The hip-hop world was shocked on November 15 when news broke that Diddy's ex Kim Porter died at 47. "I ask that you give the families privacy at this time", Diddy's rep tells the publication. They split in 2007 but reunited and the rapper and the model were even pictured on a Caribbean getaway in 2010, according to the Daily Mail, which ran the pics that December. Porter also had a son, Quincy, from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!, whom Combs has treated as his own. A source further told the site that Porter, 47, had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks, but that it was still unclear how she died.

In addition to her modeling and acting work, Porter also appeared on Diddy's popular VH1 reality show, I Want to Work for Diddy.
