Diddy's Longtime Girlfriend Kim Porter Dead At 47

Both T.I. and his wife have penned emotional tributes to late model and actress Kim Porter who died on Thursday at the age of 47.

According to multiple USA reports, police were called to Kim's house at around 11.30am, where officers found her unresponsive.

The model-and-actress was found dead at her Los Angeles home on Thursday, November 15, after suffering from "flu-like" symptoms, possibly pneumonia, for weeks, and police have now confirmed there was "no foul playing" surrounding her passing.

A spokeswoman for Diddy, Cindi Berger, told Variety: "Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter".

T.I.P. penned this message to the hip-hop businessman and his family: "We'll always love you and cherish your lovely spirit". The cause was not immediately clear, and an autopsy will be performed, the LA County coroner's office said.

Diddy, 49, was with Porter on-and-off from 1994 until they split for good in 2007.

Another insider claimed that Porter had called her doctor just one day before she passed, as she allegedly hadn't been feeling better. They have three children together.

The couple have three children together - Christian, D'Lila Star and Jesse James Combs. Rapper Mase, 41, who was a star of Diddy's Bad Boy Records at the time Kim started dating the music mogul, wrote on Instagram, "Can't Believe Someone So Special and Contributed So Much..." She captioned the image, "Love".

Tiny Harris called Sean "Diddy" Combs's former girlfriend a great mom while T.I.P. said she was a real angel. "Chin up puff, Positive vibes only", wrote rapper 50 Cent on Twitter.
