Gay Porn Performer Mehran Chestnut (A.K.A. 'King B') Has Died

Gay porn performer and reality series star Mehran Chestnut was found dead in an Atlanta hotel room on September 4. 

Project Q reports:

A 25-year-old gay Atlanta man and adult entertainer was found dead inside a Midtown hotel room on Sept. 4, just days after sharing with friends that he lost his job and was suffering from seizures. 

Mehran Chestnut was discovered nude and on the floor of a room in the Hyatt Atlanta Midtown by the man he met online the night before, according to an Atlanta police incident report. After the two connected online on Sept. 3, the man picked Chestnut up from his home and the pair went to the hotel on 10th Street.

"[The man] stated that they both fell asleep around 12:30 a.m. and when he woke up, he tried to wake Mr. Chestnut but he was not responding," according to the incident report. The man then called 9-1-1.

Chestnut was found about 6:30 a.m. holding a bottle of Black Max poppers, according to the incident report. A cause of death has not been determined pending the results of toxicology results, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner. But police are not treating Chestnut's death as a homicide. 

Chestnut, who identifies as Kb Love on Facebook, suffered from seizures, according to posts from friends and family members. And he shared text messages with a friend in late August disclosing that he suffered from grand mal seizures, which can include a loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions and are often caused by epilepsy.

Warnings for some poppers indicate that a side effect can include grand mal seizures.

Chestnut performed in gay adult films under the name King B, according to St8UpGayPorn (very NSFW), and worked with various studios including Raging Stallion and Next Door Ebony. 

He was also featured on the web based reality series, Tha Life Atlanta. Series creator George Smith produced this tribute video for Chestnut: 

Our condolences go out to Mehran's family and friends.

Didn't Jesus say love one another, and that judgment is the sole province of God? Please stop telling people they'll go to hell or heaven-- you don't know--only Good does. It's sinful to presume the powers of God, and a direct affront to God and the teachings of Jesus.

It's obvious searching for love & hopelessness can lead you to do some despite things...  Know your worth,  Love yourself &  know who you are in God will keep you grounded...  This story made me cry!!!  I want all of us to learn how to be kind to people who share our struggle & also to those who are so different...  You may get something better out of life... Mehran death isn't in vain...  He taught me to stop wookin pa nub...

No, but there's a special place for you there for being a judgmental hate-mongerer. It's not too late for you to repent and come out of the closet. Your repression is showing...
