Singer Diddy’s baby mama, Kim Porter, dies at 47

Cam Cooper

Many in Hollywood were stunned to learn of model-actress Kim Porter's sudden death on Thursday. While the rapper turned businessman hasn't spoken out yet, a source told People magazine, "Diddy is devastated and shocked".

A source told TMZ that the model had been suffering flu like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks. "He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn't work ... they were still a family". Although the two ended their relationship in 2007, they still celebrated holidays together and considered themselves a "tight family", according to TMZ.

Diddy (real name Sean Combs) and Porter had three children together- a son Christian, 20, and 12-year-old twin girls, Jessica and D'Lila. Kim also left behind her son, Quincy, who Diddy helped raise, from her previous relationship. Her exact cause of death has not been confirmed, but it was revealed by emergency dispatch that the 911 call came in for a cardiac arrest.

Bangladesh Halts Plan to Return Refugees to Myanmar
That sentiment appears widespread among the refugees - apparently, nobody was willing to board the buses to return on Thursday. The Rohingya, who are Muslim, have not been given citizenship in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, so they are effectively stateless.

"I ask that you give the families privacy at this time". The cause of death is now undetermined, however, in TMZ's initial report about the 47-year-old's death, she had recently been suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Most celebrities like Diddy and Kimora Lee Simmons immediately made their way to Porter's house after finding out while the rest, like Rihanna, Drake, Teyana Taylor, and Jada Pinkett Smith took to Instagram to share their condolences.
