Kimora Lee Simmons Celebrates Diddy & Kim Porter's Twin Daughters' B-Day with Touching Post
Kimora Lee Simmons continues to look out for her late friend Kim Porter's kids. The fashion designer paid tribute to Porter and Sean "Diddy" Combs' twin daughters, Jessie James and D'Lila Star, as they turned 13.
After Porter's untimely death last year, a heartbroken Simmons promised to take care of her friend's kids. The former model's death came one month before the twins' birthday, so it must have been more devastating.
This year, Jessie and D'Lila celebrated their birthday a month after the first anniversary of their mother's death, and family and friends made sure it was a good time despite the circumstances.
While the event boasted high-profile guests like Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Mary J. Blige, Diddy made sure to spotlight some special guests
In an emotional Instagram post, Simmons, 44, paid tribute to the young ladies who just entered their teenage years. She posted a photo of the twins in matching blue dresses and another shot where they all puckered up for a selfie.
In the caption, she wrote:
"HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY @the_combs_twins!! Auntie loves you sooo much! You are beautiful, smart and sweet! So proud of you beautiful young ladies! Cheers to many many more!!"

At your homegoing celebration today it became all too real that you are not coming back. I cannot stop crying but I will be strong for you. Gone WAY too soon. Wtf. I am in shock. To my beautiful friend and sister, I love you.❤️ This is unbelievable. When I first heard the news, I was angry that someone would play such a stupid ass joke. They said you were in your room sleeping. Aoki and I rushed to your house to tell you to ‘get up and come your ass outside!’ But soon as i arrived I realized you would not come. Every room I walk into now I think, “ok, I will just go and get Kim.” But I see that I cannot. This is all too close and too sad. Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD! You are a girls girl which is why we’ve stayed close always. We are so alike in so many ways, we shared clothes, food, attitudes, friends, enemies, the greatest happinesses and the worst sadnesses. We’ve been married, given birth, raised families, gotten divorced, experienced death and everything in between-together. You are a great mama. Between us we have 8 kids who are all cousins. We are, and will always be-a family. I will look after yours and you will look after and guide us all. What a beautiful, loving, sassy soul to have lost. We love you forever. May God bless your journey. We will never stop crying for you❤️🕊 #kimporter #forevermylady #rip 😢 #blackexcellence 👑✨
When Porter died of pneumonia last year, Simmons was one of the heartbroken celebrities who expressed their grief via social media. She shared several photos of the duo during Porter's lifetime and revealed how she processed the bad news.
Simmons admitted that when she heard her friend had died, the first thing she did was rush over to her house. She even took her second daughter, Aoki, along, but soon realized Porter was not coming back.
"Every room I walk into now, I think, 'ok, I will just go and get Kim.' But I see that I cannot. This is all too close and too sad," she added. "Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD!"
Porter was a longtime girlfriend to Diddy, 50, and even though the duo was not together at the time of her death, they remained a tight-knit family. The music mogul still considers her the love of his life.
DIDDY'S LONGTIME LOVE
Porter and Diddy shared three kids, son Christian, 21, and the twins. Diddy also raised Quincy Brown, 28, Porter's son from a previous relationship. With other women, the "Bad Boy" founder has a 25-year-old son named Justin, and a 13-year-old daughter, Chance.
Diddy has been trying his best to play Porter's role in their children's lives, and on December 13, he was on hand to celebrate with the twins at a star-studded bash he threw for their 13th birthday.
