In Loving Memory: Mehran “King B” Chestnut (1990-2015)

Mr. Mehran “Ron” Chestnut aka King B. was born November 9, 1990 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Chestnut studied at Atlanta Metropolitan State College and worked on the wait staff of Yard House in Atlantic Station and a P.F. Chang’s restaurant, according to his Facebook page. Chestnut, a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, graduated from Alexander High School in Douglasville.

In 2013, Chestnut appeared in an episode of “Tha Life Atlanta,” a web-based reality series about black gay life in Atlanta. In his appearance, Chestnut discussed how becoming a stripper and porn actor helped lift him up from living homeless behind a MARTA station.

“I actually learned how to financially hold my own money, gain my own money, to live on my own, to basically learn the ATL lifestyle, the gay lifestyle in general and how to go from a low self esteem to a high self esteem. So it really taught me a lot,” Chestnut said.

King B was active in the adult industry as an exotic dancer and adult performer, having working with studios such as BlackBreeders, Next Door Ebony, Raging Stallion among others.

He passed away September 4, 2015 in Atlanta GA after being found unresponsive in an upscale hotel. No official statement on the cause of death but it was said he may have suffered a seizure that was fatal. Chestnut had a history of huffing solvent and ingested enough Black Max to be toxic and cause “a violent accidental death,” according to an autopsy report obtained by Project Q Atlanta.

A memorial service for Chestnut was scheduled for Sept. 19 at World Changers Church International in College Park.

His family had him cremated.
