Linda Lovelace Dies In Denver

23 April 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Officials at Denver Health Medical Center told the press Tuesday that Linda Boreman (a.k.a. Linda Lovelace) died Monday from injuries sustained during an auto accident earlier this month. Boreman/Lovelace, 53, rose to fame in the '70s with the now-legendary adult film Deep Throat, but eventually abandoned the industry, later claiming in a bestselling autobiography that she had been abused and even forced to perform at gunpoint. She quickly became a symbol for anti-pornography activists and began speaking out against the industry in lectures and testifying before a presidential commission investigating pornography. Boreman/Lovelace had moved to Denver in 1990 with her second husband, Larry Marchiano (whom she divorced in 1996), and her two children. There she worked in clerical jobs and continued her anti-porn campaign on the lecture circuit, also coming out against silicone breast implants which she claimed had caused her health problems. Boreman/Lovelace was profiled in an "E!: True Hollywood Story" in 2000. (This story was compiled by IMDb staff) »
