Los Angeles - Diddy's ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter, has been found dead at her Los Angeles home.
The model-and-actress - who had sons Christian, 20, and twins Jessie James and D'Lila, 12, with the 'I'll Be Missing You' hitmaker, and 26-year-old Quincy from a previous relationship - had been suffering from "flu-like" symptoms, possibly pneumonia, for weeks when emergency services were called to her house on Thursday.
According to emergency dispatch audio obtained by TMZ, the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest, while a source told the website Kim had contacted her doctor on Wednesday to complain she wasn't feeling any better.
A spokesperson for Diddy - who dated Kim on and off from 1994 until 2007 - has appealed for privacy following the 47-year-old beauty's passing.
His representative, Cindi Berger, said: "Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time."
