The sudden passing of Kim Porter, model/actress, and mother to three of Diddy’s children has shaken the hip-hop sphere.

Kim Porter, former model and mother of three of Diddy’s kids, was found dead in her L.A. home on Thursday (November 15). According to TMZ, Kim, 47, had been suffering from flu-like symptoms and possibly pneumonia, but the cause of her death is still unclear.

Kim and Diddy dated on and off since 1994, with their final public break up taking place in 2007. They have three children – Jessie James and D’Lila, who were born in 2006, and their son Christian, who was born in 1998. Kim’s son Quincy, who she had with Al B. Sure!, has a close bond with Diddy. Kim’s publicist confirmed the news with the media, telling them, “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”


Many celebrities are sending their condolences and well wishes to Diddy and his children as they cope with this tragic loss.
