CELEBRITY Kim Porter

Sean "Diddy" Combs and Kim Porter were a popular on-and-off-again couple from 1994 to 2007, well-known and loved in the most famed circles of actors and musicians. The former model, singer and actress from Georgia was found dead November 15 in her LA home, victim to cardiac arrest, at the age of 47.

According to TMZ, Diddy is destroyed over the news. His connection with the mother of three of his children remained strong after they split, still celebrating holidays, vacationing, and regularly hanging out with each other. They cared for and respected each other so much that they never had a formal custody agreement, choosing to instead accommodate one another's schedules. 

Now, celebrities are making their deepest condolences known to support their friend in this heartbreaking time. Diddy's longtime friend, 50 Cent, tweeted, "R.I.P to Kim Porter, I send my condolences to her friends and family. She was loved and will be missed dearly. I know Puff is hit right now, he loved her for real, soul mate type shit. Chin up puff, Positive vibes only."

Janelle Monae wrote a post on Instagram revealing that Porter was actually the reason her career is what it is, calling her a "connecter," a "boss," and a "champion of women in the industry." She also added, "I am happy we got to hug and talk at Puff’s party but man do I wish I could have told you one more time how much I love you."

Kim meant so much to so many , but to me and @Wondaland she was the woman who single handedly changed our lives . When I moved to ATL , I was passionate about being an artist but had not gained much exposure . If it had not been for you and the Three Brown Girls (Your company w/ Nicole Johnson & Eboni Elektra) belief in me & inviting me out to do your open mic night “Lip Service” at Justin’s restaurant, my career would have been on another path . You lovingly connected me with two key players that helped move my career forward , @bigboi & @diddy . I am forever indebted to you . When the headlines talk about you I pray they talk about the platform your company gave new and up and coming artists in Atlanta . YOU WERE A CONNECTOR . You were a champion of women in the industry . YOU WERE A BOSS moving through this life with so much style and grace . I am happy we got to hug and talk at Puff’s party but man do I wish I could have told you one more time how much I love you . I am heartbroken . You were light . You were supportive . You were stunning . You were kind ALWAYS . You were creative . You were as real as they came . You were an incredible mother . You were rare . I’ll forever miss you my Sagittarius sister .
