Cambage joined the adult entertainment website OnlyFans in November 2021.

She told The Herald Sun in November 2021 that she was 'scared' to make the move but was enticed by the money. "Every other girl is on OnlyFans at the moment, all the influencers, so I thought just do it," Cambage said.
She further noted that she was terrified of actually doing it. But her friends and family pushed her to take the step.

The news came after Cambage was chastised for a heated brawl with the Nigerian team during a pre-Olympics match. She got embroiled in a violent argument during an Opal's warm-up contest against Nigeria in Las Vegas in July 2021.

Cambage, who was forced to withdraw from the Tokyo Olympics because of mental health difficulties, revealed in a social media clip that "words were exchanged" and "things became hot" between her and members of the opposition squad.

Basketball Australia's inquiry of Cambage's pre-Games behavior has resulted in a formal reprimand, but no ban,. As a result, she may continue playing for her country.
