She also spoke about it was very difficult for her to deal with her parents when she decided to head to the porn industry. In the video that the former answered the interviewer's question about her family being aware of the time she got into the porn industry. Khalifa replied to the question about her parents by saying, "No. And they disowned me when they found out. I felt completely alienated by not just the world, but my family and the people around me. Especially after I quit, when I was still alone, even though I left. And I just realised some mistakes aren't forgivable. But time heals all wounds, and things are getting better now." Mia Khalifa Covered in Gold Will Take Your Hump Day Blues Away (Watch Video).

With seemingly stable foundations in life, Khalifa said it wasn't just an urge to rebel that led her into porn, but also a lack of self-esteem.

She said: "I don't think low self-esteem discriminates against anyone. It doesn't matter if you come from a great family or if you come from a not-so-great background. I struggled my entire childhood with weight and I never felt attractive or worthy of male attention, and suddenly my first year of college I start losing all this weight from making small changes and by the time I graduated I was ready to make a bigger difference. After feeling what it was like - that validation and the compliments for the first time - I did not want that to go away."
