Bella Thorne Earns $2 Million Since Launching OnlyFans Page

Bella Thorne is makin’ bank while doing some research for her next project…

The 22-year-old half-Cuban American actress/singer has reportedly earned $2 million since joining OnlyFans.

Thorne became a part of the subscription-only social media platform on Wednesday, charging users $20 a month for access to her feed.

The site — which allows influencers, adult entertainers and celebrities to share content that might be too X-rated for Instagram or Twitter — also hosts pages from Cardi B and some members of Bravo‘s Real Housewives programs.

But Thorne isn’t on OnlyFans just to make bank. She admits that’s certainly part of it: She’s planning on putting the earnings into her production company and toward charity.

But she also says she’s using the site as research for a new movie she’s making with Sean Baker, the director of such critically acclaimed indie films as The Florida Project andTangerine.

“It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently,” Thorne explained via text message. “What are the ins and outs? What does a platform like this do to its users? What’s the connective material between your life and your life inside the world of OnlyFans? … How can it change your life for the worse and the better? How far are you willing to go, and how far do you WANT to go? You can be me, or this talented girl from Montana, and OnlyFans could change your life — if you want it to, of course.”

Thorne said she plans to act in the film, which would be written and directed by Baker. The filmmaker declined to comment on the movie, but a source close to the project said it was “very early in its development — in its infancy — and probably years away from turning into anything.”

Thorne is still figuring out what she wants to share with OnlyFans users. So far, her page does feature some suggestive imagery — numerous bikini photos, her eating a hot dog — but nothing explicitly graphic.

In a poll, however, she did ask her fans what type of content they’d like from her; tongue teasing, lingerie, booty, showering and twerking were among the answers.

Ultimately, she said, she’s hoping her page can become a place she “can really just be more personal with my fans,” sending them “good night and good morning personal messages” via voice memo. She also plans to offer classes on writing in Final Draft, baking and songwriting.

Thorne, who rose to fame as a child star on the Disney Channel series Shake It Up, has been open about her serious acting ambitions in recent years. Since wrapping the Freeform series Famous in Love in 2018, she’s appeared in five films, most recently a thriller called Infamous, released on video-on-demand in June.

“To win an Oscar — that’s the thing that I’ve always wanted,” Thorne told The Times in 2018. “It goes up every year on my vision board.”

Bella Thorne & Prince Fox Release Music Video for Their Electro-Pop Song “Just Call”

Bella Thorne is having a smashing time…

The 19-year-old half-Cuban American singer/actress has joined voices with Prince Fox for the single “Just Call.”

Bella Thorne & Prince Fox

Thorne and Prince Fox appears in the new, split-screen video for the single, which features a smashing guitar scene.

The unique collaboration is a thought-provoking ode to the ever-so-relatable relationship struggles we’ve all faced at one time or another.

Directed by Joe Zohar, the captivating visual narrative shows the duo’s coping mechanisms, including throwing back shots at a neon-lit bar, splashing around in the bath, smashing a box of belongings with a guitar and lots of dramatic, mascara-streaked crying — all to the tune of the song’s simmering, electro-pop vibe.

“Just Call” first dropped as a single on Steve Aoki‘s label, Dim Mak, back in June. And it seems to be part of a new venture into music from Thorne, the former Disney Channel star who now stars in the Freeform series Famous in Love.
