Jessica Andrade 'not upset' over OnlyFans nude photo leak: 'Enjoy while body is nice'
UFC fighter Jessica Andrade, 29, joined the controversial OnlyFans platform following the advice of her wife Fernanda Gomes to make some extra cash
A former UFC champion has decided to show a different side of herself through OnlyFans. She's so far satisfied with the experience, despite her nude photos being leaked and going viral in Brazil.
Jessica Andrade, 29, joined the controversial platform a couple of months ago following the advice of her wife Fernanda Gomes to make some extra bucks after moving to Last Vegas full time. Last month, we reported how model Blac Chyna used a foot fetish to earn $20 million a month on the platform. We also reported how special ed teacher Courtney Tillia was earning 12 times her salary from OnlyFans.
“I wasn’t upset because I already imagined it could happen,” Andrade told MMA Fighting. “I’ve seen that happen to other fighters as well… I wasn’t upset because I did all this knowing that it would leak eventually. I’m 30 and my body won’t look pretty for the rest of my life, so we have to enjoy it while it’s nice. No one will want to see it later. [Laughs.] Better use it now, then when it’s gone. But I wasn’t upset. I thought it was funny because people did a lot of memes.”
Andrade, who is popularly known as 'Bate Estaca' or pile driver in Portuguese as a tribute to her fighting style, said that “life has taught me a lot" after she came out as a lesbian woman. The UFC star chimed in on the prejudice and backlash she suffered, saying it prepared her to live life without focusing too much on the negative energy.
“If I had done [those photos] against my will, it would’ve been different,” Andrade said. “But I did that knowing it would probably happen. Not everyone is honest with you all the time. The photos were a package to one person but you don’t know this person’s heart and nature, and unfortunately that happened. But it was a learning experience. So we do photos now, but only to the right people and the right way.”
The unpleasant surprise, however, was preceded by a big fat cheque. “I paid off my car and six or seven months of rent [in Las Vegas] in advance,” she said. “I haven’t even used the money of my last fight’s purse. I was able to pay my bills in Brazil, help my family and help Fernanda’s family with OnlyFans’ money. It’s nice when you check your account and see the money is still there. You’re like, ‘My God, I’m buying a lot of stuff on Amazon, my house is like a market right now, and the account remains the same. Even though the photos have leaked, it was only four or five photos.”
Andrade said she hadn't posted anything on OnlyFans of late as she's currently training for her flyweight bout with Cynthia Calvillo on September 25. It would be her first octagon appearance since losing to Valentina Shevchenko in a challenge for the UFC title. The MMA fighter said she was able to pay off her house in Brazil and also renoated her mother's house through earnings via the platform. “People think OnlyFans is just porn, but it’s not only that,” Andrade said. “It’s a platform to show your daily life, your fights, the things you do. I’m very happy with OnlyFans."
