Kent North Dead Of Overdose

San Francisco-based gay porn company Hot House revealed today (NSFW/sound) that top star Kent North, 33, died yesterday of an apparent drug overdose. North, a "lifetime exclusive" for Hot House, starred in 13 films for the company since joining in 2004. He recently won several industry awards and this year served as cohost at the Grabby Awards, a gay porn version of the Oscars held in Chicago during IML.

Hot House president Steven Scarborough expressed regret on behalf of the company, saying, "We are all shocked and deeply saddened. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Kent’s friends and family, especially his lover Lloyd." North was a graduate of England's Royal Naval Academy. The details surrounding his death were not disclosed.

UPDATE: Other porn sites (all NSFW) are saying North committed (possibly drug-assisted) suicide by placing a bag over his head.
