The pornographic director and producer, whose marriage to 23-year-old Ames was kept relatively private, issued a statement to Adult Video News, a website focused on the adult entertainment industry.

Porn actress August Ames has died. She was born in the Canadian town of Antigonish in Nova Scotia, but grew up in Colorado. Most girls do not shot with the guys who have shot gay porn for their safety and she can not put her body at risk.
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.
Ames' death follows a controversial tweet she posted on Sunday warning fellow adult film stars that her scene partner had done gay porn.
I don't have anything to apologize for! Apologising for taking extra steps to ensue that my body stays safe? F*** you guys for attacking me when none of my intentions were malicious.
"I think it's hilarious that your discriminating against a man who does/did gay porn when half of this industry has performed with such performers", she wrote. "Someone who I liked and would have even called a friend", wrote Albrite.
The tweet drew the ire of many of her colleagues, with both male and female actors weighing in.
August's grieving brother James, who lives in Canada, said he was struggling to deal with the news of his sister's death.
"August Ames was bullied horrendously for the past 24 hrs for standing up for her rights to choose who she works with", she tweeted.
"The scene will be posted at a more appropriate time, as we come to terms with this devastating loss". Thank you for your impact in this world.
Shortly after the tweet went up, Ames was hit with claims of being homophobic. You will be very missed on this saddest of days.
