Mia Khalifa is known for her work in the adult site industry. This 26-year-old Lebanese- American adult star requires no introduction. The actress worked for an adult site for 3 months only but still holds a huge fanbase all over the world.
The actress left the industry in 2015 but people are still crazy for her thus makes her the second most searched star on the adult sites.
Ever thought of the amount she would be paid in? for a matter of fact, yes at some point we would have. Being a famous star in the adult site, makes us assume that she would have minted millions of dollars from the industry. Considering their work, we assume that these stars would be paid millions for a single video adding benefits to the site due to the popularity of the stars.
But popularity need not necessarily be tied with money. In a recent interview, Mia Khalifa had cleared all the misconceptions that people had regarding the earnings. She herself shared a video with her followers where she revealed that it is way less than what we all expected. She wrote:
“People think I am 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.”

The tweet went viral in no seconds and as usual and had a million viewership. She also posted the youtube link of the interview with Megan Abbott in the tweet.
She talks about her personal life and the stumbling blocks she came across after leaving the industry. “It was difficult to find a job as everyone knew me” said Mia. “I also received threat calls from ISIS for wearing hijab in the adult film.”
The reply by Johnny Sins, an internet sensation in the world of adult entertainment added more relevance to the post.
He wrote: “As far as shooting for other companies, other than your own, you make a day rate. Thus it depends on how many days/scenes you shoot. If you shoot 12 you make $365k (on average) that’s why it’s important to shoot your own content, $ for life.”

The company generates $2 billions every year from subscription videos to DVD and broadcast licensing, though exact numbers are notoriously difficult to track, said Alec Helmy, president and publisher of XBIX-adult industry news site. Live streaming brings in another $2 billion dollars.
This reveals the underlying truth of the porn sites of minting billions but hardly paying a few thousand to the actors/actresses.
The company would have gained huge profits only through Mia Khalifa’s videos because of her popularity and craziness among the fans. However, the company hesitates to reveal the profit earned.
