How Diddy's scandalous affairs were the final nail to the coffin in his relationship with the late Kim Porter
Since Porter's death in November 2018, Diddy has been vocal about his apparent feelings for the late mother of his children, however, their relationship was quite the rocky one
Months have passed since Sean "Diddy" Comb's model girlfriend Kim Porter's demise, but he's still attempting to drown his sorrows in public posts and announcements, mostly reflecting on the poor decisions he made during their unstable romantic relationship of many years.
The multi-talented Diddy, during his latest conversation with Fat Joe on Instagram Live, talked about him cheating on her in their relationship and how the industry that he works in influenced his infidelity.
He said, "This is a special PSA announcement for all beaches. Playboys. You know, when you find that one, don’t play with it. It's weird, someone who understands you and is there for you unconditionally. Sometimes you can be in the hot game and want to experience everything. As a man, I feel like I screwed over that."
Admitting to his actions that caused a crack in his relationship with Porter, he added, "I feel like she was the one for me. I played thinking I'm handling things, god is handling things."
Ever since Porter's death in November 2018 Diddy has been vocal about his apparent feelings for the late mother of his children, however, their relationship was quite the rocky one.
The couple began dating in the 90s and had their first son Christian Casey in 1998. Less than a year after his son’s birth, Diddy had called it quits on his relationship with Porter and openly dated Jennifer Lopez for nearly two years.
He reconciled with Porter in 2003, but marriage was never on the cards for the ill-fated couple. They held on to their strained relationship and welcomed their twin daughters D'Lila Star and Jessie James in 2006.
In an interview with People the same year, Diddy stated, "I know she deserves to get married, but I'm just not ready. It's not a reflection on how much I love Kim. It's that I'm just learning how to be a good boyfriend. When I'm finished with this step, I'll move on to the next."
After a lot of back and forth with their complicated association and Porter learning about Diddy fathering another woman’s child while she was pregnant with their twins, she decided it was best they called whatever they had off, at least for their children's sake.
"It's not an original script. He's not the first man who's cheated. He's not the first man who’s had a baby outside of his relationship. He's not the originator of this. But at this point in my life — I have girls now — it's a different program," Porter had said.
Their on-again-off-again relationship finally came to an end in 2007 after Porter walked out of the relationship in a dramatic way.
"I wanted him to know I wasn’t breaking up with him for two weeks — or maybe leaving for two days. If I pack up everything — twins and all — it means I’m out! Puffy’s an action person, not a talk person. So I had to have an action. Telling him, ‘Babe, I’m leaving,’ was not gonna do it,” Porter had stated as she reflected on their split.
However, they continued staying friends even after experience a lot of bitterness in each other’s presence. And their children were one of the main reasons Porter and Diddy stayed in touch.
“We’re committed to our children even if we couldn’t commit to each other”, Porter once remarked in an interview.
