CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele tearfully announced in a short and cryptic video posted Wednesday evening to her MobyPicture feed that she is done with porn. This comes less than 48 hours after fellow DP girl BiBi Jones abruptly announced her own exit from the business.
In the video, tagged "the truth," Steele said, "I just wanted to post a video stating that I am quitting porn. I'm not going to do anything else. I've ... just as BiBi Jones has been promised a lot of things, and I have not been owned up to anything. I am so sorry to all my fans. I didn't want to let anyone down. I'm very sorry, and ... I just have to let this go."
Steele first signed with Digital Playground in 2008, making her debut in DP founder Joone's blockbuster Pirates 2: Stagnetti's Revenge. She was an instant sensation, and a year later landed her first mainstream role in the horror comedy Piranha 3-D, which in turn earned her AVN's 2011 award for Crossover Star of the Year ... during the same ceremony she was co-hosting. Then at the 2012 AVN Awards, she swept all four of the Fan Awards, as voted upon by the general public.
Not so fast! The flaxen-haired beauty just tweeted moments ago at 4:48 p.m. PDT that she isn't going anywhere.
"Come on guys it was all in good fun I am not quitting or retiring I love porn and theres no way I'm leaving DP," she said at @rileysteele.
Steele is slated to host a series of events at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this weekend on behalf of AVN to commemorate the upcoming 15th anniversary of the Adult Entertainment Expo and the 30th anniversary of the AVN Awards.
