Funeral plans are underway for Kim Porter, the actor/model and coparent with former husband Diddy who died suddenly last week at 47. TMZ reports that the funeral, held this Saturday in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia, will include a horse-drawn carriage transporting Porter’s casket, and longtime friend Faith Evans will sing. Evans, part of Diddy’s Bad Boy empire, was married to the Notorious B.I.G. when he was murdered in 1997, and she’s remained part of his collective, joining Diddy in 2016 on the Bad Boy reunion tour.
TMZ also reports that Diddy, who has three children with Evans, isn’t yet sure if he will be capable of delivering a eulogy. The entrepreneur and producer has been publicly working through his grief on Instagram, posting videos and photographs of Porter, including footage from an Essence photoshoot when she was pregnant. “For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare,” he wrote. “But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. 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 SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love 🖤”
Porter died November 15 after a long bout with pneumonia, but her cause of death is still unknown after an autopsy.
