Since January of 2015, months after she left her job at the Fuddruckers* to start a p0rn career at a customer’s suggestion, Adult Film Star Mia Khalifa has been one of the biggest names in the industry. By then, she’d already been the top-rated p0rn star on streaming giant P*rnhub for a month. Mia Khalifa revealed in a recent interview that she only made a total of $12,000 (Rs 8.5 lakhs) from her time in the industry.
In a recent interview with Megan Abbott, she clarifies a lot of the misconceptions about the adult film industry. “A lot of things online are wrong. Most of them still claim that I do p0rn. I haven’t done p*rn in five years,” she tells Abbott. Along with this, she also dispels how much she made in her brief career in the industry. In a video she posted on Twitter, she clarifies this, also sharing how it wasn’t “sunshine and flowers” after she quit the industry and tried to enter the workforce.
“People think I’m racking in millions from p0rn. Completely untrue. 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 p0rn was… scary.” She clarified that she didn’t “expect to make millions,” but it was a common misconception people had. (Mia Khalifa 2019 Calendar)
