The Porter, Goodwin, and Combs families also sent a public statement to The Associated Press on Friday. They said:

“God broke the mold when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her. Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace. There wasn’t a person she met who’s (whose) soul she did not touch. Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better,” they said. “She will be forever remembered and missed by so many. As her family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives. We love you always.”

Sean Combs and Porter began dating in the ’90s. They had their children throughout their on-and-off-again relationship.

Combs and Porter broke up in 1999 and battled in court over child support for Christian; Combs also dated Jennifer Lopez for two years before he and Porter reconciled in 2003. They split for the final time in 2007.

Though they never-married Combs gave his children’s mothers most of the credit, though. “I’ve been truly blessed to have some great, incredible relationships that have afforded me these children by these very strong, intelligent, beautiful black women,” he said of his exes. “The mothers of my children [are] my best friends. My hat goes off to them.”

Porter will be remembered by her four children, Quincy Brown, Christian, 20, and 11-year-old twin girls D'Lila Star and Jessie James.
