No mystery here!
After the legendary B.B. King passed away on May 14 of this year, two of his daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King — he has 11 children in total — were crying foul play! They believed that their father had been poisoned by his business manager LaVerne Toney and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson!

It seemed a bit out there and a kind of ridiculous, but let’s be honest, stranger things have happened!
Well now the verdict is in and the autopsy report has been released stating that the blue singer’s cause of death was Alzheimer’s disease. His health was also poor due to coronary disease, heart failure and Type 2 diabetes!
Back in May, after Karen and Patty made these allegations, Brent Bryson, B.B.’s lawyer, called the claims “ridiculous” and that:

“Ms. Toney did everything she could to carry out the wishes of Mr. King while he was alive, and continues to carry out Mr. King’s wishes after his death.”

Though it would be quite the scandal to discover he was poisoned, we’re glad that wasn’t the case as the world is filled with enough scandal as it is!
