Kerry Katona says she was able to ‘turn my life around massively’ and provide for her family since joining OnlyFans.
She previously said the platform, which hosts adult content, was her way of taking back ‘control’ of her glamour shots, which is how she started out.
Her audience has grown steadily to the point it has provided enough income to launch businesses such as her clothing boutique.
Kerry, 40, said she is ‘proud’ of her OnlyFans career – which she says has netted her tens of thousands a month.
She told Metro.co.uk: ‘It turned my life around massively. I was able to invest in myself, I was able to become CEO of my own company, I was able to set up Marnii my dating app, and Kerry’s boutique.
‘I’ve done photoshoots and magazines and pictures that are no different than what I do on OnlyFans. They all make their money.
‘I go on the beach topless with my kids on a family holiday every year and the paps are taking pictures. They’ve got money in their pocket. I thought, “Hang on a minute. I’ll do it myself and I’ll make the money.” I’ve got kids to feed as well. I’m not embarrassed. I’m proud. I’m empowered.
‘I started off as a glamour model. I’ve gone back to my roots. I’ve not done anything on OnlyFans that I haven’t done in magazines. I go topless but for me they’re just a pair of t**s!’
She briefly addressed the site’s recent plans to remove all pornographic content (which have since been dropped).
‘I don’t do sex explicit things or anything in that way but I understand why there is so much anger,’ the former Atomic Kitten star shared.
‘If that was me I’d be up s**t creek now, I’d be in a massive, massive panic but I’m very fortunate that I don’t do that.’
The TV personality is mum to Molly, 19, Lilly, 18, Heidi, 14, Max, 13, and Dylan-Jorge, seven and is fully supportive of whatever career they want to have in future.
She revealed this extends to OnlyFans, adding: ‘I wouldn’t be best pleased but who am I to stop them?
‘You do what you feel is best for you, all I can do is support them and guide them.’
Kerry is giving back and supporting an important cause by teaming up with Raffall, offering people the chance to win her 2019 Blue Range Rover SVR, valued at £120,000.
You can enter via her page on the Raffall website with tickets costing £30, and the winner could receive the car from Kerry in person.
10% of the proceeds will go to the Mental Health Foundation, a cause Kerry was keen to support due to her own experiences with bi-polar.
Kerry told us: ‘I believe in a higher power. I believe there’s something great for me out there, they have a plan for me.
‘I had a fit off coke and I died, and was brought back and I was brought back for a reason. And it’s helping others by telling my story whether I’m going through addiction, bankruptcy, divorce, mental health.
‘By doing doing this raffle I’m helping others. I’d love to give all my money to charity but I just can’t do that because I’ve got kids to feed myself. So by doing this I’m able to give something to charity and make somebody else’s dream come true.’
‘If people can’t see something they can’t understand it, and that’s why the money is going to a mental health charity,’ she explained.
‘People need to speak out now. Even as healthy as I look I still suffer. I had a cry yesterday. I’m open and honest about it.’
You can enter the raffle until March 31, 2022 at Raffall.com at 7.30pm or when the last ticket is sold.Credit: Original article published here.
