Brittany Hura, who was thrust into the spotlight after a revenge porn scandal involving rugby star Bryce Cartwright, has died.
Her body was found inside her Sydney, Australia, home on Monday at 6:35 p.m., New South Wales police told News.Com.Au.
Hura’s cause of death remains unknown. Police told the outlet they don’t suspect foul play.
According to the site, a post-mortem examination is being performed to determine exactly what happened.

Hura, 25, and Bryce split in 2016 after six years of dating.
After the break up, the Daily Telegraph reported that Hura lashed out against her former beau online, sharing intimate photos of him on social media. She also alleged that he “can’t pleasure a girl.”
She also posted a video on social media in which she denied being “mentally f—ed up” and threatened to kill her ex-boyfriend, according to the Telegraph.
“I’m not mentally f—ed up, I’m just laughing at you … you’re going to be dead soon,” she reportedly said in the clips. “In the grave … 6 feet under … you don’t even know what’s coming at you.”

According to the outlet charges against Hura, which included stalking and using a carriage service to menace, were dismissed because of her mental state at the time.
After the video appeared online, police took a restraining order out on her, which stated Hura wasn’t allowed within 250 meters of Bryce. She agreed in court to the terms and did not enter a plea, according to Yahoo News Australia.
Cartwright, 22, has said nothing about Hura’s death. His cousin Bronte Cartwright gave a brief statement to Daily Mail Australia, telling the publication news of her death is “very, very sad.”
“I didn’t know her all that well except from family occasions, but she was a part of the family at one point so it’s very, very sad,” she said on Wednesday.
“Even with everything that happened between (her) and my cousin Bryce, she’s still a person.”
