The death of the adult film star happened after she was criticized on the social media. Reports claim that she refused to work with men who have also appeared in gay pornography and received a lot of flak.
She wrote on Twitter saying,
whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know. BS is all I can say🤷🏽♀️ Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? #ladirect I do my homework for my body🤓✏🔍
