- ‘My dignity was sold for $12.99.’
A Brazilian tourist is awaiting sentencing after secretly filming sex with his ex-boyfriend and selling the video on OnlyFans.
Instagram star Fabricio Da Silva Claudino met his victim in Brazil last year. He came to live in Australia but the pair broke up after five months.
What his ex-boyfriend didn’t know is that Da Silva Claudino had secretly filmed them having sex at home in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville.
After the pair broke up, the Brazilian former flight attendant stayed in Australia. He made a living by working as a nude model and running an explicit OnlyFans account.
But he uploaded the four-minute sex video and nude photos of his ex to OnlyFans. And he then promoted the content to 130,000 social media followers.
‘I was made to look cheap’
This week his ex-partner told Downing Centre Court in Sydney about his ordeal.
He said he thought 32-year-old Da Silva Claudino was the ‘man of his dreams’ when they met in Rio de Janeiro.
But the discovery of his ex’s revenge porn had left him sleepless and ‘afraid of the outside world’.
He said: ‘My dignity was sold for $12.99. This was sexual exploitation… this was domestic violence.
‘My image was taken and rebranded. I knew that wasn’t me, but I was made to look cheap, and I started to believe that maybe I was.
‘My face became nothing more than a promotional tool. My tattoos, which I used to wear proudly, now feel like branding. I felt guilty, I felt dirty… I lost my identity forever.’
He now wants to get his tattoos lasered off.
Police arrested Da Silva Claudino in September last year and he admitted the offenses in court this week.
He also pleaded guilty earlier this year to 15 other charges from the time he was on bail. Police say he filmed himself masturbating in public spaces, including in view of a school, on a bus and in a park.
Moreover, he pleaded guilty to one charge of possessing anabolic steroids.
The court will sentence him on 18 September. Australia will likely deport him back to Brazil after he has served any sentence.
