Transgender extremist and on-screen character Alexis Arquette apparently died from AIDS-related complications, as indicated by RadarOnline.com report.
Alexis’ family has expressed that the bigger-than-life personality passed on from an unspecified sickness.
However Alexis’ ex Robert Dupont told Radar, “Alexis was living with AIDS and she had an inoperable tumor and she had developed an infection … I was told that went to her liver and throughout her body.”
Dupont, who famously ran in Andy Warhol‘s posse, dated Arquette for several years in the 1990s and said the Wedding Singer star was placed “in an induced coma” before passing away.
Dupont shed more light on the the pitiful circumstance: “She was working as an artist and living in an Actors Fund home in West Hollywood for people with HIV and AIDS. She hated it. People kept breaking into her apartment and they did alcohol and drugs. Alexis hated that. She never did drugs and she didn’t drink.”
On Sunday, September 11, the news that Alexis has kicked the bucket encompassed by loved ones was broke online.
