Christina Ashten Gourkani — an OnlyFans model known for resembling Kim Kardashian — has died at the age of 34, her family revealed.
Gourkani’s family shared that the content creator died April 20 after going into cardiac arrest.
“In the early morning hours at approximately 4:31am on 4/20/2023 our family received a tragic phone call from a family member who was frantically screaming and crying hysterically on the other end of the line….Ashten is dying…Ashten is dying,” her loved ones wrote a statement Tuesday. “A phone call that instantly shattered our world and will forever haunt our family for the rest of our lives.”
The family added that the model suffered from cardiac arrest following a “medical procedure that took a turn for the worse,” which is now being investigated.
Cardiac arrest is the abrupt loss of heart function, resulting from a problem with the heart’s electrical system, according to the Mayo Clinic. This disrupts the heart’s pumping action and stops blood flow through the body.
Gourkani’s family is now raising money to cover her medical and funeral costs, garnering more than $4,000 as of Wednesday. They said they are “grateful” for the support they’ve received and said Gourkani “will forever be our guardian angel.”
