LOS ANGELES — Rocco Siffredi, the superstar performer/director who is the 2015 XBIZ Foreign Performer of the Year, has released an official statement about his recent decision to retire from performing.

Siffredi's statement follows:

"Since 30 years I am in this business, and since 23 years I am married to my wife, Rosa who gave me an amazing family.

"During in those 30 years I always worked with the same energy and dedicated all my soul and body to this work.

"Even though more than a year ago I started to get uncomfortable in the front of the camera, something inside of me has changed, and all this is related to my family. I had the opportunity to do this reality show where I was being away from the family, work and all kind of media, me and myself.

"I had two months to think only about my future and simply out of this experience I could see my priority has changed. Since before, me being an actor was something was on my first priority on my life. Today I can see, my wife, she is the top priority. And that is why I made this decision.

"She deserves to have what she wanted from day one, to be with only me without sharing with other girls.

"When I came out with this decision, I read on the Internet that some actresses and some people did not understand why I did this.

"Some of them criticized me very badly without knowing my life, my feelings, the way I am when I am going home or when I am on the set.

"This is the only truth. I really love my wife, and at one point, it does not matter how much money you make or what kind of work you do. You need to make decisions, the right ones, for the people who love you and deserve love from you.

"I am sure in the future I will be missing very much to be in the front of the camera but I am also sure that this challenge, to be just behind of the camera will give me lots of motivation to make great movies as I always did when I was also an actor.

"I would like to make a conclusion by saying a big-big thanks for all of my fans who supported me and to make my career the way I had, wonderful.

"And to all of the actresses, actors, producers and directors who I met during these 30 years, working together, enjoying great moments that made my life.

"And I am very, very grateful for my amazing friend John Stagliano, who has been my mentor for all those 30 years. I learned most of my knowledge from this incredible man with his sincerity and honesty by teaching me all what I know."
