Amber Rayne Dies

Rayne, whose real name was Meghan Wren, collapsed at her Sun Valley residence Saturday while a friend was present, the assistant chief of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, Ed Winter, told the Los Angeles Times. Rayne was pronounced dead at 3:15 p.m.

A toxicology report is pending. Rayne’s death was reported as a possible accident or overdose.

Rayne had been working in the adult film industry for the last decade, racking up nearly 500 credits before retiring in 2015. The list of actors she worked with included James Deen, who she had recently accused of sexual assault along with four other women. Rayne came forward with an incident that occurred many years ago in support of her fellow female adult film stars even though she and Deen had since developed a friendship.

“I’ve gotten to know him on many different levels,” Rayne told The Daily Beast at the time. “There’s a friendship that’s developed. I don’t want to betray or lose that, but at the same time this did happen, and it happened to other people that I know and love.”

“We’re friends now and I’ll sometimes bring it up as a joke and you can see it makes him physically uncomfortable when I do, so he does realize something was wrong that day,” Rayne added. “I thought it was an insecurity phase. He was just starting out, he was still a young punk kid coming in and I still didn’t know what the game was.”

Outside of the adult film industry, Rayne owned a horse farm, where she rode dressage and taught horseback riding lessons.
