“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” Sean “Diddy” Combs’ rep Cindi Berger told Fox News on Thursday.
Porter, who dated Diddy for 13 years and has three children — 11-year-old twin daughters Jessie James and D’Lila, and son Christian Combs, 20 — with the music mogul and businessman was found dead on Thursday, per TMZ. She also shared 27-year-old son Quincy from her previous relationship with R&B singer Al B. Sure!
Los Angeles police told ET that North Hollywood officers responded to a death investigation call at a Toluca Lake, California, residence. A cause of death has not been announced, but a source told TMZ, who broke the news, that Porter had been suffering from pneumonia.
Porter rose to fame when she began dating Diddy in 1994. The couple dated on and off for 13 years before splitting for good in 2007. The two shared twin daughters Jessie James and D’Lila, 11, and son Christian, 20. Porter also had a 27-year-old son, Quincy, from her former marriage to producer Al B. Sure!
The actress appeared on the TV series “Wicked Wicked Games” in 2006 and 2007 and in the film “Mama I Want to Sing” in 2011.
Porter and Diddy broke up and reconciled several times. In 2002, amid a breakup, Porter even sued Combs for more child support, but the two got back together and welcomed their twins in 2006. Six months later, they broke up for good. Porter said it was her decision to leave Diddy.
