No cause of death was revealed for Porter, but it was suspected that she was suffering from pneumonia for several weeks and had even seen a doctor about it.

Porter dated Diddy for nearly 13 years and the couple separated in 2007. They shared three kids: Christian, 20 and twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James, 11. Porter was also the mother to 27 year old Quincy.

After their split, Porter told Essence that “there was no other way” to manage it. She added, “You think he would have let me walk out the door? He wouldn’t have wanted me to go.”

She said, “I wanted to be dramatic. I wanted him to know I wasn’t breaking up with him for two weeks-or maybe leaving for two days. If I pack up everything—twins and all—it means I’m out! Puffy’s an action person, not a talk person. So I had to have an action. Telling him, ‘Babe, I’m leaving’ was not gonna do it.”

Porter also talked about why she broke up with Diddy, saying that his having a kid outside the relationship “was definitely part of it.”

She added, “It’s not an original script. He’s not the first man who’s cheated. He’s not the first man who’s had a baby outside of his relationship. He’s not the originator of this. But at this point in my life—I have girls now—it’s a different program.”

She established nonetheless, “There’s no ill feeling or ‘I can’t stand you, I hate you, don’t call.’ There’s none of that. We have three children together so that’s just not an option. We’re committed to our children even if we couldn’t commit to each other.”
