Porn Star August Ames Dead At 23

And today her devastated husband Kevin Moore confirmed she had died later that day.

Friends of the actress tell The Blast they suspect it was a suicide.

The cause of her death is being investigated, but law enforcement said there was no indication of foul play, according to The Blast.

'Please leave this as a private family matter in this hard time, ' he added.

Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia and worked in a bar before she joined the adult film industry in 2013.

In her brief four-year-career, Ames starred in more than 270 films and nabbed a nomination for Best New Starlet at the 2015 AVN Awards.

Ames was subject to a barrage of abuse on Twitter over the weekend after saying she would not work with "crossover" gay porn actors.

She was branded as "homophobic" in the week of her death as she had refused to shoot a scene with the actor who had performed in gay porn with the other males. "BS is all I can say Do agents really not care about who they're representing?" "It's extremely unfair to be black listed because a ridiculous naive stigmatism created by unethical homophobes", Eli Hunter tweeted.

Reactions to the tweet were swift, with one user even directly asking Ames whether she was a homophobic person. That's just how it is with me.

Fellow performer Anikka Albrite wrote on Wednesday, "Omg, I can't believe she's dead".

A day later, on December 4, she expressed frustration with the criticism. #LAdirect I do my homework for my body'. F-- you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious.

Following Ames' death, some of her friends took their thoughts to social media to accuse the online bullies of encouraging her to commit suicide.

"A lovely life is GONE because people like to use their "fan base" to bully others because THEIR opinion doesn't agree with YOURS", Brett Rossi, ex-girlfriend to actor Charlie Sheen wrote on Twitter. "RIP to a sweet, kind, soul.I'm so sad & so angry".

After being accused of "discriminating" against the gay community, she added: "Sorry, it was just my opinion".
