She launched her OnlyFans only weeks ago, with sources saying she hopes for a "big payday."

De Matteo, 51, has flashed her flesh in steamy shots on the online platform for fans willing to fork over $15 a month — more than 17 years after ending her six-season stint as Christopher Moltisanti's hard-nosed galpal Adriana La Cerva on the HBO gangland hit.

"It appears Drea's fallen on hard times, and this was a way for her to make some quick cash and raise her profile in the process," an insider shared.

De Matteo's provocative profile picture for the site shows her sitting on a mattress wearing nothing but boots, while a scantily clad gal lounges nearby on the floor.

"Drea smells a big payday after watching other OnlyFans stars rake in millions, and she wants to make a quick score," dished a spy, adding she misses the A-list Hollywood status she once had from the show.
