Kim Porter passed away in her Toluca Lake, California, home on Thursday. She was only 47 years old. The cause of death has not been confirmed, but she was reportedly receiving medical treatment for pneumonia and went into cardiac arrest. One of her children, Quincy Brown, wrote a post for his late mother.
Brown wrote, “I am broken…& the only thing that makes sense right now is that you were way too good for this silly world we live in,” Quincy captioned under a pic of himself and his mother. “I love you so much MOMMY. Please give Mee-Maw the biggest hug and kiss for me.”
Quincy, who is 27, is her son from her her relationship with singer Al B. Sure! Porter and Sean “Diddy” Combs dated from 1994 to 2007. Their son, Christian Combs, was born in 1998. They also have twin girls Jessie James and D’Lila, 12.
Diddy also spoke out on Instagram, writing, “For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates.”
The New York Daily News reports funeral arrangements are being made, “Among those on hand is Porter’s father, who according to a Daily News source has suggested flying his daughter’s body to Columbus, GA. where her mother Sarah is buried. It’s unclear whether that will be part of the plan. A coffin was selected Saturday.” Naomi Campbell and Kimora Lee Simmons are reportedly helping with the arrangements.
Rest in peace, Kim Porter.
