Kim Porter is finally opening up about her packing up her and the kids sh*t, moving out, and dumping Diddy. In the October issue of Essence Magazine Kim talks about her relationship with Puffy, her rings, and why she really left. Via Essence.com:
ESSENCE: After our last article (“No Ordinary Love”, Essence, December, 2006), some readers responded by saying Sean was disrespecting you by not getting married. They said you should be trying to get that ring on your finger.
KIM PORTER: Do you know how many rings I have? I don’t even have enough fingers (laughing). That’s not why I left.
ESSENCE: So if he called you today and said, “I want to get married, right now….”?
KIM PORTER: I would say “No.” And not because I don’t want to get married, but because he’s not ready to get married. When I get married, I want to stay married. I want both parties to be on the same page at the same time, and to leave a certain type of behavior behind. That’s a commitment I don’t think he’s ready for.
ESSENCE: If it wasn’t over the marriage, then why did you end the relationship?
KIM PORTER: I left because at this point in my life I want something different for myself. I invested ten years, I have children, and I’ve always stood by him. But now it’s time for me and what I want to do for Kim.
ESSENCE: How have you two been getting along since you left?
KIM PORTER: You know how when two people go their separate ways, most of the time there’s animosity? It’s not like that with us. Sean and I have this bond, this friendship. It’s not about ‘if you’re faithful to me, if I’m being faithful to you.’ We’re friends. I’m the person he can tell his inner most thoughts to and he’s that person for me. He still calls me everyday and we talk. There’s no ill feeling or ‘I can’t stand you, I hate you, don’t call.’ There’s none of that. We have three children together so that’s just not an option. We’re committed to our children even if we couldn’t commit to each other.
ESSENCE: Speaking of being faithful, there have been rumors about Sean and a baby in Atlanta swirling around for a while. Is this why you left the relationship?
KIM PORTER: Hmmm… Well, that definitely was part of it.
Maybe it’s just me, but that sounds like same ole crap she was talking before. When she starts saying, “Yeah I left that b*tch nicca ’cause he paid some broad that he knocked up in Atlanta a million dollars to keep quiet about her pregnancy while I was pregnant,” or “That no good bastard was out sneaking around with some British slut (Sienna Miller) while I was at home with our brand new twins,” that will be the day.
