Christine Mackinday, known professionally as Christy Mack,[2][3][4] is an American model and former pornographic actress.

Early life[edit]

Mack grew up in Edinburgh, Indiana, where she was a cheerleader. She married at the age of eighteen but later left her husband and moved to Miami where she began her career.[1]


Mack portrayed DC Comics character Zatanna in the 2012 porn parody The Dark Knight XXX.[5][6]

In April 2013, Mack launched her official website with Puba,[6] and in November, Fleshlight released Attack and Booty, her signature sex toys.[7]

In a 2013 interview with Vice, Mack stated that she planned to retire from performing in adult videos once she had earned enough money to do so.[8] In July 2014, she said she had not performed in a new scene in ten months.[9] She confirmed her retirement in an April 2015 ESPN story.[10]

In 2016, Mack launched a clothing line with the website Pornhub to raise money for domestic violence survivors, following her assault by her ex-boyfriend, mixed martial artist War Machine.[11][12]

Personal life[edit]

Mack began a relationship with mixed martial artist War Machine (born Jonathan Koppenhaver) in 2013.[1][8] She says Koppenhaver became physically abusive toward her a few months later.[1] The relationship ended sometime before August 2014,[1] when Mack and her boyfriend Corey Thomas were assaulted by Koppenhaver in her Las Vegas home.[1][13][14] Mack sustained eighteen broken bones, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib, a ruptured liver, and a thigh bruise that made her unable to walk for a week.[15] Mack says Koppenhaver also attempted to rape her at knifepoint,[16] but was unable to maintain an erection.[17] Koppenhaver was later found guilty of sexual assault and kidnapping and sentenced to life in prison with a possibility of parole after thirty-six years.[2][18]
