Combs was talking to Fat Joe on Joe’s “The Joprah Show” at the time, which Joe posted to his Instagram page on April 25. Porter’s name came up during the discussion, and Combs talked about how she was his great love.
“To all the players, all the playboys, when you find that one, don’t be playing around with it, ’cause it’s rare,” said Combs. “Somebody that’s gonna understand you, be there for you unconditionally. … I feel like she was the one for me, and you know, I played around, thinking that I’m running things. God is running things. He changed me as a man and be able to really appreciate love.”
Combs swung the camera around afterward and showed off the monument, which Combs said he bought three years before Porter passed away. The art piece is a huge structure of his ex’s body cast that looks to be made out of metal.
“It’s in the middle of the rose garden, and I sit here and I just ask her what should I do [with] the kids,” Combs told Joe.
He also spoke about Porter while talking to Naomi Campbell on her internet show “No Filter with Naomi,” which was posted to YouTube on April 23. At the 42:15 mark, Combs talked about becoming more focused on his children’s futures.
“We’re really focused on our plan after this,” Combs told Campbell. “Taking time to really ask the girls and ask the kids really what they want to do. We formed a company called Combs Cartel, which is our family business, and a lot of their projects will go underneath that.
“But we’re trying to really just plan and see what we want to take to the next step as a family, because losing Kim and now being a single father of six, my thinking had to change,” he added. “I had to really get focused on their futures, ’cause I know how rough it is out here.”
Porter passed away on Nov. 15, 2018, of lobar pneumonia in Toluca Lake, California, at age 47. She and Combs shared twin girls together, 13-year-olds D’Lila and Jessie James, as well 22-year-old Christian Combs, a son.
Porter’s other son, Quincy Brown, is from her relationship with the singer Al B. Sure.
