B. Simone is trying to keep the energy going, what with Hollywood shut down and her show Wild ‘N Out on an informal hiatus. While in the past, she’s caught her share of flack for her views on men and finances, it seems as if even she couldn’t avoid the allure of OnlyFans.
OnlyFans is a popular social media service that offers its users a way to create quick subscription-based content for their “fans” that has come to prominence in the last few years. It makes it easier for people with a following to have a closed community of supporters for their content.
Of course, this also means that it has a large following because sex workers use it independently online for their own content, leveraging it for themselves.
Celebrities started turning to the platform during the quarantine, as most of them saw their own money drying up due to everything being shut down. Musicians haven’t been able to tour in months; reality show stars have been unable to film due to the pandemic and more. That hasn’t stopped the hustling influencers from keeping a check coming in – via OnlyFans.
Cardi B had previously tweeted, and deleted, that she was doing a “partnership with only fans,” and said that every time someone starts a rumor that she will be addressing it there. She did, and after sharing some of her earnings from the site, fans are mad she’s taking money from “regular people.”

One fan from OnlyFans took a screenshot of some $100 tips that he gave to the star on her account and then tweeted at her on Twitter when he felt like he wasn’t getting his money’s worth.
Cardi B retweeted his post, adding “Hi baby,” in hopes of showing him some love – and maybe keeping the tips coming, because who doesn’t love free money, especially rich folks. Cardi’s fans thought the same thing and started to tweet her negatively.
While the fate of MTV’s Wild ‘N Out is still unknown due to host and creator Nick Cannon’s firing by Viacom, many fans of the show are still keeping up with the favorite and breakout cast members, like B. Simone. Though the comedienne has weathered her share of drama from the show, she’s still focused on getting the bag – whether the show is on the air or not.
B. Simone made the announcement on her Instagram that she had joined the fan-focused site, making her just the recent in a long line of celebrities that have joined the site during these unparalleled times.
While she didn’t indicate the exact type of content that would be featured on her OnlyFans page, it wasn’t hard to extrapolate that it might be more than funny jokes or memes. Posing in a black and white topless picture – with a parental advisory sticker covering her breasts – Simone provided the link in her Instagram Stories to her newly launched business venture.
“I made an OnlyFans F**k It,” the VH1 cast member and host wrote. She joins other VH1 stars like Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena in parlaying their reality show fame into hardcore dollars.
