At this time, however, we cannot say for certain what caused the passing of the 47-year old actress and model, who dated Diddy off and on for 13 years and who was the mother to three of his kids.

According to a 911 call, Porter was in "cardiac arrest" prior to paramedics arriving at her home.

She was pronounded dead at the scene.

We've heard from many sources in the time since, all explaining how close Diddy and Porter remained after their final break-up in 2007 and all describing Diddy as devastated and heartbroken.

But, as we said, this is the first time we've heard from Diddy on the subject.

“For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t,” the music mogul wrote on Saturday, alongside a throwback video of the pair posing together for a pregnancy photoshoot.

He continued:

"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.

"We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love."

Diddy and Porter were on such good terms after they split over a decade ago that they never formalized a custody arrangement.

They were able to work everything out on friendly and flexible terms.

“He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn’t work,” a People Magazine source says. “They were still a family.”

The pair were parents of twin girls born in 2006 and a son born in 1998.

Porter, meanwhile, was also the mother of another son from another relationship.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Porter’s death in a statement explaining that officers responded to a death investigation at 11:40 a.m. local time in Toluca Lake, California.

Once they arrived, they found a female unresponsive at the residence.

Her cause of death remains undetermined at this time.

Diddy and Porter started dating in the 1990s and ended for good in 2007.

Their kids include: Christian, 20, and 11-year-old twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James.

Additionally, Combs raised Porter’s eldest child, Quincy, 27.

The Bad Boy Records entrepreneur is also the father of two other kids - son Justin, 24, and daughter Chance, 12 -whom he shares with exes Misa Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman, respectively.

He's often spoke positively of their mothers, and of Porter.

“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,” Combs has told People of his exes, adding:

“The mothers of my children [are] my best friends. My hat goes off to them."

May Kim Porter rest in peace.
