Former adult actress Mia Khalifa has opened up about her injuries at a Stanley Cup hockey game involving a puck that flew over the glass: the sports presenter will get breast surgery next year.
Khalifa remained in the adult actors industry for 3 months in 2014. She was the number one performer on the adult site, and is still ranked second four years later. She has now moved on from acting to being a sports presenter, and is a co-host for Roosters Sports in the video podcast Sportsball. The American-Lebanese national shared news of the injury with her 9 million Instagram followers about two months ago.
She was attending a Stanley Cup game to support her team, the Washington Capitals, in a play-off game against Tampa Bay Lightening, when a hockey puck flew over the glass and hit her left breast. The 6 pound puck was going at 80 mph and deflated the implant in her breast. It will require surgery soon. Khalifa kept the puck as a souvenir as a way of turning the situation around!
She posted on Instagram about it, writing, “Also, I got hit in the b**b 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.”
The sports presenter told the Daily Star, “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,” adding, “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 elaborated, “I got to take it home, it was the single greatest souvenir any hockey fan can get: a game-used puck that comes at you and hits you. They’re really heavy and it’s pure rubber, they go at about 80mph. My left breast is slightly deflated now and I will be getting it fixed next year.”
