Jordan Belfort launches OnlyFans following release from prison.

Jordan Belfort, the real ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, has joined OnlyFans. 

Belfort, 59, took to the platform’s Instagram page to announce that he has launched an account in order to show fans exclusive behind-the-scene footage of his ‘freakin’ cool as hell life’.

According to Belfort’s instagram page, this includes playing golf, attending events on yachts, and hanging out with rappers like Drake.

OnlyFans is a platform that allows fans to receive exclusive content from their favorite creators via monthly subscription or one-off payments.

Belfort rose to global fame after being portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2012 Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street. The hit film chronicled Belfort’s tumultuous rise and fall, depicting his foray into scam artistry, adultery, and drug abuse.

In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most successful sales companies on Wall Street with involvement in stocks totaling over $1 billion.

The company, Stratton Oakmont, marketed minimal-value penny stocks and lured investors with a “pump and dump” scheme, which allowed the company to pocket large commissions on trades.

In 2003, Belfort was sentenced to four years in prison for fraud and money laundering. He only served 22 months and agreed to give 50 percent of any and all future earnings to the government to pay off a $110 million restitution.

The former stock trader is sober and now works as a business consultant and motivational speaker. Belfort is still obligated to pay a minimum of $10,000 per month in restitutions to former Stratton Oakmont clients.

His arrival to OnlyFans comes as the platform made headlines after announcing it would no longer allow sexually explicit content to be posted on the site. The platform rescinded this announcement and apologized, but still appears to be going forward with a rebrand.
