Kim Porter, Mother Of 3 Children With Puff Daddy, Has Been Found Dead
For much of the 1990s and 2000s, Kim Porter was Puff Daddy’s companion. They have three children together. Today (November 15), the 47-year-old Columbus, Georgia native was found dead in her Toluca Lake, California home. A representative for Kim Porter confirmed the news and asked for privacy for the family.
Details have not been made public surrounding the cause of Porter’s death. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kim Porter was found unresponsive in her home late this morning, where she was eventually pronounced dead. Authorities were reportedly contacted after a 911 call that Porter was in cardiac arrest. TMZ reports that she had recently battled either the flu or pneumonia.
A onetime professional model and actress, Porter previously had a relationship R&B star Al B. Sure. The couple had a child, Quincey Brown in 1991, according to IMDB. During the rise of Bad Boy Records, Porter entered a relationship with Combs. They remained together, on and off, through the late 2000s. The couple’s three children are Christian Combs, along with twin daughters, Jessie Combs and D’Lila. Puffy addressed his son on 1997’s “What You Gon’ Do.” Since a 2007 split, the couple remained amicable and often spent holidays together and made special appearances as a family.
Like his father, Christian Combs has gone into music under the moniker King Combs. A Bad Boy Entertainment artist, he recently released “Love You Better,” with Chris Brown.
Kim Porter had roles in The Brothers, The System Within, and the VH1 series Single Ladies.
Diddy has not yet addressed the loss publicly. Ambrosia For Heads extends condolences to the Porter and Combs families.
