LOS ANGELES — Former gay adult star Roman Ragazzi, 38, has taken his own life. The news broke on Sunday and was confirmed by his partner, Sam, who cited “personal depression issues” as a likely cause.

Ragazzi, whose real name was Dror Barak, was an Israeli consulate employee when he first broke into the adult industry in 2007. He made headlines when the New York Post exposed his double life on Page Six.

Ragazzi went on to become Raging Stallion’s man of the Year 2008 and signed on as a company exclusive. He quit porn later that year to launch a personal training and fitness company named Freedom Fitness.  

GayPornBlog.com was first to report the story and spoke with Raging Stallion President Chris Ward, who said, “He was probably the hottest man I have ever filmed — a massive man of pure beauty, intelligence and kindness. He was perfect in every possible way.”
