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.More news: Things to know about Michelle Obama's book, arena tour

Porter had an on-again, off-again relationship with Diddy (born Sean Combs) that spanned a decade. She was loved and will be missed dearly.
Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to the friends and family of Kim Porter. "Chin up, Puff. Positive vibes only".
