Ex-adult film star reveals how 'God removed the veil from my eyes'

Crystal DiGregorio-Bassette has described weeping at a church altar one Easter Sunday - the moment she believed God convinced her to leave her decade-long pornography career behind.

The 34-year-old from upstate New York, told Fox News: "God removed the veil from my eyes, I started looking at the world differently.

"I noticed how much people were being hurt by the porn industry and I never really thought of it before that."

DiGregorio-Bassette, who made her last adult film when she was 31, had been earning $30,000 per month and living in a mansion in Calfornia. After leaving the industry, she needed to declare bankruptcy.

She also explained how her past helps others share openly with her.

The mother-of-three, who has since become a Christian counsellor, added: "Anybody feels that they can come to me, and that's what I like about it.

"They can talk to me openly and not have to worry about me judging them,"

DiGregorio-Bassette attends the Lighthouse Mexico Church of God - which is led by Pastor Ron Russell - which is in the town of Mexico.
