It was sadly reported yesterday that Alexis Arquette passed away but the cause was unknown until today. RadarOnline.com reported that several close sources to Arquette confirmed that she died from complications from AIDS on September 11th, 2016. She passed away at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles surrounded by friends and family while listening to David Bowie’s “Starman”.
Her former lover, Robert Dupont, came forward and exclusively told RadarOnline.com that, “Alexis was living with AIDS and she had an inoperable tumor and she had developed an infection,” Robert Dupont explained. “I was told that went to her liver and throughout her body.” Dupont dated Arquette for several years in the mid 90’s and continued to stay in contact with her until the end of her life. He went on to say that the last few years have been extremely difficult for her. Towards the end, Arquette was in a lot of pain and had to put into a medically induced coma before she passed.
Reps for the Arquette family have yet to make a public statement regarding the passing of Alexis.
