Diddy Says Fear Kept Him From Wedding Kim Porter
Since her passing late last year, Diddy has been openly grieving longtime love Kim Porter… This weekend he continued to mourn publicly posting an old photo of the pair from the set of his “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” video, recalling how Kim traveled some 15 hours to accompany him:
I remember Kim flying to see me on the set of can’t nobody hold me down. She took like a 12 hour flight to LA and 3 hour ride to the desert. With no complaints. Was always ride or die. From day 1! I called her BONNIE AND I WAS CLYDE! This picture will go down in history as the first time I said she was MINE!!!! AND THE FIRST TIME I TOLD HER I LOVE HER, little did I know I was hers. Miss you BONNIE ❤️ and will forever. Maaaaan life is beautiful to have had these experiences. Love you baby. @ladykp 🖤
Beautiful words and memories, but his tenderness evoked a lot of tough questions in his comments section.
One woman questioned:
And You Never Married her Whyyyyyyyyy???? Yes I said it……. you fake…… My opinion
Her question drew nearly 2000 likes at last count, but Diddy didn’t dodge any questions or block any commenters. He responded:
“never fake. I wasn’t ready and that’s it. I’m ready now but it’s to [sic] late Don’t be like me.”
Someone else noted:
“But you ended up dating JLo at that time”
yes I did
Another commenter questioned:
You had all this “love” for her secretly.. yet dated other women while she was living. Now all of a sudden she’s not here anymore and mysteriously you want the world to see and know that she’s your soulmate. Why didn’t she get this love with these beautiful captions while she was here to see it?? Why didn’t you marry her??
I was scared.
Do you think Diddy should be commended for his accountability? It seems likely he’ll never recover from these regrets, but maybe if he’s fortunate enough to find love again he won’t make the same mistakes. What do you think?
Hit the flip for more reactions
One of Kim’s reacted strongly to the backlash against Diddy, assuring the public that Kim was happy and whole without marriage to Combs:
I wanna fist fight every single person coming for @Diddy on the Kim situation. My friend was whole. She loved him and she KNEW how much he loved her. She was whole. Folks think she was broken or less than because he didn’t marry her – should he have? Maybe … but she was loved
Y’all… I’m talking about my friend. She was whole… everyone so pressed about why he didn’t marry her and nobody stopped to even think IF Kim wanted to marry this man – WOMEN HAVE A SAY TOO… always looking at the man like “why didn’t you….” maybe she was straight!!!
She makes excellent points, do you agree?
