Kim Porter, former long-term girlfriend of Hip Hop star Diddy and mother to three of his children, has been found dead aged 47.
Representatives of Diddy, real name Sean Combs, confirmed the actress and model died at her home in LA on Thursday.
TMZ reported law enforcement sources as telling the site that authorities were called to Porter’s LA home on Thursday and that a 911 call reported “a patient in cardiac arrest.” A source further told the site that Porter, 47, had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks, but that it was still unclear how she died.
Diddy and Porter were a couple on-and-off from 1994 until they split for good in 2007.
Together they have a 20-year-old son and 11-year-old twin daughters. Combs also has three other children with other women.
