Sean “Diddy” Combs has revealed the last thing Kim Porter said to him before she died, and it will break your heart.
The 47-year-old, who shared three kids with Sean, was sadly found dead at her home in Toluca Lake on November 15 – and it’s since been confirmed that her death was caused by lobar pneumonia.
In a new interview with Essence magazine, Diddy has opened up about Kim’s sudden death, and revealed her devastating last words to him.
He said: “Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well. She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick.”
“One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died.”
After hearing about her death, Diddy said he “jumped into mommy mode” and “sent people in every direction to try to make sure the kids would not hear about it on social media or the news.”
Strangely, the rapper felt like Kim had prepared him for life without her, in case something like this ever happened.
“It was like some superhero s**t. I ain’t even gonna lie. On some level I knew she was training me for this. I knew that I had to be ready to do whatever I was supposed to do if something like this ever happened,” he revealed.
“There was screaming and crying when I heard the news, of course, but I had to ask myself, What would Kim do? I was scared, and I was crying out to God—and to her—and almost immediately Kim’s voice kicked in, and I could hear her saying, ‘Make sure you take care of my babies.'”
Diddy and Kim dated for 13 years after meeting in 1994, and the couple had three kids together – a son named Christian, 20, and their twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie, 12.
The pair split for good in 2007, but maintained a great relationship as they continued to co-parent their three children.
Diddy also helped to raise Kim’s son Quincy Brown, 27, from her previous relationship with singer/producer Al B. Sure.
