TURNER PAIGE Paige VanZant was taken aback when fans paid for naked photos of the former UFC star and demanded that she open an OnlyFans account.
FORMER Paige VanZant, a UFC fighter, revealed her surprise at receiving requests for naked photos in exchange for money.
The fighter revealed that fans sent her money in exchange for X-rated content and also asked her to create an OnlyFans account.
The 26-year-old frequently shares glamorous photographs of herself on social media but avoids adult content.
VanZant is now a member of the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and discussed previous requests during a recent Q&A session with husband Austin Vanderford.
"Austin and I did a fan question [session] in which you guys could write in," she explained.
There were 200 questions, and about 20% of them were along the lines of 'Hey, why don't you start an OnlyFans?'
Essentially, I said, 'I'm not going to create an OnlyFans account, but if you want to send me money and appreciate the things I post on Instagram, you can Venmo me.'
I was like, 'Go ahead and send me money to express your gratitude.'
I did have a large number of people Venmo me, which I did not anticipate.
Five or ten people sent me money in the mistaken belief that they would receive an explicit photograph. "That was absolutely not the case. "I'm sorry for the confusion and to anyone who sent me money in the hope of receiving nudes or anything like that.
The point is, I'm not going to do an OnlyFans because I'm not going to do that kind of thing. "I went ahead and donated all the money that was sent to me to a charity here in Florida because it felt strange. "It was a stupid joke, but no, I'm not going to do an OnlyFans. That is the end of it – do not send me any money. And I most emphatically do not judge any males or females who are members of OnlyFans.
"It's simply not for me at this point in my life, and anyone who continues to inquire on social media will not convince me."
VanZant's car was recently broken into during a suspected robbery, flooding her Jeep.
Additionally, she shared red bikini photos on Instagram with her 2.7 million followers.
Both incidents occurred after she returned to the beach following the postponement of her bare knuckle debut until February.
