Kim Porter, the mother of three of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ children, has died. She was 47. Porter was found dead at her home in Toluca Lake, a suburb of Los Angeles on Nov. 15, which was initially reported by TMZ.

Police received a call around noon after Porter reportedly experienced cardiac arrest. For several weeks, sources revealed that Porter battled flu-like symptoms and pneumonia. However, a cause of death has not been established.

Porter, a model and actress, dated Combs for 13 years beginning in the early 1990s. The two have three children together.

In 1998, Porter gave birth to their son, Christian Combs and twin girls, Jessie James and D’Lila, in 2006. Porter was also the mother of Quincy Brown whose birth father is singer Al B. Sure.

A publicist for Combs, Cindi Berger, requested privacy for the family at this time.
