Kim Porter, the actress, model and ex-girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Combs, died of lobar pneumonia, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said Friday.

The manner of death for Porter, who was the mother of three of Combs’ children, was deemed natural.

According to the coroner’s office, Porter was found unresponsive in her Toluca Lake, California, home on the morning of November 15, 2018. She was pronounced dead on the scene at 11:40 a.m., after authorities were called.

Porter was 47.

Days after Porter’s death, Combs offered an emotional tribute to his ex, writing on Twitter, “I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much.”

“For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t,” Diddy tweeted, along with a loving video montage set to music of them snuggling and dancing. “I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship.”
