The 22-year-old American actor Bella Thorne has set a new record by earning over USD 1 million on subscription-based social platform `OnlyFans,` within the first 24 hours and In less than a week since making her OnlyFans account, Bella Thorne has made $2 million.
OnlyFans briefly crashed after Thorne launched her account last week, Page Six reports. The former Disney Channel star tweeted that she wouldn’t post nudity, but did poll her followers on what they wanted to see more of, including “tongue teasing, lingerie, booty, showering, and twerking.”
Although she said she wouldn’t post nudity, she sent her subscribers a Pay-Per-View (PPV) message Thursday allegedly advertised as a nude photo. The message was priced at $200.
When fans paid the fee and opened the photo, they were treated to an image of Thorne apparently topless and covering her chest. Disgruntled at the lack of nudity, many who paid for the photo issued chargebacks on their credit cards, requiring OnlyFans to refund them the $200 viewing fee.
Workers claim that after the incident, OnlyFans began capping PPV messages at $50, and is only allowing its creators to receive tips of up to $100. In addition, creators in certain countries would only be allowed to withdraw their OnlyFans revenue, which was previously held 7 days after subscribers pay for their content, after 30 days.
Thorne told the Los Angeles Times and Paper that she’s using her OnlyFans experience as research for a movie she was working on about digital sex work. She added that the revenue from her subscriptions, which start at $20 per month, would fund her production company and be donated to charity. (Thorne didn’t specify which charity or cause.)
Sex workers blame Thorne for OnlyFans’ change in policies.
