Kim Porter

According to sources, Kim Porter, mom to 3 of Sean Combs' 5 children, died from a rare case of double pneumonia brought on by the flu. Double pneumonia is an obsolete term to describe an infection in both lungs. The accepted medical term for double pneumonia is bilateral lobar pneumonia.

Porter, 47, was weakened by the effects of the flu before she contracted a rare mixed viral-bacterial pneumonia that killed her.

The mortality rate for mixed viral-bacterial pneumonia is 42%.

How Do I Contract Pneumonia?

You can contract pneumonia by inhaling airborne droplets containing infectious viruses or bacteria. If left untreated, pneumonia can be life-threatening.

Signs and Symptoms of Double Pneumonia

The symptoms of double pneumonia are the same for pneumonia. Your prognosis (likelihood of recovery) depends on your general health, age, and the type of infection. Viral pneumonia is typically worse than bacterial pneumonia because antibiotics are not effective against viruses.

Symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest Pain
  • Nasal congestion
  • Productive cough with yellow or rust-colored sputum
  • Fever, sweating, chills
  • Rapid heartbeat and rapid breathing
  • Fatigue (generalized weakness)
  • Diarrhea
  • Symptoms for adults older than 65 may also include:

  • Confusion
  • Change in mental status
  • Lower-than-normal body temperature
  •  

    When Should I call My Doctor?

    Call your personal physician, health care provider, or go to the emergency room if you experience chest pain or have trouble breathing. Also notify your doctor or go to the emergency room if your symptoms are severe or last longer than three (3) days.

      Sandra, could her death been avoided??

      what should she have done? or her doctor?

      So sad. My cousin died from double pneumonia. He was just 24 years old.
      RIP Kim.

    • AmericanDream

      ‘According to sources ‘

      Well , I for one, ain’t buying this one . The official autopsy has yet to be released so all we can do is speculate. However , it was clear she had a coke habit ( a former nanny in a lawsuit had provided explicit details of her drug use ) . What isn’t clear is whether by the time she died she had kicked the habit or not . One of the immediate effects of hard drug use is the weakening of the immune and respiratory system .

    • Ghost

      Why wasn’t she hospitalized!! She had to be weak and hardly breathing...smh. I had pneumonia about two years ago...was hospitalized for 3 days and off work for two weeks. Pneumonia is very SERIOUS! Take care of yourselves folks....

      Unfortunately I am not buying it either because she definitely would have been so sick she would have had to be hospitalized. And it's interesting that yesterday there was a conversation on this blog about her family covering up the real cause of her death when the autopsy comes out and then "boom" the next day a family friend responds by saying she had double pneumonia. Nope. Not buying it.

    • ???TheRider???

      I had it over 10 years ago & I was off work for a month, in the hospital for a week! It was hard to go from the bed to the bathroom! It started as a cold, take care of yourselves!!!

      My goodness. I really feel bad for her. Not being able to breathe from a common cold is horrible enough. I can't stand to be sick!
      Folks, if you are able, build your immune system with herbs. Do a regular body cleanse. Drink water. Leave sodas, fast food, sweets, fried foods alone please. Get healthy.

      I had pneumonia 3 years ago, weeks of my body being very weak, lost 20 pounds, no strength to hold my head up. Thought it was just a prolonged flu. Went to ER, stayed all day, then sent home with antibiotics strong enough to beat anthrax. Meds worked quick, but the aftermath of being sick is draining. Kim should have been in a hospital so she can take every test needed. I took so many tests in the ER it was nerve wracking, but the doctors knew the problem afterwards. That Quack Kim had should be on the lam. No way should she have been home. Rest easy sis.

      Same thing happened to me years ago. I thought it was the flu as I had a cold and had got wet in the rain. I called my now ex-husband and explained the symptoms. He understood because he's asthmatic and had had pneumonia in the past so he advised me that it was not the flu and came to rush me to the hospital. In hindsight, he probably saved my life.

    • MsJC

      I had pneumonia when I was 15 years ago at 22, and almost died. It started as a bad cold that just kept lingering and would not pass. All the same symptoms you listed: Shortness of breath, extremely fatigued, no strength to do anything, rapid heartbeat. Went to the ER because I could not take a deep breath, my chest hurt every time I tried. I thought I was having a heart attacks at 22. The antibiotics worked very quickly with me as well, and I had an inhaler too.

    • Robert lee Bennett OG

      Not what from one of my respiratory tech friends tell me she say they come in and can’t hardly breath than they say they got pneumonia than the aids test come back positive and they go up stairs and never come back down alive that is...but I do live in Atlanta the AIDS Capital of black America

    • dontgetblocked

      I had this and it almost killed me. Seriously, I almost died. You have to go to the hospital. This can NOT be treated at home. Your fever can go so high you get brain damage. It's extremely painful to breath. You can't walk, talk, or eat. You feel like you're drowning. Who was with her? I'm completely confused. She would have been too weak to care for herself and her temperature dangerously high. She would have been delirious like I was. Her family should have been with her. I'm starting to suspect foul play or something. Having suffered through this, I can't believe she would have hesitated to go to the hospital. Something ain't right here.

    • dontgetblocked

      It sure isn't. I had double pneumonia and almost died. You're delirious and unable to make decisions. Someone decided not to take her to the hospital. Her temperature would have been dangerously high and her breathing labored and painful in both lungs. No loved one would sit and watch her suffer.

      If article is true I don't understand why she didn't go to the hospital asap!! People spend money on expensive clothes, shoes handbags etc... But when come to health nothing.. Your health is more important than your outer appearance!!

    • Kiana Jones

      Thank you!!! It wasnt caused by a double anything...

    • Kiana Jones

      Right, its more to the story and im sure it was an illness

    • Kiana Jones

      Yep. I believe it was drug related..house was cleaned out before cops arrived..so, nanny called diddy first...

    • Kiana Jones

      How do u know that she had fluid on the lungs? Did u see the autospy report? I didn't think so

    • Kiana Jones

      Nah. Diddy and them boys knows how she really died..

    • yvette46

      Ok we get it from the last 5 post you had DP!! No rewards giving the focus and article is about Kim no need for you to keep bringing up your illness.. Go ahead and block me.. Who cares??

    • Marlika

      I believe there’s more to her death than what’s being said. If you look at her post on IG when Quincy had the movie premiere for his Netflix X mas movie. She captioned that most of all she happy she got to witness him live out his dream.? That was not his first movie or acting role. But she was saying it as if she was happy to be able to witness all before she was gone. Then in one of Puff pics he put that he was gonna take care of the girls just like she taught him how. ? She looked sick in the eyes at the Netflix movie premiere. Either way I hope no one releases her real cause of death. That’s only for her family to know. ?????

    • BdRmiz39

      Amen to your recovery.
      I had ‘regular’ pneumonia and experienced ALL symptoms you mentioned. Pneumonia is No joke. If it weren’t for a relative’s husband who forced me (basically had to pick me up and carry my azz) to go to the emergency room, I would not have made it through the night according to the doctor.
      Now I don’t know if my asthma complicated ‘regular’ pneumonia, but any level of this illness can be fatal.
      Folks better recognize!!!! ??

    • the guest

      That’s what other sites have inferred.

    • the guest

      Exactly.

    • the guest

      Because it wasn’t double pneumonia.

    • the guest

      Correction: Kim Poerter’s cause of death is known but will forever be unknown to the public.

    • davine puddin

      Didnt easy e die from double pneumonia? I think sandra medical updates are important. You never know whose health or life can be saved

    • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

      Yes I had a coworker to die from this years ago. We never want to believe the truth becasue a lie always sounds better. RIP

    • free

      tell 'em. yes, we clown but don't understimate the depths of the roses' knowledge and connections. folk be knowin.

    • free

      don't worry; it won't be revealed here.

    • free

      maybe blackpressradio can explain....

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I don't know what you're trying to imply here. Kim died of cardiac arrest related to double pneumonia. That's what the coroner told the family. The coroner's report does not have to be released to the public.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Rich people are under the false impression that they can get quality care from a private doctor at home. What they don't realize is a lot of private doctors lost their medical licenses for malpractice or they were fired from hospitals and are not allowed to step foot in the hospital doors.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The family knows her cause of death. The autopsy report will not be disclosed to the public because a crime wasn't committed.

    • Blue

      Hahaha

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Yes, her death could have been avoided if she immediately went to the emergency room after experiencing difficulty breathing or chest pain. Those are the 2 symptoms that require emergency room treatment or evaluation.

    • ?ee?? from TV ? ?

      Double pneumonia AKA a case of Diddy. They said she was going to write a tell all, and you know Piggy Daddy couldn’t have that happening. She knew ALLLL the secrets. The underage boys, the ....., I guess we’ll never know the rest. That woman was probably slowly poisoned ?.

      I had pneumonia my freshman year at college. Being busy with classes, volunteering, and working part time, I didn’s know it until I nearly fainted one day having lunch with my parents. I remember at the hospital having x-rays done. I recall the cure was antibiotics and rest.

      I also remember I didn’t really have a cold or a cough, I just had a feeling of not feeling well. So be aware that pnuemonia can not have symptoms. We just have to take our health seriously and be proactive and listen to family and loved ones and take care ourselves.

      But the pnuemonioa was also my fault because I was young and trying to be cute not dressing appropriately for the winter, remember those days too cute for winter hat and a coat?

      I recently had pneumonia in my right lung and it progressed to heart failure. I gained 22 pounds of water weight in my legs, stomach, lungs and around my heart. My cardiologist and an alert urgent Care doctor saved my life. 2 months later I'm still recovering.
      Don't ever take pneumonia lighly.

    • country57

      whoa!!!! Begging for a disease.

    • INDUSTRY GURU

      Only that you reported in my opinion, with all due respect to the parties involved, contrary to blackpressradios perception. There are other stories behind the scenes you respectfully choose to not report on.

    • SingleGalCrazyWorld

      My cousin had double pneumonia back in 2005...she lost 23 lbs by the time she was released from the hospital...ole girl went from a firm size 14 to a flimsy size 10... when she was released her clothes were so big we had to buy her a sweatshirt and pants from the gift shop to wear home... it took her over a month to stop coughing up yellow mucus...

    • angelpat2812

      Ain't buying it!!! That's all I got!

    • jayhawkpride

      My co-worker had double pneumonia and it came on suddenly with no symptoms prior. She had emergency surgery and they gave her a 20% chance to survive. Thankfully she survived, but she was in the hospital for two months.

    • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

      Too bad.

    • blue skies

      so sad

    • blue skies

      wow!

    • blue skies

      o wow

    • Solstice

      Interesting ?

    • Michelle

      That woman would’ve kept Didya secrets forever. They weren’t beefing she had access to any and everything of his. She’s been vacationing and staying at his house for years

    • Hair Lova

      Yes we sure as hell do!
      We just choose to look the other way and carry on.
      But the garden be knowing

    • LithiumHaitianFlower

      Hmmm

    • Ruth

      Again her cause of death has not been determined. I don't care what your opinion is.

    • Ruth

      Thank you

    • BdRmiz39

      Lol. Be cute and DIE. We've all done it.
      And you're right. The symptoms can and do depend on the particular sick person.
      As crazy as it sounds, that is the one 'good' thing about me having asthma. They rush you right on in.

    • BdRmiz39

      Wow. Sorry to hear that.
      I wonder if Kim Porter just had the wrong doctor, cause they normally consider pneumonia an emergency.
      What the hell was she doing at home?
      Myself and other folks I know who had pneumonia Were Not Released from the hospital UNTIL we were cleared by the doctor meaning All tests were now 'normal'.
      RIP

    • currvalicious

      I believe in my heart that poor Kim misjudged, misread, & didn't understand the full gravity of lobar pneumonia. She didn't recognize the seriousness of the illness she'd become afflicted with. Because had she'd understood, an urgency would've taken hold & she would've survived. Her loved ones also missed the opportunity to assist her & to fight for proper life saving health care on her behalf. This angers me for some reason. It just doesn't feel like this should've happened; not death. There were no drugs found in her system...????

    • currvalicious

      Lord Jesus...God bless you on your continued recovery. God is good.

    • currvalicious

      Damn...Then that only means that these wealthy people aren't doing their due diligence, vetting these people.

    • parisjok

      so sad that she was not in a hospital. I can understand because years ago I had the flu and felt so bad.

      The worst I have ever felt in my life and I went to work anyway ONLY to have to return home feeling even worst. Could not do anything and all I wanted to do was sleep because I felt so bad and was so weak. I called a love one and that was it.

      Just like magic 24 hours later it all disappeared and I was back to myself again. Now after reading this I realize how very very blessed I was back to being normal instead of a love one finding me after I had passed over.

      At least she was in touch with her doctor and did do something about the way she was feeling when I did nothing but go home. when I look back there is just no reasonable answer that I can come up with as to why I did not seek help because it just makes no sense for me to have gambled with my life like that at all.

    • Fodderwing

      Like...why is no one mentioning the obvi. ???????

      She wasn’t done wrong by the medical if she had hospice.

    • Stacey J

      Why all the conspiracy theory comments on here about how Kim Porter died? She was Sean Combs and Al B. Sure's babies momma...not some CIA operative who held national secrets. She made a bad call in judging the gravity of her illness and how to treat it...period. Just cause she had money doesn't mean anything...Prince and Michael Jackson both had personal doctors and look what happened to them. Lawrd...everything is not always a conspiracy.

    • yvette46

      Well, you told me something I didn't know.. I rather go to the hospital because they are equipped with everything needed for an emergency.. Thanks
