SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2007
Kim Porter gets her vent on in Essence magazine regarding the circumstances of her breakup with longtime boyfriend and babydaddy, Sean “Diddy” Combs.
In the October issue, on newsstands Sept. 12, Porter also talks freely about the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back in their relationship, stating the incident destroyed her trust in Diddy and led directly to the end of their 12-year, on-again off-again union.
The following are excerpts from Porter’s interview in Essence:
On Breaking Up:
ESSENCE: Were you scared?
KIM PORTER: No! Not at all. But I wanted to be dramatic. I wanted him to know I wasn't breaking up with him for two weeks-or maybe leaving for two days. If I pack up everything — twins and all — it means I'm out! Puffy's an action person, not a talk person. So I had to have an action. Telling him, “Babe, I'm leaving…” was not gonna do it.
ESSENCE: After our last article (“No Ordinary Love,” Essence, December, 2006), some readers responded by saying Sean was disrespecting you by not getting married. They said you should be trying to get that ring on your finger.
KIM PORTER: Do you know how many rings I have? I don't even have enough fingers (laughing). That's not why I left.
ESSENCE: So if he called you today and said, “I want to get married, right now….”?
KIM PORTER: I would say “No.” And not because I don't want to get married, but because he's not ready to get married. When I get married, I want to stay married. I want both parties to be on the same page at the same time, and to leave a certain type of behavior behind. That's a commitment I don't think he's ready for.
On the secret behind their breakup:
ESSENCE: Speaking of being faithful, there have been rumors about Sean and a baby in Atlanta swirling around for a while. Is this why you left the relationship?
KIM PORTER: Hmmm... Well, that definitely was part of it.
