Cindi Berger, the longtime rep for Diddy, also confirmed the passing of Porter to the outlet.

"Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter," she said. "I ask that you give the families privacy at this time." 

Porter met Diddy at the beginning of his career when he started as a talent director at Uptown Records. The two were on-and-off starting in 1994 and took a long break in 1999, which led to a custody battle over their son, Christian. They eventually broke up for good in July of 2007. While the couple never officially got married, they were known to have a profound love for each other despite rocky times.

At your homegoing celebration today it became all too real that you are not coming back. I cannot stop crying but I will be strong for you. Gone WAY too soon. Wtf. I am in shock. To my beautiful friend and sister, I love you.❀️ This is unbelievable. When I first heard the news, I was angry that someone would play such a stupid ass joke. They said you were in your room sleeping. Aoki and I rushed to your house to tell you to β€˜get up and come your ass outside!’ But soon as i arrived I realized you would not come. Every room I walk into now I think, β€œok, I will just go and get Kim.” But I see that I cannot. This is all too close and too sad. Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD! You are a girls girl which is why we’ve stayed close always. We are so alike in so many ways, we shared clothes, food, attitudes, friends, enemies, the greatest happinesses and the worst sadnesses. We’ve been married, given birth, raised families, gotten divorced, experienced death and everything in between-together. You are a great mama. Between us we have 8 kids who are all cousins. We are, and will always be-a family. I will look after yours and you will look after and guide us all. What a beautiful, loving, sassy soul to have lost. We love you forever. May God bless your journey. We will never stop crying for youβ€οΈπŸ•Š #kimporter #forevermylady #rip 😒 #blackexcellence πŸ‘‘βœ¨
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 . I am praying so hard for you @diddy , all of the kids , @ebonielektra , @coreygamble , @officialalbsure , and the entire family . I love y’all so much . Your spirit lives forever @ladykp .

I am in complete shock, I literally have no words. I am so disheartened by this news today and even more so because I have not seen you in awhile. We lived so close at one time that I would walk to your house in the afternoons and spend all day with you. Always leaving with a gift or something that you’d given me. We would laugh and talk and you would tell me everything I needed to learn, never holding back and always keeping it fun! I enjoyed our talks and you opening your home to me, your cooking that you promised to teach me and I mourn at the reality that now you never will. You really meant a lot to me, you maybe didn’t know all I was going through but your companionship was very important in my life. I will always cherish those memories ... 😒 Rest In Peace ❀️

Porter also had a son, Quincy, (named after Quincy Jones) from her relationship with R&B crooner Al B. Sure. Diddy also considers him a son. Diddy and his ex, along with their children, were photographed just weeks ago on October 30 at the premiere of Quincy's film, "The Holiday Calendar."

Combs is also the father of two other children, son Justin, 24, and daughter Chance, 12, whom he shares with his exes Misa Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman.

Earlier on Thursday, Diddy shared a cryptic message on social media, writing, "God protect me from ANYTHING that wasn't sent by you." It's unclear if he was referring to Porter's death.
