CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Hall of Famer Belladonna announced on Twitter this morning that she has decided once and for all to close the book on performing in X-rated movies.
"I am no longer interested in having sex on camera," Belladonna tweeted at approximately 10:30 am. "That chapter of my life is finished. I'm ready for my next challenge."
She continued in followup tweets, "The things I will be spending my time doing are: aerial silks, school, acting, dancing and of course being the best mother I can be. I haven't had sex on camera since January and have been thinking about this transition for sometime now."
The adult industry icon, who was also recently inducted into the Hustler Hollywood Walk of Fame, just wrapped production on the independent horror film Stripped, and will be performing her silks routine at the upcoming Exxxotica Chicago expo, taking place July 13-15 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
This is not the first time Belladonna has sworn off porn performing; she made a similar announcement in 2007, only to revoke it a month later, and she took an unofficial hiatus of nearly two years between 2009 and 2011 before returning in multiple 2012 AVN Award nominee Spontaneass. Belladonna could not be reached for comment as of post time.
