship, without judgement, and without being bullied online for being me,” the 22-year-old actress told Paper at the time.
And now, within a mere 24 hours, Thorne has reportedly made more than you and I will make in our entire lives—a wooping $1.39 million already! For a hefty $20 USD (approximately $27.79 AUD) a month, you can get access to all of Thorne’s content—from raunchy pics, videos, tutorials, poems and more—which, thanks to OF’s pro-content-creator structure, gives her $16 USD per monthly subscriptions.
Now that’s a lot of dollarydoos.
Last year, Thorne made her adult movie directorial debut with a spicy thriller about sexting for Pornhub called Her & Him. The film rewarded her Pornhub’s prestigious Vision Award at the 2nd annual Pornhub Awards last October. The event was organised by Ty Dolla $ign, visually directed by Kanye West collaborator Willo Perron, and featured musical guests like Bad Bunny, Kali Uchis, Rico Nasty and Tommy Genesis.
Only Fans is really having a moment this year. With people stuck inside and not able to go on regular hookups, their lonely, horny and bored selves are turning to the platform now more than ever before. But, the platform is also for more than just adult entertainment, as content creators earn roughly 80 percent of their monthly earnings—by contrast, YouTube takes 45 percent of YouTubers’ ad revenue.
According to an Only Fans spokesperson, via Buzzfeed, from the 29th of February to 20th March, the platform saw 1.85 million new members (both content creators and consumers), including a 75% increase in people signing up between the 6th to 17th of March. Ofc, that stat definitely blew up after Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé name dropped the platform on their slip, slop, slaptastic remix of Megan’s “Savage.”
