Is Sahara Ray OK? OnlyFans star and Justin Bieber's ex checks into rehab for drug abuse
'I just checked into a mental health, wellness, drug and alcohol addiction treatment centre retreat. It's really beautiful,' Sahara Ray shared
OnlyFans star Sahara Ray has reportedly checked into a rehab facility in Miami for drug and alcohol abuse. The 28-year-old Australian-American model is quite notorious for her scandalous acts, which include skinny dipping with Justin Bieber in Hawaii or inviting her fans to watch her having sex on camera. She is the daughter of noted Australian surfer Tony Ray, and showed promise as an aspiring surfer in her youth as well.
However, in the recent past, Ray has "spiraled into a lifestyle of wild partying and X-rated behavior", which has raised many eyebrows even among her loyal followers. She reportedly enrolled in the 30-day treatment program at the Miami facility on Monday, December 13, and has promised to document her journey to recovery on social media. While her ex-flame Justin Bieber might be enjoying cozy family time with wife Hailey this holiday season, Sahara Ray is likely to spend a low-key Christmas at the rehab.
Born in Torquay in Australia's Victoria province, Sahara Ray mainly grew up in Los Angeles. She suddenly emerged in the spotlight in August 2016, when she was papped skinny-dipping with Justin Bieber. Later, the 'Peaches' singer also posted a video of himself and Sahara enjoying a water fight in a pool.
The pair split soon afterward, and Sahara Ray decided to try a career in the adult industry. She often shared explicit photos on Instagram, where she has more than 1 million followers, before launching her OnlyFans account. Fans can access the 28-year-old model's exclusive OnlyFans content at a monthly subscription fee of $15. She also owns her personal swimwear brand called Sahara Ray Swims.
Ray has had her fair share of controversy time and again. She was slammed by many when she promised to release a sex tape after reaching 10,000 subscribers. Once, she landed in trouble for a desert photoshoot where she was accused of sexualizing a hostage situation. Though she did not open up about her struggles with drugs and alcoholism in the past, Ray had once shared how she was the victim of male predatory behavior.
It is not exactly known what incident prompted Ray to check into a rehab, but she has been candid about her journey to recovery since the very beginning. Recording herself from her bedroom at the rehab, Ray shared, "I just checked into a mental health, wellness, drug and alcohol addiction treatment centre retreat. It's really beautiful. It's in Malibu. I'm really excited to share my story with you guys. I'll be here for 30 days. This is day one."
"I'm also documenting everything and I'll be doing a YouTube video, so you guys can see the really vulnerable side. I'm going to keep it light on Instagram," she added.
