Priscilla Bergmair, the wife of MindGeek majority owner Bernd Bergmair, was interviewed on Sunday, wherein she discussed her husband's desire to distance himself from the current mess Pornhub finds itself in.

MindGeek is Pornhub's parent company, and is currently the subject of a class-action lawsuit at the federal level in the US. The lawsuit alleges negligence on Pornhub's part, since it appears that many videos were uploaded with no age verification process required.

It has also come to public attention that many of the people appearing in these videos are possibly victims of sex trafficking.

Priscilla Bergmair expressed concern for all concerned, saying during the course of the interview:

"To be honest, I never knew of this [legal issue]. I was totally out of this … The only thing he told me is that he wishes he was not in this, and I think he will not be very soon."

"It’s not easy. It’s something, maybe, that the government has to work on … making rules,"

The Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act has actually been on the books since it was enacted in 1988, and makes up a key part of the legal framework whereby companies like MindGeek are open to civil and criminal legal actions for not verifying the age of participants in pornographic videos.

"Everyone wants the best to be done. Because people have children. I have children now … We all want things to be right," concluded Ms. Bergmair.
