What’s Trend­ing

People (South Africa) - - Contents -

SEAN ‘DIDDY’ COMBS took to In­sta­gram re­cently to share a video tribute to his ex, model and ac­tress who was found dead at her home in Toluca Lake, Cal­i­for­nia. Re­ports sug­gest the 47-year-old, who is mother to three of Diddy’s kids, had suf­fered a car­diac ar­rest while bat­tling a short ill­ness, and as he reeled from the heart-break­ing loss, the hip-hop mogul shared video footage of him­self and Kim at a ma­ter­nity photo shoot they did for Essence mag­a­zine back in 2006. The clip, which was set to the sounds of SWV’s When U Cry, fea­tured the then-cou­ple em­brac­ing and shar­ing kisses in be­tween shots as they cel­e­brated the im­pend­ing births of their twin daugh­ters Jessie James and D’Lila. “For the last three days I’ve been try­ing to wake up out of this night­mare. But I haven’t,” Diddy wrote in the cap­tion. “I don’t know what I’m go­ing to do with­out you baby. I miss you so much.” He went on, “To­day I’m go­ing to pay tribute to you, I’m go­ing to try and find the words to ex­plain our un­ex­plain­able re­la­tion­ship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soul­mates. WE WERE SOME OTHER S***!! And I miss you so much. Su­per Black Love.” Diddy and Kim dated on and off for 13 years from 1994 to 2007 and re­mained close even after their split. In ad­di­tion to their 11-year-old girls, they also had 20-year-old son Chris­tian, while Kim shared 27-year-old Quincy with record pro­ducer Al B. Sure!. Shortly after Diddy broke his si­lence on­line, Quincy added his own touch­ing note for his late mother. “I am bro­ken…& the only thing that makes sense right now is that you were way too good for this silly world we live in. I love you so much MOMMY.,” he wrote. “Please give Mee-Maw [grandma] the big­gest hug and kiss for me.”
