August Ames dies dead at 23 - How did porn star die?

Exclusive Details	Instagram

Pornstar August Ames has died aged 23.

But the Canadian died on Tuesday in California, according to the Ventura County Medical Examiner's office.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", her husband, director Kevin Moore, told industry trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN), which first reported news of her death. He also requested for privacy during this hard time.

As the reason of her death Tuesday was unknown at the time, some of Ames' friends reportedly claimed that she might have committed suicide as she was suffering from depression.

Born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1994, Ames had found her way to the adult-film industry in 2013 following short stint in the food service industry as a bartender.

Ames, who had appeared in more than 270 films, said that medical testing was different for gay porn to straight porn, which is why she didn't want to take part. She had also won AVN awards twice and was nominated for the Female Performer of the Year award at the 2018 AVN Awards, to be held in January 2018.

'NOT homophobic, ' she said in response to the accusations. 'Most girls don't shoot with guys who have shot gay porn, for safety.

Suggesting that the backlash may have contributed to Ames taking her own life, Rossi tweeted, "A life wasted simply because HER opinion didn't mesh with YOURS".

"Omg, I can't believe she's dead", Albrite tweeted.

Ames received severe criticism on Twitter over the weekend after refusing to complete a scene with a man because he'd previously starred in gay porn, saying: "I do homework for my body". I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'.

"F-k you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious".

Health Care Agency confirmed Wednesday that Ames death was caused by asphyxia due to hanging. What the f-k ever!

Ames was remembered on social media by her fellow porn stars, including Charlie Sheen's ex-girlfriend Brett Rossi. "Someone who I liked & would have even called a friend!"

Others in the porn fraternity too took to Twitter to mourn her death.

Producer/director Jules Jordan added: "Rest In Peace to August Ames, one of the best, nicest people I ever knew in the business".
