Actor Sidney Poitier’s cause of death revealed

Less than two weeks after the sad news of his death, the actual cause of Sidney Poitier’s death has been disclosed.

Recall that on January 6 the legendary entertainer who was the first black man to win the Academy Award for Best Actor, passed away at home in Beverly Hills. The death was reported to the coroner’s office, but a biopsy and autopsy were not performed at the time.

In a new death certificate obtained by TMZ on Tuesday January 18, it was revealed that Sidney died from a combination of heart failure, Alzheimer’s dementia and prostate cancer.

Sidney was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 66 in 1993, but was able to beat the disease after successfully undergoing surgery. His struggles with Alzheimer’s dementia were not as publicly known.
