A 47-year-old OnlyFans model makes $16,000 a month and fans tell her she looks like Princess Diana all the time


Lauren Spencer is a 47-year-old OnlyFans model and in the top 0.5% of earners on the platform.

She said her popularity on the site could be boiled down to her being a Princess Diana look-alike.

She makes around $16,000 a month and gets requests to role-play as Diana.

In less than two years, Lauren Spencer has broken into the top 0.5% of earners on OnlyFans, which she said is down to her resemblance to Princess Diana.

Before making the switch to content creation, she had owned a cleaning company with her husband for over 10 years, but when the pandemic hit, she saw her work dry up because of restrictions.

“We went from having a normal income to nothing overnight,” she told Insider. So she signed up for OnlyFans to earn money from home.

The 47-year-old had a side hustle doing webcam-modeling work, where viewers join a chatroom and pay to watch explicit content live. But with the cleaning business no longer operating, fans who said Spencer looks like Princess Diana suggested she try OnlyFans out.

“I often get comments from fans saying, ‘You remind me of her.’ Every time I’m told that, I’m flattered,” Spencer said.

The OnlyFans creator said that she will sometimes dress like Diana at her fans' request. Now she’s earning an average of $16,000 a month.

“When people ask me for custom movies, then I do that, but it’s not how I dress day-to-day,” she told Insider.

She customized a top and skirt to recreate Diana’s “revenge dress,” an off-the-shoulder black dress Diana wore to a 1994 event on the day her then-husband, King Charles, admitted to cheating on her.

The 47-year-old spends over 60 hours a week working as an OnlyFans model Lauren Spencer

She said she spends over 60 hours a week working as an OnlyFans creator, which translates to around nine hours a day, including on the weekends.

Spencer said the vast majority of her earnings come from subscriptions: “So far this month, I’ve made more than $16,000 and from that, around $15,350 is from subscriptions, and close to $725 is from tips.”

Her day involves responding to messages from subscribers in the morning, taking photos and videos, and doing livestreams on other platforms like Instagram and TikTok to market herself and attract new subscribers.

She learned to shoot, edit, and upload her own content using the iMovie video-editing app through trial and error.

“Promotion is the be all and end all, and social media is the primary method,” she said. She uses hashtags that are relevant for her target audience and comments on other creators' posts to boost her engagement.

Fans sometimes ask Spencer to pretend that they’re King Charles and ask her to tell them “naughty stories” about how she is cheating on them with the driver or with the butler, she said.

She says she does “tasteful nudity,” reads erotic stories, and likens her content style to “old-school tease.” She also offers fans up-close pictures for a subscription fee of $9.99 a month.

One fan even went as far as to send Spencer a picture of Diana with every message they sent her on OnlyFans, she said.

“The fact that I remind lots of people of Diana has definitely helped. It’s a kink for some to see someone like her, who is proper and decent, in underwear,” she said.

The pros of being a OnlyFans model “far outweigh” the cons for Spencer. “I think doing OnlyFans is sometimes portrayed as being a last stop for women who can’t do anything else or have no skills or are desperate, but that’s not true,” she said. “I love it. I have complete control over what content I put out.”

Spencer said her goal is to save enough money to open an animal sanctuary.

She said the downsides are that she’s now working longer hours, and that sometimes, people stigmatize sex work. “I have less time now than I did with the cleaning business, but I prefer this,” she said.

She loves not employing staff anymore, saying it “used to be the biggest bane of my life, as people would not turn up for work and problems would then escalate.”

“This is far more fun, it’s not physically taxing on my body and there’s no limit to how much I can earn,” Spencer said.

Lauren Spencer Smith, the 19-year-old singer songwriter from Vancouver Island, Canada, has returned with “Best Friend Breakup” from her forthcoming debut album.

The newest anthem is for a certain type of heartbreak — one that comes from the falling out of two best friends. Lauren’s impressive vocals are on full display while she sings about both a deeply personal and universally relatable experience.

With “Best Friend Breakup,” she continues her streak of sharing songs that make her fans feel understood; Lauren’s brand of music is like a hug from a friend at the time it’s needed most. To celebrate the release of “Best Friend Breakup,” Lauren will make her debut TV performance of the single on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, February 14.


Lauren had an impressive 2022 with nearly one billion global artist streams. “Fingers Crossed” catapulted her onto the charts and has earned her RIAA Platinum Certification. She followed “Fingers Crossed” with equally emotive pop ballads “Flowers,” and “Narcissist,” performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 2022 MTV VMAs, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, and more.

“Flowers” also earned RIAA Gold Certification. Lauren was nominated as a Best New Artist and performed at the People’s Choice Awards 2022 and Apple Music selected her as one of their “5 Breakthrough Artists Of 2022.” She has earned praise for her versatility, from both her powerhouse vocals to her detailed songwriting.

When she steps up to the microphone, the Vancouver Island singer and songwriter shares the kinds of stories typically only traded by best friends long after the sun goes down. Her unfiltered feelings resonate just as loudly as her stunning vocals do, tracing life’s ups, downs, and everything in between with sharp lyrics and even sharper melodies.

Lauren was honored with two 2023 JUNO Award nominations, Artist of the Year and Fan Choice, and will properly introduce herself on her forthcoming full-length debut album, to be released via Island Records/Republic Records.

Vancouver Island’s rising pop star Lauren Spencer-Smith just keeps on rising as she returns, again, for “Canada’s biggest night in music.”

The awards show, which will broadcast from Rogers Place arena in Edmonton on March 13, will see Spencer-Smith pitted against such prominent names as Michael Bublé, Shawn Mendes, The Weeknd, and Avril Lavigne.

Spencer-Smith will also be up for a TikTok Juno Fan Choice award in March, the winner of which will be determined by online votes – cast at either http://junofanchoice.ca or via Twitter using the hashtag #TTJFCLaurenSpencerSmith.

Spencer-Smith also performed at last year’s Junos in Toronto.

The pop star, originally from Port Alberni, first started gathering attention when, in 2020, she impressed judges of American Idol and claimed one of the top 20 spots in the singing competition.

In 2022 alone, not only have the singer’s singles continuously topped charts shortly after releasing, but she’s also appeared on network television performing for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2023.

Spencer-Smith’s upcoming single Best Friend Breakup will release Feb. 10 across multiple streaming platforms.

New Music Friday: Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Lauren Spencer-Smith, Madonna, Sophie B. Hawkins and more – WJJY 106.7


It’s Friday! Let’s see who’s out with new tunes …

Taylor Swift gave fans an early Valentine’s Day gift by releasing the Felix Jaehn remix of “Lavender Haze.” So, if you’ve been wishing for a dance club version of this song, Taylor heard you loud and clear.

Beyoncé is also giving fans an early V-Day gift in the form of a remix — she released a smooth new twist on her viral song “Cuff It — Wetter Remix.” She used that song to soundtrack a video celebrating her multiple Grammy wins.

Conversely, Lauren Spencer-Smith is not feeling the love with her new song, “Best Friend Breakup,” which is about two besties having a falling out and struggling with the conflicting emotions that come with it. Lauren will sing it live for the first time on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Valentine’s Day.

Madonna teamed with Canadian DJ BLOND:ISH for a new remix on her 2005 hit “Sorry.” The remix pitches down Madge’s signature vocals and amps up the thumping, house beat. The release comes shortly after Madonna announced her Celebration Tour, which will see her performing songs from her extensive catalogue.

Sophie B. Hawkins released “Better Off Without You,” which is a continuation of a popular song of hers from 1992. “I used to think ‘Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover,’ but now I realize I’m ‘Better Off Without You,'” she said in a cheeky statement.
