Kim Porter — who had an on-again, off-again relationship with Sean “Diddy” Combs for more than a decade, and three kids with the music mogul — died on Thursday.
A rep told Page Six, “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time.”
The rep had no further comment on the cause of death.
TMZ reported law enforcement sources as telling the site that authorities were called to Porter’s LA home on Thursday, and that a 911 call reported “a patient in cardiac arrest.” A source further told the site that Porter, 47, had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks, but that it was still unclear how she died.
Another source told Page Six that there will be an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Porter and Diddy began dating in the mid-1990s and their relationship ended for good in 2007. They had three children — Jessie James, D’Lila, and Christian — together. Porter also had a son, Quincy, from her relationship with R&B crooner Al B. Sure.
