From X Factor Reject To LA Princess

At just 23, Chloe Khan's life is like something out of a Hollywood movie - from a working class upbringing in Wakefield to a life most can only dream of.

Branded 'queen of the chavs' four years ago after being ripped to shreds on X Factor by Simon Cowell, Chloe has had the last laugh now earning more than most professional pop stars.

She says: 'I knew there was a different life out there. I didn't know how to get it, but I just knew I wanted it.'

From fast cars to photo-shoots, the model now leads a glamorous life in sunny LA. But just five years ago, her life was very different.

At 19, then known as Chloe Mafia, she was kicked off British X Factor and got headlines for all the wrong reasons in the tabloids. Rather than wallow, she decided to re-invent herself.

She made the controversial decision to become a webcam model, performing for paying customers earning six-figure sums. She then went on to set up her own webcam modelling company.

'When I want something 100 per cent, I really go for it. I focused a lot of energy, time and commitment into it the webcam company,' she says.

Her income has now allowed her to leave chilly Yorkshire behind her for the bright lights of California.

'People are surprised by my transformation, but I didn't just wake up from a chavvy clown to LA princess. It's been a long journey.'

Last year she married John Gray, head of strip club chain Spearmint Rhino, who made her the face of the brand.
