They watched a fireworks show which was set up to commemorate Porter's life. A tribute organized by her ex-boyfriend Diddy.

Porter’s funeral was held on Saturday, November 24, in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia. About 1,000 to 1,500 people attended the service.


Before the fireworks display, Diddy gave a touching eulogy. He touched on the first time and how she helped him deal with his brush with depression earlier this year.

The funeral was a star-studded affair. The attendees included attendance were Lil Kim, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans, Stevie J, Kandi Burruss, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Tichina Arnold.

Other celebrities also shared tear-jerking tributes to Porter. Mary J. Blige and Dallas Austin also offered words of condolence.


Yolanda Adams and Faith Evans paid musical tribute to the 47-year-old model and actress. The procession left the funeral home to the 'What's Going On' by Marvin Gaye.

Porter had died unexpectedly from unknown causes last week. She was found unresponsive in her LA home and pronounced dead on the scene.


She lives on through her son Quincy Brown and three children, Christian, 20, and 11-year-old twin daughters D'Lila Star and Jessie James whom she shares with her ex-boyfriend, Diddy.
