A model and actress who appeared on P Diddy’s show “I Want to Work for Diddy” and had an on-again, off-again relationship with Diddy from 1994 to 2007 has died. TMZ reports that Kim Porter was found dead today at her home in the Toluca Lake area of Los Angeles.
Porter reportedly suffered cardiac arrest. She was 47.
“Law enforcement sources tell us they got a call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon,” TMZ reports, adding: “A source connected to Kim tells us she’d been suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks, but it’s still unclear what exactly caused her death. Another source says Kim had contacted her doctor just yesterday complaining she wasn’t feeling any better.”
Porter was the mother of three of Diddy’s six children — twin girls Jessie James and D’Lila, born in 2006, and a son, Christian, born in 1998. She also had a son, Quincy Brown, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!.
“The whole family was last together, in public, supporting Quincy at last month’s premiere for his movie, ‘The Holiday Calendar,'” TMZ reports.
