Porn Star Alexander Gustavo Dead at 33
LAS VEGAS — Adult star Alexander Gustavo was found dead Saturday morning of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to his head.
Gustavo's body, according to a report from Str8UpGayPorn.com, was discovered by fellow performer Jaxton Wheeler in the Las Vegas apartment they shared.
Wheeler had just returned from a shoot in San Francisco at Kink when he found his friend's body.
The 33-year-old Gustavo, who identified as bisexual, leaves behind a son and girlfriend.
Gustavo performed in nearly four dozen gay features and scenes in his four years in porn. He worked for Falcon Studios, Men.com, Next Door Entertainment, Hothouse Entertainment and KinkMen.com, among others. Gustavo also did bisexual porn work for Mile High Media.
Over the weekend, Wheeler tweeted: “The industry lost one if its great people today. @Alexanderprnstr is no longer with us.”
Falcon Studios tweeted: “Rest with the Angels, Alexander Gustavo ... you will be missed greatly. Our hearts go out to all your family and friends.”
Gay porn star Trenton Ducati said: “I just woke up to the news that my friend Alexander Gustavo passed away last night. RIP my friend. I am in tears.”
Wheeler said that he has planned for a memorial for Gustavo in Las Vegas on Monday, Jan. 17.
