Former gay porn star Kyle Dean has died at the age of 21.

Dean, who performed in more than a dozen gay porn scenes for studios Corbin Fisher and GayHoopla in 2016 and 2017, reportedly died on September 28 but the cause of death has not been released.

The actor was born in Austin, Texas and had been arrested multiple times on drug and burglary charges.

Earlier this year, gay porn star Tyler White was found dead at the age of 25.

The BrokeStraightBoys star’s body was discovered at his mother’s home in North Providence, Rhode Island, according to friend and fellow porn star Damian Kyle.

Writing on his private Twitter account, Kyle said that White’s cause of death was drugs related after he failed to “kick the habit.”

Kyle wrote: “No matter how hard you try to show someone there’s a better life without drugs they don’t seem to care… it’s too hard to kick the habit and for that mindset I lost a really close friend of mine,’ Kyle wrote online.”

The performer began his career at the age of 21 and over the past four years starred in more than 20 productions, and made appearances at numerous Pride events.

BSB producer Shannon Prewitt called him a “wonderful person.”

Prewitt said: “It’s something we’re pretty sad about because he was a wonderful person. Some people have true illnesses that they just can’t seem to get away from. Unfortunately, it just got the best of him.”

Fellow BSB star Ryan Fields said: “He was one of the first models I’ve ever worked with and that was four-and-a-half years ago. He was truly a cool guy. A great friend and person to be around.”

Last year, porn star Max Schutler was found dead at 35.

He had worked for some of the world’s biggest gay porn studios, including Raging Stallion, Lucas Entertainment and Jet Set Men.
