TMZ is reporting that 47-year-old model and actress Kim Porter, the ex-girlfriend of Sean "Diddy" Combs and mother of three of his children, was found dead in her California home on Thursday. Around noon, the outlet says law enforcement received a call about a patient in cardiac arrest. Further details on her death are still developing. A source told TMZ Porter had been feeling sick for several weeks, but the exact cause of her death is unconfirmed.
Porter and Combs were first linked in 1994, and their relationship was on and off until their final split in 2007. They share twin daughters Jessie James and D'Lila, now 11, and Christian, now 20. Porter acted in the TV series Wicked Wicked Games in 2006, before appearing as herself in several reality TV projects alongside her then-boyfriend.
Reps for neither Combs nor his son Christian immediately returned Refinery29's request for comment.
