Conservative political commentator Lynette Hardaway, alias “Diamond” of Diamond and Silk, suddenly passed away in early January, raising questions about the circumstances of her demise. However, a death certificate recently obtained by the Associated Press verified that the reason was a heart issue brought on by a persistently high blood pressure.
The unexpected passing of Diamond, raised speculations from the public, who expressed on social media that Covid-19 was the cause of her death. Reportedly, the broad assumptions were formed after an unsourced, and since-deleted, online report was released in November alleging Hardaway had been hospitalized as a result of Covid-19.
However, both Hardaway and her sister Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, denied that Covid-19 was the cause of the hospitalization.
During a memorial service held for Hardaway in Lafayette, NC, Richardson sparked speculation again after she mentioned Covid-19 was a possible factor in her sister’s death. She predicted poisoning from another vaccinated individual.
NBC News reported that the Covid virus was not listed on Hardaway’s death certificate as a cause of contributing factor.
The Hoke County Register of Deeds provided the death certificate that was signed by a local doctor. Reportedly, no autopsy has been performed for Hardaway.
According to the GiveSendGo fundraiser set up for Hardaway, The Diamond and Silk Chit Chat Live Show is set to resume on February 1.
“I will NOT stand idly by and let all that she worked hard to achieve, be in vain, Richardson said on the fundraiser’s page. “This is a spiritual warfare and as I continue to fight here on earth, she will begin to fight in spirit because WE HAVE A COUNTRY TO SAVE.”
