Bhad Bhabie, known for the ‘Cash Me Outside’ rap, has earned over $1million on OnlyFans, but experts are convinced she’ll ‘have regrets’ later on in life.
The teen, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, is sending fans exclusive photos and videos on the platform for $23.99 (£17).
But life coach Carole Ann Rice believes this exposure could eventually turn ‘sour’.
She told the Daily Star: “Considering the human brain doesn’t fully mature until we are in our 20s the actions of our youth can often lead to regret.
“The power of a newly discovered sexuality for a young woman is very intoxicating and the desire to seek admiration and use one’s attractiveness to garner attention almost irresistible.
“However – if this exposure turns sour and the attention becomes negative this could cause long lasting trauma and regret that will be hard to move away from.
“What we do in our youths today can have repercussions years later with future partners and job roles.”
The rapper’s followers have also been sharing their concern over her OnlyFans account.
One wrote: “That’s pretty disturbing to me considering you’ve just turned 18.”
Another added: “Baby, please. You’ve just turned 18 – this is weird.”
However, Bhad Bhabie replied by saying it’s ‘mad fun’.
“I’m having mad fun with this OnlyFans s***. The DMs on there are wild as f***,” she penned on Twitter.
Counsellor and founder of Let’s Stop Shouting Awareness Day, Yasmin Shaheen-Zaffar, also agrees there’s no harm with having an OnlyFans account and it’s ‘no different’ to any other social media platform.
The expert argued: “Like anything there are always different sides to a story.
“OnlyFans is no different when it comes to a social media platform effecting the mental health of those using the platform however young they start.
“Like any other platform and walk of life there will be success stories and there will be casualties.
“Importantly it is worth noting that research states a large number of mental health disorders begin by adolescence. So in my opinion what has driven a person onto OnlyFans in the first instance, their support system – or lack of it and their state of mental health when they begin their journey on the platform will be a crucial influence on the mental health of the individual, and their future.”
