The actress and model was found dead in her California home in November.

The cause of death was unknown for months until officials announced it on Friday. The manner of death has been certified as natural.


Porter’s autopsy was completed the day after she died, but her death certificate previously said her cause of death was “deferred.” She was reportedly suffering from flu-like symptoms days leading up to her untimely passing.

Kim Porter is survived by her four children Quincy Brown, Christian Combs, and the twins, D’Lila, and Jessie Combs. She was 47.
