August Ames, 23, was a rising star in the adult industry, appearing in more than 270 X-rated films and bagging award nominations for her performances. She earned a nomination in 2015 for AVN Best New Starlet, and was a nominee every year since for Female Performer of the Year, including in the current race for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", Ames' husband Kevin Moore said in a statement. Our hearts go out to August's friends and family during this extremely hard time.

The adult film star, who friends say was suffering from depression, had previously suffered a torrent of online abuse for declaring she wouldn't be participate in a scene with a male colleague who had previously done gay porn.

"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". I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'.
