Steven Spielberg’s Porn Star Daughter Mikaela Opens Up About Being Sexually Abused as a Child

Mikaela Spielberg

*Steven Spielberg’s adopted Black daughter Mikaela is speaking out about her new career as a sex worker and the news has many giving her rich daddy the side-eye.

The 23-year-old was adopted by the acclaimed filmmaker with wife Kate Capshaw, and as we previously reported, in a new interview with The Sun, Mikaela explains that she has started producing her own ‘solo porn videos’ and is aiming to secure a job as a stripper in Tennessee, where she lives with her fiancé. 

Her goal is to produce “erotica,” which she describes as “pictures and videos for private customers or for the public, if that ever arises.”

Mikaela claims her famous father supports her career choice, despite only just finding out about it.

But inquiring minds want to know if Spielberg would be just as supportive if his white, biological daughters with his wife were also pursuing a career in the porn industry?

Mikaela, who is engaged to 47-year-old Chuck Pankow (who many believe is actually her pimp), admits she suffers from borderline personality disorder because she was groomed and sexually abused by “scumbag monsters” outside of her family when she was a child.

In what sounds like a page ripped straight out of the MK Ultra handbook, she says the abuse has caused her to struggle with anxiety, depression, an eating disorder and near-fatal alcohol abuse.

This revelation comes as no shock to those familiar with the longtime rumors that Spielberg himself has been sexually abusing kids since the 80’s.

“I’m in a good place right now, but we all have relapses. Being open in this way and sharing my story and choosing this career is not a relapse for me. I actually feel very grounded and validated right now,” says Mikaela.

While she claims the abuse she suffered was at the hands of sinister individuals who lived outside her family home, she’s careful not to say that her abusers were part of her parent’s circle of pedo/pervert Hollywood friends.

Via Daily Mail:

By 11, she had started drinking to cope with her trauma, and as a teenager she was sent to a boarding school for troubled teens. 

But rather than help get her in line, it worsened her anxiety, depression, self-hatred, and attachment issues.  It was there that she developed an eating disorder 

She continued to drink for years, and at age 21 was drinking every day. She admits she ‘almost died a couple times.’

Mikaela insists the abuse wasn’t her parents’ fault, and they “couldn’t have known” what she was dealing with.

“I’ve had my fights and struggles with them, but it’s only out of fear that people sometimes care incorrectly because they want you to be alive and safe,” she says. “They are some of the least spiteful people I know. I love them so deeply.”

Steven Spielberg's daughter

Spielberg told The Guardian in 1999 that part of the reason he and his wife decided to adopt Mikaela was that they “wanted Theo not to be the only black child in the family.”

Theo, 31, is the couple’s other Black adopted child.

Mikaela didn’t mention in the interview what her siblings think of her chosen career as a porn star.

Her oldest sister, Jessica Capshaw, 43, is her mom Kate’s daughter with ex-husband Robert Capshaw. There’s also brother Max, 33, sister Sasha, 29, brother Sawyer, 27, and sister Destry, 23.

In the interview with The Sun, Mikaela makes clear that she will not have sex with another person on camera out of respect for her fiancé.

“The reason I don’t want to do anything outside of solo stuff is because I feel like it would be a violation of my boundaries and my relationship with my significant other,” she explains.

As for the type of pornos she wants to create: “I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body,” she says. “Frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body…and I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul.”

Adding “I feel like honestly doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that feels violative.”

When it comes to her parents, she notes, “I actually think that once they see how far I’ve come from the bottom I was at a year and a half ago, they’re going to look at this and go, ‘Wow, we actually raised a really self-assured young lady and we’ve raised someone who knows exactly what they want in life and who basically doesn’t let people push her around,'” she told The Sun. “I think they will be supportive possibly even with some security measures in place once they know that I’m doing this out of like this gentle, genuine desire to not survive, but thrive as well.”
