Police found Sean “Diddy” Combs’ ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter, dead in her home earlier this week, and an investigation into her death is currently underway. The sudden, tragic passing of Porter has left Combs devastated.
“Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” said a rep for Porter.
LAPD Officer Jeff Lee says that an emergency call came in at 11:38 a.m. on Thursday morning, and there was a deceased female at Porter’s home in Toluca Lake, California. The department sent homicide detectives to the scene to find out if foul play was involved.

According to the emergency dispatch call, Porter suffered from “cardiac arrest,” but the exact cause of her death is still unknown. Insiders say that Porter had been suffering from illness the last couple of weeks.
Combs and Porter dated for 13 years before splitting in 2007, but insiders say the two will “always be family.” Porter was the love of Combs’ life, his best friend, and the mother of his children. Even though they broke up over a decade ago, the two were still “very close.”
The former couple has one son, Christian Combs, 20, and twin daughters, Jessie James and D’Lila, 11. And, while the family is mourning Porter’s passing, they are also extremely focused on the kids.
The late model and actress also has a 27-year-old son named Quincy from her relationship with Al B. Sure!.
Porter and Combs broke up in 1999 and then later went to court over child support for Christian, who was less than a year old at the time. Combs then dated Jennifer Lopez for two years before he reconciled with Porter in 2003. They split for the final time in 2007 after the birth of their twin daughters.

The former couple maintained an amicable relationship and co-parented their children. And, in 2008 he told JET Magazine that they were “the best of friends.” He also said his kids were “kind, great people” who had a lot of love in their hearts, and he was the luckiest man in the world.
Insiders say that Combs “will never get over” Porter’s death. Radar Online reports that the music mogul rushed to the scene in Toluca Lake not long after police found Porter dead. His blue Mercedes Maybach was parked on the street near Porter’s home while detectives swarmed the scene.
Diddy was recently spotted with his ex Cassie, we can only assume they reunited for comfort after his tragic loss.
