Now, the 34-year-old has revealed just how much money she’s earned on the adult subscription-based website since joining almost two years ago.
In Yahoo Lifestyle’s exclusive preview of The Wash's upcoming mini-documentary, ‘Hayley Vernon: Life After MAFS’, the TV star spoke openly about OnlyFans and her life as a porn star.
“So I’ve been doing OnlyFans for I’d say two years now and I’ve made over $1.3 million,” she said. “It’s not bad at the end of the day.
“I never thought I'd be a girl in this situation. I was an ice addict for the biggest part of my adult life. The way in which my life is today, I could never, ever have imagined.
“I have to pinch myself some days, most days actually. I remember moving into my house on the Gold Coast, waking up and seeing this waterfront view, and I was just like, ‘Stop it, how did you get here?’. [A few years ago] I was stealing food from Woolies and Coles, how does this happen?”
After The Wash shared a preview of the doco on social media, followers quickly took to the comments to praise Hayley and express their surprise at the staggering amount she’s earning.
“Imagine referring to 1.3 million as ‘not bad’ #goals,” one person wrote.
“Good on her. We need more successful women,” another added.
"It's not for everyone, but good on her for making her money,” a third shared.
‘There's pretty much nothing that I don't do’
Since joining OnlyFans in August 2020, Hayley has evolved from sharing lingerie photos to hardcore pornography. She claims to be in the top 0.2% of creators worldwide and currently charges subscribers $10 per month.
“I started out just doing topless shots and bikini shots for probably the first three to four months, then I realised pretty quickly how much money was involved in it – and how lucrative it could be if I did a little bit more,” she details in the documentary.
“Then I did a little bit more, and a little bit more. [Now] people can see me do boy-girl content, girl-girl content, male-male-male content… There's pretty much nothing that I don't do,” she says, before quickly adding with a laugh, “I don't do anal”.
Just last week she won big at The Adult Industry Choice Awards, walking away with the title of ‘Best Newcomer Female Porn Star’.
Hayley previously revealed that she’s using her money from OnlyFans to kickstart her new career as a property developer, and recently purchased a block of land to build her dream house.
“There's one thing that's guaranteed to go up and that's property,” she posted on Instagram. “I was going to buy a Mercedes, I chatted to a few people then chatted sense into myself... Houses.
“I will buy houses and continue to roll in my Kia because, unlike cars, property investment is where it's f**king at! Can't f**k with this… Putting the plan into action!
“I could never ever have imagined or dreamt about the life that I’ve got now. Not in a thousand years did I think I’d be this incredibly blessed.”
Hayley’s announcement comes shortly after fellow MAFS star Olivia Frazer joined OnlyFans, with subscriptions costing $14.99 a month.
She previously announced that she would start off by posting lingerie photos and videos before including her partner Jackson Lonie, however, this is now uncertain seeing as their relationship is currently up in the air.
