‘Sopranos’ Alum Says OnlyFans Paid Off Mortgage In Five Minutes

Sopranos alum Drea de Matteo has credited OnlyFans for being the reason she was able to pay off her mortgage in record time. For those who don't know, de Matteo played Adriana La Cerva in the first five seasons of the classic HBO show, and she even won an Emmy for her performance in 2004. The show recently celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2024, and the fanbase is huge. All of that allowed Drea to save her family and their home just eight months after joining the subscription-based website. Her bio simply states: "THE SOPORNOS ;-)" and a subscription to her page is $15 a month. https://www.instagram.com/p/C3k90NZRRCO/ She told the Daily Mail on Wednesday (February 28) that starting her OnlyFans account in August 2023 "saved us." At the time she joined, she only had ten dollars in the bank and was on the verge of losing her home. "They put me into foreclosure, and my house had flooded," de Matteo told the publication. She was quickly running out of options. She also took out a forbearance to help with mortgage payments, but she couldn't afford what she owed. On top of that, she said she was grieving the loss of one of her mothers while her other mother has dementia. Drea had no money for her mother's caregiver and just started uploading photos on OF. "It was like holy s---," she recalled, and was able to pay back the forbearance in just five minutes.

Drea says she hopes no one finds themselves in the position she was in and taking care of two little kids as well. She has a 16-year-old daughter named Alabama Gypsy Rose and 12-year-old son Waylon Albert "Blackjack," whom she shares with her ex, Shooter Jennings. Beyond saving her family home, Drea made enough money to finance a streetwear brand called ULTRAFREE, inspired by her son. It all came about because de Matteo was publicly sharing her anti-vaxxer stance, which she says cost her acting work in Hollywood. After getting blasted for her stance on the COVID-19 vaccines and mandates, de Matteo says when she joined OnlyFans, she got even more heat, and "it went f---ing viral and people went nuts." https://www.instagram.com/p/CxVih-JLWVH/ [select-listicle listicle_id="685484" syndication_name="top-earning-celebrities-on-onlyfans" description="yes"]
