Diddy’s ex-lover and mother of his children found dead
Kim Porter, a woman who dated rapper Diddy for 13 years and is the mother of three of his children, has died aged 47.
The US model was found dead at her Toluca Lake, California, home.
A source close to Diddy told People magazine that the rapper was heartbroken over Porter’s sudden passing.
“Diddy is devastated and shocked. He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn’t work,” they told the magazine.
“They were still a family.”
The model-and-actress who had sons Christian, 20, and twins Jessie James and D’Lila, 12, with the ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ hitmaker, and 26-year-old Quincy from a previous relationship had been suffering from “flu-like” symptoms, possibly pneumonia, for weeks when emergency services were called to her house on Thursday.
According to emergency dispatch audio obtained by TMZ, the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest, while a source told the website Kim had contacted her doctor on Wednesday to complain she wasn’t feeling any better.
A spokesperson for Diddy has appealed for privacy following her passing. However, Diddy took to Instagram after hearing the sad news.
Diddy, 49, also has Justin and Chance, 11, from previous relationships and recently admitted he and all the mothers of his kids get along well together.
