Porn Star Sophie Anderson’s Tragic Life: Model’s Battle With Sepsis, Being ‘abused By Men While Working At A Massage Parlour At Just 14’ And ‘fat Shamed By Her Mother’ As A Child

The life of porn star Sophie Anderson, who has died aged 36, was marred by traumatic experiences in her childhood – including harrowing sexual abuse and working at a massage parlour at just 14.

The mother-of-four was grieving after the death of her boyfriend, former Crystal Palace footballer Oliver Spedding, just two weeks ago at the age of 34.

The cause of death has not yet been made public for either of the pair.

Anderson’s relationship with Spedding appeared to take a dark twist in September when he falsely posted on social media that she had died, bizarrely claiming she had taken an overdose before deleting the post.

It led to concern from her friends, including co-star Rebecca More, who tweeted: ‘I’ve just had a phone call from Suffolk police informing me that the Metropolitan Police can confirm they have spoken to Sophie and she is ok.’

Anderson, originally from Bristol, often appeared on podcasts where she spoke candidly about her troubled early life.

She told interviewer James English how she was abused by regulars at a pub when she was just ten. She said: ‘So, the men I’d used to go and see at [the age of] ten were older as well.

‘So the men I’d used to go and see at [the age of] ten were older as well. I’d particularly go to this pub in Bradford on Avon. They would buy me booze and fags and give me weed.

‘I started working in a massage parlour when I was 14. So while I was trying to act and see women outside and get f***** by men, I was then in a massage parlour and getting paid.

‘The massage parlour at that time didn’t ID you, it was only when they started to get tight that it was [we need] your ID, so I didn’t really do it that much, so I used my money basically for drink and all that.

‘When [my son] was born, we were in and out of hostels. I didn’t have any food then or anything.’

Among other confessions, Anderson spoke about having a difficult relationship with her mother who she claimed would fat-shame her as a child. She alleged her mother would buy clothes that didn’t fit and then mock her over her size. 

Anderson described a long history of eating disorders and that her first pregnancy was ‘the one time I didn’t feel guilty about putting on weight’ – eating salmon and other nutritious food to help her baby thrive. 

Breaking down in tears, she said: ‘It’s not even my story that’s making me upset. It’s literally because if I knew that anyone had to go through anything or any kind of abuse with being hit or being mentally abused, or anything like that, that is what kills, you know.’

Anderson’s big break came at the age of 29 in 2017,  after she’d already had children, when she entered the world of online pornography. She set up a humorous partnership, ‘the c*** destroyers’ with fellow porn star Rebecca More.

She quickly gained thousands of followers and became one of a handful of adult models to become famous in the mainstream.

Anderson’s obvious warmth in interviews and social media posts, as well as her advocacy for HIV and LGBTQ+ charities, meant she was much loved by fans and other celebrities.

Anderson, who lived in Slough, Berkshire, met former Palace academy player Spedding on a porn set nearly four years ago and the pair embarked on a relationship.

Spedding told a castmate he couldn’t stop thinking about Sophie after the scene was over and called her his ‘soulmate’.

In March 2021, Anderson suffered one of her biggest career mishaps when her breast implant exploded in the shower after a fourth sepsis infection, leaving her fearful her career was over. 

In an interview with The Star, she said: ‘The most important thing is the NHS saved my life. Doctors told me I am lucky and I could have died. I still feel totally lost and I just want to be OK. I have to stay strong for my family.’

She was later underwent major reconstructive surgery.

But she was left deeply unhappy with the results, describing her reconstructed breast as looking like ‘Bigfoot’s foot’ in a separate video, where she also revealed she was in hospital fighting sepsis.

Speaking about the ordeal, she described Spedding as her ‘rock’ and praised him for helping her get through her ‘darkest days’.

More wrote: ‘I’m devastated hearing the awful news of Sophie’s passing. We shared some amazing times together and that’s how I’m going to remember her.

‘The bubbly, funny, kind hearted soul who was outrageous on the outside but also so gentle behind closed doors. We were very close, and we shared a crazy time together that was totally unique to us. 

‘That’s how I will remember her. This is so tragic but I know you are now at peace. I will always love you and hold a special place in my heart.’

Anderson’s last Instagram post, posted three weeks ago, was a selfie with the caption: ‘You come home to the wife after a hard days work’.

Her last post with boyfriend Spedding, in August, plugged an adult competition show the couple entered.

‘Please watch through their website and vote for us,’ Anderson said.

‘Your love and support we appreciate so much.’
