Fellow porn star Abella Danger described Ames as 'the most kind-hearted person ever'.

It was first said that her death was a suicide, with no foul play detected, the cause of death had remained a mystery.

Ames also tweeted Monday, replying a user who told her to apologize, "I don't have anything to apologize for!" We're told toxicology tests are also being conducted while the death is investigated.

Suggesting that the backlash may have contributed to Ames taking her own life, Rossi tweeted, "A life wasted simply because HER opinion didn't mesh with YOURS".

August, 23, had received a tirade of abuse at the weekend on Twitter after saying she wouldn't work with "crossover" gay porn actors.

However, Ames said that she declined to participate in the filming because the medical testing for straight and gay men is very different.

The 23-year-old, who has appeared in more than 270 flicks, hit back at fans before passing away in Camarillo, California.

That being said, friends of Ames suspect it was a suicide, as she was prone to depression, The Blast reported. Sought after from the beginning of her career, Ames earned a nomination in 2015 for AVN Best New Starlet, and was a nominee every year since for Female Performer of the Year, including this year for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards in January. Do agents really not care about who they're representing?

On December 3, August had taken to Twitter to post: "whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews, you're shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know". That's just how it is with me.

Ames debuted in 2013 and was a two-time AVN Award-winner with more than 270 credits, according to AVN. I'm not putting my body at risk, i don't know what they do in their private lives'. Fuck you guys attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious. I f-- love the gay community! #LAdirect I do my homework for my body'.

"She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me", Ames' husband Kevin Moore said in a statement.

Adding, 'Please leave this as a private family matter in this hard time'.

She said that Ames was one of the best and nicest people she has ever known in the business.
