Bonnie Rotten Returns to Performing as Brazzers Exclusive

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Sometimes it’s better to give than receive ... and Bonnie Rotten followed that philosophy on her birthday today. The 2014 AVN Female Performer of the Year gave her fans a big gift: the announcement that she was returning to the business and had just signed an exclusive contract with Brazzers.

Sporting blonde tresses and a black bikini that revealed her iconic ink art, Rotten addressed her fans in a video she posted to Twitter and Instagram: “It’s my birthday but I have a surprise for you guys. Say hello to your newest exclusive official Brazzers contract star: me! I can’t wait to have some fun for you guys.”

The announcement was met with fan jubilation, but also some comments from industry folk. Joanna Angel noted on Instagram, “It’s good to have you back … porn was not the same without you.” And Cytherea tweeted, “Oh lord this is good news. maybe we can do a squirt scene wouldnt that be fun. Happy Birthday.”

On behalf of Brazzers, contract performer/director Keiran Lee commented to AVN, "What can I say about the signing of Bonnie Rotten! One of the true greats of porn in such a short space of time. I look forward to both working with her and directing her again; she was truly missed on her mini-hiatus and can't wait to welcome her to the Brazzers family again."

Rotten had a meteoric rise in porn, serving as an AVN Awards trophy girl in 2013 and then taking the AVN Female Performer of the Year title the following year. After that she began directing movies as well, and it was full speed ahead until she went on a maternity hiatus in 2015. She returned to feature dancing and girl/girl shoots, but has not been in front of the camera for several years now.
