Ex-adult star Rebecca wrote: “I’m devastated hearing the awful news of Sophie’s passing.

Who was Sophie Anderson?
Sophie Anderson was a pornographic actress, internet personality, and recording artist who had a career that spanned 6 years.
She shot to fame in the industry after a video with fellow actress Rebecca More went viral the following year.
Sophie began her career in the porn industry in 2017.
She got her big break after a video with Rebecca More went viral the following year. The duo branded themselves “The Cock Destroyers”.
Both her and More’s videos became memes and the pair were subsequently regarded as “gay icons”, which saw them go on to front the MEN.com series Slag Wars: The Next Destroyer (2020).
Anderson appeared on various podcasts discussing her life and also served as a team captain on the Canadian OutTV sex education quiz show Fucking Smart (2022–2023).
The 34-year-old was considered a major player in the LGBTQ+ community and regularly championed gay rights in her work.
She was also known for appearing on various podcasts discussing her life.
As an actress, she debuted in pornographic films such as Fake Taxi and Evil Angel in 2017.
Anderson was born on November 23, 1987, in Bristol, United Kingdom.
She had a poor upbringing while growing up. Her mom walked out on the family when she was 5, and Anderson and her younger sister were raised by their father. Anderson’s mother was emotionally abusive and would purposely buy her clothes that were too small to ridicule her about her weight.
Anderson moved to Bradford-on-Avon and said she began being sexually abused at the age of 10, knowing she could perform fellatio on men at local pubs in exchange for alcohol and drugs.
Anderson took an interest in drama and musical theatre at school and went on to attend Bath College. Whilst underage, she also worked in a massage parlor.
What happened to Oliver Spedding, Sophie Anderson’s boyfriend?
Oliver Spedding was a former footballer who played for Crystal Place and Croydon FC before quitting to become an adult star.
Sophie’s death comes after Oliver’s former club Croydon FC announced his passing and held a minute’s silence before their match on November 18.
A statement read: “Oliver played for the club over a couple of spells and was a much-loved individual who always gave his utmost effort for the team.
“Oliver will be hugely missed by everyone at the club and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”
Referring to the club’s nickname, the club added: “Rest in Peace, Ollie. Once a Tram, always a Tram.”
His cause of death has not been confirmed.
After having a career as a footballer and a stint in jail, Oliver became a painter and decorator before going into adult entertainment.
He was known in the adult industry as Damian Oliver.
In July 2022, he opened up on his experiences on the Anything Goes with James English podcast – expressing some regret about his career choice.
He revealed he was paid just £150 per movie and often regretted turning his back on a potential career at Selhurst Park.
He recalled: “That was terrifying, being on my first set.
“People used to say to me, ‘You’re doing it all anyway’, because they knew I used to sleep with girls, I was a player – and they said, ‘You might as well get paid for it’.
“But it wasn’t until I had the confidence to actually do it – it was a whole different ball game.”
He added: “When I was at Crystal Palace if I’d have stayed with them, then I could have been earning a lot more playing football.
“I used to fight as well, maybe that could have gone somewhere.
“I was good at both of those things, but being a porn star, I thought that would be just as good – but it’s not as good as people think.”
His death followed a bizarre alleged death hoax in September in which he claimed Sophie was dead.
He even posted what he claimed were details of her funeral, sparking furious denials from Sophie’s friends and fans.
Rebecca More posted online that cops had assured her Sophie was alive amid concern for her welfare.
Oliver later admitted it was a “silly drunken joke” and claimed he had spent 20 hours in a police cell because of it.
He also claimed he and Sophie had got married and were expecting a baby in a since-deleted tweet.
What was Sophie Anderson’s net worth?
Sophie Anderson earned an estimated net worth of at least $1.2 million.
