Inside, Diddy detailed to dream hampton the love story between him and Porter, and would also how he “jumped into mommy mode” to keep the family strong and together.
“She was unforgettable. That day turned my world upside down. Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well. She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick,” Diddy said to ESSENCE. “One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died.”
