Kim Porter, an actor who shares three children with Diddy, died Thursday.
"Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” a representative for Diddy confirmed to BuzzFeed News.
Porter, 47, was found dead at her Los Angeles home after recently experiencing flulike symptoms, reports said. The Los Angeles County medical examiner's office said authorities were called Thursday morning and Porter was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:40 am.
A cause of death was not immediately known and an autopsy is pending, officials said.
Porter was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Diddy from 1994 until 2007. They have a son, Christian, who was born in 1998, and twin daughters, Jessie James and D'Lila, who were born in 2006.
Porter also has a son named Quincy Brown from her previous relationship with record producer Al B. Sure.
