Diddy (49), who has three children with Kim, was seen at the house as her body was removed. A source close to him told People magazine he was still good friends with Kim.

“Diddy is devastated and shocked. He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn’t work,” the source said.

“They were still a family.”

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office confirmed Kim’s death in a statement, saying officers responded to a call at about 11:40 in Toluca Lake, California.

The call to emergency services was to report a cardiac arrest.

Police confirmed they found a female unresponsive at the residence and Kim was pronounced dead at the scene.

While it’s not yet clear what caused her death a source told People magazine she’d been suffering from pneumonia for weeks.

Diddy and Kim started dating in 1994 but broke up in 2007.

The Father-of-five has 24-year-old son Justin with ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim. Kim welcomed Diddy’s second son in 1998 and their twin girls were born in December 2006. Diddy also has 12-year-old daughter, Chance, with Sarah Chapman.
