It has been confirmed that the award-winning gay and straight porn star Alexander Gustavo has died, it is being reported, from a self-inflicted gunshot. His body was found by fellow adult star Jaxton Wheeler. He was living in Las Vegas, Nevada at the time of his death.
Speaking to Str8GayPorn Wheeler who found Gustavo on the 17th December said,
“I’ve never seen something like that in person before,
“I’ve lost friends, but for it to be my best friend; he was like my brother. We really enjoyed working together…he looked out for me and I looked out for him.
“To know that he didn’t say one thing to me, didn’t reach out, [and] to find him with his girlfriend and her son following right behind me. It just keeps playing over and over in my head.”
The 33-year-old had started his career in the adult industry in 2012 and worked with a number of gay porn studios including Men, Kink, and NextDoor.
