20 y/o porn star Olivia Nova found dead after spending Christmas alone

A 20-year-old porn star has died unexpectedly in Las Vegas after spending the holiday season alone.

Olivia Nova's body was found in her home on Sunday (local time), her former representatives LA Direct Models said in a statement.

"Alone on the holidays and want to give a fan a call," she had tweeted on Christmas Day.

"Would lift my spirits."

She joins a growing list of porn stars to die unexpectedly in recent months.

August Ames, 23, Yuri Luv, 31 and Shyla Stylez, 35, all passed away recently.

LA Direct Models said they are "beyond shocked by the sudden death."

"While only represented by Direct Models for a short period of time, we came to know Olivia as a beautiful girl with a very sweet and gentle personality.

"Another one, way too young, we are beyond shocked and most certainly, it was completely out of the blue.

"Rest in peace, sweet angel."

Nova's began her career in adult films in March 2017. Her boyfriend committed suicide less than a month later, she recently revealed on Twitter.

"My boyfriend killed himself 2 days before my birthday in April," she said in December, in response to another tweet.

In an interview with adult film director Dave Naz last year Nova spoke of her aspirations outside of the porn industry to graduate school, release an album and become involved with a "huge" non-profit project she was working on.
