Actress and model Kim Porter, who dated Sean 'Diddy' Combs on and off for over a decade and is the mother of Diddy's three children, passed away at the age of 47. She was found dead in her Los Angeles-area home on November 15.
According to TMZ, the police were called to Porter's Los Angeles home after she had suffered a cardiac arrest. Citing sources, TMZ reported that she had been battling flu-like symptoms (what might have been a battle with pneumonia) in the weeks preceding her death. Their sources also say Porter had called her doctor just yesterday telling them that her condition hadn't improved.
Around 12 pm PST, law enforcement received a call from Porter's residence, and in the audio of the emergency dispatch call, published by the publication, you can hear the operator describing the woman's condition, mentioning that she suffered from cardiac arrest. However, no official cause of death has been released yet and Diddy has yet to speak on this matter.
"Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time," Porter's representative Cindy Berger told TMZ.
Diddy and Porter had dated on and off from 1994 until 2007 and, during that time, Diddy adopted Porter's son Quincy Brown before Porter gave birth to three children they had together. They had their first child, Christian Combs (who is an artist known as King Combs), in 1998. The second and third were Jessie James and D'Lila, twin girls who were born in 2006.
Porter was born in Columbus, Ga., in 1971. After graduating from Columbus High School in 1988, she moved to Atlanta to pursue a modeling career and appeared on the covers of Runway and Essence magazines. She also debuted in television shows including 'Law & Order' and 'Wicked Wicked Games,' and also had roles in the films 'The Brothers' and 'Mama, I Want to Sing.'
