Model/Actress Kim Porter’s Cause Of Death Revealed By Los Angeles Coroner Office

Two months after model/actress Kim Porter was found dead in her Los Angeles-area home, we know the reported cause of her death. 

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner revealed that Porter died of lobar pneumonia. "The manner of death was certified as natural."

Prior to her passing, the mother-of-four reportedly shared with confidants that she was suffering from a severe flu and was worried that she wasn’t getting any better. 

NBC News reports on Nov. 7, Porter said she had a sore throat. Five days later, she endured a fever of 102. On Nov. 14, the fever retreated to 96.

One day after contacting her doctor to schedule a follow-up appointment, the 47-year-old was found unresponsive in Toluca Lake, California, on November 15th. 

Her goddaughter says she peeked into her room and saw her still asleep around 8:30 am. When people who were staying over noticed around 11:30 am that Kim hadn’t get out of bed, they found her without a pulse and called 9-1-1.

Kim’s exit from this world shook up the hip-hop community as became a staple and familiar face of the early 1990s. Dating Sean “Diddy” Combs on and off for over a decade, the two shared three children together.

’ll raise our family just like you taught me to. Love you forever!!!! 🖤

Following her sudden death, Diddy eulogized Porter at her funeral in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia surrounded by Kim’s family and friends including Usher, Mary J. Blige, Lil’ Kim and Russell Simmons.

I miss you so much. 
Kim also has a son, actor-singer Quincy Brown, from a previous relationship with R&B singer Al B. Sure!

You showed me how to simply live life and be happy no matter the circumstances. So that’s exactly what I’m doing. I miss you & love you so much mommy. ♥️

We send our continued thoughts and prayers to family and friends of the beautiful Kim Porter.

Family, Friends and industry peers are still heartbroken over the sudden death of Kim Porter. 

Although many are speechless and still don’t know how to full react, Diddy’s ex Cassie put together a touching message for Porter. 

Her note is full of affection despite her recent breakup with Porter's ex-husband, Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Despite her recent break up with Diddy, the R&B singer has been seen with the hip hop mogul in recent days to help comfort him through this tough time. 

Cassie shared the following caption with a beautiful picture of Kim Porter: “There are no words…. An amazing mother to her beautiful family, lit up every room she entered and now the most beautiful angel 💔 Sending so much love and my condolences to the Porter and Combs families. I love you @quincy, @kingcombs, Jessie, D’Lila, Chance, @princejdc and @diddy. Puff you are already the best father. I know you will be amazing. Love you too @callmepumpkin, @misahylton, Mama Combs & Grandpa Jake!! You all always have my love and support!! Love you @ladykp ✨💗💗💗”

She ended up turning off the comments section to avoid all kinds of comments. She might have been right to do so, because when The Shade Room reposted it, some people on the internet are calling Cassie fake.

One follower wrote:  “Everyone had a role and they played it. This man is extremely rich and takes care of his kids no matter what. The women don’t want to give that up either so maybe this situation worked for all of them. I believe there was drama. Who wouldn’t when your man has multiple women. Doesn’t mean Cassie didn’t still respect this woman. I just think it was between all of them and not our business so it was left to interpretation.”

A second commenter shared:  “Been thinking this the whole time he wasted precious time from a Real one….💔💔💔 She was beautiful and I remember never liking Diddy for how he treated Kim back in the day when he was running around w/jlo less alone Cassie. “All his women look like jlo” that line disgusted me. None more beautiful than Kim Porter. Been my thoughts before she ever passed ugh. May she rest in heaven.”

This naysayer blasted Diddy’s ex and claimed: “Cassie is fake !!! I am sure she’s happy now cos no other woman will block her like Kim did !!! Kim dead is a set from diddy and ….C 🤔 diddy sacrifice her #myopinion”

This woman gushed over Cassie and Kim as she said: “Diddy lucky to have had not 1 but 2 classy ladies in his life……damn!!! It must be a reflection of the man himself.”

Over the weekend, Diddy hosted a private memorial for Kim Porter at his California home. Over a hundred people (including Mary J. Blige and Pharrell) were in attendance.

We send our continued thoughts and prayers to family and friends of the beautiful Kim Porter.
