Sean Diddy’s ex-girlfriend and model Kim Porter was finally lain to rest in her hometown in Georgia on Saturday. The public funeral was attended by the deceased’s family, Diddy as well as many other celebrities who were friends with the model.
Diddy mourned his late love’s death with an emotional eulogy in which he even talked about his struggle with mental health issues and how Porter helped him in overcoming them.
Finally Lain to Rest
TMZ obtained an audio recording of Diddy’s moving farewell speech to the 47-year-old model. The singer sounded emotional as he detailed his powerful relationship with Porter. In the eulogy, he spoke fondly of the mother of his children, who died last week of an apparent cardiac arrest.
Diddy was barely holding it together as he recalled the time when he was extremely depressed. He said that Porter helped him when he was going through a hard time. She would often come to his place and urge him to get out of bed. It was clear that she loved him dearly even though their relationship ended many years ago.
Diddy said that it’s often hard to love someone when you’re not with them, but Kim always made sure that she was there for him and their kids. The funeral service was attended by Kim’s children as well as her ex-boyfriend AI B. Sure! Some other big names included Mary J. Blige, DJ Khaled, Usher, Winnie Harlow, Kimora Lee Simmons, Russell Simmons, Cynthia Bailey, Lil Kim and Faith Evans.
Kim Porter died tragically last week after 911 received a phone call from her home saying that she was having a cardiac arrest. The model had been suffering from flu-like symptoms before her death which later turned out to be pneumonia. Porter and Diddy were extremely close, after having dated for almost 13 years. The two also have children together: 20-year-old son Christian Combs and twin daughters Jessie and D’Lila, 11.
Diddy shared yet another moving tribute to the late model on Instagram just before the funeral. It was a beautiful photo of Kim Porter in a white dress and tiara with a caption reading, “Today we lay to rest our ANGEL. Her spirit lives on with us FOREVER!!! We thank you all for your prayers and support. You have no idea how much it means to us. We thank GOD for all of you. #KimPorter.”
The rapper has been sharing a lot of posts with Kim recently. Just a few days ago, he posted a video of her having fun on the beach with the kids. In the eulogy, Diddy said that even after their love story was over, he and Kim were like best friends who would always be there for each other. He ended the emotional speech with ‘We love you Kim, thank you,’ followed by an applause from the audience.
The model found her final resting place next to her deceased mother.
