Initial reports claimed that Ames died of hanging in her Ventura County home.

Her cause of death was unlisted by the coroner, but her pals believe Ames - who suffered from depression - took her own life.

The news of Ames' death comes just a month after the demise of another Canadian pornstar Shyla Stylez (real name Amanda Friedland).

Ames, who appeared in movies such as Beauty and the Beast XXX: An Erotic Fairy Tale Parody" and "Baby Got Boobs', began performing in 2013 and won awards from AVN.

Past year she won the 2016 Vixen Angel AVN and Cutest Newcomer in 2015.

She was also nominated for the female performer of the year award at January's AVN Awards.

She had also worked as a bartender in a tanning salon and as a yoga Zumba instructor.

Her husband and director Kevin Moore said: "She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me".

Why was she accused of homophobia in the days leading up to her death?

Ames, who had appeared in more than 270 films, said that medical testing was different for gay porn to straight porn, which is why she didn't want to take part.

Ames then discussed her current struggles with depression, talking about her need to find a "good f-cking therapist", and how hard it had been for her.

"I don't have anything to apologise for!" Apologizing for taking extra steps to [ensure] that my body stays safe? Would you say this about a girl who has done gay porn? I f-- love the gay community! What the f*** ever! #LAdirect I do my homework for my body'. "No hate", she tweeted.

Her final tweet was posted at midnight on December 5 in which she wrote "fuck y'all".

She was married to adult film director Kevin Moore, who confirmed the news of her death.

Brazzers, a pornography production based in Montreal in Canada, announced they would postpone a previously planned scene featuring Ames.

Brazzers, a porn website, tweeted its condolences to Ames' friends and family, saying it would postpone the release of a video with Ames that was scheduled for Wednesday night.

"The scene will be posted at a more appropriate time, as we come to terms with this devastating loss".

Anna Lee, a film writer, producer and director, said: "August Ames - one of the first women I had the pleasure of shooting and a handsome Canadian".
