Adult film star Shyla Stylez has died.
According to reports, the AVN Hall of Famer died in her sleep at her mother’s home in British Colombia, Canada on Thursday (Dec. 9). She was just 35 years old.
At press time, the cause of death was unknown.
“We have so many great memories of working with her and hanging out with her and we want to hold onto and remember the good times,” said longtime publicist James Bartholet. “We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Shyla and our condolences go out to her family in this very sad time. She went quietly with no pain and we know she’s in a better place.”
Born in the small town of Armstrong, BC, Stylez first entered the biz back in 2000 at the age of 19, working up to 2016 and amassing more than 500 film credits. She was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2016, upon retirement.
