LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Famous adult star Olivia Nova reportedly died on January 7, 2018, lying naked from the waist down. It has been five years of the tragic death of the porn star. Nova, known initially as Lexi Forde, was just 20 years old when she died. However, it was found that she had bruises on her leg and was positioned face-down on a bed. 

According to Daily Star, the police wondered if it was an unnatural death and eventually called the homicide detectives. Later, the postmortem report suggested there was no scope for speculation as it was a case of an infection turning into sepsis. Her friends also reported to the police that she was requested to turn sober from drugs by doctors months before her death.

Meanwhile, Nova's friend Jimmie Romero told Mirror Online, "Lexi knew her days were limited, she was told in October by doctors. She was at a friend's house trying to get sober. She had three days off of everything. She said she wanted to change her lifestyle - she looked in my eyes and said to me, 'I want to stop and change my life. I have a family that loves me.'" He further added Nova decided not to seek medical treatment to battle her addiction. However, she chose to help another friend who was "heading down a dangerous path." "Even though her friend would never forgive her for giving a statement, Lexi had to try to help save her life. I am indebted to Lexi for her selfless act. She passed trying to save others and I believe that's the stuff saints are made of," Romero said.

Romero also stated, "If there is a heaven, I hope you're smiling and all the pain is gone. Sleep easy my friend." He added, "My love, respect always... You will never be forgotten."

Nova had also gotten into a major accident in 2014 that harmed her face which happened after she got drunk and drove a snowmobile. She had shared a picture of her on her social media account and captioned it, "So thankful to be alive. Thank you for all of your prayers everyone, I hope you all take it to heart when I say it's never going to be worth it to drink and drive. I easily could've lost my life or taken another this morning."

Before her death, she had lost her best friend in 2016 in a suicide and her boyfriend also died in 2017 due to heroin overdose. She wrote on social media after losing her boyfriend, "My boyfriend killed himself 2 days before my birthday in April on H, that's not cool to poke at.. not over him," reported Mirror.

Another friend named Taylor Johnson stated, "Her lifestyle kinda changed drastically in the last year and I know she was recently feeling pressure about her busy upcoming schedule, and believe her and her new boyfriend might've been arguing. She spent Christmas alone. I haven't seen her in a few years, but we kept in touch through social media."

After Nova died, Coroner Frye, one of her family friends, said, "It's just a devastating loss for all us. We are hoping people would donate to help pay for the funeral costs as Leslie doesn't have any money to do it herself. I was a close friend to Lexi before she left Minnesota where she is from, and I am hoping we can get all the support we can for her," reported Mirror. They had also set up a GoFundMe campaign to meet the funeral expenses.

The campaign note suggested, "On the morning of January 7, 2018, heaven gained an angel as Lexi Rose Forte, 20 years old, passed away unexpectedly in Las Vegas. She leaves behind so many loved ones including her mom, Leslie, her 17-year-old brother David and her 7-year-old sister, Macie. Leslie must now travel to Las Vegas to sort through and pack Lexi’s belongings, retrieve Lexi’s beloved dog, Rocko, and finally, bring Lexi back home to Minnesota."

Further, it added, "As you can imagine, travel costs are adding up quickly in addition to the funeral expenses that no parent should have to ever endure. How they’re going to pay for all of this is the last thing the family should have to worry about. For those that have had the unfortunate experience of planning a funeral, you know that this won’t come close to covering the expenses. But it’s a start and we're hoping that with the incredible force of ones that love Lexi, we can raise more so that all funeral & burial expenses are covered."

It continued, "We are asking that friends and loved ones of Lexi rally together to support her family during this time of need whether it be by prayer, good vibes or a monetary donation. Please, share this link and join us to support Lexi’s family in this most unbearable time. For those of you in Minnesota, we are scheduling a benefit in honor of Lexi to continue to aid in the emotional and financial support of Leslie and their family. Details of this will be shared here once they’re finalized."

The note concluded by stating, "The family continues to be overwhelmed by the love and support received over the past few days. We appreciate those that have shared a continue to share this campaign so that we can support the family during this devastating time. We do ask that you continue to respect the family and their privacy. Please know that we will not be responding to media requests. Lastly, we ask that you speak of Lexi and her family with nothing but grace, compassion and respect. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Truly."
