Top 25: A List of Famous Dead Pornstars (2016 - 2019)

#1. Brazzers
#2. RealityKings
#3. True Amateurs

Did you know that the average life expectancy of a pornstar is around 31 years? In fact, the number was closer to 38 just a decade earlier. So, what happened? You have more pornstars than ever and more importantly, much younger females that enter the porn industry. That is not necessary a horrible thing, but when you are 18-years old, chances are, your psyche is weak.

In the end, you have suicides, overdoses and dramas that end up with pornstars dead. It does not help that Twitter and other platforms allow fans to bully the young performers. Not a single pornstar here deserved her fate, but here we are… Masturbating to the dead pornstars and thinking only about our private parts. That’s just the way life works, especially when the industry is worth over $100 billion.

Pornstars that Died in 2016

26Natasha Vega (Shannon Ann Whetzel)

Another one bites the dust, a former drug-addict and adult performer, Natasha Vega. Her life was going surprisingly well, at least from what we know. Vega was even named the Miss Exotic Florida back in 2012, a title that many women desire. Why? Because appreciation.

Unlike other pornstars, Natasha began with hardcore porn back in 2011 as a beautiful teen pornstar. She was known for all the right reasons. Her portfolio includes scenes with studios like New Sensations, Reality Kings and Evil Angel. Just a young life wasted. According to her friends, Natasha has been battling drug addiction for years before her demise.

25Bella Blaze (Brittany Marie Glysz)

A busty natural known for her 36DD breasts and loving attitude has passed away. Can you guess the reason? Of course, it was drugs and the usual overdose. That’s the cause that has pretty much infected adult industry! The numbers are shocking, with 9 out of 10 pornstars dying from this or suicide.

The issues ring deeper that just drugs, it’s just the side-effect after all. We can never know the personal issues that Bella had to deal with, but her solution was questionable substances.

24Amber Rayne (Ambrosia Rankin)

Go hard or go home, and that’s the fate that Amber has chosen. She did overdose on cocaine, although one has to wonder how much you have to snort to collapse from this drug. Her death was bit unusual, at least to some people. Amber did claim that James Deen, a popular male pornstar has raped her. However, it was during the porn scene, so exactly is that rape? Who knows…?

Funnily enough, Amber has agreed to shoot more scenes with him later and then became friends. That’s the porn logic at its finest. Other than that, this famous pornstar had more than 500 credits under her name.

23Candye Kane (Candace Hogan)

The former pornstar, a professional singer and just a cool person in general, Candye has unfortunately passed away. She never reached the peak of Kanye West or Madonna, but that does not matter much.

This woman has been fighting pancreatic cancer for 8 years! Now that’s one tough individual. In her 2000 album, Candye dedicated one song to her illness and it was titled “I’m the Toughest Girl Alive”. It has just shy over 5,000 views on YouTube. However, it just means that you can find her works not only on PornHub but Spotify and other places.

22Carla Mai (Aimee Spencer)

Let’s be clear here, it was not “an accident” that happens to everyone. It Various media outlets quickly ran with the story, trying to bring drama and murder accusations. Allegedly, she fell out of a window after someone pushed her out. Battling for over a week on life-support, Carla did eventually passed away.

As the autopsy later revealed, cocaine and ketamine were found in her system. Her friends did contribute to the story, claiming that she was in a dream-like state before collapsing. Could she have died from the drugs alone?

21Hotaru Akane (Anna Akizuki)

Does this name ring the bell to anyone? Hotaru was a famous Japanese actress and a popular blogger among all things. Despite her active role in HIV and AIDS scenery, Anna did not have the illness herself. Not sure how wrong it is to masturbate to dead pornstars, but you should watch her scenes.

In fact, Hotaru was a god-like figure among porn viewers, mostly due to her ability to ejaculate on the spot. She was found dead at her own home although experts rejected suicide or foul play causes. Instead, everyone believes that she has simply suffocated from the asthma attack.

20Alexis Grace (Alexis Grace Middleton)

One of the very pornstars that has died of the natural causes. Alexis Grace might not have the most videos in her portfolio, but she was still popular. This is one of those deaths that could have been avoided, if threated properly. On the other hand, everyone can pretend to be smart after the act.

According to her friends, Alexis was battling with the shortness of breath and asthma for few months. She was found unresponsive and it was too late to do anything other than send her to the morgue.

Pornstars that Died in 2017

19Loni Evans (Sasha Davis)

It does not take much for the imagination to kick in, at least concerning the death of Loni Evans. She has died on the New Year’s Eve and was still in her 20s. In addition to that, her family did not want to talk about the circumstances behind her death, which does not help to clear her image.

I mean, unless she died of natural or “respectable” causes, one would always tell. We can guess all we want, be it overdose, or something related to drunk decisions. However, in the end it does not really matter. May she rest in peace.

18Hugh M. Hefner

Here’s a porn star, that is not a pornstar. The most famous man on the planet, Hugh M. Hefner. Yes, this is the alpha male that has created Playboy magazine and turned it into a multi-billion-dollar business.

Has slept with more women than anyone, and it was not always about sex. He has spent almost 100 years on planet Earth and will be always remembered. There is no other name in adult industry that is as cliché as Playboy. Jesus, his photos date to the black and white era. What a legend.

One of the rare deaths in adult business that is of old age, despite alcohol and smoking habits.

17Shyla Stylez (Amanda Hardy)

A Canadian pornstar that was as popular as any other A-level performer, Shyla Stylez died of unknown causes. She was found unconscious in her bed and was later pronounced dead by the medical personnel. Her fanbase was devastated and no wonder. Afterall, she was named as one of the top 10 pornstars of all-time by many. Yes, including our own list.

This blond angel was involved in a sex scandal, had dreams of becoming a pornstar since the age of 18 and more. She was also featured in the AVN Hall of Fame just before her death.

Timeframe: 1982 – 2017

16Roxy Nicole (Shannon Nicole Hartman)

Another life wasted, and it’s a teen pornstar from California. Why would anyone pick drugs over Xbox? That’s the answer beyond my comprehension. She was popular with the interracial porn crowd and other porn studios.

Not sure if related, but Roxy had contracts with a shady modeling agency that could have pushed her into a path of more drugs. Well, she did overdose on heroin and that was it. The name alone sends shivers down our spines. I mean, it’s the drug of all drugs, and we mean that in the worst way possible.

Date of Birth: September 27, 1995
Date of Death: November 18, 2017
Timeframe: 1995 – 2017

15August Ames (Mercedes Grabowski)

This one did hit us hard, and so everyone else. August Ames was one of those honest pornstars that got into trouble for speaking her mind. Her husband later wrote a separate blog post, which gave us more details about her death. Just like every loving person, it does not take much to start blaming yourself and guilt-tripping. We do not blame him by any means and wish Kevin the best.

Anyway, what happened? She refused to have sex with a man that did gay porn, stating HIV fears. Well, that did not end well, and the Internet went witch hunting. Lots of name calling, homophobic quotes and other non-sense. Personally, I fully support August and her decision.

She could not cope with the bullying and hanged herself.

Date of Birth: August 23, 1994
Date of Death: December 5, 2017
Timeframe: 1994 – 2017

Cause of Death: Suicide

14Yuri Luv (Yurizan Beltrán Lebanue)

Just few weeks after August Ames has passed away, another popular pornstar left everyone speechless. At first, media connected two deaths for reasons that make no sense. Although afterwards it was revealed that Yurizan was found dead in her bed.

With so many pornstars taking drugs and other garbage, her cause shocked no-one. It was the opioid overdose. With more than 200 scenes shot, Yurizan had one of the largest fanbases as of that year.

Date of Birth: November 2, 1986

13Olivia Nova (Lexi Rose Forte)

One of the most beautiful teen pornstars, Olivia Nova has died of unknown causes at the age of 20. While she wasn’t as popular as some other names, it does not make her death any less important. In fact, her future projections were sky high.

She had contracts with pretty much every top porn network, including Brazzers and FTV Girls. The later reports said that Nova had a poorly treated urinary tract infection that got out of hand. Basically, it has since transitioned to sepsis, a complication of an infection.

Another Olivia, just with a more mysterious reason for death. She had many personal and other challenges, including months in rehab facilities.

Her friends and family were reportedly extremely concerned about the number of prescription drugs that she has been taking. This could have been an accidental death due to alcohol that have boosted the effects of drugs.

11Natasha Blu

Appreciated by many and mourned by everyone. Natasha looked like a one happy pornstar and worked a lot since 2017. Had a respectable number of amazing scenes on amateur sites like GFLeaks and famous studios like Kink.

All we know is that it was a suicide by a gunshot, which is just awful. This isn’t the first or last pornstar to die from self-inflicting wounds.

10Deven Davis (Deven Augustina Schuette)

Not only did she work in the porn and fashion industries but was even more famous due to her husband’s achievements. Jonathan Davis was his name, a lead vocalist in one of the most successful bands “Korn”. Their life was great as multiple sources cite philanthropic and other activities.

The couple has later divorced and Deven even got a restraining order put against her. Why? Domestic violence was the leading claim. There were also rumors about their drug and alcohol problems that the former pornstar has faced.

9Niki Lee Young

Having worked with Brazzers, Digital Desire, Playboy and Twistys, Niki is no longer with us. She was one of the most beautiful, innocent models that has passed away due to stage 4 cervical cancer. What that means is that it has spread to other organs like bladder or even bones.

While early stage surgeries can remove uterus, it was a death sentence for Niki, which saddens us. Also, early stage cancer does not produce any symptoms, which is why it sucks so much.

Kasey or Jesse Brooks is another of many retired pornstars that has overdosed and died. Her achievements in porn include contracts with Mile High Media, Hustler and Twistys. In other words, she wasn’t your ordinary trash and had a shot at becoming famous pornstar.

Back in 2013, Kasey got involved with the law due to drug use and similar offenses. Having read multiple reports, it’s the drugs that are blamed for her sudden death. Her heart stopped, then she got into a coma and that was the end of it.

Date of Birth: April 13, 1991
Date of Death: November 18, 2018

With dreams still in check, Nikki thought about nothing else but adult modeling. Later, she worked with guys from MILFHunter under the alias “Candis”. Few years down the drain and Kat Kora became her new name in the escort community.

According to multiple reports, she had feed her addiction, which is why she got into porn. Her last message on Twitter is interesting, to say the least. Nikky has asked her fans to pray for her because she is going to the hospital.

Age: 24

Pornstars that Died in 2019

5Bill Bailey (Joseph David Reeves)

Who is this guy? Let’s just say that his fame came from AJ Applegate, the former girlfriend. Just like with many other male deaths, this one is all about alcohol. For women it’s all about poisoning or overdose, for men it’s accidents.

He got extremely drunk and fell over the stairs at the hotel. It was a fall of 4 floors, so not exactly a cake walk. Due to the severity of injuries, doctors could not do much but pronounce him dead.

Date of Birth: November 21, 1980
Date of Death: March 3, 2019
Timeframe: 1980 – 2019

Cause of Death: Accident
Age: 38

4Nicole Clitman (Holly Hanson)

In just two years, Nicole has filmed more than 35 adult movies. Her scenes were featured on famous studios like Evil Angel, Reality Kings and Digital Playground. At least you can find her works and they were not taken down.

Not much is known about her death, but it was definitely not related to the old age. Her friends and family kept their mouths shut, likely to preserve her reputation. One does not simply hide a death of natural causes.

Date of Birth: December 18, 1991
Date of Death: March 12, 2019
Timeframe: 1991 – 2019

Cause of Death: Unknown
Age: 27

3Violet Rain (Jazmine Nicole Dominguez)

The life of this 19-year old angel did not even kick into a full gear before it was wasted away. According to various reports, she has overdosed in one of the Hollywood clubs. As soon as her condition went from questionable to dire, Violet was taken to the Boyle Heights hospital. At that point she was already unconscious and fell into coma.

Unfortunately, things did not improve for Violet and she has passed away more than a week later. The brains were declared dead and it was a game-over at that point.

Date of Birth: July 1, 1999
Date of Death: March 15, 2019
Timeframe: 1999 – 2019

Cause of Death: Overdose
Age: 19

2Riley Evans (Brittney Ellebracht)

While just as tragic, Riley had a chance to retire from porn before passing away. Her last activity on social sites were back in 2017, and then it went downhill. While one can only speculate the reasons for her sudden absence from the Internet, we do know one thing.

She has been fighting cancer for some time now, which is the main reason behind her diminishing health. Only the “cool kids” will remember her, as Riley appeared in porn close to 15 years ago.

Date of Birth: June 3, 1986
Date of Death: March 26, 2019
Timeframe: 1986 – 2019

Cause of Death: Breast cancer
Age: 32

1Jessica Jaymes (Jessica Redding)

Jumping to adult business in the middle of 2002 and with female performers only, Jessica Redding picked a lover’s name to be used as her last. That’s the origin of this alias. You must’ve watched a video or two of this phenomenal pornstar or heard of the Spizoo pornographic studio that Jessica helped to find.

This story truly sucks as it was the ex-husband who has found Jessica dead. He entered the apartment on September 17 and there was nothing he or doctors could do. We don’t know the cause of her death but there are stories of constant seizures that Jessica James have had through the years.

Date of Birth: March 8, 1979
Date of Death: September 17, 2019
Timeframe: 1979 – 2019

Cause of Death: Pending
Age: 40

That’s the list so far. Hopefully, these are the only names.


  1. They died earlier because of the bad choices and the bad friends they chose to have. Lack of God in their lives. Bad choices..bad fate. Lot of jobs around but the ” easy money ” has a disgraceful fate.

    • There are many pornstars who live fulfilling lives man. Some religious people suffer horrible fates as well. We just don’t hear about them.

    • Well, I did a total:

      Cancer 3
      Overdose 12
      Old age 2
      Alcohol 1
      Suicide 3
      Infection 1
      Asthma 2
      Murder 1

      Twelve were related to causes not related to choice: murder, asthma, infection, suicide, old and cancer. So, no, it has nothing to do with “a lack of God” in their lives. It has nothing to do with “choice”. Hugo obviously just ran in here and posted a bunch of his favorite preconceptions about porn models. If anything, this list shows us just how many good Christians probably die from alcohol, bar fights, and tobacco. It happens to everyone.

      There is, obviously, one thing to take away here: drugs as addiction are BAD. The industry should be trying to wean these women off hard drug use when they see it.

  2. I’m scared for my wifey she been doing porn for over 4 yrs . She aren’t the same person she use to be …All we do is drugs, fuck,

    What’s next only god knows🚬💣💉💊🎭⌛⚰️….u gotta to dose. Its a sad life to live..R.I.P 2 every1 of you .😥

  3. Education and desire to make money in what ever your interested in can make you shit loads of money. porn pay anit shit man they think it is they rave about 500 1000 a day that anit nothing big deal . I made 10 times more than that owning car shops selling race engines and tires to the public

  4. Is sad that the same people the work with them give them all that stupid drugs. That you girl who died in a club for overdose is mean that was her firsts time taking it. Is so sad and I feel so bad because in this country is not a law the penalize who share iligal drugs to another person
