Kim Porter’s cause of death has been revealed. As initially suspected, Diddy’s ex and mother of his children passed away from a form of pneumonia. According to TMZ, the L.A. County Coroner’s office released the cause of death as lobar pneumonia, an inflammation of an entire lobe of the lungs.
The day before she died, Porter reportedly got a massage from her goddaughter and watched a movie with some of her family members at her Toluca Lake home before going to bed around 11:30 p.m. local time. Her goddaughter saw her at 8:30 a.m. the following morning but thought Porter was still asleep, so she headed out.
Around 11:30 a.m., her housemates found Porter unresponsive and called 911. First responders discovered water bottles, Pedialyte and sports drinks on her nightstand as well as a Z-Pack, a bowl of tomato soup and some Tylenol.
Two days before her death, Porter told her doctor she wasn’t feeling well and had zero appetite. The report says a nurse visited her home and gave her a saline solution drip infused with vitamins. The next day, Porter told her doctor she had blood in her phlegm.
The toxicology report notes there were no narcotic drugs or alcohol in her system.
Porter was laid to rest on November 24, 2017. She was 47.
