Her relationship with Diddy:
Puff daddy dated Kim porter for about 13 years, Even though they broke up years ago Diddy never stopped interacting with Kim, sources say that their connection went beyond the fact they were co-parenting 3 kids … they genuinely had love and affection for each other.
They celebrated holidays as a family, vacationed together and just hung out … and there was never an extended period where they were at odds with each other.
For their three kids they never had a formal custody agreement. They accommodated each other’s schedules when it came to the kids — and it always worked.
Infarct they were so close it was rumored that Diddy was still getting “that close” with her, he posted a really saucy image of her during her birthday in 2017. He was still dating Cassie at the time
I am so saddened by the passing of Kim Porter, a beautiful spirit and loving mother. May she Rest In Peace. Please pray for Diddy, their children, family, and friends for strength at this hour. #KimPorter pic.twitter.com/bIfPh5y0OV
