Sean 'Diddy' Combs delivered a heartfelt tribute to his ex-girlfriend Kim Porter on Saturday at her funeral. The eulogy lasted 15 minutes and Diddy toughed it out without breaking down.
He talked about how Kim taught him how to love. He revealed at the beginning of the year he was dealing with depression and Kim would come over and comfort him, making sure he was okay.
Diddy went on to describe their evolving relationship, a relationship that produced three children and a relationship that was solid from beginning to end.There were moments so moving that people cheered. Diddy said he would always be there for his kids, and he got a big laugh when he talked about how his daughters could confide in him, confide "everything."
He ended by making it clear, Kim will always be with him.
Kim was in a golden casket topped with a bouquet of flowers, along with a black and white photo of her. A band and church choir provided music. Several people gave eulogies for Kim, including Mary J. Blige, Dallas Austin, Bishop Noel Jones, her son Quincy Brown and of course, Diddy.
Yolanda Adams performed "Just a Prayer Away" and Faith Evans sang "His Eye is On the Sparrow.”
Kim was buried next to her mother.
The local fire department was at the cemetery because fireworks were shot off in her honor and police were on hand for security.
Diddy was spotted sitting next to Kim’s gravesite looking deep in thought as several people, including Usher, gathered on the cemetery lawn to watch the fireworks show.
