Kerry Katona is now a millionaire again after setting up an OnlyFans account and serving a demand from subscribers with foot fetishes.
The former Atomic Kitten singer revealed in an exclusive interview with The Mirror that she's now earning "tens of thousands" of pounds from the adult subscription service, which had to turn its back on banning porn a few months back due to pressure from its creators.
Katona, 41, was officially declared bankrupt in 2008 and her work dried up again during the pandemic, as it did for many. She borrowed £50 from her mum to set up her OnlyFans and she now has more than 2,000 subscribers paying a subscription fee of £18 a month.
"I just send sexy messages and pictures, but nothing more than topless," she told The Mirror.
"I've had loads of requests for foot selfies from people with foot fetishes.
"Some are men and women texting me their sex issues and I'm like a therapist for them - their fantasy.
"Others aren't crude at all. They'll see me on TV and say, 'you're smashing it, kid! What have you been up to today?'
"I've got a great rapport with my fellas. Others say, 'Kerry you've really helped me through my addiction' or 'I used to fancy you from Atomic Kitten days'."
The mum of five never thought she'd live to see her 40th birthday; life after Atomic Kitten was tough with toxic relationships, money worries and a cocaine addiction, which saw her on the brink of financial ruin.
She said none of her kids were shocked by her plan to set up an OnlyFans account. "I started out as a Page three model and owe my career to that, so it's no different for me or the children, who have grown up seeing me doing shoots."
"People are quick to say, 'she's desperate' if I get out a bit of nipple, but I've made my first million since bankruptcy and I'm so, so proud," she added.
"If it wasn't for OnlyFans I wouldn't have had money to invest in myself and in making more companies."
