The 47-year-old Porter, who had three children with rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, died about 11:30 a.m. Nov. 15 in the 10300 block of Woodbridge Street.

An autopsy was performed the following day, but the cause of death had been deferred by the coroner’s office, pending further investigation.

“It was later determined Porter died from lobar pneumonia,” according to a coroner’s statement. “The manner of death was certified as natural.”

According to media reports, Porter had been experiencing flu-like symptoms and had been visited at her home on Nov. 12 by a doctor who prescribed antibiotics and IV fluids.
