What’s up, guys? TK here for Complex News.
The adult film actress Yurizan Beltran, who also went by the name Yuri Luv, has reportedly passed away at the age of 31. Dan Hogue, the director of business development for Pornstar Platinum, shared the news.
"It is with a heavy heart I write this. The entire PornStar Platinum family is in mourning at the news of the loss of one of its family members […] She was always kind to me and we will miss her.”
The cause of Beltran’s death is currently unknown, XBIZ reports.
Beltran, who was born in Los Angeles, began her career at the age of 18-years-old. She appeared on the cover of Lowrider Magazine and posed for Penthouse. She released her first official website in 2005.
Beltran appeared in dozens of projects with companies such as Brazzers, Evil Angel, New Sensations, Digital Sin, BangBros, Hustler, and Pornstar Platinum, to name a few.
Beltran’s passing comes just days following the death of adult film star August Ames.
Ames, who was 23-years-old, was born in Nova Scotia in 1994. She worked in over 120 productions and was recently nominated for Female Performer of the Year, Best Three-Way Sex Scene (Girl/Girl/Boy), and Best Group Sex Scene by Adult Video News earlier this month.
Ames encountered backlash online after she posted a tweet in which she talked about preferring not to work with male performers who have done scenes with other males.
“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. BS is all I can say Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? #ladirect I do my homework for my body”
“How am I homophobic if I myself am attracted to women? Not wanting to have sex with gay men is not homophobic; they don’t want to have sex with me either so byeeeee"
Colleagues, friends, and fans took to social media to express their grief at the news of Beltran’s passing.
“We’re devastated to hear of the passing of Yurizan Beltran. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends. RIP”
“OMG no I love her I was praying it wasn't real heard the sad news that she passed away R.I.P Yurizan Beltran”

“I just wanna say R.I.P Yurizan Beltran...another great star that will be missed”
