Medical examiners have determined a cause of death for Kevin Samuels.

According to TMZ, Georgia’s Fulton County Medical Examiner determined that the 57-year-old controversial YouTuber died of hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. It was also noted that Atenolol, a medicine used to treat hypertension, was found in Samuels’ system. The death was classified as due to natural causes.

As previously reported, Samuels died in May after collapsing in his home with a woman who has not been publicly identified. According to the incident report provided to ABC News by the Atlanta Police Department, the woman stated that she met Samuels the evening prior and spent the night with him. Upon Samuels’ complaint of chest pain, the woman attempted to help him, but he fell on top of her, after which she called 911.

Samuels was later transported to Piedmont Hospital for care.
