Wizards Of Waverly Place star Dan Benson reveals how he began career in adult entertainment after his nude photos were spread online: ‘I decided to stop fighting against it’

Former Disney star Dan Benson has detailed how he entered the world of adult entertainment after nude photos of him were spread across the web without his consent.

Benson, 35, who played Zeke Beakerman on Wizards Of Waverly Place from 2007 to 2012, revealed he ‘leaned’ into an X-rated career after photos and videos he sent to women online were disseminated and nearly cost him his job.

At first, Benson attempted to scrub the photos off the web, but after struggling to do so, eventually decided to turn lemons into lemonade and become an adult entertainer himself. He now has an OnlyFans account and posts sexy snaps to his Instagram.

Benson discussed his journey into adult entertainment on his TikTok account on Saturday, and admitted it all began after he sent intimate photos to women with ulterior motives. 

‘Basically, when I was on the show Wizards Of Waverly Place, I would get messages from people all the time. Some of those being women that I found incredibly attractive,’ Benson told fans. 

‘Turns out, messaging those women who turned out not to be who they said they were was not the best idea, because I would send nude photos to them, and they would take those nude photos, and then post them onto online websites.’

Benson called learning his private images had become public ‘a pretty traumatic experience.’ He then began the ‘difficult task’ of attempting to take the photos down.

‘And quickly I learned that my nude photos and videos were all over the web. That was a pretty traumatic experience and for years I went about trying to get rid of them, trying to get them off the Internet, because obviously I did not want them out there, but as you can imagine that was a pretty difficult task.’

The images almost cost him a job he held after retiring from acting.  

‘Well, as it turns out, I ended up almost losing my job later in life because of that, after I kind of retired from acting, and it had a very big negative impact on my life.’
