TMZ reports that P.Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Kim Porter was found dead on Thursday at her L.A. area home. The police got a call from her Lake home around noon and are still on the scene right now. Sources to the website say that she has been suffering flu symptoms and possibly had pneumonia, for several weeks now. It is still unclear as to what caused the death.
The model and actress was in a relationship with Diddy for 13 years – the two started dating in 1994 and broke up, Diddy also dated Jennifer Lopez for two years before he and Porter reconciled in 2003.
They split for the final time in 2007. The two share three children together – twin girls Jessie James and D’Lila and she had their son, Christian. She also has a son, Quincy Brown, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure.
People magazine reached out to Diddy’s reps to confirm all this: “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”
Our thought and prayers are with Kim’s family at this difficult time.
