It’s been just over two weeks since Kim Porter was found dead and just about a week since she was laid to rest.
And now, for the first time, the late model’s oldest son has spoken out about the tragedy.
Posting the above photo of himself and his mom, 27-year old Quincy Brown penned the following caption/tribute to Porter on Sunday night:
You showed me how to simply live life and be happy no matter the circumstances. So that’s exactly what I’m doing. I miss you [and] love you so much, mommy.
Pretty simple. Pretty straightfoward. Pretty powerful.
Porter was discoverd inside her Los Angeles home back on November 15.
We’re still awaiting the results of an autospy test to determine her cause of death, but multiple sources have confirmed that she was coming off a bout of pneumonia and was feeling ill the day before she died.
Still, of course, many questions about what transpired remain.
Porter was the mother of four kids, three of them with rapper and producing mogul Diddy.
She and the global superstar were together at various points for 13 years, splitting for good in 2007, but remaining very close in the subsequent years as they transitioned to friends and parents.
“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,” Diddy wrote on social media in his first post since Kim passed away.
He added at the time:
“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–T!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.”
Several days after writing these moving words, Diddy spoken many others out loud while eulogizing Porter at her funeral in Georgia.
First, he talked about his three kids with Porter and Quincy, who he cared for like a father after Porter welcomed him due to a relationship with artist Al B. Sure.
“I just want to say to my kids, Justin, Christian, D’Lila, Jessie, Chance and the other man in the house, Quincy: Your mother instilled in me this, and I pledge in front of everybody right now that I will always be there for you.
“I will always take care of you.”
Diddy also addressed Porter directly in his emotional speech, according to a number of onlookers.
“Kim, we gonna miss you so much,” he said, adding:
“But I ain’t gonna miss you too much because I’m not gonna let your voice inside of me stop talking.
“I know you like to talk to me a lot once you get on those rants, and I just want you to know I’m gonna be listening.”
Diddy went on to recognize the unusual connection he shared with Porter, concluding as follows:
“As time went on, our relationship took so many different changes, from being boyfriend and girlfriend to being lovers to being best friends to being just straight-up homies, like somebody that you know you can count on.
“And we just love y’all, we appreciate y’all, appreciate the family. To all the words that I’m forgetting, to anything I’m forgetting to say, we love you, Kim.
May Kim Porter rest in peace.
