Mia Khalifa, whose brief involvement in the adult film industry continues to garner fans to this day, would like those concerned with such financial figures to know that she is not "[raking] in millions" from that work. 

When tweeting out a link to 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 about making just $12,000 has sparked an online debate about adult film practices, with assessments rolling in from different sides of the issue.
