Autopsy Rules Kim Porter’s Official Cause Of Death

Kim Porter's cause of death has been certified as natural.

Mourners attend funeral services and interment for former model and actress Kim Porter at Evergreen Memorial Gardens Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, in Columbus, Ga.

The Porter and Combs families said in a statement in November: "God broke the mould when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her". Prior to her relationship with Combs, Porter dated singer Al B. Sure, whom they share a son name Quincy, 27.

The 47-year-old mother-of-three died unexpectedly in November 2018, to the shock of her family and friends. Her manner of death had been pending investigation since then.

Following her death, Combs released a statement saying he and his former partner were "more than soulmates".

In the days after her untimely death, Diddy posted a video tribute to the mother of his children on social media.

Porter's god-daughter found her in bed at 8:30 a.m. the next day but assumed she was asleep.

During the ceremony Combs and Quincy both summoned strength to speak about the love they shared for Porter. "I'll always take care of you". But I haven't. I don't know what I'm going to do without you baby.
