Sean “Diddy” Combs has spoken out for the first time about the death of former girlfriend, Kim Porter, who passed away Thursday at age 47.

The hip-hop mogul took to Twitter Sunday to share a message about the late model, actress and mother-of-four.

“For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare,” Combs wrote in a tweet thread. “But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship.”

He added, “We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER S–T!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.”

The rapper and producer included a throwback video of himself dancing with a pregnant Porter to the SWV single When U Cry.


Porter and Combs dated on and off from 1994 until 2007.

They had three children together, 20-year-old son Christian and twin 11-year-old daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James. Porter was also mom to son Quincy Brown, 27, from a previous relationship with singer Al B. Sure.
