Roman Ragazzi, Gay Porn Star And Israeli Military Trainer, Commits Suicide

Dror Barak, a 38-year-old former gay-porn star who performed under the name Roman Ragazzi, took his own life this past Saturday.

Back in 2007, the New York Post outed Barak for leading a double life as an employee of the Israeli consulate and as a gay porn star. He was subsequently fired from the consulate.

Later in the year, Barak/Ragazzi seemed to come to terms with his new life as a gay man, starting a personal training company called Freedom Fitness.

GayPornBlog.com broke the story yesterday, confirming with multiple industry insiders. The blog also spoke with Raging Stallion head Chris Ward, who had some kind words and high praise for Barak:

“He was probably the hottest man I have ever filmed,” eulogized Ward. “A massive man of pure beauty, intelligence and kindness. He was perfect in every possible way.”

The musclebound hunk was recently featured in an Out magazine photo shoot alongside Calvin Klein beau Nick Gruber and Marc Jacobs’ ad-exec ex-boy Lorenzo Martone.

Rest in peace, Dror.
