Kim Porter is dead.
According to US Today, this was confirmed by her representative, Cindi Berger, who has requested that the family be given the time to mourn. “Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time,” she said.
And TMZ adds that the model and actress was found dead in her Los Angeles area home Thursday after authorities responded to a 911 call of a “patient in cardiac arrest.”
Speaking with the press, the Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Jeff Lee said that “homicide detectives are at the scene of 10300 of Woodridge, conducting a death investigation of a female to determine if there is any foul play involved.”
Lee adds that the call came at 11:38 this morning.
Porter had an on-again, off-again relationship with Diddy for over a decade before they separated in 2007, after welcoming three children–son Christian and twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James.
She was 47.
