AceShowbiz - OnlyFans can be a reliable source of income for many people. Whether it's monthly subscriptions, pay-per-view (PPV) content, private messages/media or tips, these approaches are applicable to rake it in if the users know how to spoil their subscribers.
People can make six figures or more from their explicit content, especially when it comes to racy photos and videos. So, it is no surprise to see celebrities joining the adult-only platform as well despite their fame and wealth.
These are celebrities who successfully turn OnlyFans to a money-making machine.
Blac Chyna, whose real name is Angelina Renee White, made a jaw-dropping amount on OnlyFans. Joining the adult-only platform in April 2020, the former "Rob & Chyna" star has since risen to the top in terms of earnings.
The model, who has about 150 photos on her profile, earned an estimated $20 million per month from 16.2 million followers who paid a $19.99 monthly subscription fee. It made her become the highest-paid creator on the platform.
Following Blac's footsteps was her ex and baby daddy, Tyga. The "Ayy Macarena" hitmaker created an OnlyFans account after a leaked photo of his genitals went viral. Though some fans assumed that the leak was just a stunt, the move actually helped him earn a reported $7.9 million on the site.
However, in August 2021, Tyga announced that he deleted his account because he was set to launch its competitor called Myystar later that year. According to a press release, Myystar will give "users the creative freedom they deserve in response to OnlyFans banning sexually explicit videos come October." It further stated that the platform "will only take 10% from creators' earnings as opposed to OnlyFans 20%."
Mia Khalifa earned much more money on OnlyFans compared to her time in the adult entertainment industry. The former porn actress, who previously admitted to making a "total of around $12,000" from doing porn, divulged in an interview that she made nearly $10,000 a day on the London-based content subscription service.
About the reason why she transitioned into OnlyFans, Mia told Yahoo Life, "I was looking to other people to put value on myself. I was looking for validation in every crevice that I could, without actually doing internal work." She added, "I was naive, vulnerable, and malleable. Very easily talked into things, especially if it was by a man."
Larsa Pippen is really raking it in on OnlyFans. Although she doesn't sell nudes on the platform, "The Real Housewives of Miami" alum said on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" that she banked $200,000 "within two weeks from the same person."
Larsa launched her OnlyFans page in May 2021. At that time, she announced, "Welcome to my OnlyFans, a really fun way to get to know the real me and for me to interact one on one with my true fans! It's got behind the scenes of my wild life, me showing off my personal favorite swimsuits and lingerie, and live chats and personal DM's where we get to talk. I want to show women all over the world no matter where they are in life they can be sexy and successful!"
Erica Mena is another celebrity who managed to bring in plenty of money from the anything-goes social site. The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star, who launched her account in 2020 with a steamy teaser featuring her ex-husband Safaree Samuels, earned more than £3 million per month from the platform.
Erica's new venture prompted some trolls to call her "broke." However, she already shut down the critics as saying, "If y'all could you would. Keep that in mind every time y'all think someone is broke just for adding another just because way of getting coins... We so broke So don't forget to subscribe Y'all !"
Harry Jowsey revealed in August 2021 that his OnlyFans account has helped him get $500,000. However, it didn't take long for the "Too Hot to Handle" alum to gain more income as he confirmed two months later that he had made more than $1 million on the site.
In February this year, Harry got candid about his experience of using the app. Noting that he had received a lot of requests for feet and armpit images, he told Kent Small, "I get in trouble if I like shaved them or, or touching like they want to like grow and it's very interesting. I respect it."
Rubi Rose is among the stars who has proven how effective OnlyFans is to make money. Just one day after creating her account, the "He in His Feelings" femcee successfully bagged $22,000.
"Calm 22k on my first day of only fans," the 24-year-old penned on Instagram back in July 2020. However, when appearing on "Big Facts" in May this year, she declared that she made over $1 million there.
Cardi B's huge success in the music industry won't stop her from making more money. Despite getting ridiculed for starting her own account on OnlyFans, the "WAP" hitmaker remained unbothered and managed to gain more than 81 million subscribers on the platform.
Although she charged significantly cheaper than other creators with only $4.99 per month, the wife of Offset earned $9.4million a month. In her profile bio, the 29-year-old Grammy-winning artist exclaimed, "WELCOME TO MY WORLD!"
Bella Thorne is one of the most popular celebrities on OnlyFans. The former Disney darling quickly broke the record for the most earnings in one week after becoming the first account holder to bank $1 million in her first 24 hours. She, however, was slammed by some sex workers for allegedly harming their income.
Bella has since issued a public apology. "I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalise the stigmas," she said. "I am a mainstream face and when you have a voice, a platform, you try to use you in helping others and advocate for something bigger than yourself (sic). Again in this process I hurt you and for that I'm truly sorry."
Bhad Bhabie, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, wasn't playing when she said she made $50 million on OnlyFans. To back up her claim, she unleashed screenshots of her earnings page on the adult-only platform, which showed her making close to $53 million gross, with her net after fees around $43 million.
Clapping back at critics who doubted her, Bhad Bhabie wrote, "Go cry about it b***h." She went on to thank Scoop Agency Partners, saying, "thanks @scoopagencypartners couldn't have done it without u."
