That’s not what she meant by bare-knuckle.
Ex-UFC fighter Paige VanZant is flabbergasted over fans allegedly mailing her cash for X-rated pics and imploring her to set up a celebrity OnlyFans account.
“It’s just not for me at this stage of my life,” said an aghast VanZant, 26, who went viral during the coronavirus lockdown for uploading Instagram pics of herself doing chores while semi-nude. The Oregon-born scrapper reportedly received the lecherous requests after doing a write-in Q&A session with her husband and fellow fighter Austin Vanderford, reported the Sun.
“There were 200 questions and about 20 of them were, ‘Hey, why don’t you make an OnlyFans?’ ” said VanZant, who was recently signed to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship after parting ways with the UFC.
The former UFC flyweight said she told prodders, “I’m not going to make an OnlyFans but if you really want to send me money and you appreciate the things I post on Instagram, you can Venmo me.”
To the blonde brawler’s surprise, many people sent money with several frisky fan-Zants thinking “that they would be receiving an explicit picture” in return.
However, despite frequently posting saucy swimsuit snaps to the ‘Gram, that’s where VanZant drew the line. “That was absolutely not what was going to happen,” she said. “I’m sorry for the confusion and for anybody who sent me money, hoping to get nudes or anything like that.”
Her bottom line: “It was a dumb joke but no, I’m not going to make an OnlyFans. End of that — don’t send me any money.” Nonetheless, VanZant, who reportedly makes more money on Instagram than she did with fighting, maintained she doesn’t “judge any males, any females who are on OnlyFans.”
VanZant said she has since donated the salacious contributions to a charity in Florida where she currently resides.
This isn’t the first time the photogenic pugilist has had her privacy violated of late. Earlier this month, a thief allegedly broke into VanZant’s car and left the door open in the middle of a downpour.
She replied, “Listen, if you’re going to break into my car, please shut the door.”
