V8 driver-turned-adult entertainer Renee Gracie has revealed she is quitting subscription site, OnlyFans.

‘I’ve got my very own website coming,’ she broadcast to her 695,000 followers.

Despite making close to $2 million in less than a year, Renee lashed out at OnlyFans calling the site a ‘poor platform’ and ‘unreliable’ for her fans.
‘[My website will be] a whole lot more reliable than OnlyFans!,’ she began.
‘I’ve paid them way too much commission for a poor platform that is unreliable and leaves my fans in the dark with lots of ongoing issues.’
OnlyFans is believed to take a cut of around 20 per cent from content creators, according to multiple reports.

Renee had a meteoric rise to fame when she joined the site and was believed to be on track to make nearly $2 million in the past year alone.
She once raked in $500,000 in a single month, off the back of a $5 monthly fee.
‘I do earn a reasonable income per month from OnlyFans. It’s more than what some people earn in a year,’ Renee told Daily Mail Australia in October.

The enormous amount of money is a far cry from her days as a penniless race car driver, which Renee spoke about in the same interview.
‘I wasn’t getting paid to race, not at all,’ she said.
Renee added that she ‘never even paid tax’ when she was a Supercars driver – meaning she was earning under the threshold of $18,200 per year.
‘That’s pretty much what I was earning. I was literally broke, living paycheck to paycheck. I wouldn’t have food or dinner, as I couldn’t afford to eat,’ she said.

Speaking about her decision to quit Supercars, Renee told Daily Mail Australia in a separate interview in July she ‘just couldn’t afford it anymore’.
‘I had to come up with $600,000 a year to race,’ she said. ‘I had to get my own sponsors and any crashes or scratches I got on the car I had to pay for myself.
‘We had insurance but the excess was so high that the team bosses used to tell me, ‘Don’t crash – but if you do, make sure you write it off.’ Just a minor crash could cost $10,000. It’s a savage sport.’

The decision to quit the platform may shock fans as Renee has previously stated she would be mentoring women starting out on the site.
‘I have coached a lot of girls now,’ Renee said in a YouTube video in June, while promoting her own ‘mentoring’ website for breaking into the porn industry.
‘I share all my tips and tricks, the games I play. I have themed days, I have really good ways for how to structure your page and be consistent with your pricing,’ she said.
