Closer (UK) - - News - By Lily Smith

They had dated on T and off for over a decade, and last week rap­per P Diddy – aka Sean Combs – faced the dev­as­tat­ing news that his ex-girl­friend Kim Porter, with whom he shares three kids, had died amid re­ports she’d suf­fered a car­diac ar­rest af­ter a bat­tle with pneu­mo­nia.

And as pic­tures emerged of Diddy, 49, hold­ing a me­mo­rial ser­vice at his house for Kim, sources say he’s de­ter­mined to keep her me­mory alive for their son Chris­tian, 20, and twin daugh­ters, D’lila Star and Jessie James, both 11.

IN­CON­SOLABLE

A source says, “Kim was so im­por­tant to Diddy and he’s been in­con­solable over her death. He’s try­ing to stay­ing strong for the kids and has vowed to do ev­ery­thing to raise them the way Kim wanted and will al­ways cel­e­brate her life.”

The star, 49 – who also raised Kim’s son from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship, Quincy Brown, now 27 – posted a mon­tage of the pair on In­sta­gram, writ­ing, “For the last three days I’ve been try­ing to wake up out of this night­mare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m go­ing to do with­out you baby. I miss you so much.”

UPS AND DOWNS

And along­side a pic­ture of their fam­ily, he posted, “I’ll raise our fam­ily just like you taught me to. Love you for­ever !!!! ”.

Diddy met Kim, who was just 47 when she died, in 1994. The pair dated on and off – Diddy fa­mously dated Jen­nifer Lopez in 1999 – un­til 2007, when Kim found out he’d fa­thered a baby with an­other wo­man.

The source adds, “Through their up and downs, Diddy al­ways loved Kim. He can’t be­lieve she’s gone, but is de­ter­mined to give their kids a happy fu­ture.”
