Renee Gracie has opened up about her X-rated career change, insisting she’s “not a sexual person” despite what she posts online.

The former Supercars driver shocked the motorsport world earlier this year when she announced she’d started an OnlyFans account where she charges subscribers for X-rated content.

The 25-year-old has made as much as $500,000 a month in her new career.

However Gracie has now admitted the content she posts online is “all just fake” and she’s not really as sexual as she appears online.

Speaking to Grant and Chezzi Denyer on their ‘It’s all true?’ podcast this week, Gracie said: “People think I am the horniest thing in the world.

“It’s so far from the truth.

“I am with my partner, but in general... It’s all just fake. It’s put on.”

Gracie said she only makes explicit content with her boyfriend, saying: “It’s what we do anyway”.

The former driver said she holds no regrets about her new career, saying the lucrative switch has set her up for life.

“The position I am in now has set me up for life. I'm setting myself up for an early retirement,” she said.

“I cannot regret bettering myself and putting myself in that position.”

Renee Gracie slams Supercars’ ‘sex sells’ approach

Over the weekend Gracie took aim at Supercars officials, lifting the lid on her time in and around the sport.’

Gracie told the Daily Telegraph she felt the sport’s attempts to promote women were hollow, given it still relies heavily on the “sex sells” aspect of advertising.

She also slammed the fact that Supercars has distanced themselves from her since she switch to adult entertainment.

“For years I raced in development series and Supercars wanted to promote that I was a woman racing,” she said.

“I was this ‘sex sells’ figure. They wanted to benefit from it.

“Now I’m in the industry I am, and I’ve made the change, they want nothing to do with it.”

Gracie and Simona De Silvestro raced in the Bathurst 1000 twice, placing 21st in 2015 and 14th in 2016.

De Silvestro remained in Supercars until 2019, before switching to GT racing in Europe.

There haven’t been any female drivers since, and Gracie is not convinced Supercars is doing what it should to get more women on the grid.

“They claim to promote women. They push it. They want a female so bad, but at the same time, they don’t really,” she said.

“There are people in Supercars with old school mentalities. It’s 2020 some things have to change.

“It’s a tough industry for women, and I don’t think we will see a female driver for a long time.”

Supercars officials moved to distance the sport from Gracie earlier this year.

“Supercars is aware of the article regarding former Super2 driver Renee Gracie,’’ a spokesman said.

“As Ms Gracie is no longer competing in Super2, Supercars will not be commenting further.”
