Sure!, born Albert Brown, was inspired by Porter to pen one of Jodeci's best-selling singles, "Forever My Lady".

Porter and Combs began dating in 1994, splitting and getting back together several times until breaking up for good in 2007. They welcomed son Christian in 1998 and twin daughters Jessie James and D'Lila in 2006.

Shortly after Porter's death was announced, a slew of celebrities went to social media to express their condolences.

Reportedly, Diddy was surprised to be contacted by her and was definitely touched that she still cared enough to ask how he was doing during this dark time. "She was loved and will be missed dearly", he wrote.
