    QueertyA statement confirming the news was posted to Elias’ official Facebook page this afternoon following loose reports that he has a massive heart attack on a number of French websites. According to Elias’ management company, EventsLive Productions, the singer was confirmed dead in his home on February 25.

    Elias is perhaps best known as the former lead singer of ’90s French boy band Alliage, and for his solo music career that began after he relocated to New York City in 2002. According to Obnoxious TV, he worked in NYC as a television actor, a stage actor, and a fashion model for Armani and Jean Paul Gaultier. In 2008, he appeared as the mysterious “Q” on gay porn site Randy Blue (NSFW).

    Elias maintained an active Instagram account until his death—he prided himself on his natural physique, and encouraged others to exercise regularly without using performance-enhancing drugs.



    RIP.

    Death from a massive heart attack at 39yo is unheard of.

    indeed. We'll have to see what the medical reports say about his heart condition and anything in his system.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThat's really unfortunate that he died at quite a young age. In that article he made claims that he never used steroids in order to acquire his very muscular and lean body. I wonder if there's any way to confirm that he was telling the truth. Because if he was natural and he died of a heart attack at such a young age, this with shed some light on people with a possible heart defects who succumb to heart attacks at such a young age. But if tests positive for some type of anabolic steroids it would only create negative hysteria that his use contributed or is the reason why he succumbed to a heart attack at thirty-nine.



    This.

    I liked him a lot when I was a kid. When he was a singer in Alliage. Seems like french boysband singers are cursed. A few years ago the singer of 2be3 died at young age too.

    Don't know this guy, but steroids are bad.

    It would surprise me if it wasn't caused by this.

    Forgive me in my haste for the caps in the title. It sets itself up for the "Oh Noes, a PORN STAR! Who cares? Whaddabout the dead gay guy that picked up my garbage dutifully every Wednesday? Where's HIS thread?" crowd.

    The original title was "NOT A PORN STAR...", so when the pics started flying in, people would easily distinguish Elias' work from the usual Joey Bagadonuts that were known for their p0rn scenes only, before the predictable RJ screeching over Porn Star Obsessions commenced.

    Unfortunately, I totally neglected his work as "Q" or whatever in the Randy Blue series. I discounted that as "p0rn" because I think it's all solo (maybe duo?) JO scenes. But p0rn is p0rn.

    I changed the title to "KINDA PORN STAR" before getting some shuteye, but on second thought, I'm removing the caps altogether. I'll list it third as well to reduce its relevance since he has so much more content as a model.

    One more important thing in the "Department of Corrections" Wikipedia lists his birthyear as 1980. He was in a teenage boy band in the late 90s, so that jibes. Therefore other sites suggest he was EVEN YOUNGER than stated in my OP. I'll change the age to 33 unless I see a more trustworthy source.

    (UPDATE: Oddly, not long after I typed this, someone modified his Wiki page to change his birthyear to 1974. But the link is to some random blogpage so I'm sticking with "age 33" until further notice.)

    Post-boyband transformation, his work with NYC photographer Carlos Arias helped him take off on his modeling and solo singing career.

    Obnoxious TV spills some tea on what parts of his bio may have been true and which parts may have been fabrication:

    http://obnoxioustv.wordpress.com/2014/02/28/model-quentin-elias-dead-at-33-or-39-due-to-his-using-two-different-birth-dates-rumors-of-his-death-being-caused-by-an-overdose-suicide-and-that-he-was-an-escort/

    Obnoxious TVNow I know a number of you are going to be upset about this follow up on Quentin’s death. Some of you will even consider it in poor taste, but I call it getting to the truth.

    Now it is not clear if he was 33 or 39 due to his having been quoted giving two different dates for the day he was born.

    Now (of) all the other negative things that have flooded my e-mail, Facebook in-box, and text messages. I responded to (one) person’s R.I.P. Quentin Elias post on Facebook asking what was the cause of death and that I hoped it was not the case of another famous person overdosing on drugs.

    Well it seems my thoughts might be true according to the rumors I am hearing. Several people say it was an overdose and others claim that it was a case of suicide and that Quentin was extremely depressed due to a bad break up with his boyfriend that financed his wonderful life. Although, he was in great shape rumor has it that Quentin was not getting enough modeling gigs to take care of himself.


    Quentin had returned to France in the past few years, hoping to build on a more dedicated fanbase for his singing career.

    I crushed so hard on Filip Nikolic when I was growing up...

    Ummm some of you need to go do your research.

    children have died of heart failure as has every age group.

    A defect in the heart can go completely unnoticed until you suffer from heart failure and it's not found until an autopsy takes place.

    It's not just not unheard of it's pretty common to find people with heart conditions.

    Hell I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people have heart problems on this forum and don't even know anything about it.

    I have a fantastic heart though I've been fully checked out and they have found no problems at all. It's big, strong and very capable of pumping blood around. BUT I'm at an increased chance of having a heart attack and I'm only 31 Why? because I have experienced high blood pressure that went unchecked for a few years. So my heart has had to work much harder then needed for a few years just to keep the blood flowing. This has caused damage that is unseen and not completely known. I have been advised to not take part in a marathon.

    Steroids are not the only and sole cause of heart problems in the young and from all the evidence I've read it's a small percentage of people who experience heart problems from steroids but it's the one that gets the most attention.

    My niece will probably not make it to 30 and experience heart complications due to cystic fibrosis and the complications that brings about to all her organs.

    I honestly have no idea who this guy was except that he clearly did roids and had terrible music. And you can tell that he was addicted to roids simply by his build and size. When you're that addicted to them you might as well be handing yourself a noose and a chair. Kids dying of AIDS and starvation in Africa - that's tragic. Innocents dying in Ukraine cuz of bombs and shit - that's tragic. Someone dying due to overuse of steroids to look good - just plain dumb.

    Heart attacks and heart failure are not the same thing.

    ∆ I agree with this. However, there are a lot of people walking around with very low self esteems. Once our need for food and shelter is satisfied, we tend to act out our emotional issues. Some people do this through steriods to make themselves feel important, even if it's in a shallow way.
