So heartbreaking! Diddy’s ex and baby mama Kim Porter has been found dead in her LA home. We’ve got the details on her shocking death at just 47-years-old.
This is just so tragic. Kim Porter, the former model who was Diddy‘s longtime partner and mother to three of his kids has died in her LA area home at just 47-years-old. TMZ reports that around noon on Nov. 15, paramedics were called to her Toluca Lake home and dispatch audio indicates she was suffering from cardiac arrest. The site reports that she had been suffering from pneumonia recently, but it’s unclear if that was the cause of her death. Kim’s passing was confirmed by her rep to Page Six. “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.” The site also reported that there will be an autopsy to determine Kim’s cause of death.
“On the morning of Nov. 15, Kimberly Antwinette Porter (DOB: 12/15/70) was discovered unresponsive in her home located in the 10300 block of Woodbridge Street in Toluca Lake,” the County of Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said in a Nov. 15 statement. “Authorities were called and Porter was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:40 a.m. At this time, an autopsy is pending and a cause of death has not been determined.”
Kim was the mom to Diddy’s kids Christian, 20, and twins Jessie James , 11, and D’Lila, 11. The pair began dating after on and off from 1994 to 2007 but never married. In addition to her children with Diddy, Kim has a 27-year-old son Quincy from her relationship with Al B. Sure. The longtime couple took a break from 1999-2001 when Diddy — then Puff Daddy — entered into a high profile romance with one of his “great loves” Jennifer Lopez. That was around the time he launched his Sean John clothing line. She ultimately tired of his wandering ways and Diddy returned to dating Kim.
Kim’s friends began sending out their condolences via Twitter upon news of her shocking death at such a young age. New mom Gabrielle Union immediately thought about how this will impact her children, tweeting “This is awful! Praying so hard for her children and her lover ones!!
#RIPKimPorter sending so much love to her babies. My God!”
