Sean 'P Diddy' Combs' former partner, Kim Porter, found dead


Kim's rep also talked to Page Six, confirming the passing: 'Sadly, I can confirm the death of Kim Porter.

Officials told TMZ that they received a call to Porter's Southern California home at around noon, and police are on the scene right now.

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.

Porter and Diddy, 49, met when he was an A&R executive at Uptown Records and began dating in 1994. They have three children - Jessie James and D'Lila, who were born in 2006, and their son Christian, who was born in 1998.

She also had a son, Quincy, with R&B singer Al B. Sure!, according to Yahoo News. We have three children together so that's just not an option.
