On Wednesday (May 20), Diddy shared a heartfelt tribute to two of his fallen loved ones: his longtime friend Andre Harrell and the mother of his children, Kim Porter.
"SAVE ME A DANCE!! @ladykp @andreharrell 💔," Diddy captioned a video of the two dancing together while welcoming the New Year in 2018. "I PROMISE Y’ALL I’M GOING TO FINISH WHAT WE STARTED!!! REST IN POWER. Sh*t done got REAL!!!! ✊🏿🖤."
Andre died on May 7 at the age of 59. The music executive, who famously discovered Diddy, died of heart failure in his West Hollywood home. "I honestly still can’t believe it," Diddy wrote on Instagram following the tragic news. "I’ve got to give myself the reality of this in doses. Because I can’t even handle this. I hope to God that you are all blessed to have someone in your life that loves you and believes in you like this man believed in me.… I’m going to miss him so much. I can’t even imagine life without Dre. God bless @gianni, @onealmcknight and the rest of the family. 🖤✊🏿 LOVE YOU FOREVER @andreharrell !!!!!!!!!!"
Kim, who shares four children with Diddy, passed away from lobar pneumonia in her California home on November 15, 2018 at the age of 47.
On the one-year anniversary of her death, Diddy shared a touching Instagram tribute, writing, "I MISS YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. So much 💔. Every time I get sad I look at this video and it brings a smile to my face. I THANK GOD FOR THE PRECIOUS TIME HE ALLOWED US TO HAVE WITH YOU. I WISH YOU WERE HERE WITH US RIGHT NOW AND THIS WAS ALL A DREAM. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON THAT WISH. NEVER!!! Love you forever Kimberly Antwinette Goodwin Porter. ❤️"
