Kim passed away on Nov. 15, at her Los Angeles home. It was around noon that paramedics were called to the Toluca Lake house and dispatch audio indicated she had suffered from cardiac arrest, according to TMZ. The site also reported that she had been suffering from pneumonia, but it’s unclear if that was the cause of her death. There will be an autopsy performed to determine the cause. Kim’s passing was confirmed by her rep to Page Six. “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” the statement read.
Kimora wasn’t the only celebrity to be absolutely devastated by Kim’s passing, Naturally, Diddy, her ex, and father to their children, was beside himself.
