Diddy pays tribute to Kim Porter on second anniversary of her death
'Whenever I was around her, I felt as though God had his hand in it,' said Diddy.
Sean “Diddy” Combs and his children are still grieving the untimely loss of the late model Kim Porter and the hip-hop mogul paid tribute to her memory on social media over the weekend.
Diddy, 51, had three of his five children with Porter, twins D’Lila and Jessie James, 13, and son Christian, 22. Kim’s son Quincy Brown, 29, from her relationship with Al B. Sure was also raised by Diddy.
The news of Porter’s death from lobar pneumonia in 2018 shocked fans. She was 47.
“The Ebony Goddess!!! I miss her so much!!! And always will!!!! 💔. @ladykp,” he captioned next to a black and white photo of Porter in a white dress. He posted another pic of Porter and Christian writing, “QUEEN KIM PORTER!! @ladykp … IRREPLACEABLE … LOVE YOU FOREVER ❤”
Porter was born in Columbus, Georgia on Dec. 15, 1970, eventually becoming an actress and model. After a brief relationship with Sure, which resulted in their son, Quincy, she then had a long and publicized relationship with Diddy.
Quincy also posted a photo of himself and his mother dressed in formal attire and simply captioned the post with hearts and a dove.
On Nov. 15, 2018, Porter was found unresponsive at her residence in Toluca Lake, California, and pronounced dead at the scene. The manner of death was certified as natural, according to People. Porter had reportedly been struggling with flu symptoms.
In April of 2019, Diddy told Essence magazine he believed God had a hand in his being with Porter.
“There was total trust,” said Diddy. “Whenever I was around her, I felt as though God had his hand in it. I always felt like God had sent her. Nobody could love me the way she loved me, especially as, you know, as crazy as I acted. I mean, she loved me through some real s–t.”
