Nikita Dragun proudly launched an OnlyFans as a trans woman following the controversial arrest where she said she was held in a men's jail

  • Nikita Dragun has returned to social media with aplomb following her November arrest, when her reps said she was held in the men's unit of a Florida jail.

  • "Proud to say that yes I have a dick," she wrote in a teaser for her new OnlyFans account that was widely lauded.

  • The announcement was met with glowing support from fans and fellow creators.

Beauty influencer Nikita Dragun, who has remained tight-lipped on social media since her arrest in November for felony assault, has returned to the internet with aplomb.

Dragun unveiled a new OnlyFans account in a slickly-produced teaser video on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday. "Proud to say that YES i have a dick, YES i just launched an onlyfans, and YES i'm going to show it," she captioned the posts.

An accompanying video sees Dragun wearing leather chaps with "OnlyFans" emblazoned on the back in crystals, approaching a line of urinals in a restroom. Dragun unzips and glances over at two patrons on either side of her before telling them, "Mine's bigger."

Several high-profile figures applauded the announcement. "Get ready to make 1 mill your first 48 hours," wrote fellow OnlyFans model Abigal Ratchford on Instagram, while model Winnie Harlow simply commented, "Sickening."

Subscriptions to her account start at $24 a month. "Never thought I would do this on the internet," one of the paywalled posts reads. "Lowkey excited."

Dragun was a pivotal member of YouTube's beauty community, where she then parlayed her fame onto TikTok as a member of The Hype House. She is also the owner of the cosmetics brand Dragun Beauty, though no products are currently available for sale on the brand's website.

The announcement marks Dragun's first posts on social media since November, when she was arrested for felony assault on a police officer in Florida. At the time, her reps told Insider she was held in a men's jail unit, a fact she echoed during an appearance in bond court, when she tearfully asked the judge, "Do I have to stay here in the men's unit still?"

The Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department disputed this account. "Inmate Dragun never made it beyond the booking process prior to release; therefore, she was never placed in a men's unit," the institution claimed in a statement.

In recent years, Dragun has been open about her mental health struggles. In 2021 she was involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital for eight days after being picked up by police on Thanksgiving in her home state of Virginia. "There is never any shame in facing struggles with your mental health. Please know that you are not alone," she wrote in Instagram Stories at the time.

Insider has reached out to Dragun and her reps for comment.
