’90 Day Fiancé’: Brittany Banks Breaks Down Why She Overhauled Her Instagram
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way has quite the rotation of couples with relationship challenges, and Brittany and Yazan are no exception. On the show, they have been defending their international union to their families, but are butting heads about cultural differences.
Off camera, fans are keeping an eye on Brittany’s social media accounts for clues about her and Yazan’s romance, and noticed something was different.
Brittany’s profession includes model, influencer, rapper
One of the things Brittany is known for is leveraging her social media presence for her career. Even before 90 Day Fiancé put the spotlight on her life, she had well over 300,000 Instagram followers. She considers herself an influencer, model, and aspiring rapper, with the latter being one of her passions.
As fans know, on the show, Brittany and Yazan have friction because of her lifestyle, which clashes with the conservative ways of his Muslim family in Jordan.
Brittany’s social media drama
Earlier this month, fans noticed Brittany deleted a heap of photos from Instagram and shut her account down. It’s back up now, but she aroused questions and suspicions in the 90 Day Fiancé fan base. Why?
The timing of it came after viewers discovered she had two OnlyFans accounts. OnlyFans is an app where users can sell access to their NSFW photos, videos, or personal time with subscribers.
According to Starcasm, she deleted her Instagram after the OnlyFans information went public, leading some to believe she did it out of embarrassment, fan criticism, or to please Yazan and his relatives.
Brittany was also accused of buying fake followers for Instagram, but wholly denied it.
Brittany says mentor inspired her to flip her Instagram
During a virtual interview with PeopleTV, Brittany spoke to host Daryn Carp about her relationship with Yazan, her decision to visit Jordan, and the ultimate: the reason she cleaned out her Instagram account.
Carp was forthright and told Brittany everyone was speculating about her social media sweep and asked her the meaning of it. Brittany said it was all about rebranding.
Before I got into the show I rebranded my Instagram. I was rebranding because I have a mentor and my mentor, she is a very strong businesswoman and she was pushing me to kind of like, change my life around. She was showing me the ropes about starting businesses and all these things and she, you know, did the same thing for her life and just — I’m following in her footsteps.
I just decided to clean all that stuff up and kind of start doing things a different way and I’ve been loving it ever since.
Brittany added that she does not knock her old hustle and loves for women to do whatever they want unapologetically, and wanted to reiterate she’s headed in a new direction.
The Florida native also said she plans to put out more music in the future, and fans are welcome to listen to it if they are interested. Watch Brittany on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way on TLC each Monday at 9 p.m. EST.
