Former porn legend Mia Khalifa has sparked outrage after comparing herself to the Virgin Mary while standing in one of Europe's most iconic cathedrals.
Lebanon-born Khalifa, 29, has been on a world tour for the last year, taking in London and Ibiza among many other destinations.
But was during a visit to the French capital of Paris yesterday where she set the cat among the pigeons.

Mia was attending a fashion event at the American Cathedral in Paris – formerly known as the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity – yesterday (January 19).
And while there she posted a photo of herself in the main cathedral hall at the front of the tiled floor from 1886 which was used as a runway for the event.
Wearing knee-high gaping leather boots and just a pink-striped shirt, she appeared to be fitting in with the fashion crowd at the event.
But it was her comment on Instagram which accompanied the image that caused a huge stir.
She wrote: “Tell your kids this was the Virgin Mary.”
Her caption was accompanied by a prayer beads emoji.
Normally, her 27.5m-strong army of social media fans fawn over her Instagram posts – but not this time.
The image and comment appears to have backfired, as she was slammed for being “disrespectful”.

One person wrote: “She should dress properly for church.
“Nothing is sacred any more in (the) west.”
And a second posted: “I'm an atheist but that's a bit disrespectful IMO (in my opinion).”
A third accused her of “satanism”, while another person added: “You don’t do this type of s**t in a religious place.”
Despite the 364k likes, the comments slamming her for the act received more likes individually than the ones praising her looks in the usual manner her posts attract.

The comment on satanism was liked 59 times, while the one telling her to “dress properly” received more than 50 likes.
Mia also posted a video of herself walking around outside the church while being hounded by a gaggle of Parisian paparazzi, while another clip showed her being interviewed by French news channel France 24.
A further video showed models walking down the catwalk – all dressed in very thick winter clothing and coats – not the same style Mia was wearing.
The venue, which is the only English-speaking cathedral in Paris, is often used to host big events, such as a recent climate change “rave” and Grazia Magazine's annual fashion party a few years ago.
