A Texas man has accused Mia Khalifa of punching him in the grill, after he took a picture of her without asking at a recent Future show in Austin.
The man, who has been identified by the San Antonio Express-News as Jared, shared the news on Twitter, posting the attempted selfie, as well as a photo of his face with an alleged bruise (we can’t see anything).

The incident took place on June 23rd at the Austin360 Amphitheatre for Future’s “Nobody Safe Tour”.
“Since me and my friends had already been ignored when we asked for a picture, I just decided to do what the others were doing,” Jared told the Express-News. “I walked ahead of her to the side and took a picture as she came up making sure I wasn’t in her space.”
Jared claims that after he snapped the photo, Mia told him to “get the f*ck away” from her and punched him in the face.
Mia Khalifa, however, denies the account, explaining her side on Twitter. “If you yell degrading profanities at me for half a mile then jump in my personal space uninvited, I will defend myself,” she tweeted.
Fans of the former adult film star offered their own experiences with her, sharing their own photos they’ve taken with her in public. They received thank yous from Mia.
You were the sweetest. Thank you for asking me nicely rather than jumping in front of me while I was walking & shoving a cam in my face https://t.co/1fQK0B5gSi

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Mia Khalifa… you don’t f*ck with her.
