Gay adult film star Tyler Roberts has died


Eric Hazen, better known by his screen name Tyler Roberts, died on December 3, his partner has confirmed.


On November 14, Hazen’s boyfriend, Aaron Thomas, announced on social media that Hazen had suffered heart failure and was in the ICU “fighting for his life.”


“Our funny, sweet, sassy, gentle giant, Eric Hazen, has fallen into critical condition while on vacation in Palm Springs. He’s currently battling for his life in the ICU, facing heart, liver, and kidney failure, among other dangerous ailments”, the GoFundMe page read.



Sadly, on Saturday (December 3), Thomas took to social media again to announce Roberts’s passing.

“I am so heartbroken to share that my love [Tyler Roberts] passed away yesterday. His family and I are grieving as Eric left a huge space behind that can’t easily be fixed. Lead with love and tell everyone you can you love them as if it’s the last. I love you Bubba. Rest now,” he wrote.

Thomas said that Roberts had “helped me grow and evolve in ways I didn’t know I was capable of…Thank you for seeing me as I am in full and thank you for letting me love you as you are.”

Adding, “I’m so grateful to have known a love like yours.”



Roberts, who made his gay porn debut in 2008, had been vacationing in Palm Springs when he began experiencing organ failure, according to Edge Media.

He had been hospitalized in the ICU in Palm Springs and his recovery seemed to improve around November 28, but sadly things got worse again.


GoFundMe for hospital and other expenses is being managed by his family. It currently has a little over $13,000 of its $30,000 goal.
