Bella Thorne’s $2M payday has OnlyFans sex stars, subscribers crying ‘scam’

Read Time:4 Minute, 40 Second

Bella Thorne reportedly set records with her OnlyFans debut, but now some competitors and paying customers are calling it a big striptease — emphasis on the tease.

The former Disney princess-turned-porn-producer infamously “crashed” the NSFW platform when she joined this week and OnlyFans has hyped her $2 million haul in the days since. But now, some sex workers on the steamy streaming service claim the 22-year-old is cramping their paychecks.

“Naked. NAKED?! Yes naked,” reads an alleged screenshot of a message from Thorne’s OnlyFans account, shared to Twitter, accompanied by a pay-per-view post for $200. The pricey post, according to multiple Twitter users, showed the bombshell — who has not responded to The Post’s requests for comment — in lingerie, not “no clothes naked,” as the message promised.

Although it’s unclear if Thorne herself was offering the nudes, fellow creators are blaming her for the new restrictions they’ve noticed on their accounts.

The alleged bait and switch, according to incensed internet sleuths, caused thwarted subscribers to demand refunds, or “chargebacks” en masse. The promised skin shots would’ve reversed course for Thorne, who recently tweeted, “Nooooo I’m not doing nudity,” accompanied by Page Six’s story about her debut on the typically X-rated OnlyFans.

In a policy change allegedly made overnight, online oglers’ tips are now capped at $100, and one-time viewing fees for a post can’t exceed $50, according to one performer, who told her 14,200 followers, “no one was warned we found out ourselves.”

OnlyFans creators are worried, too, that they’ll have to wait 30 days, instead of the usual seven, to cash out their booty from the app. According to a screenshot of an email circulating on Twitter, OnlyFans is allegedly rolling out the restriction in South American countries first, “to prevent fraudulent payouts,” but creators based in the US and elsewhere are worried the policy is coming for them, too.

When reached for comment, reps for the London-based OnlyFans told The Post “transaction limits are set to help prevent overspending and to allow our users to continue to use the site safely. We value all of the feedback received since this change was implemented and we will continue to review these limits.”

OnlyFans reps also denied that Thorne’s shtick caused them to implement new rules — “any changes to transaction limits are not based on any one user” — and their posted policy still promises funds on a “7-day rolling basis”

Still, some disgruntled creators are claiming they know the naked truth.

“Bella lied to subscribers selling a $200 lingerie photo saying it was a nude,” wrote Fabiana Fox to her 35,000 fans on Twitter, adding “this impacts everyone.”

Fellow, porn poser Iona Rae sniped, “For actual T–s and A– check out a REAL sex worker,” and launched an online petition to get Bella booted from OnlyFans.

“Bella Thorne, shame on you,” wrote another Twitter user. “You singlehandedly ruined thousands of sex worker income.” A few OnlyFans creators pointed out that Thorne already had substantial money in the bank: “she isn’t paying her rent with this. It’s fun money for her.”

Others used the scandal to boost their own pages: “Subscribe to my onlyfans i won’t scam you like bella thorne did.”

Thorne’s feed can be accessed for $20 per month. She announced the new endeavor Aug. 19 on Instagram, joining the scores of porn stars and more mainstream names such as Cardi B and Blac Chyna. Thorne told the Los Angeles Times that she’s planning to offer screenwriting and baking classes on her exclusive feed, which, according to the outlet, features bikini pics and one image of Thorne eating a hot dog.

She also claimed that she’s working on a documentary with acclaimed “The Florida Project” and “Tangerine” director Sean Baker about her edgy experience with the site. However, Baker tweeted his own statement Friday, clarifying that he is “NOT attached to this project,” and saying he warned Thorne’s team to “consult with sex workers and address the way she went about this as to NOT hurt the sex work industry.”

Those impressed with Thorne’s antics can also shower the star with gift items from her Amazon Wish List, like Christmas decorations, dog toys, fake decorative cakes, a set of $719 golf clubs — and an inflatable floating beer pong table, in addition to their monthly OnlyFans payments.

OnlyFans “creators” are entitled to 80% of the fees, the rest goes to the platform, who promised in a press release that the “Thorne Effect” would trickle down.

“Bella’s success story on OnlyFans paves the way for current and future content creators on the platform to lean into their entrepreneurial skills to find this type of rapid success on the platform,” the release said.

However, some frisky fans, even the ones who didn’t cough up $200, aren’t happy with Thorne, either.

“I am one of the suckers that subscribed to Bella’s Onlyfans for $20,” wrote one Thorne fan online who added that the feed is less titillating than expected. “Every single regular post is a repost from her Instagram,” read the tweet. “A complete scam.”
