Former model Kim Porter died of pneumonia, it has been revealed. She is survived by her three children.
The L.A. County Coroner’s office released the cause of death as lobar pneumonia — which is an inflammation of an entire lobe of the lungs.
According to the report, Kim had gotten a massage from her goddaughter the day before she was found dead, and watched movies with family members until going to bed at 11:30 PM. The report lists that as the last known time she was alive.
Her goddaughter saw her at 8:30 AM the next day, but thought Kim was still sleeping … so she left for work. The report says housemates checked on Kim again at 11:30 AM. When they found her unresponsive, they called 911.
There were unopened or partially opened bottles of water, Pedialyte and sports drinks on Kim’s nightstand. There were also antibiotics — a Z-pack — a bowl of tomato soup and some Tylenol.
Porter passed away just before Thanksgiving. Her homegoing was a star-studded affair including a eulogy from her longtime ex-boyfriend Sean “Diddy” Combs.
