Natasha Blu Death Confirmed

LOS ANGELES—Short-term adult performer Natasha Blu, who was rumored within industry circles last week to have passed away, died almost exactly one month ago, on May 8, AVN has confirmed. She was 23.

According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, Blu's death was ruled a suicide by gunshot.

Blu accumulated a total of eight scene credits during her brief time in the industry, all during 2017, according to IAFD.com. Those credits included titles from Wicked Pictures, Evil Angel and Kink.com. Originally from Apple Valley, California, her interests included art, dance, the gym and attending raves, and she studied psychology as a college undergraduate. She was no longer performing in adult at the time of her passing.

While she was active, Blu was represented by talent agency Society 15, whose Randy Quintana told AVN, "We are extremely saddened to hear of Natasha Blu's passing. Natasha was a fun loving, animated, happy person who loved life and loved her community. During her time with us she was eager, upbeat and positive.
