A former porn star has shared how she found God, left the industry and became a Christian pastor.
Crystal Bassette from Clay, New York, was formerly known as porn star Nadia Hilton, starring in more than 100 explicit videos over a decade. She eventually left the adult film scene when she prayed to God, was 'saved' and went on to pastor a church, according to the Daily Mail.
'It's definitely the ultimate change. It's going from one extreme to the next. I had to get away from this whole life,' Crystal said.
At 16 years old, Crystal became pregnant with her eldest son Justin. To provide for him, she moved to Hollywood, California, to become a model and dancer. Years later, she was offered $30,000 as an adult film actress. Her first porn shoot however, left her emotionally and mentally scarred.
'I remember after the scene, I sat in the shower for about two hours crying,' Crystal said. 'Then I stopped after that shoot and didn't go back for about one month.Every Christian has a sinful past for which they need to seek God's forgiveness. Her husband and her will be pastoring a church with a very appropriate name: New Beginnings. I've long thought Reclamation would also make a fine name for a church. Unsurprisingly, the Daily Mail article was much more salacious; it is Britain after all.
