Who is Belle Delphine?
There isn’t much known about the early life of Belle Delphine. However, what we do know is the e-girl was born Mary-Belle Kirschner in South Africa on 23rd of October, 1999. She moved to the UK to attend Priestlands School in Lymington. She dropped out of school at 14 years of age and supported herself doing odd jobs as a waitress, nanny and barista.
This was also when she started posting cosplay photos on her Facebook page, which is now deleted. In the few years that followed her online following grew to 100,000. Having no desire to work conventional jobs and lacking formal degrees, she decided use her online fame to her advantage, leveraging it to make a career. At 18 she moved to Instagram where her she began posting NSFW photos.
Belle Delphine’s rise
In 2015 Belle Delphine posted her first video on Youtube which was a makeup tutorial. Gaining more and more followers, in 2018 she launched a Patreon granting access to regular, exclusive and raunchy content – along with access to her Sanpchat premium. Prices ranged from $5 to $2,500 a month. Her popularity spiked in autumn of 2018. She joined TikTok and went to the top of the “For You” page very swiftly by doing several TikTok challenges.
Soon she was seen all over 4chan and Reddit helping her attract a lot of gamer boys getting a kick out of her content – her ‘performance art’.
What is Belle Delphine famous for?
The 20-year-old has pulled several strange publicity stunts to grow her brand. Some of them include cosplaying as Bowsette, eating photographs of her followers and internet personalities, eating raw eggs and – wait for it – hanging out with a dead octopus. That’s right… Delphine shared a video on her Youtube channel hanging out with a dead octopus, her ‘best friend, with googly-eyes attached to it too.
Initially she drew influences from gaming and anime and pulled ahegao faces when she first joined Instagram. In 2019 the social media platform terminated Delphine’s account citing that she was in violation of Community Guidelines – supposedly there were reports of her posts carrying nudity and pornography. Her TikTok account was also removed after which Belle went M.I.A. She stopped making content for Patreon too which led to fans speculating on her disappearance. Rumours were spread that she may have gotten pregnant or worse she may have died. The truth, according to an interview with Vice, was that she just wanted “to take a breath of fresh air.”

Titled “I’m back – Belle Delphine”, it received over 14 million views within a week. The video doubled up as an announcement to promote her revised Instagram and TikTok accounts along with her new OnlyFans account.
She also trolled her fans by saying she would create her own Pornhub channel if one of her pictures got over a million likes – it gained almost double that amount. Keeping her word, the gamer set up her account with the porn platform.
The first video she posted was titled Belle ‘Delphine strokes two BIG cocks’ which may have disappointed fans who expected to see her actually doing pornography. Instead, the video showed Belle sitting on a bed playing with two stuffed cockerels. Other videos included “Belle Delphine plays with her PUSSY” and “Belle Delphine gets HUGE LOAD blown on her”. Of course it was just more trolling, the videos showed her petting a stuffed cat and dropping Mentos into a bottle of Coca-Cola.
The stunt gained her several more followers on her social media handles and Patreon. Less than a month later Delphine pulled a move – troll and business move – that took her to a new levels of notoriety.
Belle Delphine sells ‘gamer girl bathwater’
In July of 2019 Belle Delphine shared a short video on Instagram saying “Rise up, gamer boys. It’s time to get your gamer girl bath water.” Believe it or not, the jars, priced $30 a piece, sold out in two days!

Talking to Metro, she said, “There is a joke in the community among gamers where they will comment on a post saying ‘let me drink your bath water’ and although it’s a joke I just kind of found the idea of turning it into a reality and actually letting people own my bath water funny.”
Belle managed to sell over 500 bottles of bathwater in two days. Fanatics that bought the jars used it to post videos of themselves vaping with it, cooking mac and cheese with it and drinking it. Some people even bought the bottles as gifts for their friends. The jars also appeared on eBay auctioning up to $15,000 a pop.
Whether the whole ordeal of selling out bathwater is real or not, it was a good publicity move – if not a business one. Several Youtubers, who may not have believed in the authenticity of the thing have used it for their own gain as well.
Anyway, while people may love, debate and/or judge the young cosplay model, we’d just like to remind you that her net worth, reportedly, is now about $300,000. And while she is not sure of plans for the future, she sure is looking for new stunts and gimmicks to keep her followers entertained. Can the bathwater sell out be topped though? If it can, rest assured Belle will find a way.
