HOW DID KIM PORTER DIE?
The model and ex-girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Combs had been suffering from flu-like symptoms for days at the time of her death. She was 47 years old.
Kim Porter was found dead in the bedroom of her mansion in November, 2018.
Her cause of death was announced on Friday by the medical examiner in Los Angeles after months of mystery and speculation.
The coroner’s report, obtained by The Blast, says that Porter’s bedroom contained bottles of water, sports drinks and Pedialyte on a nightstand, as well as a bowl of what appeared to be tomato soup.
An autopsy was completed on Porter a day after she was found dead in her home on Nov. 15, but her death certificate previously stated her cause of death as “deferred” and the manner of death as “pending investigation.”
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner said in a statement released at the time:
“On Nov. 16, an autopsy was performed on Porter. The cause of death was deferred pending additional tests. Porter’s body has since been released from our facility,”
Porter was buried in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia on November. 24, 2018.
During the elaborate public funeral, her ex and babyfather Sean Diddy Combs, 49, arranged for Porter’s casket to travel in a carriage pulled by horses and acclaimed pastor T.D. Jakes officiated the service.
