Sean "Diddy" Combs has been struggling to deal with the recent death of Kim Porter, and now the murder of friend Nipsey Hussle.
Music icon Sean "Diddy" Combs opened up about how he is handling the successive blows he has been dealt, after the recent deaths of people he loved.
Diddy posted a clip on Instagram in which he shared his coping mechanism with his fans: a good cry.
“I ain’t gon’ lie, I been holding a lot of s*** in lately. I just had a three and a half hour cry and let it all out… or as much as I could tap into. And that s*** felt great."
In the clip, a swollen-eyed Diddy reveals that he has been crying for over three hours, letting out all the pain and grief he has bottled up.
Diddy suffered a second blow when his friend and collaborator Nipsey Hussle was murdered on March 31, 2019, just months after the death of his long-time love and mother of three of his children, Kim Porter.
Diddy had become close to Nipsey Hussle during the recording of the rapper's Grammy-nominated project, “Victory Lap:”
“Nipsey and I had just started really getting to know each other. I feel honored to have worked on his project. Nipsey represents change, he represents evolution, he represents everything our culture needs to embrace. Black ownership. Black love. Black wealth. God bless you and your family King. @laurenlondon whatever you need we are here for you. My family is your family. ”
Nipsey's sudden death, follows on the heels of Porter's demise just 5 months before, that left Diddy to raise the couple's 12-year-old twins, D'Lila Star and Jessie James.
The mother of 4 was found unresponsive in her California home, and it was later discovered that she had succumbed to an undiagnosed bout of pneumonia
Diddy held a memorial forPorter at his home in Bel Air, California, attended by friends, among whom were Kim Kardashian, Mary J. Blige, French Montana, and Kourtney Kardashian.
"Don’t be leaving nothing bottled up, you know what I’m saying? Let that thing out. God will be right there. He’ll let you know, come on, let’s get up, let’s go. I had me a three and a half hour cry. God is good. Let it go, y’all. Message me from me.”
Mental health specialists agree with Diddy, and often counsel people working through grief to vent their pain in tears.
Celebrity actress and fashion model Kim Porter passed away unexpectedly on November 15, 2018, at the age of 48.
The mother of 4 was found unresponsive in her California home, and it was later discovered that she had succumbed to an undiagnosed bout of pneumonia that she had dismissed as flu.
Porter was Sean “Diddy” Combs's longtime love, and the mother of three of his children: 12-year-old twins D'Lila and Jessie, and son Christian, 21.
Porter had a fourth son, Quincy Taylor Brown, 27, whom she shared with former boyfriend musician Al B. Sure!.
