SECOND PORN STAR LARA, 18, HAS HIV.
A SECOND porn star, thought to be just 18-years-old, has HIV in a health crisis which threatens to shut down the US sex film industry.
Lara Roxx, who has only been working in adult films for three months, had performed with Darren James who revealed on Thursday that he has the virus.
Her agent Daniel Perreault said: "Lara is devastated.
"She thought the adult film industry was a glamorous business and would open the doors to the legitimate movie business in Hollywood.
"Instead, she now feels that she has been handed a death sentence."
He said he had warned Canadian Lara not to go to Los Angeles to work in the industry because she was not ready for it. Other actresses James has come into contact with are being tested. He is the first US porn film star to get the virus in four years of compulsory testing.
Lara performed with two other male stars. One of them Maxxx Black has been quarantined and cannot work while further tests are carried out. It is feared another actress Rayveness may have caught the virus.
In total 45 actors are banned from filming until test results are back.
Sex star Mary Carey, who ran for governor in California last year, said: "It's very scary. This is kind of a wake-up call for everybody."
