Rapper Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Kim Porter has passed away unexpectedly. Porter was found dead on Thursday, November 15, at the age of 47.
TMZ was first to report the news. Diddy's rep confirmed the tragic news to Us Weekly.
“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter,” the musician’s rep tells Us in a statement. “I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”
US Weekly also received a statement from LAPD Officer Jeff Lee. He told the outlet that the police are investigating if there was foul play involved.
He said, “I can confirm that there is an investigation underway in the 10300 block of Woodbridge. That call came out at 11:38 this morning. And there is a female deceased at the scene. We are sending our homicide detectives over there to find out whether or not foul play was involved.”
According to TMZ, police received a call to help a person who was in cardiac arrest at the residence around noon on Thursday. Porter had reportedly pneumonia for several weeks before her passing.
The actress dated Diddy, 49, on and off from 1994 until 2007. The pair shared three children: son Christian, 20, and twin daughters Jessie James and D’Lila, 11. Porter was also the mother of son Quincy, 27, from another previous relationship.
Diddy shared a cryptic Instagram post earlier on Thursday that read, “God Protect Me From ANYTHING That Wasn’t Sent By You.”
Please pray for Diddy and Porter's children as they mourn this sudden loss.
