It might be an unexpected place to find marriage advice but Mia Khalifa has responded following a backlash online to her tips about relationships on TikTok.

The influencer and former adult film star made waves online when she posted a video to her TikTok page advising young women to 'leave these men', saying they weren't 'stuck' with their spouses.

Khalifa has been married twice, with her first marriage being to her high school boyfriend in 2011.

And her second marriage was to chef Robert Sandberg, but the pair split after two years together.

Describing herself as the 'Tom Brady' of the marriage game, Khalifa offered her thoughts about how to feel comfortable with calling it quits if a relationship is no longer working or healthy.

In the original video, she said: "We are not stuck with these people. Marriage is not a sanctimonious thing. It is paperwork. "It is a commitment you make to someone, but if you feel like you’re not getting anything from that commitment and you’re trying, you got to go.

"You got to go. You have to go.

"I know it’s difficult to fill out paperwork, and to make appointments and to do all of these things, but this your f**king life, you want to be stuck with someone?"

Many people were unimpressed with her advice, however, saying that things can be a bit more complicated, especially if there are children involved.

Some also highlighted their belief that marriage very much is a sacred undertaking, and not 'just paperwork'.

"Absolutely not. marriage is absolutely sanctimonious." someone said.

However, Khalifa has hit back and stood by her comments.

She said: “I’m failing to see what’s wrong in telling young women - who get married young - that if they are in relationships that are unhealthy and toxic, and make them unhappy, that just because they made a ‘commitment,’ they are not stuck in these relationships.”

Khalifa also accused the main people who were put out by her remarks of being the sort of men who might not want their partners to be so confident.

She continued: “[The ones] who are afraid of their women having self realisations, and exercising free will, and leaving them.

"Because the only thing holding their relationships together is probably the fact that they made ‘a commitment,’ and their religion and families.”

She then added that people didn't have to stay in a relationship that they weren't happy in.

“If you’re not happy, get the f** out of there.” Khalifa said.
