GAY PORN STAR ROMAN RAGAZZI CONFIRMED DEAD AFTER SUICIDE
Horrible, shocking news began circulating Twitter and Facebook today that gay porn legend Roman Ragazzi, aged 38, took his own life on
Saturday, February 25th Thursday night. UPDATE: Dror’s boyfriend has confirmed the sad news and asks that people be respectful.
Roman, whose real name was Dror Barak, started doing gay porn in 2007. Soon after signing on as a Raging Stallion exclusive, the former Israeli military trainer found himself in the middle of a gay porn scandal as the New York Post’s Page Six outed him for working at the Israeli consulate, forcing him to resign. Later that year, he started a personal training and fitness company called Freedom Fitness.
Although he stopped doing porn in 2008, Roman recently appeared in a fashion spread along side gay porn stars Nick Gruber and Blu Kennedy in the January issue of Out Magazine entitled “New York’s Finest”.
Devastated by the news, Raging Stallion head Chris Ward (who named Roman Raging Stallion’s Man of the Year in 2008) 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.”
UPDATE: We received a note from Dror’s boyfriend Sam who confirmed the sad news and asked that people be respectful with regards to Dror’s privacy in the comments.
Details are mostly personal depression issues.
His business was doing amazingly well and was expanding rapidly and he was so busy he literally could not take any more clients on himself he had to hire more trainers. So it had nothing to do with that. I only say this because he was so proud of his business and I was so proud of him for being such a hard worker and building a business with dedicated top level personal training clients.
Despite what anyone thinks Dror was a loving kind person and anyone that would comment and say he wasn’t just probably misinterpreted his shyness as meanness. He was the most gentle, loving, kind, amazing man I have ever met.
