Diamond’s Cause of Death Revealed As Death Certificate Details Are Released
Lynette Hardaway, part of the social media influencer duo, “Diamond and Silk,” sparked a series of controversies over the years.
Her ardent support of former President Donald Trump, during and after his presidency, and her vocal opposition to vaccine mandates led her to be deplatformed by several social media sites but picked up as a guest contributor on Fox and Newsmax.
Her unexpected death on Jan. 8 at age 51 prompted her sister, Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, to reach out to former President Donald Trump, who promoted, attended and covered expenses for Hardaway’s funeral and memorial service.
During the “celebration of life ceremony,” Richardson praised Trump for his support, saying:
“When I told him that Diamond had passed, he said, ‘ohhh,’ he was heartbroken. He said, ‘OK, we’re going to have a nice gathering for her, a nice funeral,’ and I said oh no, we don’t have a body. We followed her wishes, and we cremated her.”
Richardson continued: “[Trump] said, ‘OK, I want you to do whatever you want, I want you to have the best of whatever you want, and whatever you want Diamond would have, and I don’t want you to worry about paying for nothing.’”
Richardson also revealed her suspicion that her sister’s death was connected to her recent COVID-19 vaccination. She said:
“What I want to say to everybody is don’t you dare call me a conspiracy theorist because I saw it happen. I saw how it happened. I was there when it happened. And it happened suddenly. I want America to wake up and pay attention.”
“Something ain’t right. It’s time to investigate what’s really going on here and get some answers to why are people falling dead suddenly.”
On Monday, the Associated Press noted that Hardaway’s death certificate indicated the cause of death was “heart disease due to chronic high blood pressure.”
Advocates of COVID-19 vaccinations noted that the death certificate did not list COVID or the COVID vaccine as a cause or contributing factor in Hardaway’s death.
Some, however, believe the death certificate’s notation of a heart issue could indicate myocarditis, which has been featured prominently in media as linked to COVID vaccinations.
Notably, the death certificate issued by the Hoke County Register of Deeds was signed by a local doctor, not a coroner, and no autopsy was performed.
