Miya Khalifa, a Lebanese-American media figure, former porn movie actress, and webcam model, was born in 1993. She started performing in pornographic content in October 2014, and within two months, she had the most viewers on Pornhub. Her choice of work was controversial in the Middle East, particularly after a video emerged showing her engaging in sexual activity while donning a headscarf. 

Mia Khalifa Early Life 

Khalifa was educated Catholic in a “rigorous” environment and was born and raised in Lebanon. She went to a private French-language school in Beirut and picked up English. After the South Lebanon conflict, she and her family left their country and relocated to the United States.

After relocating to the country, her family settled in Montgomery County, Maryland, and she played lacrosse in high school there. She has said that the bullying got worse after the September 11 attacks since she was “the darkest and craziest girl there” at school. 

She attended Massanutten Military School in Woodstock, Virginia, then earned a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Texas. While there, she made a living as a dancer, model, and “briefcase lady” on a regional Spanish version of the Deal or No Deal game show.

Mia Khalifa Career

In October 2014, Khalifa began working as a professional in the pornographic film industry. Her stage name got fame from American rapper Wiz Khalifa and the name of her dog, Mia.

She gained notoriety with the publication of a clip from Bang Brothers in which she participates in a threeway with Sean Lawless and Julianna Vega while donning a hijab. Khalifa’s parents publicly disowned her after the incident, garnering censure from authors and religious leaders. 

The fury she provoked in the Arab world had a little bit of a “Streisand effect,” according to Alex Hawkins, Vice President of Marketing for xHamster. All of a sudden, everyone began looking for her.

Khalifa spent three months acting in pornographic movies before finding employment as a bookkeeper in Miami. She changed careers and is now a webcam model, sports pundit, and social media star. She operates a YouTube channel, performs as a webcam model, broadcasts live on Twitch, offers photoshoots, products, and access to exclusive material on Patreon, and sells explicit pictures and video shoots on Findrow.

Despite Khalifa’s change of profession, Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post observed in 2016 that her social media feed was “still a touch more provocative than that of, say, Ben Bernanke.”

Mia Khalifa Personal Life 

In February 2011, Khalifa got married to her high school sweetheart. 2014 saw their separation, and 2016 saw their divorce. She wed celebrity chef Robert Sandberg in 2019, and the two later divorced. She is now dating Puerto Rican singer Jhayco as of 2022.

She claimed to no longer be a practising Catholic in 2015.

Both the first line of the Lebanese National Anthem and the Lebanese Forces Cross are linked on Khalifa. After the explosion in Beirut in October 2012, she obtained the latter, claiming to do so to “express support with her family’s political convictions.”

Her parents issued a statement denying any responsibility for her acts and attributing her decision to work in the pornographic industry to the fact that she lived abroad in a culture distinct from their own and that her behaviour did not represent her upbringing. Also, they expressed their desire for her to quit porn since they felt that her portrayal there did not respect her family or nation.

Mia Khalifa Net Worth 

According to Alec Helmy, president and publishing company of the adult entertainment industry- XBIZ, Khalifa claimed to have made $12,000 working in the porn industry by earning an estimated $1,000 per scene. She added that she did not receive residual payments from BangBros, Pornhub, or the other free sites where BangBros posted the videos. 

Khalifa might have gained over $500,000 had she been a PornHub partner, according to an estimate published in 2019 by Jason Urgo, CEO of Social Blade, based on how much money Khalifa’s films had brought into the platform. 

She received a stop-and-desist notice from BangBros, which also launched a website to refute her claims against the business. According to BangBros, Khalifa worked in the adult business for over two years and made over $178,000 from them and their affiliates.
