Family and friends are mourning the death of Kim Porter.E! News has learned the model and actress was found dead at her Los Angeles-area home Thursday morning. She was 47. “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter,” Diddy’s rep shared with us. “I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.” According to TMZ, the emergency dispatch call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest. A source also shared with the outlet that Kim had been suffering pneumonia for several weeks. At this time, however, it’s too soon to determine the cause of death. Kim previously dated Diddy for 13 years and broke up for the last time in 2007. They remained on friendly terms with Kim sharing a photo of Diddy on Instagram earlier this month. “We may be apart, but we’ll always be together as a family,” she once shared with OK! magazine. “It’s not a situation where two people break up and they can’t stand each other. We’re still friends so it makes for an easy breakup.”

For those who may not recall, the couple had three kids together including their son Christian and twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James. Diddy also helped raise Kim’s son Quincy from a previous relationship with singer/producer Al B. Sure.”HAPPY BIRTHDAY @diddy on this day a GENIUS was born, may you continue to be the Driving Force of ENERGY that GOD created you to be!!” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for giving me the best gifts of life our CHILDREN !!” Fans may recall Kim appearing on shows including Wicked Wicked Games and a guest-star role in Single Ladies. She also made an appearance on Diddy’s show I Want to Work for Diddy.
But perhaps her greatest role was being a mom to her children. “Kim is an incredible mother to our children. We’ve been part of each other’s lives for many years and I have always admired her courage and strength,” Diddy previously shared with JET magazine. “We’re the best of friends.” Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kim’s family during this difficult time.
