The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner released  the cause of death for Kim Porter on Friday.

The model, actress and former girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Combs, died of lobar pneumonia, according to the autopsy report. Her manner of death was determined to be natural. Lobar pneumonia is a type of pneumonia that affects one or more sections of the lungs, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Porter, 47, was found unresponsive at her home in the Toluca Lake section of Los Angeles on Nov. 15, 2018.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy was completed the next day, but the coroner’s office listed her cause of death as “deferred” and the manner of death as “pending investigation.”
