Adult film star, Mia Khalifa, has revealed that despite the notion that porn stars make a lot of money, she made a total of $12,000 and has since not seen a penny after that.
Khalifa shot into fame in 2017, after her award-winning adult film ranked her as the number 1 performer on PornHub.
Mia Khalifa gained a lot of followers and has since been very popular on the internet. Mia has however since retired from the profession.
In a recent wide-ranging interview she did with Megan Abbott, Khalifa said claims of her making millions are false.
“I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that,” she said, adding that finding a “normal job” after leaving the industry was difficult and scary.
Khalifa’s tweet has since sparked an online debate about adult film practices, with assessments rolling in from different sides of the issue.
People think I’m racking in millions from porn. 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 porn was… scary. Full interview here: https://t.co/xHK7SmhfrY pic.twitter.com/fwJlyzHznq— Mia K. (@miakhalifa) August 12, 2019
