  • She also talked about having the wrong circle of friends 
  • Rhoades described her prison stint as the "best thing" that has happened to her 

Porn star Lana Rhoades has opened up about her time behind bars after falling in with the wrong crowd.

During the Sept. 30 episode of the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, Rhoades talked about her younger years and how she got caught up with the wrong circle, which ended in her landing in prison.

“I was just with people who were doing stuff. Basically, I had a boyfriend and he had friends – shady people, they were older than me. They break in houses, they do all that type of stuff and I was just with them,” Rhoades told host Alexandra Cooper, explaining that she didn’t take anything for herself and didn’t make money out of anything.

She revealed on the “ImPaulsive” podcast with Logan Paul and Mike Majlak in March that she spent over a year in prison and had only been 16 when she was put behind bars.

When asked by Cooper about how her time in prison had changed her, Rhoades admitted, “Going to prison was probably the best thing that ever happened to me because I was on such a bad path in my life.”

The adult actress also recalled her troubled past, explaining that she had been arrested 20 times prior to her entering prison and did “hardcore drugs” like heroin when she was younger.

“I never really did drugs again after I got out, I barely drink, never committed a crime after. I think I wouldn’t be where I am today if I wouldn’t have went [sic],” Rhoades admitted, before adding, “It saved me.”

During her time at the facility, Rhoades said she never received any letters from the man she was dating – the same person whom she said was the reason she was in jail. Once Rhoades got out, she “started putting men in their place.”

“I was the biggest [expletive] doormat before that,” she admitted.

This was a learning curve for Rhoades, who now doesn’t let anything get past her.

“Now with the smallest thing, I call it out. My boyfriends don’t get away with s---,” she explained.

After she got out of jail, Rhoades secured a job at Tilted Kilt before joining a strip club the day she turned 18.
