Other Relationship Information about Kim Porter and Diddy:
Kim says it wasn't until after their daughters were born that Diddy finally came to her with the news of his first daughter, Chance, with mistress Sarah Chapman.
The entire time that Diddy was an A&R executive at Uptown Records, where Kim was the receptionist, Kim had left him when he started dating Jennifer Lopez. However, Diddy couldn't stop thinking about Kim.
When Kim was pregnant with the couple's first child, Christian, Diddy stepped out of the relationship and took up with Jennifer Lopez. Diddy began parading Jennifer Lopez around in front of the paparazzi.
For two years after his breakup with Lopez, Diddy worked to win Kim back, calling her home in Atlanta where she was living with her children, speaking to her parents, buying her gifts, striving for her affection. Kim was skeptical, but she loved him, she missed him, and they'd had 2 children together. When Diddy finally convinced Kim he was ready to make a change, she took him back.
Kim's mother was skeptical about Kim and Diddy's reunion.
In late June 2007, while Diddy was nearly 3,000 miles away at the BET Awards, Porter invited her friends over to their home in Alpine, New Jersey, and opened a bottle of wine. It was time to take care of business.
Sometime later in Kim's pregnancy, a girlfriend pulled her aside to deliver the news. Diddy had betrayed her in the worst way by his mistress Sarah Chapman recently giving birth to a daughter.
Kim wants to make it clear that her dramatic departure, the dissolution of her decade-long relationship, and the fact that she abruptly walked out on the father of her 4 children, was not all about Diddy. It wasn't even about his other baby. It certainly wasn't about Sienna Miller, with whom Diddy was reported to have been spending time, both in the U.S. and England. She finally left him because she felt a deep dissatisfaction and knew that there had to be more to family life than what she was experiencing.
Classic Quotes by Kim Porter and Diddy about their relationship:
"I know him like I know my kids. He's gentle, giving and sensitive, especially to me." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"As black women, we sacrifice. We stand by our man, through thick and thin, through whatever. But if you feel like, 'Maybe I am getting the short end of the stick,' that's when a change has to take place. I wasn't even coming from the place of who, what, why. I laid low and did what women do: I did my background work, collected information. But I wasn't even on it like that because I was pregnant, and what was bubbling inside me was a blessing from God. I couldn't let my energy be on that. I didn't have time for any drama, trauma and bullsh*t. It's not an original script. He's not the first man who's cheated. He's not the first man who's had a baby outside of his relationship. He's not the originator of this. But at this point in my life - I have girls now - it's a different program." Kim Porter 7/2007
"I'm not impressed with things. I've got a lot of stuff. Impress me with your person. Show me you can be a really good man." Kim Porter 2006
"This is the most monogamous I've ever been in my life." Diddy 2006
"It's not an original script. He's not the first man who's cheated. He's not the first man who's had a baby outside of his relationship. He's not the originator of this, but at this point in my life, I have girls now...it's a different program." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"I would have preferred to find out from him because that's a man. I know it's hard for anyone to say to their significant other, 'I've gotten into some sh** and I got a baby on the way.' But men do get caught up in things; I'm not naive to that. Still, there's a right and a wrong way to handle it. Because, most of all we were friends. Even if I couldn't have understood it as a woman, I would have understood it as a friend." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"He told me that he may have gotten himself into a situation and he may have fathered another child outside the relationship and I said, 'Really? Well I already knew. I'm glad you decided to be a man.' I was like, 'Dude, this is whack, I can't even respect you right now.' And for me, once the respect is gone, I'm not even listening to you." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"I had to be dramatic so he would know that it wasn't like I was breaking up with him for two weeks or leaving for two days. I wanted him to know I'm out and 'Babe, I'm leaving...'was not gonna do it." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"I'm a southern girl and my home life is numero uno. I'm used to having stability and being in control in my house. Before, when I was living in Georgia with my kids [before the reconciliation], if the mood in the house was not right, it was because of me. Then there I was, back in New York, with that whole energy and the whole [New York Post's] Page Six drama and it just was not flowing for me. It was going against my energy. I wasn't waking up feeling my energy. I wasn't waking up feeling happy. There's no other way for me to articulate it, other than a feeling. I just wasn't feeling it, that's why I had to leave." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"I love him and he still loves me. It's just, I invested ten years and I don't have another ten years. I don't have another two years to give to a relationship that isn't where it should be. I gave him plenty of time to show that he'd grown as a man, but you know what? Time's up." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"Christian's got two beautiful sisters. He ain't thinking about that other one, trust me when I tell you. And I don't play that. That situation is over there and this is over here and I ain't got nothing to do with that. It's one thing when you don't know [that the man is in a relationship]; then you get a pass. but if you know and you're still doing wrong, then that's a problem. I'm not going to befriend or even deal with someone who would go there." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
"I feel good. I think it's the freedom of not being responsible for someone's emotions or how they feel about certain things. And since I had the babies, my agent's been calling me for auditions...and you just know when it's your time to strike, when it's your time to do what you need to do. That whole feeling has me elated, like I'm giggling inside. My peace of mind, my quality of life, my home and my happiness mean everything to me. Those things mean more to me than living with the father of my kids and now I have that." Kim Porter 7/25/2007
