Diddy, Kim Porter: Never Married But His Love For Her Never Died


Kim Porter, one of P Diddy’s greatest loves and the mother of his three children, died at the age of 47. A family representative confirmed the shocking news. Right now, the cause remains undetermined. Those close to Porter say she was sick with pneumonia in the weeks leading up to her untimely death. In 2014, Kim Porter’s mother passed away.

Around noon on November 15, 2018, someone from Kim Porter’s Toluca Lake home placed a call to 911, stating Porter was suffering from cardiac arrest. Just one day earlier, during a follow-up call to her doctor, she indicated her health had not improved.

So far, no one has explained why the Los Angeles model was not under hospital care. Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, aka Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs, has not made a statement about her death. P Diddy and Kim Porter began seeing each other in 1994.

The relationship produced three children. A son, Christian, was born in 1998, and twins daughters, D’Lila and Jessie James were born in 2006. Quincy, Kim Porter’s oldest child, was fathered by singer Al B. Sure.

For years, they were madly in love. But the turbulent relationship was peppered with many passionate make-ups and bitter break-ups. The lovers called it quits in 2007.

Allegedly, Kim Porter never gave up hope of one day becoming P Diddy’s wife. One of the biggest heartbreaks for Porter was when Sean Combs began dating actress and singer Jennifer Lopez in the late 1990s.

Though Kim Porter and P Diddy never married, he always loved her and considered her family. Over the years, Kim Porter was included in many family trips. Bad Boy Entertainment reported that Diddy believed Kim Porter was his muse, and he often spoke of the love he had for her.

“The relationship that gave me the most inspiration was the relationship with Kim. It’s my most long-term relationship. It’s had a lot of ups and downs, and it made for a lot of great songs. When I was with Jennifer [Lopez] I got caught up. She was fine. The hype can pull you together, and it’s feeling good, and the relationship is genuine. There was love there, but it just wasn’t this type of love.”


In the popular television show, Empire, music mogul Lucious Lyon, tells the love of his life, Cookie Lyon, she is his muse. Many are convinced the show is loosely inspired by P Diddy’s true story.
