Mia Khalifa claims her ex-husband pushed her into the adult entertainment profession.

When she was still dating her ex-husband, Mia Khalifa talked openly about the pressure she felt to enter the adult entertainment business.

She admitted that one of the reasons she got into porn was an “abusive” relationship she had when she was in her late teens when she made an appearance on a new episode of Steven Bartlett’s Diary Of A CEO podcast.

The 30-year-old, who is now known by her true name Sarah Joe Chamoun, said that she was in a “grooming” relationship with a person who was “extremely abusive,” adding that this type of situation is common for “a lot of girls” in their late teens.

Four days after turning 18, I was talked into eloping to Las Vegas, and she admitted to the host. “I didn’t have a sense of self, so I clung to someone who was more than willing to take advantage of that, someone who could see that and saw someone readily manipulatable… but at the same time eager to please. Simply put, it was a perfect storm.”

However, when her husband, who was serving in the US Army at the time, introduced her to the adult entertainment industry, things seemed to take an even darker turn.

She continued, “[He] put that whole [porn] world in front of me and encouraged it,” before adding that she would rather not call it a “relationship.”

Even calling it a relationship makes her uncomfortable because the dynamics were more like those of someone playing with a toy than a couple.

The former performer’s career in the porn industry began when she was just 20 years old after receiving a card from a porn scout.

The actress shot to fame after taking part in a very contentious sex scene in which she was shown engaging in sexual activity with Sean Lawless and Julianna Vega while donning a headscarf. Due to the sexualization of the religious headdress in the viral film, Chamoun experienced severe anger and even received death threats from ISIS.

The 30-year-old became one of the most sought-after porn performers in the world as a result.

On a BBC HARDtalk broadcast, Chamoun spoke candidly about the response and how it affected her future relationships with her partners and her own family.

When asked if her family knew what she was doing when she initially started, she replied, “I shocked even myself,” to Stephen Sackur, the interviewer.

“No… When they learned, they disowned me.

“I felt totally alienated from not only the world but also my family and the people around me,” she continued. even after I left, even though I was still by myself. And I just realized that some errors cannot be excused.

But, she said, “Time heals all wounds, and things are improving today.
