A racy model who was homeless on four separate occasions is now a millionaire after a trip to a strip club inspired her to start getting her kit off.
Italia Tornabene, who goes by the stage name Brianna Dymond, says despite the rough journey getting to where she is today, she wouldn't have it any other way. The 37-year-old says her resilience and determination is what has made her such a success.
Brianna became a mother at 17, and was homeless living on Skid Row not long after that, when she left her ex-husband. She lived in cars multiple times and, despite having degrees, she struggled to make ends meet.

However the stunner, who lives in Los Angeles, US, says a trip to a strip club one day changed everything, and she hasn't looked back since.
Talking exclusively to the Daily Star, Brianna said she first decided she needed to make more money when her ex-husband's relative tried to take her to court for custody of her son.
And a run-in with a friend at a strip club set her off on a new career path.
She said: "I had to get my s**t together really quick and I didn't have time to wait two weeks for a pay cheque or to wait a week for my application to go through. A girl that I knew was dancing at that strip club. I made $200 in a day, back then that was a lot of money to me. That was three days work for me.
"So I did that to get an attorney and to get out of that rut."
That club proved to be a stop-gap and after a stint working at a car dealership, she eventually landed a job with the US government. The pay however wasn't great, so she decided to keep dancing on and off, alongside her job.
"I realised I was miserable working for the government," she said. "Here I am telling my son go to college and worry about his grades, but yet we're struggling.
"So I did my 10 years and then I quit and I decided to just go into dancing full time because I was making more on a weekend than I was in two months of my job.
"And that was my journey into the sex industry for good."
Even then, however, everything wasn't simple. She suffered a crushed foot, a bad back, and a near-death experience with sepsis, all of which caused her to miss out on dancing – and the money that came with it.
"I went online and I found this app called Sex Panther and it was where I started to build a profile," she said.
"I was making a thousand dollars a day on Sex Panther and I said, 'I'm never going back to dancing again'.
"Here I found this platform where I could do it with my crushed foot and my bad back. Being on the computer all day really took me down a rabbit hole, and I realized that the top-earning people on these websites were working from home or were porn stars."
She already had an OnlyFans platform she wasn't utilising, but her revelation saw her sign on with a modelling agency and adult companies.
Brianna now posts to 33 different platforms worldwide – including the Playboy Centrefold website, ManyVids and Fansly.
"If I get $1,000 a month from all 33 websites. that's $33,000 and I'm barely doing anything," she said.
Brianna says she's investing the profits from the websites for her and her son's future.
"I’ve bought gold, land, art, bonds, stocks, and invested in marketing my brand," she said.
"I am building my future for my son and I, so I have residuals coming in."
She added: "The best part about this isn't the money, it's the lack of stress. I'm no longer stressing about having a roof over my head. Am I going to get evicted? What do we have for groceries?
"I don't think I've looked at a price tag in a long time, and that feels good. It feels good to not be in debt, it feels good to be able to travel where I want and do what I want to.
"I'm very grateful for everything that's happened in my life and everybody in my life who's helped."
With her wealth of experience, Brianna is now ready to inspire and empower others to pursue their paths to success with her bookSuits to Stilettos.
She says the book takes the reader through her life to the present day, and hopes they will find it life-affirming.
"You may hit rock bottom right now, but it's not over. I felt like I had struggled so much to get where I was just to lose it all over again.
"But I really want to inspire women that want to get away from relationships. People that have hit rock bottom and feel like there's nowhere left to go.
"Our journey. will lead us somewhere where you won't even expect it to. The journey of life is beautiful, you just have to embrace it, deal with the challenges, and keep going. Just trust the process."
