Diddy Wife Kim Porter, Found Dead at 47, Kim Porter, the Ex-Girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Comb

Kim Porter, the mother of four of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ children and a longtime partner of the musician before their 2007 breakup, was discovered dead in her house on Thursday. Her age was 47.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Porter’s death, noting that officers responded to an investigation at 11:40 a.m. where they found an unresponsive female identified as Porter and later declared her deceased on scene. A posted emergency dispatch call by TMZ indicated cardiac arrest as the possible cause; sources also mentioned Porter had been suffering from pneumonia for some time prior to her passing away.

A Complex Relationship

Porter and Combs entered into an on/off relationship in the 1990s, leading to three children: Christian (20), D’Lila Star (11) and Jessie James (11). Combs also raised Quincy (27) from Porter’s previous relationship with singer Al B Sure! as his own. He considers Quincy his son.

Their relationship was marked by both love and turmoil. After first splitting in 1999 and engaging in a court battle over Christian’s child support payments, Combs briefly dated Jennifer Lopez for two years prior to reconciling with Porter in 2003 before their final split occurred in 2007.

Family Dynamics and Legacy

Porter was not only a loving mother but a key influence in Combs’ life and career. Although their romantic relationship ended, they maintained close ties; Combs has often thanked his children’s mothers for their strength and intelligence; in an interview with PEOPLE magazine he expressed his thanks: “I have truly been blessed to have had some incredible relationships that have given birth to my children from such strong, intelligent, beautiful black women – they [are] my best friends – my hat goes off to them all!”

Combs is also father to Justin, 24 with Misa Hylton-Brim and Chance, 12 with Sarah Chapman from previous relationships.
