Pornstar August Ames' death came a shock to her fans, especially since it was an alleged case of suicide. However, recently exposed text messages she shared with her friend, Keisha Grey, who is also an adult star, revealed that she may have been depressed.
23-year-old August had reportedly died on Tuesday in California, and while there was no indication of foul play, her husband wanted to keep his mourning and the details of her death private. Just a few hours before committing suicide she had tweeted, “f*** y’all”.
August was also engaged in a heated battle of words a few days ahead of her death, over a seemingly homophobic post she had tweeted.
This was the Tweet that sparked the outrage:
The backlash that followed this tweet and the accusations of being homophobic despite being attracted to girls herself, could have been what drove August into depression. What we do know for a fact, now, is that she was in fact depressed.
Keisha, who is mourning the death of her dear friend tweeted a screenshot of the conversation she shared with the two-time Adult Video News Award winning porn-star.
In it August reveals that she was depressed and that people were being "d**ks":
