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.

Celebs that Do Co-Parenting Well and Dig Each Other Too

There are new generation of celebrity broken up couples being excellent examples for co-parenting. Some are even still secretly into each other and dating.

Trending this weekend was Kourtney Kardsashian who was rumored to be back with her ex beau and dad to her three kids, Scott Disick. TMZ clarified today that the couple are on friendly terms and travel together for co-parenting reasons though Kourt is open to rekindling their relationship now that Disick has remained clean and sober consistently for a long period of time! The couple co-parent their children together, 6-year old Mason, 4-year old Penelope and 1-year old son, Reign.

Good for them!

Also, rumored to be back together are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck who parents to 11-year old Violet, 7-year old Seraphine and  4-year old Samuel. Some reports state that they are actually planning to add on to their brood and some say Jen is already expecting. Who knows? Time will tell, for sure!

This weekend, a long-since divorced couple showed some cordial friendly behavior: Madonna and Sean Penn co-presented at an annual charity and had playful antics on stage. Penn even joked about handcuffing Madonna on stage after he took up her challenge to bid $150,000 for a necklace in exchange for her agreeing to marry him again.

Also, during the Latin Grammy Awards in November, Marc Anthony and ex wife Jennifer Lopez  gave each other a kiss after he presented her the Person of the Year award. He has since said that he is still in love with his ex wife and mom to their twins Emme and Max, according to US Weekly.

Sean “Diddy” Comb‘s relationship with his ex Kim Porter‘s son Quincy with 80s R&B recording artist Al B. Sure is ideal because he calls Quincy his son even though he is no longer with Porter and Quincy’s dad is very much alive and around.

Another great co-parenting role model is Jada Pinkett-Smith, who has helped her husband Will Smith raise his son, Trey, with ex Sheree Fletcher. They are great examples of blended families that get along.

Ask Alicia Keys, whose latest hit song is dedicated to blended families!
