THE COUPLE'S WHIRLWIND ROMANCE

Their whirlwind romance started in the late 1990s. The 50-year-old veteran rapper was an intern at Uptown Records in New York City, while Porter was the record label's receptionist.

For Diddy, working on the same record label provided an opportunity to get to know Porter. Jessica Rosenblum, Porter's friend, says that the rap icon was determined to get the former model to date him.

Porter took a while to agree to a date Diddy requested. Rosenblum added that the musician had been persistent; he would not give up once he wanted something until he got it.

After welcoming their 23-year-old son, King, in 1998, the couple broke up in 1999 but later reconciled in 2003. In 2006, Porter gave birth to twin daughters Jessie and D'Lila Star, who are now 14 years old.

However, the pair split for the final time in 2007, which led them to live separately. Porter and their children lived together in a beautiful mansion in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles.

RAISING HIS CHILDREN AS A SINGLE FATHER

The "I'll Be Missing You" singer expressed his gratitude to his friends and other relatives for helping him raise his large family. In addition, he credited Porter for assisting him, and the kids overcome grief.

Diddy has changed his parenting methods after Porter's death. The renowned rapper said he needed to focus on his children's future because he knew how hard it would be once they became independent.

Outside of his music career, the single dad manages the family business, Comb's Cartel. One of the legendary rapper's plans is to run the company with his children.
