Kimbo Slice was told he had been suffering from congestive heart failure in the days before his death and desperately needed a heart transplant … this according to a hospital report.
The report — which was given to the Broward County Medical Examiner’s office — says Slice was admitted to Northwest Medical Center on June 3rd and told he had a liver mass and congestive heart failure.
Doctors told Slice’s family that he needed a heart transplant — and appeared to be taking measures to transport him to a clinic in Cleveland on Monday night … but he died before that could happen.
Slice was pronounced dead around 7:30 PM local time.
Also worth noting … the report also states 42-year-old Slice did not have a history of drug use.
As we previously reported, the medical examiner’s office is not doing an autopsy — and now it’s clear why.
