Porn Starlet Olivia Lua Dies in Hospital

West Hollywood, Calif — Adult film performer and AVN ‘Hottest newcomer’ nominee Olivia Lua has died about 24 hours into a stint at an in-patient treatment facility in California.

Porn star Olivia Lua dies in rehab

Olivia Lua had admitted herself to the rehabilitation facility seeking treatment for an undisclosed mental health issue, says a friend close to the performer.  A source close to Lua claims the young star had relapsed and was seeking help.  She passed away this morning of an as-yet-unidentified cause while checked in to the facility, which suggests that the caregivers may have erred in their treatment regime.

The Philadelphia native, who also used the stage name Olivia Voltaire, was aged 23.

According to a statement from LA Direct Models, the troubled performer “had not been available for work since early October of last year, as she had been facing some personal challenges that had seen her in residential rehab for a period of nearly three months and from which she had been out for about a month, hoping to make a return to work in the early part of this year.”

“Family and close friends relate they had a deep concern at the volume of prescription drugs prescribed to Olivia and the danger this posed her if this was mixed with recreational drugs or alcohol,” wrote LA Direct.

We extend our deepest condolences to Olivia’s friends and family.

    Wonder how soon it will be before the powers that be decide to get involved in all these porn star deaths? Legislation to raise the age from 18 to 21? Legislation to require a mental health evaluation before a performer can enter the industry? Lots of possibilities…

    The powers that be aren’t doing anything. Have you been watching the news lately? Porn stars are the butt of every joke and at best a presidential concubine, they don’t even see them as human. Also she was 23, raising entry to 21, this still could have happened.

    What the hell is going on here? This is three people either currently in the biz or having just left it very recently, August Ames from suicide precipitated by cruel harassment because she wouldn’t fuck a crossover talent, Olivia Lua likely from alcoholism and according to Kelli in another recent article possibly drug abuse/addiction (the voluminous amount of prescriptions could have been medically necessary so we can’t say for sure about any drug addiction she may have had — I have a big bag of pills prescribed appropriately myself to treat bipolar disorder, congestive heart failure, pain from a severe back injury and a couple of other less severe things — I quit drinking alcohol many years ago or I might have been dead by now, too); we don’t know what Olivia Nova died from. Even during the boom era where every young woman that fucked herself up on drugs seemed to be getting into porn we didn’t have three pass on in little more than one month.

    I don’t know if it is fair to add Yurizan Beltran’s name to the list as she hadn’t performed in a while but if you do that is four dead, all age 35 or under in about five weeks!

    May August, Yurizan, Olivia and Olivia RIP and may no more porn chickies die this year.
