Diddy Says He Regrets Not Marrying Kim Porter

On Saturday, Sean “Diddy” Combs posted a throwback pic on Instagram that had some folks talking.
The mogul shared a photo of himself and the late Kim Porter when they were at a video shoot in 1997 for his song, “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down.”
Diddy posted, “I remember Kim flying to see me on the set of can’t nobody hold me down. She took like a 12 hour flight to LA and 3 hour ride to the desert. With no complaints. Was always ride or die. From day 1! I called her BONNIE AND I WAS CLYDE! This picture will go down in history as the first time I said she was MINE!!!! AND THE FIRST TIME I TOLD HER I LOVE HER, little did I know I was hers. Miss you BONNIE ❤️ and will forever. Maaaaan life is beautiful to have had these experiences. Love you baby. @ladykp 🖤”

The post has since received over 800,000 likes and a slew of comments. Fans asked Diddy why he never married Porter, especially since they had over a decade long relationship and children together.
Diddy replied, “I was scared. I wasn’t ready and that’s it. I’m ready now, but it’s too late. Don’t be like me.”
Porter, 47, died from lobar pneumonia. Porter and Combs had three children together: Christian Combs (also known as King Combs) and twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James.
