I'm sure many of you might already know of Mia Khalifa. She was once PornHub's highest rank adult star but there is a lot more to this 26 year old Lebanese. Mia Callista was born in Lebanon on 10 February 1993 and made the move to the US aged seven. After leaving the industry, Khalifa worked in Miami as a paralegal and bookkeeper and in recent years has transitioned into a career as a social media personality. Despite wearing a hijab in some of her films, she was raised as a Catholic, but no longer practices the faith.
In a recent interview, Mia has opened up about her adult career saying she only earned $12,000 (£9,950) throughout her brief time in the industry, which she was directly part of for three months.
In a tweet following the interview, Mia Said: "People think I'm racking in millions. Completely untrue. I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that". In a follow up comment, Mia does clarify that at no point was she promised she would earn millions and never expected that. She goes on to say that she is clarifying a common misconceptions about herself and about the industry as a whole.
Controversy with ISIS
After starring in a clip where she performed a sexual act whilst wearing a hijab, Mia admitted that she'd received death threats from terror group ISIS. She said that she was targeted by the group online with them threatening to behead her and sending her vile mocked-up images of her execution. This led to her leaving the adult industry, but she refused to let it ruin her life.
She said: "They photoshopped a picture of me being beheaded and threatened that that would happen to me.
It does worry me but I try not to show it, because you can't show weakness.
"That's exactly what they're looking for.
"I really try and just make it look like it rolls off, but I'll admit, it gets to you after a while."
Hockey puck boob incident
Mia Khalifa is a massive hockey fan but got a little too close to the action when she went to watch her team, the Washington Capitals, take on Tampa Bay Lightning. During the game, a player whacked a rubber disc at 80mph at her left boob, rupturing it in the process. She posted on Instagram: "I got hit in the boob with a puck during the game, and I'm 80% sure it ruptured an implant. But the good news is, I got a game used puck from a Capitals Stanley cup playoff game. Worth it."
