Bella Thorne set a record with a $2 million payday on OnlyFans by promising nude photos in a pay-per-view post.
But OnlyFans p0rn stars say Bella "scammed" her fans and now the service has made policy changes that will affect their payouts.
P0rn stars aren't the only ones who are upset over Bella's PPV post. Her fans are demanding refunds because the "nude" photos they thought they were paying $200 for turned out to be lingerie photos already leaked on the Internet last week.
"Naked. NAKED?! Yes naked," reads a screenshot of a message from Thorne's OnlyFans account. The pay-per-view post cost $200, according to multiple Twitter users who shelled out the money only to see the 22-year-old wearing lingerie, not "naked" as the message promised.
Y’all know how stupid you gotta be to pay Bella Thorne (a millionaire) $200 on her Only Fans to see her in lingerie drinking wine in her dusty kitchen when all you gotta do is type in "Bella Thorne titty" in google and you’re already getting more content.

The alleged bait and switch trended on Twitter, as hundreds of X-rated OnlyFans members demanded their money back after being duped by the actress.
The controversy caused a policy change overnight, according to the NY Post.
The policy change was tweeted out to OnlyFans members, announcing tips are now capped at $100, and one-time viewing fees for a PPV post can't exceed $50.
a friend just showed me this—
These are the countries now affected by Bella Thorne’s big ass scam.
Unfortunately, the onlyfans content creators in these countries will be unable to withdraw funds whenever they please & will now have to wait a full 30 days. pic.twitter.com/95daPusLdr

OnlyFans posted an update Friday morning, announcing the policy change is only in effect for South American and Caribbean countries.
Is it currently appearing on your account that you have to wait 30 days? I looked at mine and it’s not showing but there’s speculations it for those outside of the US

But American creators worry that the policy change will eventually affect them, too.
Thankfully I haven’t seen anything change on my page yet. But just getting scared that it will update.

When reached for comment, reps for the London-based OnlyFans told The NY 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."
Bella Thorne really ruined a good thing for people who actually use onlyfans to make a living and pay bills.

the only thing is because Bella lied and charged $200 for nudes that ended up being lingerie pics now OF made a cap of $50 for PPV and $100 cap on tip and now people can only withdraw money once a month
