(Hollywood, CA) On Friday, legendary performer Shyla Shylez passed away while visiting family.

Her long-time friend Tia Cyrus has set up a GoFundMe page to cover her hospital bills and funeral expenses in Los Angeles. Her family and friends would like to give her a funeral to remember and are asking her fans and friends in the industry to donate.

“I’m really devastated about her passing, but want to help her family give her an amazing funeral,” says Tia Cyrus. “There has been a lot of misinformation floating around out there. Rather than discuss the details of her passing, I hope her fans and industry friends will donate to help cover her hospital bills and funeral. Her family and I would really appreciate anything you can give, no matter how small.”

The GoFundMe page is asking for $17k and in just one day of being up $1,500 has already been raised. For those who would like to contribute, the GoFundMe is https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-put-shyla-stylez-to-rest. Many radio shows and podcasts have been promoting the page, as well as industry and fans on social media platforms.

Shyla started her adult career in 2001 and in 2002 became one of the very first contract girls for Jill Kelly Productions.
