Chloe Jones

   Melinda Dee Jones was born June 17, 1975, and grew up in Silsbee, Texas. After graduating from Silsbee High School in 1994, she turned to modeling and appeared in mainstream periodicals like Vanity Fair before moving on to adult magazines like Playboy, Hustler, and Swank. Penthouse named her their Pet of the Month in April 1998, and in 2001 she crossed over into adult movies, adopting the stage name Chloe Jones. After some plastic surgery to emphasize her figure, she was signed to an exclusive short-term contract with the adult film company New Sensations. Two years later, she signed another exclusive contract, this time with porn giant Vivid Entertainment.

   She was wildly popular with her audience, on par with Jenna Jameson and Janine Lindemulder at the time. Despite her enormous fan base, she only performed in eighteen films over three years; she retired from the adult industry in 2004, after her final film, Where the Boys Aren't 17, wrapped production. She began working as an escort in Hollywood, and claimed in a March 2005 National Enquirer interview that Charlie Sheen was among her clients and had paid her $15,000 for her services. Sheen, through his agent, disputed this, stating that he had not seen her since 1996; she responded by claiming he was trying to have her killed to keep his television contract intact. A month after the interview, two weeks before her 30th birthday, Jones died of liver failure from years of abusing Vicodin and other prescription drugs, leaving behind a husband and two children.
