    i'm sure more will come out. it is weird when a younger person dies of pneumonia (like brittany murphy and her husband, four months apart). perhaps she had an undiagnosed condition. perhaps she was murdered. who knows. i'll be watching this story develop.

    The medical folks did call in the investigators, but could just be due to the fame / visibility and not a result f somethign suspicious.

    Not really that weird. It kills people of all ages. The Brittany Murphy case was a different matter, that was odd because of her husband dying of the same thing.

    I think investigators were called in for Brittany due to the shady husband, the shady mom, her age, her medical history, and I thought, though I can't remember now, that they thought drugs might be involved and possibly some mental health issues that could have meant suicide as opposed to natural death. IIRC she had diabetes and for some reason I thought she also suffered from asthma or something.

    Brittany's official cause of death is listed as 'pneumonia, with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication'
    Her husband's cause of death included anemia also.

    The whole thing was just bizarre, like you said with her shady mum and husband.

    I feel so bad for her kids. Her death sounds sadly like Brittany Murphy's. RIP.

    Diddy's Ex-Girlfriend, Mother of His Kids, Kim Porter Found Dead at Home at 47

    UPDATE:

    7:00 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Kim went to bed early last night, because she wasn't feeling well and when family members went to wake her Thursday she was non-responsive. Paramedics pronounced Kim dead at her home.

    As for the cause ... we're told she was battling an illness -- either the flu or pneumonia -- over the last few days and was being treated with Saline and vitamins. Authorities are also looking at a recent trip Kim took to Africa, to determine if she contracted a disease.

    No illegal drugs were found.

    The coroner will perform an autopsy and perform toxicology tests.

    5:02 PM PT -- The coroner's van just left Porter's home.

    Kim Porter, the model and actress who dated Diddy for 13 years, was found dead Thursday at her L.A. area home ... TMZ has learned.

    Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to Porter's Toluca Lake home around noon. Police are still on the scene right now.

    According to emergency dispatch audio the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest.

    A source connected to Kim tells us she'd been suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks, but it's still unclear what exactly caused her death. Another source says Kim had contacted her doctor just yesterday complaining she wasn't feeling any better.

    Diddy and Kim's relationship spanned more than a decade with several breakups and makeups. They started dating in 1994 and broke up, for the last time, in 2007.

    They have 3 children together -- twin girls Jessie James and D'Lila were born in 2006, and she had their son, Christian, in 1998. She also has a son, Quincy Brown, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!.

    The whole family was last together, in public, supporting Quincy at last month's premiere for his movie, "The Holiday Calendar."

    Kim worked as both a model and an actress, and she made appearances on Diddy's show, "I Want to Work for Diddy."

    Diddy's rep Cindi Berger tells us, "Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time."

    Kim was 47.

    RIP

    Yeah, it still doesn't sit well with me, tbh. But I'd forgotten everything in her system was legal and that's what scares me. It is so easy to mix up cold meds and have drug interactions. Basically she mixed Vicodin, Tylenol (which is already in the Vicodin), cold medicine, and her inhaler or some other nasal decongestant.

    At 8:00 am on December 20, 2009, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to "a medical request"[33] at the Los Angeles home Murphy and Monjack shared. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom.[5] Firefighters attempted to resuscitate Murphy on the scene. She was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she died at 10:04 after going into cardiac arrest.[5][33][34]Shortly after her death, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told the Associated Press: "It appears to be natural."[8][35][36] An autopsy was performed the day after she died. Her death certificate listed the cause of death as "deferred".[37] On February 4, 2010, the Los Angeles County coroner stated that the primary cause of Murphy's death was pneumonia, with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication. On February 25, 2010, the coroner released a report stating that Murphy had been taking a range of over-the-counter and prescription medications, with the most likely reason being to treat a cold or respiratory infection. These included "elevated levels" of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, L-methamphetamine, and chlorpheniramine. All of the drugs were legal and the death was ruled to be an accident, but the report observed: "the possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels of these medications cannot be discounted, especially in her weakened state."[1]

    In the Brittany case, the house was supposedly covered in interior mould and afterwards, it was razed to the ground. Shady situation which isn't exactly like Kim Porter's.

    Every once in a while, out here, you will hear about someone who came down with the flu, recovered, then a little while later has pulmonary failure and dies. I usually think of it as some kind of exotic complications from the flu, and maybe that the person also had a compromised immune system.

    What's weird about this story is that it said she had flu-like system for weeks. For weeks?

    I don't know, I've had a cold for weeks. It's fucking me up. (It's getting better, though, but I have no patience for being sick.) I used to get a cold and it would last two days tops and I eat a lot healthier now than I used to and I take care of myself. But the last cold I had turned into bronchitis and that was February 2015, so I don't get sick like that often. (I try to limit my fun to shingles and chronic back problems.)

    I just reread fgg's article post and I just saw that she was treated with saline and vitamins. Vitamins? WTF? No antibiotics? And she might have contracted an illness in Africa? OK, but did her doctor not get blood work weeks ago? If I were rich and had halfway decent insurance and I was sick, I'd be like, take all my blood and test it for everything. Maybe it was a combination of her downplaying her symptoms and the doctor not cluing in? Or the doctor's an idiot?

    This is why I'm saying heart infection just because this is how it can go down.

    There's an old saying, "pneumonia, foe to the young, friend to the old" (or something like that). That really does seem to be the case.

    Antibiotics won't help with the flu. Flu is caused by a virus, and antibiotics fight bacteria. I really don't know why so many doctors will give antibiotics to people with the flu or a cold, it's very easy to become resistant to antibiotics, so when you'll have an infection that requires antibiotics it won't help anymore. Happened with my mother, it's not fun at all I can tell you that.
    Having a flu really sucks. There isn't much you can do but the most important part is to rest. If you feel better, take at least one additional day to rest. I can't stress enough how important that is. We had two people in our office ending up having a pmeumonia because they came back to work too soon.

    If it's bacterial pneumonia, antibiotics can be a life-saver.
