A woman with a large following on the adult content website, OnlyFans, is suing her boyfriend and former business partner for $6.3 billion, for allegedly taking control of her social media accounts and exploiting the explicit content without her consent.
Mikayla Saravia is a glamor model whose claim to fame is an abnormally long tongue.
Saravia, 25, from Cooper City in Florida claims Nicholas Hunter, 27, aka ‘Nick Yardy’, seized her OnlyFans and Twitter accounts after they ended relationship late last year.
OnlyFans model Saravia, and Hunter her business manager, had been in a volatile relationship over a five-year period that appears to have ended in October, 2022, according to court records.
In a lawsuit filed in federal court this week, Saravia alleges that Hunter changed the passwords on her Twitter and OnlyFans accounts, then started posting graphic images and videos without her consent.
She has two accounts on OnlyFans, one that may be viewed for free and a more “explicit” one that is accessible for $30 a month, according to the paper.
Hunter allegedly seized the paid account, according to the lawsuit.
“For months, Defendant’s conduct continued,” wrote Saravia’s lawyer, Joseph DiRuzzo, who accused Hunter of selling an X-rated video of Saravia for $35 and images for $10 and $13 in January, among other allegations.
“Defendant used the Only Fans account to sell sexually explicit videos and images of the plaintiff based on material he had amassed prior to the severance of their business and personal relationship,” he added in his filing.
Saravia’s Instagram and Twitter accounts, which promote her OnlyFans content, have over 8 million and 655,000 followers, respectively.
DiRuzzo acknowledged that Saravia had posted explicit content before the couple’s breakup, but said that in those cases she was in control of the material she released.
“Just because you consented to an image in the past, it does not mean you’re giving someone permission to post additional content without your consent,” he said.
The lawsuit seeks damages of $10,000 for each of the 628,000 followers she had in October, when the relationship ended.
Hunter was identified in the lawsuit as being in business with Saravia, which was listed as KKVSH, LLC. The pair also produced YouTube videos together.
According to a Yahoo Finance interview in September 2020, Hunter is an entrepreneur known as Nick Yardy. A music producer, record label owner and artist manager who prided himself on his knack for identifying undiscovered talent. His most significant client success story at the time was Saravia.
Hunter managed their jointly owned company KKVSH, and ‘successfully grew her account through his innovative growth strategies from a mere 1,000 fans to nearly 5 million.’
However, the suit alleges, Hunter exceeded his authorized access to Saravia’s electronic devices after the couple broke up.
The lawsuit also mentioned that Hunter and Saravia are also involved in a civil domestic violence case in Broward County, Florida.
Saravia previously made headlines in 2019, for making more than $100,000 a year with her 6 1/2 inch long tongue on Instagram, where she had 2 million followers at the time.
