Apparently, Diddy would love to speak, but he’s still so distraught and reeling from the shock of her sudden death that he’s not sure he’d make it through.
For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. 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. pic.twitter.com/QtVnUrv0ep— Diddy (@Diddy) November 18, 2018
HE'S BEEN "DEVASTATED"
This doesn’t come as a surprise, as the “Bad Boy Entertainment” boss was said to be “devastated and shocked” not long after Porter’s death. A source further disclosed:
“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.”
She loved to dance. Thank you to everybody for your prayers and support. God is the greatest. He woke you up to see another day. Please don’t take it for granted. Let’s go people!!! pic.twitter.com/Ux7GqP4VjA— Diddy (@Diddy) November 19, 2018
MORE THAN SOULMATES
On November 18, Diddy finally broke his silence over the passing of a phenomenal woman he dated on and off for 13 years.
“For the last three days, I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t,” he confessed on Instagram, before adding:
“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. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER [expletive]!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.”
The next day, he shared another clip of their family and vowed to raise them as she taught him to.

Per Diddy’s request, Porter’s body will arrive at the funeral in a horse-drawn carriage because she loved horses while she was alive.
Porter is survived by her four children- 20-year-old son, Christian, twin daughters, Jessie and D’Lila, 11, and Quincy Brown, her son from a previous relationship whom Diddy raised as his own.
Porter was aged 47.
