Cause of death of pro-Trump influencer ‘Diamond’ of ‘Diamond and Silk’ revealed

The cause of death for pro-Trump influencer Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway was confirmed to be heart illness.

Diamond and Silk’s social media sister Hardaway died on January 8th. She was 51 years old, according to a report by The Daily Wire. Despite internet speculation, “Diamond” died of heart illness caused by chronic high blood pressure, according to a death certificate obtained by The Associated Press on Monday.

According to People magazine, her sister, Rochelle Richardson, a.k.a. Silk, recently said that she and her husband were with Diamond when the influencer stated, “I can’t breathe,” before collapsing to the floor.

Hardaway’s death was reported on social media by former President Donald Trump.

“Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans,” Trump shared in his post. “Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina.”

“Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing,” his message added. “There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!”

Diamond’s death was later confirmed by the social media duo’s official Twitter account: “The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity!” the tweet read.

“Diamond blazed a trail, founded on her passion and love for the entire race of humanity,” a message on the fundraiser page read.

“The memory of her passing should forever remain in our hearts,” it added. “In this time of grief, please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family but remember and celebrate the gift that she gave us all!”

The Diamond and Silk Twitter account posted a link to a donation page for her funeral. Herneitha Rochelle Hardaway Richardson, better known as “Silk,” will receive the monies.

“The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity!” the fundraiser said. “Diamond blazed a trail, founded on her passion and love for the entire race of humanity. The memory of her passing should forever remain in our hearts. In this time of grief, please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family but remember and celebrate the gift that she gave us all!”

The pair were conservative activists who used live-stream videos to discuss politics. The two appeared on conservative television networks on occasion and routinely attended demonstrations supporting the former president.

“Diamond and Silk found social media fame before the 2016 election for their videos supporting Trump’s first White House bid,” Mediaite reported. “Neither wavered in their support of him during his term in office or in the two years since President Joe Biden was elected.”

They both endorsed Trump when he announced his third campaign for the White House late last year. “President Trump has our full and complete endorsement!” stated on Twitter.
