Kimora Lee Simmons, producer Dallas Austin and more mourned Porter on social media.

Although it was reported that Porter was suffering pneumonia in the days prior to her untimely passing, no one yet knows what caused her death. An autopsy was inconclusive and the cause of death has been deferred.

“The cause of death was deferred pending additional tests,” a statement from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner said. Her body has since been released from our facility.”
