Late porn star Dakota Skye ‘stalked by demons’

Article content

To her family, she was sweet, loveable Lauren Scott.

But to the world at large she was raunchy porn queen Dakota Skye.

Her short life ended on June 9 in Los Angeles in the RV she called home. While so far no cause of death has been released, she had struggled for years with drug and alcohol addictions.

She was 27.

She died just two years after her mother died in similar circumstances.

Her devastated aunt, Linda Arden, told The UK Sun Dakota had an upbringing that was “dysfunctional” and from childhood she was surrounded by drugs, booze and sexual abuse.

“Her real life story and how she came to be in that industry, has truly been a tragedy,” her aunt told the tabloid. “She died almost exactly two years after her mother — my baby sister’s — death, which was caused by addiction and alcoholism.”

She added: “Lauren was a product of a highly dysfunctional family involving drugs, alcohol, physical, emotional, verbal and sexual abuse.”

Dakota had herself been battling the bottle and a grim fentanyl addiction in the desperate days before she died.

Originally from Tampa, Florida, Skye entered the sexxx-rated business in 2013 and captured the industry’s Best New Starlet Award in 2015.

Over her career, she appeared in more than 300 videos, including Bubble Gum Girls, Daddy Please 7 and When Girls Play 2.

But her life was fast unraveling. She lost two grandparents to COVID-19 over the past year and became homeless. She was also estranged from her husband.

The final straw came when she was unmercifully trolled after posing topless in front of a mural honoring George Floyd who was infamously murdered by a Minneapolis cop.

“She did say she had been bullied online — mainly from others within the porn industry, girls trying to bring other girls down as they try to get ahead,” Arden said.

Dakota captioned the controversial image: “Happy #GeorgeFloyd day in #santabarbara <3 #dakotaskye equality&fair treatment for all. Dope mural.”

But one Instagram user responded: “Yikes, not a good look.”

Another added: “Wtf what does flashing have to do with George Floyd’s death?”

Dakota tried to make amends but to no avail.

“She was stalked by demons like no one will ever understand unless you’ve lived it,” her aunt said. “I loved her unconditionally and I just wanted happiness for her.

“She no longer has to walk through this world in pain in her own prison and that gives me comfort to know she no longer has to fight the voices and images that haunted her,” Arden said.

She added: “She was the sweetest girl. She lived with me when she was a baby. She loved her family. All of her money she gave back to help her mom and brothers.

“Really all she was doing was searching for love, someone to care about her,” Arden said.
