Keke Palmer also offered a heartfelt post to Porter on Instagram.
“We would laugh and talk and you would tell me everything I needed to learn, never holding back and always keeping it fun,” Palmer wrote. “I enjoyed our talks and you opening your home to me, your cooking that you promised to teach me and I mourn at the reality that now you never will. You really meant a lot to me, you maybe didn’t know all I was going through but your companionship was very important in my life.”

I am in complete shock, I literally have no words. I am so disheartened by this news today and even more so because I have not seen you in awhile. We lived so close at one time that I would walk to your house in the afternoons and spend all day with you. Always leaving with a gift or something that you’d given me. We would laugh and talk and you would tell me everything I needed to learn, never holding back and always keeping it fun! I enjoyed our talks and you opening your home to me, your cooking that you promised to teach me and I mourn at the reality that now you never will. You really meant a lot to me, you maybe didn’t know all I was going through but your companionship was very important in my life. I will always cherish those memories … 😢 Rest In Peace ❤️
Porter gave birth to her oldest son Quincy with Al B. Sure in 1991. She’d later have Christian Casey Combs and twins Jessie James Combs and D’Lila Star Combs with Diddy.
