TOLUCA LAKE, Calif. — Sean “Diddy” Combs has found the words to publicly grieve Kim Porter three days after her death.
The 47-year-old model and actress was found dead Thursday at her home in Toluca Lake, California. Combs broke his silence over his ex’s death on Sunday with a heartfelt tribute on social media.
“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,” he wrote in the caption.
Porter and Combs were a couple for more than a decade and remained close after they parted ways in 2007. They had twin daughters and a son together. Porter had an older son from a previous 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 post reads.
The post includes footage of the couple from a 2006 Essence shoot that’s been making the rounds on social media since Porter’s death.
In the footage, Porter is pregnant as the two dance and embrace with SWV’s “When U Cry” playing. Porter gushes as she describes her excitement over being able to share an example of black love. “We don’t get a chance to see much of that,” she says to the camera.
No information has been released about the cause of Porter’s death.
Diddy’s words come two days after another famous ex of Porter’s paid tribute to her.
R&B singer and producer Al B. Sure shared a photo of him and Porter on Instagram with the hashtag #ForeverMyLady. The hashtag refers to a hit Jodeci song, “Forever My Lady,” which Al B. wrote about her.
Porter and Al B. share her oldest son, Quincy Brown, who stars on the Fox series “Star.”
