Who is she?

Mia Khalifa, 27, is a social media personality, webcam model, and sports commentator.

She hails from Beirut, but relocated to the US with her family in 2001 amid the conflict in Southern Lebanon.

Khalifa’s family settled in Montgomery County, Maryland and she eventually moved away from home to attend the University of Texas where she graduated with a degree in history.

She married her high school boyfriend and began sharing NSFW images on Reddit, landing her a stint in the adult film world in 2014.

She was widely criticised for working as an adult film star and even received death threats from the Islamic state.

Khalifa quit the industry shortly after and relocated to Miami where she worked as a paralegal and bookkeeper.

A petition recently circulated the internet demanding that her videos be taken down after she recently admitted they will "haunt her until she dies."

She now runs a YouTube channel and live streams on Twitch.

Khalifa also shares insight about sports and players on her social media accounts.

Who is she engaged to?

Khalifa announced in March of 2019 that she was engaged to Swedish chef Robert Sandberg.

Alongside a snap of her and Sandberg, she wrote: “Thank you a million times over for the entire team at @smythchicago for helping @robertsandberg propose this trip and dinner was supposed to celebrate him getting his visa!

“Robert has planted the seed so deep in my mind for so long that he hates restaurant proposals so I never, EVER, saw this coming. I love y’all so much! Thank you!”

The pair married a few months later in June in the kitchen of their first home.

They were set to have a formal ceremony a year later but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is her second marriage after divorcing her undisclosed high school boyfriend in 2016.

What is her net worth?

It is estimated that Khalifa is worth approximately $4 million.
