Kim Porter: December 16, 1971 – November 15, 2018

On Thursday, November 15, the world received tragic news that model and actress Kim Porter passed away in her Los Angeles area home.

Law enforcement sources confirmed that they received a call to Porter’s Toluca Lake home around noon and according to emergency dispatch audio, the call came in as a patient in cardiac arrest.

Kim was only 47 years old.

A source connected to Kim shared that the stunning model and mother had been suffering from flu-like symptoms and possibly pneumonia for several weeks, but as of Friday, November 16, it is unclear what exactly caused her untimely death. Authorities are looking at a recent trip that Kim took to Africa, to determine if she contracted a disease.

Kim’s sudden passing was a devastating blow to the world and all those who loved her; especially her family. Porter leaves behind her children whom she shares with music mogul Diddy; twin girls Jessie James and ‘Lila, who were born in 2006 and their son, Christian, who was born in 1998. She also leaves behind her 27-year-old son, artist and actor, Quincy Brown, whom she shares with Al B. Sure!

Forward Times would like to extend its deepest condolences to Porter’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.
