The world was shocked to learn that model Kim Porter died last week while battling pneumonia. While the father of her three children, Diddy, as well as her adult children Quincy and Christian have remained silent as they grieve, the women that had a hand in raising her have broken their silence.
Porter’s grandmother, aunt-in-law and cousin described how heartbroken they were once they learned about her death via social media. Her grandmother, Lila Mae Star, said she was hopeful that Porter would get better soon after speaking to her the day before she died.
“She told me she felt better and that the doctor had been to her house and he gave her an antibiotic,” Star told WTVM-TV.
Star said when she spoke to Diddy, he was distraught.
“My baby is gone, my baby is gone,” he said while on the phone with her.
Porter was found dead in her Toluca Lake, CA home on Thursday (Nov. 15). The Los Angeles County medical examiner’s office has not released a statement regarding her official cause of death yet. Porter was 47, and passed away a month before her birthday.
