Tori Black (born Michelle Shellie Chapman, August 26, 1988) is an American pornographic actress.[1][2][3]

Early life

Black was born in Seattle, Washington.[4] She did an undergraduate course in journalism at Western Washington University.[5]

Career

Black started her career at age 18 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she was on a summer vacation while attending college. At her parents' insistence on getting a job, Black saw an advertisement for an adult talent agency and sent in her pictures. The agency accepted and, after considering their offer, Black accepted and returned to the agency a week later.[6] Black's first scene was a solo shaving video for The Score Group, which was filmed in 2007.[7] She was the Penthouse Pet of the Month for December 2008.[8][9]

Black is the first person in history to win two AVN Female Performer of the Year Awards, winning back-to-back years in 2010 and 2011.[6][10] She also won the 2010 and 2011 XRCO Awards for Female Performer of the Year.[11][12] In 2010, she was named by Maxim as one of the 12 top female stars in porn.[13] In 2011, she was also named by CNBC as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn and CNBC noted her role as Catwoman in Vivid Entertainment's Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, as well as her 2010 wins by AVN and XBIZ and 2011 AVN win and XBIZ nomination as Female Performer of the Year.[14]

Black had a guest starring role in episode 3, "Gem and Loan", of season 2 of the Showtime series Ray Donovan where she played porn star Lexi Steele.[15] She also appeared in the film L.A. Slasher.[16]

In 2010, Black was named by Loaded magazine as the most facially attractive female performer in the industry.[17]

Black made her directorial debut with a video for Elegant Angels' website, featuring their Girl of the Month for June 2014, Alina Li.[18]

Personal life

On December 16, 2011, Black announced that she had given birth to a baby boy on October 14 by her fiancé, Lyndell Anderson.[19][20]

In January 2012, Black and her fiancé were arrested for domestic battery after getting into an altercation in a Las Vegas hotel.[1][21] Black later released a statement to AVN explaining that the altercation was the result of her intoxication after a night of partying.[22]

On February 6, 2013, Black announced on her official website that she was four months pregnant with her second child.[23]

Black has stated in an interview that she has had difficulties having meaningful personal relationships while working in the pornographic industry.[6]
