Sidney Poitier's cause of death has been revealed, 11 days after his passing.
According to his death certificate, the legendary actor died from a combination of heart failure, Alzheimer's dementia, and prostate cancer.
The Bahamas-born actor made history as the first Black man to ever win an Academy Award for best actor in 1963. He's played in legendary films such as Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, A Raisin in the Sun, To Sir, With Love, In the Heat of the Night, and Uptown Saturday Night.
Poitier's career began when he was age 16 after moving to the United States with his family.
Hollywood was gutted when Poitier died, with several of today's A-listers taking to social media to pay tribute to the man who paved the way for so many.
But no one had kinder words than his own daughter, Sydney Poitier.
Posting a loving photo with her arms wrapped around her dad, Sydney wrote, "There are no words for this. No real way to prepare for this. No prose beautiful enough, no speech eloquent enough to capture the essence of my dad."
"My grief is because I lost my dad, but it is also because the world lost so much goodness," she added.
His death was confirmed on January 7 by the Bahamas Foreign Affairs' office. Poitier's career didn't stop with the film industry. He was praised as an activist. Not only did he meet Martin Luther King Jr. in 1960, but he also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from former President Barack Obama in 2009.
