Kim Porter, who dated Sean &ldquo
iddy” Combs for many years before their 2007 split and was also mother to three of his children, was found dead in her home on Thursday. She was 47.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE that officers responded to a death investigation at 11:38 a.m. in Toluca Lake, California, where they found a female unresponsive at the residence.
According to an emergency dispatch call posted by TMZ, the call came in as a cardiac arrest. While it’s not yet clear what caused Parker’s death, a source told the outlet she had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks.
The couple, who began dating in the ’90s, had three children together throughout their off-and-on-again relationship: son Christian, 20, and 11-year-old twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James Combs.
Porter and Combs broke up in 1999.
