Kim Porter passed away at age 47 on November 15; she was the ex-girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Combs, mother of their three children, and mother to actor Quincy Brown. TMZ reported that the premiere of Browns’ Netflix original holiday movie, The Holiday Calendar, was the last public outing Porter had with her whole family. The movie premiered as a special screening at Netflix’s Icon Building in Los Angeles, on October 30.
Though TMZ reported that Porter and Diddy broke up for good in 2007 (after dating since 1994), both remain friends and were there to support Quincy’s big night. The ex-couple’s children, twin daughters Jessie James and D’Lila and son Christian, were in attendance; Diddy’s son Justin Dior and Quincy’s father Al B. Sure! were also there. The whole family posed happily alongside Quincy in front of the poster for his new movie, which features Quincy and his co-star, Kat Graham.
Though Porter’s cause of death has not yet been released, a source told TMZ that she had been sick with flu and pneumonia-like symptoms for several weeks, which would mean she was sick at the time of this event. It doesn’t show in the photos, though. She looks so happy and proud to have her whole family together, supporting her oldest child’s latest success.
On the night of the premiere, Quincy posted a video from Netflix headquarters on his Instagram. In the caption, he wrote “Simply Happy!” During the video, he calls over his sisters and mom, saying “I’ve got my fam here.” Porter smiles and gives the peace sign, before saying “Yes! So proud of Quincy.” You can hear her laugh at the end of the video, as her son says “I’m happy!”
In one photo, she stands between her two daughters, holding their hands and smiling. The twins are wearing matching outfits, including cat ear headbands and T-shirts that say “The Future Is Mine.” In another photo, she leans over to plant a kiss on Quincy’s cheek. Quincy shared that photo on his Instagram, with the caption “The LOVE is right here.” She also posed for a photo with her arm around her son’s co-star’s mother, Natasha Graham.
Porter posted the photos of her and her family to her Instagram page, adding photos of Quincy with his father, step father, and co-stars. In her caption, she shows her pride for her son: “I laughed I cried I got in the holiday spirit but most of all I got to see @quincy live out his Dream.” She also included the hashtag “#blendedfamily”
