Mat.I became famous in June 2018 after posting a photo of the City of God film on her Instagram page, an account she opened in 2016. The Instagram star and social media influencer ventured into posting dance videos. The celebrity loved dancing and performing at a tender age. Like other celebrities, she has also tasted the bitter side of being a celebrity.
She got depressed and almost deleted her Instagram account because thousands of people bashed her for twerking and posting provocative images on social media. Masses associated the dance with prostitution. However, the young lady changed her mind and posted more videos and pictures. Rumours about her selling pornographic images of herself on Snapchat came out in 2019. Find details about the scandal below.

Mat.I exposed for selling pornographic images
A YouTuber named Luther !556 made a video in 2019 claiming Mat.I was a minor selling pornographic images of herself and asked people to report her. The video did not have the model's explicit photos to prove she sold the alleged indecent content on Snapchat; therefore, people rushed to the video's comments section to defend her. EG typed:
She doesn't sell them she just takes the money and doesn't reply afterward.
Luther ! 556's reply to EG's comment was:
She only recently started scamming these creeps and there are numerous instances when she did provide highly suggestive images and videos of herself. I did not want to put those messages (where you can see that she has provided them explicit images of herself) in this video because I don't want it to be taken down. I would also prefer not to go to prison.
The Mat.I Reddit's defamatory video did not receive much attention, compared to the YouTube video that got over 52k views. However, 85% of Reddit users who watched the video clicked the up-vote, meaning they liked or were startled by its content.
The truth behind the pornography allegations
Zachary Elliot, the photographer who took the alleged pornographic images of the young lady, posted an article explaining what happened during Mat.I mega shoot in Texas. He checked her Instagram and Twitter posts before contacting her via email in March 2019. Mat-I picked him among the many photographers who requested to work with her.
She agreed to a 7-hour-photoshoot of 12 different looks for $700. Zachary bought the trendy outfits she chose from Dolls Kill and shipped them to her. Mat.I's two friends accompanied her to the photoshoot venue in Houston. On the other hand, it was the California-based photographer's first time flying to meet a high-profile model.
Mr Elliot and the young model did not sign a release agreement because she was underage, which meant she needed parental consent to get into a legal contract. Mr Elliot decided to release the stunning videos and photos on Reddit in May 2019. At first, Mati.I objected to his idea but gave in after he agreed not to use her last name. The renowned photographer admitted that the young lady was professional throughout the photoshoot.
Interacting with the model showed him that her real-life character was the opposite of what people thought of her based on her social media photos. Zachary Elliot confessed that he also assumed it was troublesome before reaching out to her because of her social media images. After knowing Mati Marronii's actual side, he stated that he would love to work with her more in the future.
Mat.I advertises her "adult content" on Twitter. Her clients pay for her services via PayPal. Although conservative people do not support how she makes money, many people in developed countries that legalised pornography are comfortable with her hustle.
