According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office, Kevin Samuels died from natural causes.

According to the report, obtained by TMZ, Samuels's heart gave out due to high blood blood pressure (hypertension).

The medical examiner released the cause of death two months after the 57-year-old relationship guru suffered a cardiac arrest and died in his Atlanta apartment on May 5, 2022.

The autopsy results determined his heart failure was brought on by the prolonged effects of high blood pressure.

Blood pressure means the force of blood against the walls inside the arteries. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 and below. High blood pressure is 140/90 and above.

The pressure in the arteries is measured by 2 numbers: systolic and diastolic. The top number (systolic) means the pressure inside the arteries when the heart beats (contracts).

The bottom number (diastolic) means the pressure in the arteries between beats when the heart is at rest.

Blood pressure readings of 130/80 to 139/89 are considered stage 1 hypertension. Your doctor will prescribe blood pressure medications and/or diuretics (water pills) to bring your blood pressure down to normal.

Your doctor will also suggest lifestyle changes such as no added salt in your diet, and exercise at least 150 minutes a week.

A blood pressure reading of 180/120 is considered a hypertensive crisis because such high pressure in your arteries can cause strokes, heart disease, and death.

Symptoms of chronic (longterm) high blood pressure includes headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath, nosebleeds, weakness and fatigue.

Samuels may not have known he had high blood pressure, which is why hypertension is called the "silent killer."

Kevin Samuels grew a large following of mostly fatherless males on his YouTube channel. He was considered the leader of the so-called "manosphere" movement, a group of men who yearn for the traditional male, female gender roles.

Samuels was apparently addicted to Red Bull energy drinks, which may have been a contributing factor to his longterm high blood pressure.

Just when Kevin Samuels' followers thought they found his successor, their hopes have been shattered.

Jesse Lee Peterson, a Los Angeles-based pastor, was a shining star in the growing "manosphere" movement.

The manosphere is a testosterone-fueled community of masculine, conservative men who value the nearly forgotten traditional male and female gender roles.

The men of the manosphere were crushed when their leader, Kevin Samuels, died of a cardiac arrest in his Atlanta apartment on May 5.

Samuels' distraught followers turned to the Internet in search of another fearless leader.

They turned to Pastor Peterson, the president of the manosphere, and soon crowned him as Kevin's replacement. Pastor Peterson shared some of the same traditional gender norms as Samuels and his followers.

Peterson believes women should stay in their place and that men should be the head of the household.

According to The Daily Beast, Peterson once claimed that a woman who orgasms during sex is "becoming a man".

Peterson is also a vocal anti-gay activist. He once called gay people "Satan," and said that "radical homosexuals are evil."

So it came as a surprise when the pastor's homosexual hookups came forward and accused him of being a gay groomer.

In June, Milo Yiannopoulos, who now interns for Marjorie Taylor Greene, released a nearly 30-minute investigation into Peterson called "Amazing Disgrace."

In the video, a Church Militant reporter interviewed two men who alleged they had sexual contact with Peterson.

Church Militant also spoke with a man named Patrick Rooney (right), a past lover who knew the pastor for 30 years.

Rooney said that, soon after they met, Peterson asked him if he was gay. Rooney described Peterson doing "horseplay" to get closer to him. "He would grab me and we would wrestle around a little bit, and I would feel his private parts against me," Rooney said.

"I'm very sorry to have Jesse's situation damage the conservative movement," said Rooney.

Peterson, who claims he is celibate, has avoided the scandal by not returning reporters' phone calls or emails.

In June, a caller to his online show managed to get a question in about the controversy. "I'm just kind of confused. Why haven't you addressed the issue of the gay documentary?" she asked.

"Uh, it's not concerning to me," Peterson told his audience before hanging up on her.

"What a wicked woman!" he declared.

Bryant criticized Samuels for insulting single women over 35 by calling them "leftovers."

"How can a man say that you are of low value after 35? How can a man say that you do not have the level of traction of a high-powered man when that man has got to get a GoFundMe for his funeral?"

Bryant issued an apology in a new sermon this past Sunday, Pastor Bryant apologized to Samuels' family, the community and his brothers in the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

"An apology is only messed up if you match it with an excuse. An apology comes with ownership... When people hold you accountable that does not make them a hater. When people hold you accountable, that means they have an expectation...," he said.
 

Samuels' family has denied he died broke. However, others say Samuels portrayed himself as something he wasn't: a high-value man.

A woman posted a video on TikTok that shows Samuels rented a basement apartment in a home in 2021. He also parked his BMW on top of cardboard in the street outside the home to catch oil leaks.

Controversial YouTube influencer Kevin Samuels appeared on last night's episode of "Atlanta" titled "Rich Wigga, Poor Wigga,".

The episode, directed by Donald Glover, features Samuels and comedian George Wallace grilling a biracial high school student who is passing for white.

Aaron's father is Black, but Aaron identifies as white.

Samuels plays a wealthy philanthropist named Robert S. Lee, who offers to pay college tuition for all Black students in addition to renaming the high school after himself.

Hoping to get college tuition to Attend Arizona State with his white girlfriend, Aaron goes to a gym where Lee (Samuels) is holding auditions to authenticate students' Blackness before paying their tuition.

Samuels, Wallace, and other elders test Aaron's knowledge of Black culture to prove he's Black.

Aaron is asked to "name six things that mix with Hennessy" and explain "why The Five Heartbeats broke up."

Samuels and Wallace ultimately agree that Aaron isn't Black and he storms out. Aaron plans to build a flamethrower and burn his high school down that night.

When he arrives at the school, he sees Nigerian student Felix, who was also told he wasn't Black enough by Lee. Felix has a flamethrower, too, and he also plans to burn the high school down.

Aaron tells Felix he is not really Black because he has a "culture to pull from" and "country to go back to."

After arguing, they chase each other around the school with their flamethrowers. Felix tries to shoot Aaron, but the police arrive and one cop shoots Felix.

Samuels arrives at the school in his bathrobe. "My school," he says, as he surveys the damage from the flamethrowers.

Samuels walks over as Felix is loaded into an ambulance and says "You really wanted that scholarship, didn't you, boy?"

He then hands Felix a tuition check and tells him that "getting shot by the police is the Blackest thing a person can do."

Samuels' family has since denied that a GoFundMe was created to bury the YouTube influencer in Oklahoma City.

A GoFundMe page was supposedly launched by family friend Melanie King with a goal of $50,000. The page has since been removed.

According to Blacksportsonline, Samuels died broke with just $1,000 in his bank account.

However, Samuels had over 1.4 million subscribers and 400 million views on his YouTube channel. Google pays $2,000 per 1 million views (you do the math).

That was just revenue from his videos. He also received revenue from Patreon, Cash App, his lifestyle consulting brand, and other sources. So, the math isn't mathing.

Vivica A. Fox said she hopes people learn a lesson about karma after Kevin Samuels died.

Samuels passed away from an apparent cardiac arrest at age 56 in his Buckhead apartment on May 5.

Vivica responded to comic actor Marlon Wayans saying Samuels' diatribes were "healing".

"This man was a hypocrite, in my opinion," she said, referring to Samuels.

"I didn't find anything about this man to be healing. He insulted African American women on a consistent basis.

"To me, he was a shock jock. I hope this is teaching folks a lesson about the karma that you put out, the negativity that you put out in the world. That when karma comes knocking at your door, she might not be so kind..."

She continued:

"So, you know, the fact that he keeled over real quick and was supposedly with a woman - that we don't yet know the nationality - um, rest in peace.

"I heard he had an apartment... Talking about how to get a man like him — like he was some great catch," she said. "He was faking the funk for the 'Gram."

Black Twitter is currently ripping Vivica to shreds, but others say Vivica is entitled to her opinions just as Kevin was entitled to his.

As she grew frustrated with the dispatcher, she said, "Are you listening to me? Oh my god, it's Kevin f---ing Samuels!"

She also asked the dispatcher to call the front desk for an AED defibrillator. But there was no one working the front desk that morning.

The dispatcher connected the nurse to a medic who then coached her on the number of chest compressions.

She grew frustrated again and threatened to hang up the phone.

"Either I hang up with you, or you call downstairs to the front desk to get me a f---ing AED right now! He's turning blue," she said.

Samuels, 56, was pronounced dead on arrival at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta.

Rapper T.I. rushed to Samuels' defense, saying the relationship guru is being bullied in death.

In a video on Instagram, the aspiring comedian called Black women "Grouchy, miserable, despicable mutha------s."

"Y'all bullying a dead man basically," he said.

"You're ganging up on a dead man. Sh-t is... a travesty of justice. I can't stand it. I can't stand it. I ain't gon' let y'all bully this dead man. Let this man rest in peace. Whatever he did, he did it and he gone."

Bloggers believe the mystery woman is the same one who called 911 to report Samuels was "injured" in his Buckhead apartment on Thursday.

But others speculate that she was probably a housekeeper or a platonic friend, since they seemed familiar with each other.

According to a police report, a woman who identified herself as a nurse said she met Samuels on Wednesday and spent the night with him.

On the morning of May 5th, she said he awoke and complained of chest pain before collapsing on top of her. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at Piedmont Hospital.

Update: The nurse's name was misspelled in the police report. An RN with the correctly spelled name is licensed in the state of Kansas. She reportedly works as a traveling nurse at an Atlanta hospital.
 
Originally published on May 7, 2022:

Mystery surrounds the 32-year-old "nurse" who was with Kevin Samuels when he died on Thursday morning.

On Friday several media outlets published a police report revealing the woman's name as O.A. She claimed she met the relationship guru on Wednesday evening and spent the night with him.

O.A. told police that Samuels awoke around 6 a.m. Thursday and complained of chest pain before losing consciousness and collapsing on top of her.

He was pronounced dead on arrival at Piedmont Hospital.

A search of social media platforms turned up dozens of women with the name O.A.

However, one IG user with the same name identified herself as a 32-year-old RN in Atlanta.

The person used a stolen photo of an Instagram model as her profile pic. Why would an RN do that?

A commenter on a popular message board claims the woman is a traveling RN from Kansas who works at a hospital here in Atlanta. But a search of the Kansas Board of Nursing does not turn up that name as an RN or LPN.

Also, there is no license under that name in Georgia, Florida, Alabama or Tennessee. She has to be licensed temporarily in Georgia if she works at a hospital here.

Did the police ask for identification to confirm who the woman said she was?

Why isn't she licensed anywhere if she is a nurse?

So many questions.

The Internet is still buzzing over the untimely death of YouTube relationship guru Kevin Samuels.

Samuel's mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, confirmed he died of a cardiac arrest on Thursday morning. Paramedics found him in full cardiac arrest and unresponsive on the floor of his Buckhead apartment.

A cardiac arrest means the heart suddenly stops beating and blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. The person passes out (from lack of oxygenated blood to the brain) and stops breathing.

Brain cells begin dying about 1 minute later if a heartbeat is not restored.

The survival rate for people who experience a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital is less than 10 percent.

A cardiac arrest is usually caused by an irregular or abnormal heartbeat (arrhythmia), underlying medical conditions (such as heart disease), street drugs, prescription medications, smoking, or trauma (gunshot or stab wound).

Most laypeople - even healthcare workers - use the terms "cardiac arrest" and "heart attack" interchangeably. But they are very different.

Approximately 90% of people hospitalized with a heart attack will survive.

A cardiac arrest is usually not survivable without immediate medical intervention.

Those diagnosed with heart disease are at higher risk of suffering a cardiac arrest.

Cardiac arrests can also occur in young people with no signs of heart disease. In fact, cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death among young athletes.

More details have emerged about Kevin Samuels' untimely death at age 56. According to a police report obtained by Phillip Lewis, senior editor of The Huff Post, Samuels suffered a postcoital cardiac arrest in his Atlanta apartment.

According to the police report, a nurse named Ortencia Alcantara called 911 to report a "person injured" on Thursday morning.

Medics arrived to the Residence Buckhead Atlanta apartments to find an unresponsive man, later identified as Samuels.

Alcantara, 32, told police she met Samuels on Wednesday evening and spent the night with him. The next morning, Alcantara said he complained of chest pains before collapsing on top of her.

She moved him to the floor to begin chest compressions while calling 911. She asked the dispatcher to call downstairs to the front desk for a portable defibrillator to restore his heartbeat.

A defibrillator is used to restore a heartbeat to the normal rhythm when the heartbeat is irregular (arrhythmia).

Samuels was transported to Piedmont Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Samuels' mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, told NBC News she learned of her son's death through social media.

"That was a terrible thing for social media to put that out," she said in a phone call Friday. "I didn't even know. I hadn't even been notified. All I'm doing is requesting that people pray for us."
