Adult film star, Mia Khalifa, sustained an ice hockey injury that was fatal for her breast implants.
The ex adult film star turned co-host on Rooster Teeth's Sportsball podcast with former ESPN radio personality, Tyler Coe, was watching her team, the Washington Capitals, from rink-side seats at a playoff game. She was sitting behind the glass when the puck came flying over and the 170 gram rubber disc hit her in the chest at around 130km/h.
After the incident, Khalifa recalled, “I was sitting behind the glass during a game, and it came shooting over the glass and it caught me so off guard and I had no idea it was coming. I grabbed my chest and I didn’t want to let go, because I felt like if I did let go blood was going to be everywhere.”
She said that her left breast has been left slightly deflated which will have to be fixed with surgery in 2019. A rep for Khalifa told People, “It is a self-diagnosed injury that occurred as she described in her Instagram post from May.” Her instagram post revealed her clutching her breast while holding up the hockey puck. The picture was captioned "Also, I got hit in the boob with a puck during the game, and I’m 80% sure it ruptured an implant. But the good news is, I got a game-used puck from a Capitals Stanley cup playoff game. Worth it."
Two months after she posted the photo, she confirmed that the implant had deflated and that she would be having surgery in 2019. Khalifa is Lebanese-American who was raised as a Catholic and became famous when she shot a porn scene wearing a Muslim hijab. Although this made her the most searched adult film star on various sites, she also received a lot of negative attention from the Muslim community and even received death threats.
She then left the porn industry aiming to pursue a normal career starting her working life as a bookkeeper and a paralegal, she has recently endeavoured into the sports world to reinvent herself as a sport reporter.
She assured fans that this hockey puck mishap would not stop her from pursuing her dream as a sports reporter.
