Paige Neimann, as Ariana Grande fans are known, is being called out for allegedly profiting as an Ariana Grande impersonator.
The move came after Neimann, who recently turned 18, created an account on OnlyFans, an internet content subscription service primarily used by pornographers.
Fans of the GRAMMY-winning artist have blasted the impersonator for creating content while dressed up as Ariana Grande.
On Twitter, debates rage as some users question Neimann’s decision to create an OnlyFans account without claiming that she is using Grande as bait.
Page Neimann, a well-known impersonator, has taken over TikTok with her striking resemblance to Ariana Grande, posting skits reenacting the singer’s dialogue and scenes from “Victorious.”
As her name spread across social media, the real Ariana Grande caught wind of it and saw how the content creator was cosplaying her.
However, Ariana’s reaction was not exactly what Neimann had hoped for.
Ariana has stated numerous times, including in a now-deleted tweet, that she dislikes her “Victorious” kooky character Cat Valentine. Even though the character is what first brought her to prominence, Grande has grown estranged from him.
Ariana stated at the time:
“i just wonder whyyyy the cat voice / dialogue. i am sure she is the sweetest sweet sweetheart forreal !! but it’s definitley bizarre seeing people blend the two worlds lmao.”
The conversation between Neimann and Grande was not particularly good, as Neimann jokingly teased the singer as a “liar,” which the singer did not appreciate.
Years later, Neimann continued to impersonate and cosplay Ariana Grande, but shifted away from the Cat Valentine persona and toward more of the singer’s current appearances.
The resemblance between the two is still uncanny and eerily similar, and some people couldn’t tell the two photos apart.
Now, Neimann has created an account on OnlyFans, which many speculated was a platform from which the impersonator could profit by posting sexually explicit photos of herself while using the Ariana Grande persona to entice subscribers.
Fans are outraged by Neimann’s decision to create the subscription-based profile.
Others are unsure, noting that it is a personal preference because Ariana Grande cannot “trademark” her face.
Ariana Grande has not responded to the situation, as her Twitter account remains inactive. Her Instagram account has also remained silent on the subject.
