Transgender reality star ‘humiliated’ after family found her OnlyFans page


A transgender reality star has revealed the awkward moment her family discovered she was an OnlyFans performer.

Gold Coast model Jolene Dawson, who is best known for appearing on E!’s Botched and Trial by Kyle, told her fans on Instagram this week that ‘doing OnlyFans is embarrassing but I’ll never stop’.

‘It’s embarrassing to have done those kinds of videos,’ the 26-year-old admitted.

‘It’s more just embarrassing knowing that… my family know obviously, and how they found out was embarrassing,’ she continued.

‘And I’m sure it’s embarrassing for them and I know that they probably don’t mention that to me, like those kinds of interactions they have with people about me, that maybe bring that up.’

Jolene said that while she found the whole experience of people finding out ‘humiliating’, she still ‘loved doing it’ and had no plans to stop.

‘I love doing it and it’s something that I’m good at,’ she explained.

‘It’s humiliating and embarrassing to admit that, only because of the stigma that comes with it from the history of how adult entertainers have been portrayed.

‘I’m so much more than that, but it’s also something that I don’t hate doing and it provides a lot of freedom in my life.’

She finished by admitting that she ‘doesn’t think she will stop’ doing OnlyFans, despite the embarrassment that comes with it.

On OnlyFans, Jolene bills herself as “the transgender Linda Lovelace” due to her skills in the bedroom. 

Prior to joining the adult subscription service, Jolene worked at a marketing firm.

However, she was sensationally sacked in 2020 after a video of her crying after being rejected for a spot on Big Brother went viral.

The rambling 11-minute video raged at TV producers for not picking her and instead opting for ‘generic people who everyone can relate to’.

Since it was posted to her YouTube channel, Jolene received dozens of abusive messages including death threats. 

Then when she came into work the next week, she was hauled into a meeting with her boss and human resources.

‘My boss said to me, you need to decide if you want to have a corporate job or be an internet meme, but it’s too late for us,’ Jolene told Daily Mail Australia at the time.

‘If our clients Google you, all this stuff is going to come up like you crying about not getting on Big Brother and it will be damaging to the business. You have a job so I don’t know why you need another.’

Golden Edge then pulled down its website and disconnected its phone, and claimed Jolene’s video forced it to close.

‘Due to Jolene’s embarrassing YouTube videos we lost multiple clients and have temporarily closed down,’ director Angela Summors said.

‘Most clients [that left] said it was due to her videos.’

Jolene, who managed ads and social media and built websites for the firm’s small business clients, said her dismissal was unfair.

‘It’s ridiculous, am I not allowed to have a personal life?’ she said.

‘I’m worried because with how the economy is now it’s not like I can just go and get another job.’
