LOS ANGELES — Former model and actress Kim Porter has died. She was 47-years-old.

Porter, mostly known for her relationship with hip-hop mogul Diddy, was found unresponsive by officials Thursday at her home in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.

TMZ broke the news: […] the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest. A source connected to Kim tells us she’d been suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks, but it’s still unclear what exactly caused her death. Another source says Kim had contacted her doctor just yesterday complaining she wasn’t feeling any better.

A spokesperson for Diddy confirmed the news to VIBE: “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”

Porter and Diddy have three children together.
