Mia Khalifa became an overnight internet sensation when she appeared in an adult movie in October 2014. She has since become one of the world’s most popular adult film stars of the industry. Mia has also become one of the most searched names on the adult video site Pornhub. Now, she’s leaving that world as she reinvents herself.
According to a new report, Mia Khalifa revealed that she is leaving the adult entertainment industry behind at the young age of 23. Instead, she wants to shift her focus on promoting sports teams. Khalifa wants to leave her past behind since becoming the most popular topic on social media and search engine sites.
Khalifa only had one year of experience in the adult film industry since she started acting. But it’s something that she doesn’t want to be involved with anymore. Instead, Khalifa said that she wants to improve her image and escape from her past.
She’s still teetering in the adult entertainment industry though by hosting live chat sessions on the adult chat site Camster, where she sometimes performs for a certain goal. Khalifa also has an Amazon wishlist that allows her fans to buy her gifts.
Earlier this month, she revealed that she doesn’t like her big breasts. In a new video for The Berry, Khalifa said that having huge breasts is a huge bummer during the hot summer months because of the uncomfortable clothes and sweat underneath her breasts. Check out Khalifa’s explanation in the video below.
Mia Khalifa is a 23-year-old native of Beirut, Lebanon. The adult film star and model received backlash and death threats when she appeared in an adult video that featured her performing various sex acts while wearing a burqa. Although Khalifa has resided in the U.S. since she was a teenager, her career in adult entertainment has received criticism in the Middle East ever since she entered the industry in 2014.
But Khalifa claims that she is not a Muslim, contrary to the rumors. Khalifa was born in 1993 to a Catholic family and they moved to the U.S. in 2000. Though she comes from a Christian Lebanese family, she does not practice the faith due to obvious reasons.
The backlash against Khalifa only increased as she became Pornhub’s most-searched adult film star. Ironically, a recent Google study found that six out of the 10 countries that search sex-related terms were from the Middle East. Khalifa has taken the threats and criticisms by becoming one of the snarkiest and sassiest social media stars. Her witty comebacks have even earned her some new followers and fans.

Khalifa now has over 66,000 followers on Twitter and over 68,000 followers on Instagram. She uses the social media sites to communicate with her fans, advertise her live chat shows, and talk about her love of sports. But according to the Master Herald, becoming a social media fixture, tabloid topic, and sports fan has not helped her rake in the money.
She is often tight-lipped when it comes to her personal life. According to online rumors, Khalifa married her boyfriend when she turned 18 years old. It is not clear if Khalifa is still married or if she is divorced because of her past work in the adult industry. Khalifa hardly talks about her personal life on her social media accounts.
Despite having left the adult entertainment industry over a year ago, according to AskMen, Khalifa continues to be the second-most popular actress on Pornhub. She has been knocked off her throne since fellow Pornhub actress Lisa Ann became the most popular adult actress on the site. Lisa Ann is a radio personality and also a former adult film actress who retired in 1997 after an AIDS scare hit the industry.
