Why is Mia Khalifa divorcing Robert Sandberg? 'Therapy and efforts' failed to save marriage
Mia Khalifa announced she and Robert failed to salvage their marriage after trying their best
Former porn star Mia Khalifa has called off her impending wedding reception while also announcing the decision to end her marriage altogether. She and Robert Sandberg had been together for a couple of years and got engaged in 2019. They had their minds set on a wedding ceremony in June 2020, but which was called off due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the couple exchanged wedding vows with each other at their house the same month.
Khalifa and her chef husband had plans for a big belated wedding bash for all their friends and family, and about which she spoke on Instagram quite a lot. Fast forward to July 22, Khalifa announced that they won't be going through with their previous plans and that she and Sandberg are mutually walking away from their marriage.
For those who didn't know, Khalifa was the most viewed adult performer in 2013 - the same year she set foot in the world of adult entertainment. Khalifa -- also known as Mia Callista -- starred in countless porn videos but called it quits within three months.
She has since rebranded herself as an influencer and even worked as a sports commentator for a short period. Khalifa is in the news quite often for her political views, for which she receives a lot of hate, as well as for speaking about the predatory business practices of the porn industry. Khalifa also created an OnlyFans account in 2020, but clarified that her page will never feature nudity. She also donates the proceeds to support charities of her choice.
Why is Mia Khalifa divorcing her husband Robert Sandberg?
Khalifa and Sandberg were one of those couples that seemed like relationship goals. The fun duo shared all stages of their relationship with fans through Khalifa's Instagram. They went from dating to being engaged and then a married couple waiting for the time when they could share their joy with those closest to them, and the fans were right there to show them support through all of it.
Khalifa and Sandberg took some very envious vacations together, while at home they lazed on their couches and communicated with each other through texts despite being in the same room without any of it being weird; Sandberg being the amazing chef that he is rustled up out of the world dishes for Khalifa - if this isn't love, we don't know what is! They also raised a beautiful family of dogs.
Sandberg and Khalifa's marriage has ended as all good things do. After sharing tons of their happy moments from the time they were a couple, Khalifa decided to let her fans in on the not-so-happy stuff as well. "We can confidently say we gave it our all in making our marriage work, but after almost a year of therapy and efforts, we are walking away knowing we have a friend for life in each other, and that we truly tried. We will always love and respect each other because we know that not one isolated incident caused our split, but rather, a culmination of unresolvable, fundamental differences that no one can blame the other for. We are closing this chapter with no regrets and both starting our own, separately, but connected through incredible family, friends, and love for our dogs. This has been long overdue, but we're glad we took out time and gave it our all, and can walk away saying we tried out absolute hardest," Khalifa wrote explaining her decision to divorce her husband.
