Over the last three days, Diddy has taken to social media multiple times to vent about losing the woman he refers to as “his soulmate.” The reports about Kim’s funeral further confirm just how special she was to Diddy.
On Sunday, November 18, Diddy also held a private memorial for Kim Porter’s close friends and family. The event reportedly took place at Diddy’s Bel-Air, California home. During the event, Diddy uploaded a video clip of the memorial to share with fans. Even then, he expressed how difficult it is to process all that has happened over the last few days.
“For the last three days, I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare,” he tweeted on November 18. “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.” In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, “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.”
