A former Colorado police officer said she was fired after her coworkers and boss found out about her secret OnlyFans account. Now, those same people are asking for a discount on her naked photos, she said.
Melissa Williams, a 46-year-old woman from Colorado, made her first OnlyFans account in May 2020. She used it to share photos of herself and her husband, whose name was left out to protect his privacy. The mother of two worked for the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s office for 28 years. She also did work for OnlyFans as a way to get away from her stressful and sometimes dangerous job.
She said that when her coworkers and boss found out about her racy photos, they put her down, showed them to the whole office, and finally pushed her out of her role, which forced her to quit her job. Now, Melissa says, the same people who made fun of her side job are asking her if they can see some of her sexy photos for less money or even for free.
She says that the situation messed up her mental health and made her feel stressed and anxious. She went to a doctor and quit her job as a police officer on August 23, 2021, after the doctor told her not to go back to her old job.
She is now a full-time model for OnlyFans and makes $4,000 a month. She told Jam Press that she is “so much happier” now that she has a job.
Melissa and her husband had been making a good living by sharing pictures on OnlyFans under the name @the.real.bella.lexi.2 for 18 months. In August 2021, her boss found out about the secret thing she was doing because someone had told them about it.
Soon after, She said she got an official complaint by email, which made her “shocked and panicked” because “two parts of her life were coming together.” She then found out that a few of her coworkers had signed up for her page so they could “investigate her behavior,” and they had shared her pictures with everyone on the local police force and in the jail.
She told Jam Press, “The complaint came out of nowhere. I was shocked and scared because I never wanted these two parts of my life to meet.”
She says they are now being nice to her and sending her messages on Instagram. “I’ve seen messages on my Instagram from former male coworkers saying things like, ‘Oh, I was your favorite, can you send me something for free?'” she told Jam Press.
She said that people have asked her if she gives law enforcement a discount, and the answer is no. “I find it interesting that only a few of my coworkers reached out to me for help during all of this, and now some of the people who were talking about me and spreading rumors are asking for free photos and subscriptions.”
Her online followers have gone from 400 to 4,800 since she posted her story. Some of the messages she’s gotten have been negative, but she’s also gotten a lot of support from other police officers.
She said, “Other male coworkers have messaged me to say they didn’t have OnlyFans before, but they wanted to support me and told me to keep doing what I’m doing.”
A woman who worked with me sent me a note that said: “Just wanted to see how things are going. You were the best boss I ever had, and you’re still one of my law enforcement role models.”
“Another person told me that I was helping all women and that I shouldn’t let the bad things get to me.”
She said, “The amount of help has been amazing, and it means a lot. It has helped me realize that I’m not a bad person. I was so worried that everyone would find out, even though I didn’t want them to, but so much of it has been good.”
Her online page has done well, but she isn’t sure if she will keep it up for a long time. Her goal is to find another job in corporate security.
