Model and actress Kim Porter, who well known as the ex-girlfriend of rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs, has died at the age of 47. Porter and Combs dated on and off for 13 years and had three children together. They ended their relationship in 2007, but remained close.

Porter's credits include roles on the TV series "Wicked Wicked Games" and "Single Ladies," and in the films "Mama, I Want to Sing" and "Brothers." She appeared as a model on the cover of Essence magazine, and as herself in episodes of "I Want to Work for Diddy."

While no cause of death has been reported, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman confirmed that police had responded to a 911 call in Toluca Lake about a "patient in cardiac arrest" this morning. According to TMZ, which broke the news, Porter had been suffering from pneumonia for weeks.

In a statement to Variety, Diddy's rep Cindi Berger said, "Sadly, I can confirm the passing of Kim Porter. I ask that you give the families privacy at this time."

P Diddy has been arrested after allegedly getting into a fight with his son's football coach at UCLA.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs is not an uncommon figure at the sidelines, and was was watching his son, Justin, who is a defensive back, practicing.  Apparently the strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi was riding his son hard, screaming intensely at him and telling him not to come back until the end of the summer.

At some point later on, Diddy went to speak to the coach in his office as he believed he has an issue with Justin.  Things got out of hand however and an altercation ensued resulting in Diddy's arrest.

Sources told TMZ that, initially Alosi wouldn't see Diddy and staff told him to leave.  Diddy found his way to Alosi's office instead, where Alosi told him to get out and threatened to call security.

TMZ are told that Diddy said "Fine, I'll call the police" and Alosi snapped�—going after Diddy with his hands.  Diddy insists that he grabbed a kettlebell and held it up in a defensive position—but did not attack the coach with any intent to injure.  However UCLA sources allege that Alosi was on the phone and told Diddy to 'hang on', whereby Diddy picked up a kettlebell and swung it, narrowly missing Alosi.

Now whilst Diddy has been referred to as a "helicopter Dad" by UCLA staff such is his tendency to hover over his son, Alosi also has a reputation.  He was an NY Jets coach who was suspended in 2010 after tripping a Miami Dolphins player who was covering a punt.

After the altercation on Monday afternoon, Diddy was arrested  for assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, and left the campus cuffed and in a patrol car and was transferred to LA County jail.

Well we will definitely get to the bottom off this though—apparently the whole incident is on video!

 

 

Jennifer Lopez is responding to comments Sean "Diddy" Combs made about her famous ass, saying she is proud to get his seal of approval.

As Popdust previously reported, Diddy said JLo's booty was "a work of art", and no other derriere - including Kim Kardashian's - could compare.

According to Jen, she and the rapper will always be friends - and those curves are going NOWHERE.

"It's awesome! Here's the thing about me and Puff, and I'm sorry I'll always call him Puff, we always root for each other, we always support each other. It's great after all these years to know and watch him do all that he's done," she told Shaun Robinson during an interview with  Access Hollywood. "To see him do all that he's done makes me proud and to know that he's still in the game so strong and to know that he supports me and is proud of me is a beautiful thing."

Jennifer went on to explain how although her figure was considered "heavy" when she first started out as a dancer, it now seems to be extremely popular and celebrated.

"When I came out to L.A. from the Bronx and started pursuing my career as a dancer, as an actress, as a performer and singer, I realized that I was different. I was Latina first of all…and then my body wasn't traditional. I was bottom-heavy, small on the top, you know I had thick thighs and people criticized me…Now booty is in fashion, finally, but before it was just, 'You're heavy!'" she recalled. "And I was like wait a minute, there's nothing wrong with me. I'm a size six…eight…eight on a heavy day and that's OK, that's healthy."

There are MANY women who would be happy to be size eight on a heavy day, right? Watch the video below!

Sean "Diddy" Combs says no butt can ever compare to Jennifer Lopez's beautiful behind.

The rapper and JLo dated from 1991-2001, and remained good friends even after they broke up. According to Diddy, his ex-girlfriend's ass is untouchable.

"Oh my God. I'm so lucky to have that great woman in my history, she is one of the greatest I've ever seen," he told Access Hollywood Live. "Show them J, go girl! Go girl! I mean, it's great. It's a work of art. It's something that will go down in history, for real it will. But also her talent, her drive, her determination, she will never give up. She's a great friend of mine, always will be my friend, and I mean that thing is just incredible, man."

When Billy Bush asked if Kim Kardashian's derriere could compare, Diddy's answer was unequivocal.

"No way!" he said. "No way. No disrespect to Kanye [West] and Kim but that thing right there, that thing right there is something special."

Kanye-Diddy beatdown in 3..2..1..

 

Rapper/actor/entrepreneur/J-Lo ex Sean Combs has toyed around with various nom de plumes over the years. He's gone from Puff Daddy (1997) to P. Diddy (2001) to Diddy (2005) and after nearly ten years, he's decided it's time for another name change.

And that name is...

Drumroll please...

PUFF DADDY!

That's right—the name that made him famous is back. Combs made the announcement via the short trailer for an upcoming track called "Big Homie" with French Montana and Rick Ross (see below). He followed up with a tweet:

 

That #MMM is a tease for Puff Daddy's fifth album, which comes out later this year.

What do YOU think of the name change?
