Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is fully focused on his family, following his ex-girlfriend Kim Porter’s untimely passing, as he admitted he was a “part-time father” before her death.
The Last Night hitmaker tragically lost his former girlfriend in November 2018 but since her passing, he is a “lot more present” with his kids.
Speaking in the May issue of Essence magazine, he said: “Before this, I was a part-time father, you know? My family was always first, but there are countless times when I chose work over everything else.
“But every day I can hear her telling me to go and spend some time with the kids and make sure everybody’s all right, like she would do. I’m just a lot more present, and, most important, now my kids come before anything else in my life.”
Diddy – who has Christian, 21, Jessie, 12, and D’Lila Star, 12, with the late model – previously praised his ex-girlfriend for doing a “great job” in raising their children and noted that their twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James are just like her.
Posting a picture of the twins with their grandfather alongside an old snap of Kim with her father as a child, Diddy wrote: @ladykp look at your babies. They do everything like you. They take care of me and I take care of them Thank you for best family a man could ask for @ladykp I SALUTE YOU QUEEN. YOU DID A GREAT JOB RAISING US INCLUDING ME. THE BABIES LOOK LIKE you AND ACT LIKE YOU. DOWN TO THERE MANERISIM they’re you. And we miss you @ladykp #KIMSTRONG WE LOVE YOU MAMA (sic)”
Diddy also raises Kim’s 27-year-old son Quincy, and his two children from other relationships – Justin, 24, and Chance, 12.
