Bella Thorne, OnlyFans and the battle over monetising content

Actress Bella Thorne has been embroiled in a controversy over selling $200 (£149.70) nude photos on OnlyFans that were not as described.

Her actions on the subscription content platform resulted in OnlyFans placing a cap on the prices creators can charge.

The former Disney actress issued an apology to content creators, who say their incomes will be impacted.

However OnlyFans told the BBC pricing changes had “been in the pipeline for a while”.

OnlyFans has become popular as a platform where content creators can post premium provocative and intimate photos, videos and text messages. OnlyFans takes a 20% commission on each transaction.
