Fabio Scorpion, a Brazil-based bisexual adult performer who appeared in Evil Angel and other productions shot there, suffered a fatal heart attack during calf implant surgery, Evil Angel reported Wednesday.
Scorpion was 31, said Evil Angel’s Jeff Marton.
“There’s no damn justice in the world when a guy that is this beloved goes like this,” Marton said. “It’s just so sudden. It just tells me there’s no God.”
Marton said he learned of Scorpion’s death in a Rio plastic surgery clinic on Tuesday from Brazilian-based Evil Angel director Stanlay Miranda, who frequently used Scorpion in his productions.
According to Marton, Scorpion went to the clinic late last week for calf implants, but had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and hit his head during a fall, prompting him to be hospitalized. Scorpion spent several days in the hospital, then checked himself out Sunday night. On Tuesday, he went back to the clinic to try the calf implant procedure again, and during the attempted surgery, he suffered a fatal heart attack.
“I can’t believe he went back again,” Marton said, “and I can’t believe the clinic let him. They never did complete the procedure.”
Scorpion also appeared in titles directed by Evil Angel head John Stagliano and Evil Angel director Joey Silvera.
Scorpion’s credits include Miranda’s Rio Carnival Orgy 2 and 3 and Best Ass in The World; Silvera’s Rogue Adventures 5, 9, 20 and 21; and Stagliano’s Buttman’s Anal Divas and Buttman’s Bend Over Brazilian Babes 3. Scorpion also appeared in titles from other companies, including Elegant Angel’s Transposed 4, 5 and 7.
