‘Cocaine Cassie’ Sainsbury has quit OnlyFans after turning to the subscription-only website to sell racy photos of herself following her release from prison in Columbia.
Sainsbury, 26, spent three years in the South American country’s notorious El Buen Pastor prison after being convicted of smuggling 5.8kg of cocaine hidden inside headphones in April 2017.
She was released from custody last year to serve the remainder of her six-year sentence on parole in the Columbian capital Bogota due to jail overcrowding during the coronavirus pandemic.
The ex-Adelaide fitness trainer started sharing suggestive images of herself on OnlyFans to fund her life after prison, but said using the platform had left her feeling ‘uncomfortable’.

‘I was on OnlyFans but it wasn’t ever anything fully explicit,’ the 26-year-old told KIIS FM’s Kyle & Jackie O show on Wednesday.
She replied simply ‘yes’ when asked by host Kyle Sandilands whether her content was ‘naughty, suggestive but nothing gross’.
‘I didn’t feel comfortable,’ Sainsbury said.
She turned to OnlyFans as she was unable to work in Bogata due to visa complications.
In February, she posted a photo of her in lacy white underwear to her Instagram on Friday with a link to the site.
The 25-year-old was charging subscribers $39.99 a month to check out her sultry snaps.
She has so far shared two photos to the account with a caption reading: ‘What happens next?’ with a winky emoji.
Sainsbury had earlier shot down rumours she was paid cash by men in Australia in exchange for semi-naked pictures while on parole.
Photos surfaced in August appearing to show the South Australian lying on a bed wearing lacy underwear and showing her distinctive stomach tattoo.

A media report claimed Sainsbury has been making $400 a week from a man who she sends explicit photos to and included an online exchange between the pair.
‘Well I’m happy with the amount you offered, like I’m not the sort of person to be like, no that’s not enough give me more,’ she wrote to the man, according to the Courier Mail.
She also wrote: ‘How do I know that you sent the money?’ and explained the photo could be verified by her Facebook profile picture.

But a week later, Sainsbury denied being paid for any photos during an interview with Brisbane radio station B105.
‘It actually didn’t go down the way it has come out in the media. I did not receive any money at all for any photo,’ Sainsbury said.
She was then asked by hosts Stav, Matt, and Abby if she had set up an account on adult site OnlyFans where users are paid for racy content.
‘I had never even heard of this page until I got a whole heap of messages from people saying ‘What’s your OnlyFans ID?’ And I was like ‘What? What is that?’ Sainsbury replied.
She also revealed she had ended her engagement to fellow inmate Joli Pico, 29, from Venezuela after a nine month romance behind bars.
Pico, who is still serving her sentence for theft in Columbia, had moved on with another inmate, according to Sainsbury.
‘Unfortunately things with Joli, they didn’t last. I came out of prison and then she became a different person, and she got with somebody else inside as well.’
When asked if her former girlfriend had cheated on her she replied it was ‘difficult’ and had her doubts about whether the relationship would last once one of them was on the outside.
Sainsbury spent three years locked up in the notorious El Buen Pastor prison in Colombia after being convicted for smuggling 5.8kg of cocaine hidden inside headphones in April 2017. She is pictured attending a court hearing in Bogota on August 9, 2017

Of her relationship with fellow inmate Pico, the South Australian had previously said she had not expected it.
‘Honestly, it was the least thing that I expected to find in prison,’ she told 60 Minutes in April.
‘It started as a friendship and then out of nowhere it just turned into a relationship.’
The pair were together for nine months before Pico – who is serving time for theft – proposed to Sainsbury in front of their cell mates late last year.
