ISIS is on the warpath and it has its sights not locked on a country but a woman- a former porn star.

Mia Khalifa, 24, was one of the world's most famous porn stars. She comes from Lebanon and her appearance in adult-rated movies gained her a lot of criticisms worldwide from people within that region. ISIS was also not left out.

Even though Mia Khalifa is no longer in the porn business she still gets death threats from the terrorist group. In a recent interview with the Radio Junkies, she said "[Y]ou can't show weakness. That’s exactly what they’re looking for. I really try and just make it look like it rolls off, but I’ll admit, it gets to you after a while."

Khalifa also said that ISIS has sent her photos of her mock up execution on Twitter. Mia Khalifa was born in Lebanon, Beirut but moved to America at the age of 10.

She once appeared in a porn movie wearing a hijab which many people saw as offensive and insensitive. Mia Khalifa comes from a Christian background. She was also dragged in Lebanon for having tattoos.


Mia Khalifa is one of the most searched porn stars on adult websites. In 2015 she hinted that rap star Drake tried to approach her.

She told CBS Miami , that she doesn't mention people who've tried to get her via any means because it's rude.

However when prompted to give a word that the mystery celebrity name rhymes with, she chose 'rake'.... ehm did she mean DRAKE?

Mia said: 'On Instagram, but, nevertheless, it was flattering, but, um, his intentions were obviously clear. It was so cringe worthy, the whole thing was cringe worthy.'
