Michelle Alexandra: OnlyFans model receives death threats from ex-BFs after coming out as transgender
An OnlyFans model has revealed how she fell victim to hate-filled messages after she publicly came out as transgender, leaving her afraid of returning to the UK. Michelle Alexandra, 27, from Manchester, took to her Instagram to announce that she was trans which led to a spree of death threats directed toward her, particularly from men who previously slept with her unaware of her previous gender.
Alexandra feared that she would receive backlash and did not want to be in the UK when the news would break out. Thus, she revealed her gender on January 4, during a holiday with her family in the Dominican Republic. Alexandra will not be returning to the Kingdom until June and is currently journeying around South America. "The messages have been horrible and have left me feeling very scared for my life. Men who I was previously involved with, or their relatives have been saying things like 'we hope you die,' or 'we’re going to kill you'. The things that are being said are disgusting and deeply hurtful," she said, as per the DailyMail. "Some of them are very angry and feel as if sleeping with me now makes them gay. News of me coming out went viral and they’ve gone crazy."
"It’s left me very nervous about coming back to the UK because I might see some of these people on a night out and they could cause me real harm," she added. "I have blocked all those who have sent me threatening messages but if they persist, I will be forced to contact the police."
Alexandra was named Mitch by her parents Sue and Mick, 62, and has one older brother, Jake, 29. She admitted that her parents have been supportive throughout her journey. "It was when we moved to America when I was eight years old and I had to wear a boys school uniform that I realised this wasn't me. When we moved back to Spain again I decided that I wanted to be who I was - a girl," she recounted. The social media influencer started taking hormones when she was 14 and had her first breast augmentation operation at 17. Finally, 18-year-old Alexandra legally changed her name to Michelle and had her first gender reassignment surgery.
Alexandra confirmed that she had no intentions of deceiving any of the men she was involved with in her past. However, she admitted that not all of them were aware that she was transgender at the time. "When I was younger, I was dating guys for one or two days that didn't really know about me then I wouldn't see them again. They’ve now seen me come out and they’re angry," she said. "This has been the hardest part for me, guys in my DMs just saying, "what the f***", calling me horrible names and threatening me. They’re making me feel scared." In response to the angry inboxes, Alexandra simply wrote, "I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do now to change the past. If that's how you feel, then that's on you," before blocking them.
The social media model, who makes a living off her OnlyFans account, is planning to start a podcast and YouTube channel based around identity issues for transgender people, as per the DailyMail. Despite the hate messages, Alexandra was also met with a few positive ones. "If someone is feeling how I felt when I was younger and they want to speak to somebody other than their parents, I want to be there for them,” she said. "I've had a lot of messages already from younger and older people, there's also parents asking for advice on their children. I have said to myself that even if I help one person, I will be happy."
