Mia Khalifa says she'll be getting surgery after being hit by a hockey puck at '80mph'
It would be safe to say that, as far as re-inventions go, you'd be hard pressed to find someone who has undergone one as dramatic as Mia Khalifa. The former-adult actress is now a sports presenter and Instagram celebrity - however, she still maintains her controversial nature.
Khalifa has the power to divide her audience like no other celebrity on the planet. Whether it's editing herself onto a picture of the Virgin Mary, or telling her fans to not get tattoos of her on their body, she knows how to cause a stir online.
But, for all the controversy and the "I'm invincible" attitude, it turns out Khalifa can be dented. According to her, she will be going under the knife after she was hit in the chest by a hockey puck, which has left part of her chest ‘deflated’.
Mia claims that she was watching a Stanley Cup Playoff game when the six-ounce disk went flying into her, leaving her in pain and worrying about the implications that it would have on her breast implants.
Despite the pain, the American-Lebanese presenter decided to keep the puck as a valued and much-loved souvenir.
Mia claimed that the puck – used in game four between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning – was probably travelling at around 80mph when it hit her in the chest. The sports presenter was sitting right on the glass, making her a prime target for any rogue pucks.
"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.
"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, 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."
While this may sound like a pretty horrendous and painful experience, Mia, who presents Rooster Teeth’s sports video podcast Sportsball, said it wasn’t the most painful experience of her life:
"I’ve seen my team (Washington Capitals) lose before, that’s a lot more painful".
Mia claims to have played hockey when she was growing up and, taking to her Instagram after the incident, she didn't seem to bothered by the whole ordeal, writing:
"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."
Fair play Mia, if you think a circular bit of rubber is worth more than severe pain and a new implant, then good on you.
