Owner of JHP Films, Hans, told AVN that Sky had been battling depression due to her stage IV metastatic breast cancer diagnosis, which she tweeted about in March of this year.

"I love @webmasterjoe because he understood how difficult going through cancer is," she wrote. "I posted on IG that I have stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. He was so kind and invited me to stay at his house. I am battling this cancer every day and he has been nothing but supportive."

Hans told AVN he spoke to Sky "several times" throughout the past year, saying her battle with cancer "was not an easy ride for her."

"This will take a long time to get over, if it's even possible," he said. "Dahlia Sky, you beautiful soul, you funny, complicated and warm-hearted friend! I am going to miss you so much."

"Dahlia's passing is extremely heartbreaking," he told the adult entertainment website. "She was a really sweet girl, I shot her dozens of times and not only did she always bring her A game as a performer, but she was also a very talented actress and a real trooper."

"She endured some of the most grueling 22-plus hour days on set for my Terminator and Star Trek parodies, and never once complained or stopped smiling," he explained. "On Terminator we shot some of her dialogue literally after 23 hours and she nailed it in one take, which I always remembered and told people about."

On Twitter, porn director Glenn King added, "I'm really sad today about the passing of Dahlia Sky. I remember the day we shot her for MeanB---hes how everyone on set enjoyed being around her. RIP Dahlia."
