Kim Porter, Diddy's former long girlfriend and mother of three of his children, have died at the age of 47.
A representative of Sean "Diddy" Combs confirmed Porter's death on Thursday, but no further details were immediately available.
Diddy and Porter, a former model and temporary actress from Georgia, were a couple on and off from 1994 until they split well for 2007.
Their children are a 20-year-old son, Christian, and 11-year-old twin daughters, D & # 39; Lila Star and Jessie James. Combs also has three other children from other relationships.
Porter also has a 27-year-old son who was largely raised with Diddy, Quincy Brown, from a previous relationship with the singer Al B. Sure. Brown, an actor, is featured on the Fox series "Star" and has had a handful of other TV and film roles.
As an actor, Porter appeared on the TV series "Wicked Wicked Games" 2006 and 2007 and in the movie "Mama I Want to Sing" 2011.
Many in the hip-hop society called her and offered compassion.
Missy Elliott called her death "so heartbreaking" tweeting, "Lord, give her children and her entire family's strength."
50 Cent Tweeted The Porter "was loved and will be missing expensive." & # 39; & # 39; I know that Puff is up right now, "he said," # 39; he really loved her. & # 39;
During one of their breakups, Porter Combs took court in 2002 to force him to pay more child support in what arose could be an acrimatic team fight, but the two reunited and had the twins in 2006.
They broke up permanently about six months after the girls were born. Porter said in a statement at the time the decision was her.
"At the end of this relationship, I took a decision that was in my own interest, Sean and our family," said Porter. " I look forward to continuing my life and my career and wishing him prosperity, happiness and happiness in life and love. We will remain friends and committed parents to our children. "
