Writing on his private Twitter account, Kyle said that White’s cause of death was drugs related after he failed to “kick the habit.”

Kyle wrote: “No matter how hard you try to show someone there’s a better life without drugs they don’t seem to care… it’s too hard to kick the habit and for that mindset I lost a really close friend of mine,’ Kyle wrote online.”

White’s funeral took place last week and he was cremated, added Kyle.

The performer began his career at the age of 21 and over the past four years starred in more than 20 productions, and made appearances at numerous Pride events.

BSB producer Shannon Prewitt called him a “wonderful person.”

Prewitt said: “It’s something we’re pretty sad about because he was a wonderful person. Some people have true illnesses that they just can’t seem to get away from. Unfortunately, it just got the best of him.”

Fellow BSB star Ryan Fields said: “He was one of the first models I’ve ever worked with and that was four-and-a-half years ago. He was truly a cool guy. A great friend and person to be around.

“I’m gonna miss him. Not a lot of people make a mark in your life, but for me he sure did. Great model, great guy, and he deserved a full life. He had a smile and shine that stood out.”

The news comes a week after gay porn star Dave Slick was discovered dead at 26.
