Christina Ashten Gourkani, a 34-year-old model and adult content creator passed away Thursday, April 20th, after undergoing what many believe to have been a cosmetic surgery procedure.
Gourkani, who was more widely known as Ashten G, is remembered by many for her friendliness and compassion, and for bearing an uncanny resemblance to Kim Kardashian.
A medical tribute from Gourkani’s family shares the cause of her death as a cardiac arrest, and says Gourkani’s sudden passing is being treated as a “homicide related to [a] medical procedure that took a turn for the worse.”
It is unknown what if any elective surgical procedure the model was getting, or in what state or country it was performed.
Gourkani’s last post to social media, April 19th, bears California as her location.
“She was such a caring and loving free spirit that always took the time to bring a smile to anyone’s face she crossed paths with. She was the kind of person that would kneel down and talk to children at eye level, she searched for the lonely person in the corner and made them feel special as she has such a gift of connecting with people.”The Gourkani Family, Celebrating Christina Ashten Gourkani (10/22/1988 – 04/20/2023)
