His mother confirmed his passing with a post on social media.

Shawn Paul Bertrand Jr., also known as gay adult performer Shawn Wolfe, has died at the age of 35. The cause of death was reportedly a drug overdose on December 27.

A woman named Valerie Wellner posted on his Facebook profile thanking fans for the outpouring of support. She wrote:

"Shawn was a light in this world and he is now a light in Heaven. He is with his Kiki- grandma, who passed away last March. He is also with all of his friends and family who went before him. As most of you know, Shawn passed away from a drug overdose on December 27th."

Wellner, who claims to be Wolfe's mother, noted that he was at someone else's home during the night of his passing. Alas, the family doesn't exactly know where he was or who he was with. She added that there was no blame, but that some of his personal belongings still needed to be retrieved and asked for help in getting them home.

Meanwhile, the last picture on Wolfe's Instagram account (@shawnwolfers) shows him smiling next to a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve.

Though a caption was not written for this post, the comments section is flooded with grief at his passing. Most commenters remember him as a kind and loving human who has gone from this earth too soon.

Wolfe first gained attention in 2009 under the pseudonym Drew for a solo scene for the Sean Cody production company. His blond hair, muscular figure, and versatility helped him gain popularity. His career also saw him filming scenes for the Falcon, Hot House, and Raging Stallion adult film studios. In 2013, Raging Stallion awarded him the title of "Man of the Year."

After her initial statement, Wellner returned to Wolfe's Facebook profile with a new post, writing:

"I am deeply grateful and thankful for the people who have responded and reached out to help us understand where Shawn was, and what happened. I am also grateful that we will be able to retrieve some of his personal items. You have no idea how much that means to his family. We so appreciate your support and prayers. Thank you."
