Kim Porter, Mother of Diddy’s Kids, Dead at 47
Model Kim Porter, the mother of Diddy's children, has passed away at the age of just 47.
According to TMZ, who reported the news this afternoon (Nov. 15), police were called to the scene of Porter's Los Angeles home after she had suffered cardiac arrest. Their sources say that she had been battling flu-like symptoms during 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.
At around 12 p.m. PST, law enforcement received a call from Porter's residence, and in audio of the emergency dispatch call, you can hear the operator describing the woman's condition, mentioning that she suffered from cardiac arrest.
In a statement given to The Hollywood Reporter, a rep for Diddy confirmed the death of porter. "Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time," reads the statement.
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. The first is Christian Combs, who was born back in 1998. The second and third were Jessie James and D'Lila, two twin girls who were born in 2006.
