Combs’ Reaction

“For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare,” Combs, who is also known as Puff Daddy or P. Diddy, wrote on Instagram.

He continued: “I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship.”

She was buried in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia, during a public funeral held by Combs. He arranged for her casket to be pulled by horses, and had famed pastor T.D. Jakes officiate the service.

“I just want to say to my kids, Justin, Christian, D’Lila, Jessie, Chance and the other man in the house, Quincy: Your mother instilled in me this, and I pledge in front of everybody right now that I will always be there for you,” Combs said, TMZ reported.

Combs added, “To the girls especially, we about to enter some different type of times. I want you to be able to talk to me about everything, and I mean everything, and I mean everything.”

Before the funeral, Combs honored his ex with an emotional tweet.

“Today we lay to rest our ANGEL,” he tweeted. “Her spirit lives on with us FOREVER!!! We thank you all for your prayers and support. You have no idea how much it means to us. We thank GOD for all of you.”

One day after Porter’s death, a source told People magazine: “Diddy is devastated and shocked. He and Kim were still very close friends and co-parents even though their romantic relationship didn’t work. They were still a family.”

Another person claimed, “This is the most awful, sad and unreal situation for him. It’s a nightmare … He isn’t sleeping. He always had a very special relationship with Kim. Despite not being together romantically, he loved Kim. It was really true love, and he is hurting badly right now.”

Porter worked as a model and appeared in several films and television shows over the years, including “Wicked Wicked Game” and “The Brothers.”
