After she turned 16, she distributed babysitting leaflets to her neighbours. As a nanny, she has worked for several families in her area.
How did she become famous?
When Delphine was 14 years old, she began posting photographs of her cosplay on her Facebook page. After she turned the follower option on, the page grew rapidly.
Over the course of the subsequent 2-3 years, she had accumulated over 100,000 followers. During this period, her followers were predominantly girls.
A few years later, she purchased a campervan and spent a month traveling around France. When she finally returned, she did not know what to do with her life.

In 2018, Belle launched a Patreon which offers patrons access to regular, exclusive, and raunchy content, including access to her premium Snapchat, for prices ranging from $5 (£3.82) to $2,500 (£1911.06) a month.

This water is not for drinking and should only be used for sentimental purposes.
