Diddy Responds to Fans Asking Why He Never Married Kim Porter

Diddy lost the mother of four of his children, Kim Porter, late last year, and has been having an understandably tough time processing her death.

Over the weekend, the music mogul took to Instagram to share a touching story about his relationship with Porter, recalling a time she went above and beyond to be there for him during a music video shoot.

“I remember Kim flying to see me on the set of can’t nobody hold me down. She took like a 12 hour flight to LA and 3 hour ride to the desert. With no complaints. Was always ride or die. From day 1,” Diddy wrote. “I called her BONNIE AND I WAS CLYDE! This picture will go down in history as the first time I said she was MINE!!!! AND THE FIRST TIME I TOLD HER I LOVE HER, little did I know I was hers. Miss you BONNIE ❤️ and will forever. Maaaaan life is beautiful to have had these experiences. Love you baby. @ladykp.”

Though many of Diddy’s followers sought to comfort the heartbroken father, some felt the need to question why he waited until her passing to publicly profess his love for her. Surprisingly, he actually responded, telling other young men not to follow in his footsteps when it comes to committing to the woman they love.

When asked why he didn’t marry Porter, Diddy said, “just didn’t happen. That had nothing to do with love.” He then admitted to dating Jennifer Lopez shortly after Porter showed up during the aforementioned video shoot to support him.

Another follower went on to call the Bad Boy boss “fake,” to which he replied, “Never fake. I wasn’t ready and that’s it. I’m ready now but it’s too late. Don’t be like me.” The rapper then responded to a third follower, admitting that fear was a major reason he never made Ms. Porter Mrs. Combs.
