Kim Porter, the former girlfriend of P Diddy and mother of his three biological children is dead.
The 47 former model was said to have been suffering from pneumonia in recent weeks and died at her residence in California. Reports say that emergency services were called to attend to “someone having a heart attack” but died before she could be taken to the hospital. The exact cause of her death has not been announced.
Diddy’s rep Cindi Berger: “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they got a call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon. According to emergency dispatch audio the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest.
A source connected to Kim says she’d been suffering pneumonia for several weeks, but it’s still unclear what exactly caused her death.
Diddy and Kim’s relationship spanned more than a decade with several breakups and makeups. They started dating in 1994 and broke up, for the last time, in 2000.
Kim and Diddy have 3 children together — twin girls Jessie James and D’Lila were born in 2006, and she had their son, Christian Combs, in 1998. She also has a son, Quincy, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!
Porter worked as both a model and an actress, and she made appearances on Diddy’s show, “I Want to Work for Diddy.”
We’re in shock. RIP. 💔
