Ex-Adult Star Mia Khalifa Claims She Made Only $12K Doing Porn

Ex-Adult Star Mia Khalifa Claims She Made Only $12K Doing PornEx-adult star Mia Khalifa tweeted Monday that she only made about $12,000 in total during the three months that she worked in the porn industry, <i>The</i> <i>New York Post</i> reports. “People think I’m racking in millions from porn,” Khalifa wrote. “I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that. Difficulty finding a normal job after quitting porn was… scary.” The Lebanese native was still ranked No. 2 on Pornhub for most searched stars in 2018, according to <i>VICE</i>. “I was involved in porn so briefly, but my actions spread like wildfire, and I continue to be ranked (truly baffles me) 5 years after leaving the industry. This is why people think I still perform.” Khalifa, who now works as a sports presenter, also included a link to a YouTube video interview in her post, which shows her discussing her story with Megan Abbott. In the interview, Khalifa called leaving the industry “terrifying,” and detailed death threats she received from ISIS after doing a sex scene wearing a hijab. “To clarify, I was never promised ‘millions’, nor do I expect it,” Khalifa said. “I’m just clarifying common misconceptions about me, and in turn, about the industry.”https://nypost.com/2019/08/12/mia-khalifa-claims-she-made-only-12k-doing-porn/
