Porn star ‘wanted to turn her life around and get sober’

Olivia Nova (pictured) was found dead in Las Vegas on January 7 from circumstances that have to be disclosed

A close friend to a recently deceased porn star insisted that the starlet was trying to turn her life around and ‘get’ sober before her untimely death last week. 

On January 7, 20-year-old Olivia Nova, born Lexi Forde, was found dead in Las Vegas  from circumstances that have to be disclosed. 

Jimmie Romero, a close friend of Nova’s, said that she reached out to friends to help sort out her life in the days leading up to her death.   

‘Lexi knew her days were limited, she was told in October by doctors,’ Romero said in an interview with the Mirror Online earlier this week. 

‘She was at a friend’s house trying to get sober. She had three days off of everything. She said she wanted to change her lifestyle – she looked in my eyes and said to me, ‘I want to stop and change my life. I have a family that loves me.”’

The exact nature of Nova’s alleged problems remain unclear.  

Having been sober himself for 14 years, Romero said that he pleaded with Nova to seek medical assistance and a stint at a rehab facility to detox. 

Unfortunately, Romero said, circumstances led to her young life being snuffed out just after the new year.

‘If there is a heaven, I hope you’re smiling and all the pain is gone. Sleep easy my friend,’ Jimmie added. ‘My love, respect always… You will never be forgotten.’     

Nova’s death came less than a year after her boyfriend committed suicide. In a tweet earlier in December, she said he killed himself two days before her birthday in April.   

Nova started acting in pornographic films in March of 2017.

‘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,’ LA Direct Models said, according to XBIZ.com.  

Derek Hay, owner of LA Direct Models which signed Nova in December 2016, described her as a ‘sweet, mild-mannered girl’.  

‘It’s very very sudden, she was really a sweet, mild mannered girl, we’re very saddened by her death, she was only 20,’ he told DailyMail.com.

Hay said Olivia had only been signed up to LA Direct Models for two months and she had been in the porn industry for just a year.

‘We sent her to shoot in Prague and Paris which she completed, returning from that trip just a few days prior to Christmas. I have been speaking to Olivia regularly, she lives in Vegas, my office is in Vegas. She wanted to move from one agency to my own and we met several times to discuss the possibility of doing that.’

Hay says Nova died at a private residence in Vegas but not her own place and there was indication she was depressed despite tweeting she was spending the holidays alone.  

Nova is the fourth porn star to die in recent months.  August Ames, 23, committed suicide on December 6 while Turi Luv died in August from a drug overdose. 

Shyla Stylez, 35, died in November and her cause of death is still unknown.
