Kim Porter, Mother of Diddy’s Children, Dead at 47
Porter was found unresponsive Thursday at her Los Angeles home, where paramedics pronounced her dead. The cause was not immediately clear, and an autopsy will be performed, the L.A. County coroner’s office said.
“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” Combs’ publicist Cyndi Berger said in a statement.
Combs and Porter, a former model and occasional actress from Georgia, were a couple on-and-off from 1994 until they split for good in 2007.
Their children are a 20-year-old son, Christian, and 11-year-old twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jessie James. Combs also has three other children from other relationships.
Porter also has a 27-year-old son who was largely raised with Diddy, Quincy Brown, from a previous relationship with singer Al B. Sure. Brown, an actor, appears on the Fox series Star and has had a handful of other TV and film roles. Most recently, Brown starred in the Netflix Christmas film, The Holiday Calendar.
During her acting career, Porter appeared on the TV series Wicked Wicked Gamesin 2006 and 2007 and in the film Mama I Want to Sing in 2011.
Many people took to social media to mourn her and offer condolences.
“I send my condolences to her friends and family. She was loved and will be missed dearly. I know Puff is hit right now, he loved her for real, soul mate type sh*t,” 50 Cent wrote.
