Mia Khalifa left the porn industry years ago, but still remains one of the most-popular adult film stars of her time, ranking number two on Pornhub for most searched stars in 2018.
In a tweet posted to her account Monday night, she revealed she only made “a TOTAL of around $12,000” in the adult entertainment industry.
In an interview posted along with that tweet, Khalifa calls her transition out of porn “terrifying,” saying she ultimately left after infamous hijab scene back in 2014 garnered ISIS threats. She was still receiving those threats up until August 2018.
“The turning point, of course, was when I did the hijab scene,” she said. “That is when the ISIS death threats came in, all of the news broke out — globally. Not just in America. It was trending on Twitter, it was all over the news. I was banned from a handful of countries…Egypt…Afghanistan…Very Muslim countries were deeply offended by it — and I’m Catholic. So to me it wasn’t, ‘Oh yea, this is bad.’ What I actually said when they proposed the scene to me, and this is verbatim, was: ‘You motherf–kers are going to get me killed.’”
The 26-year-old now works as a sports presenter and is also engaged to be married.
