D’Lila Combs

Tributes Pour In for Actress and Model Kim Porter

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Kim Porter, a model, actress and personality who I’ve frequently blogged about on this site, who died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday at the very young age of 47.

Apparently Porter, who is mother to music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs‘ twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie James and son Christian; and a son Quincy with ex 90s R&B singer and actor Al B. Sure. 

According to TMZ, Porter had be suffering from flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for the past several weeks. Her cause is death has yet to be determined.

Although the Georgia-born model is known for her onscreen, runway and ad campaign career, she is more known for being a mom to some pretty amazing kids.

Porter and Diddy gave birth to their twin daughters in 2006. The girls began modeling at a very young age, as Bossip reports they landed their first print ad campaign in 2014 as spokesmodels for Ruum American Kids’ Wear.

Porter and Diddy gave birth to their son Christian ‘King’ Combs in 1998. Combs has gone on to become a model for Dolce & Gabbana and recently inked a deal to take part in Tommy Jeans’ Spring 2018 campaign. Combs also models for his father’s fashion line Sean John.

Quincy Taylor Brown was born on June 4, 1991  but  Diddy adopted him as his son later. Brown’s godfather is legendary musician and producer Quincy Jones, whom he is named after.

From a summary in Heavy:

In an interview with Essence Magazine, Porter details learning that Diddy had fathered a child with another woman named Sarah Chapman. The child, Chance Combs, was born five months after Jessie James and D’Lila. “It’s not an original script. He’s not the first man who’s cheated,” Porter explained. “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.”

Porter also expressed regret over the fact that she didn’t learn about the other child directly from Diddy. “I would have preferred to find out from him because that’s a man,” she revealed. “I know it’s hard for anyone to say to their significant other, ‘I’ve gotten into some sh*t and I got a baby on the way.’ But men do get caught up in things; I’m not naive to that. Still, there’s a right and a wrong way to handle it. Because, most of all, we were friends. Even if I couldn’t have understood it as a woman, I would have understood it as a friend.”

Porter continued: “He told me that he may have gotten himself into a situation and he may have fathered another child outside the relationship and I said, ‘Really? Well, I already knew. I’m glad you decided to be a man,’ ” recalls Porter. “I was like, ‘Dude, this is so wack I can’t even respect you right now.’ And for me, once the respect is gone, I’m not even listening to you.”

You can tell from her social media posts that Porter was all about being a supportive mother to her children and from the tributes that have poured in on her behalf over night that she was also a sweet and caring person, in general.

Rest in peace, Ms. Porter.

What’s Up with Mags Making Celeb Kids Models Look This Adult?

halycon kids

Halycon Kids, a quarterly magazine for preteen and teen readers which focuses on  fashion, art and DIY, has several celebrity kids models on the cover of its Fall 2016 issue. We love the pop of red featured boldly in the spread and the gold, silver and black Michael Kors kicks they are all wearing.

D’Lila, Jessie, and Chance Combs, whose parents are Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Kim Porter, are wearing a dress by Tago Look and shoes by Michael Kors.

Sean “P.Diddy” Combs‘ and his ex Kim Porter‘s children, twin 9-year old daughters Jessie and D’Lila Combs are featured in Newspaper print dresses , as is his daughter with ex Sarah Chapman, 10-year old Chance Combs in a cute crimson bubble dress with royal sleeves.

Chance Combs, daughter of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Sarah Chapman, is wearing a dress by Junona and shoes by Michael Kors.

Cali Dream, the daughter of rapper The Game is also featured in a cute dress with a tu-tu skirt and is the only one who looks her age, albeit she too is toting a pound of excess weave on her head.  Don’t get me wrong. I think they all look very cute, albeit very serious and very adult. Maybe a little too adult.

 

Harper Tillman, daughter of Kiki and Travares Tillman, a retired NFL player is also on the cover and is used to being made up because she is a professional child model who walks in many fashion shows. Tilman is often dressed up and made up like a little adult in many mag spreads. Maybe I’m an old folgie and I am paranoid over the existence of pedophiles who search the internet for kids images but something about how grown these children look in these photos make me uncomfortable.  I mean, Harper looks twice her age in most of her pics like these:

Disney channel actress Skai Jackson  is also featured in the magazine and by the looks of her Instagram page, it appears that she has become the latest fave for magazine editors and is getting lots of coverage, which is really cool. She started to get wide spread popularity beyond the kids’ TV scene when she took on rapper Iggy Azalea in a famous Twitter beef this past May.  Before that, she was featured often in a meme.

Since shutting Iggy down on Twitter, she’s the new teen “it” girl and has been featured on Paper magazine, Teen Vogue, SeventeenYSB Now and of course, Halycon Kids and many others. She’s riding high and that’s a wonderful thing! But still…..
