Today we got the unfortunate news today that French singer, actor and model Quentin Elias has passed away on February 25 in his home from a massive heart attack. Quentin was the former lead singer of the French group Alliage before relocating to New York City, where he opened for the likes of Janet Jackson and Madonna, and released countless albums and singles until his unfortunate death. His real age is according to his Facebook page 39, but some say he was born in 1980 instead of 1974. Whatever his age was, this model for several fashion designers such as Armani and Jean Paul Gaultier has died way too early. The details around his dead aren’t revealed at the moment, but they think he had a massive heart attack. An official statement will be made probably tomorrow.
Quentin Elias is a singer, actor and model. Originally from France, of Algerian origin, he was the former lead singer for French boy band Alliage from 1996 to 1999. After his departure from the group, he relocated to New York City to pursue further career. In 1996, he auditioned and was selected as a member of Alliage and became its lead singer. Alliage recorded two albums. The group had many singles including six singles that charted in the French Top 5; Alliage also toured internationally, having additional success in other countries. Alliage had a four-year run from 1996 to 2000, although Elias left the band in 1999 in order to pursue a solo career.

He relocated to New York City for this and began working with music producers such as Ernie Lake, Junior Vasquez and Nile Rodgers. In 2002 he released his own single “Always the Last to Say Goodbye”. He also performed at local gay venues and events such as Splash Bar and Tom of Finland events. Elias has appeared in two episodes of the television series Sex Chronicles. He was also one of the featured subjects in the 2010 documentary The Adonis Factor alongside models Anderson Davis, Dakota Rivers, Christopher Saint and writer/actor Bruce Vilanch.
Quentin wanted to do as many as he can in his life and wanted to try everything once besides singing. He made his theater debut starring in the role of Joe Kirwood in a production of “The Boulevard. In 2010, he played roles of a vampire in the film The Brides of Sodom, followed by small roles in the 2013 low-budget film comedy College Debts, and in He Who Finds a Wife 2: Thou Shall Not Covet. Elias has modeled for several fashion designers . In 2008 he released his first calendar. Elias has also served as a model for a manufacturer of gay leather gear based in New York City.
In 2008 Elias (using the pseudonym of “Q”) appeared on the pornography site “Randy Blue,” performing in a solo video directed by Jeremy Lucido. Elias stated, “I have done so much in my career, this adult video is one more thing I have done in my career, it came to me at a point in my life when I felt very sexual and felt the need to express myself through sex.”
Elias was a humble, sweet person, who was not shy about his body or appearances. In order to maintain his physique, Elias exercises regularly, avoids drugs, and denies rumors that he uses steroids. He also has dispelled rumors that he has cosmetically enhanced his lips, stating that they are natural. Although it has not been official that he was gay, like many artists will not tell for their audience, he had some unofficially mentioned boyfriends. Also he appeared in many gay magazines like DNA or got in front of the camera for famous photographers like Michael Stokes and performed in lots of gay venues. Whatever his sexual preference would have been, he will be greatly missed by his fans, family, friends and loved ones. My condolences go out to them all.
