Gay porn star Kyle Dean was reportedly found dead at the age of 21. The cause of his death is currently unclear. Dean, whose real name is Brandon Chrisan, was reportedly found dead on September 28 last month. The Texan-born actor is known to have starred in dozens of porn videos for the likes of Corbin Fisher and GayHoopla.

According to the Daily Mail, the Austin native's death comes in the wake of several run-ins with the law. He had allegedly gotten into trouble with the police on several occasions in the past three years and was arrested in February 2017 on contempt of court and violation of probation charges.

Before these arrests, he had also reportedly been taken in on drug and burglary charges multiple times but was later released to his mother. He was also charged with the possession of drugs, with his rap sheet in Florida including possession of Xanax and marijuana, as well as burglarizing cars. The South Florida Gay News stated that the 21-year-old had been ordered by the 12th Circuit Court to participate in a drug intervention program.

He was described amongst netizens as a 'gay-for-pay' performer and always seemed to find himself in monetary troubles. He allegedly used to ask for financial assistance for everything from Uber rides to Amazon wishlist gifts.

Dean apparently deleted all of his social media accounts, though that did not stop copycats from starting several in his name. That extended to his death as well, with some scammers trying to take advantage of his passing by setting up a fake GoFundMe page that requested donations to pay for his funeral. However, the page was reported and later taken down.

While the cause of his death is unknown, it's speculated that it was drug-related and something to do with his addiction, a struggle he's been dealing with for a long time. The death was initially just a rumor that was stoked by a fan who wrote on his Instagram page, "For a long time this kid was my brother and was truly my first best friend [sic]. Rest easy young king thanks for the unforgettable memories." However, his passing was then confirmed by family members and friends who said he died of a suspected overdose.

According to his obituary, the 21-year-old lived in Bradenton, Florida, for 15 years and attended Freedom Elementary, Haile Middle School, and Braden River High School. He leaves behind his parents and seven half-siblings, with a 'Celebration of Life' ceremony scheduled to be held at the Toale Brothers Funeral Home located at 912 53 rd Avenue West, Bradenton, Florida 34207 on Saturday, October 13, from 2 pm to 4 pm. The family has asked mourners to donate to the 'The Pinnacle Academy PTO' in his name.
