Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs in an exclusive interview with Essence magazine, revealed Kim Porter’s last words to him.
Porter had been a longtime love of mogul and music impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs, and the two had three children together.
They were not a couple at the time of her death, but they remained tight and had a close-knit family including 12-year-old twin daughters and a son, 21. The family also includes her 27-year-old son from a prior relationship and Combs’ daughter, 13, and son, 25, from other relationships.
In the May issue of Essence, the 49-year-old said that before she passed on, she had this to say:
“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.”
Those words would hit him hard when she was reported dead at her home in California.
“I jumped into mommy mode. I sent people in every direction to try to make sure the kids would not hear about it on social media or the news. I had to get to the girls’ school and find Quincy, who was on set in Atlanta. Christian was on a plane, and I had his phone disconnected so he wouldn’t read it in the air,” Combs explained
“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,’”
