The cause of death is unknown at this time. Deferred calls made by TMZ sent a call as a cardiac arrest. While it is still unclear what caused Parker's death, the source said he suffered from pneumonia for several weeks.
The rapper's representative confirmed Porter's death to the people and said, "Unfortunately, I can confirm that Kim Porter died, and I ask you to give privacy to our families at this time."
The couple, who started dating in the 1990s, had three children together during their off-and-on relationship: Christian son, 20 and 11-year-old twins Lila Star and Jessie James Combs.

Combs is also the father of three other children – sons of Quincy Brown, 27, Justin, 24 and daughter Chance, 12, shared with ex-Miss Mylon Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman.

"I was really blessed that I had such wonderful, incredible relationships that these children gave me these very strong, intelligent, beautiful black women," she says of her exes. "The mothers of my children [are] my best friends. My hat goes. "
