Adult film star Raven Alexis died last week after suffering an infection amid a long battle with Crohn’s disease. She was 35.
Adult Video News reports Alexis’ husband, whose name has not been released out of privacy concerns, confirmed the news in an Instagram post last Thursday, revealing his wife passed away at a Las Vegas hospital due to complications from Crohn’s.
“She went in Sunday night with some complications and some stomach Crohn’s/colitis issues she had dealt with, ended up getting some infection and passed away yesterday at 12:44,” he said in a video.
Alexis’ husband added, “I want all those people out there to know that she loved you all, she cared about you and I’m just so blessed to have her in my life and be a part of my life. She was the absolute world to me, the love of my life.”
Alexis started in the porn industry as an internet model, running her own membership sites at RavenAlexis.com and RavensPlayhouse.com. After signing a contract with the production company Digital Playhouse in 2009, Alexis went on to star in popular adult films including Exile Pictures’ The Graduate XXX: A Paul Thomas Parody, Third Degree Films’ The Official Revenge of the Nerds Parody and Axel Braun’s This Ain’t Ghostbusters XXX 3D.
