He clarified how the battle with depression.“I was getting older, and I just went through a dark time,” he told those in attendance at her funeral on Saturday.
“What’s more, despite the fact that we weren’t as one, she was that sort of person. She would come over and… she was much the same as, ‘Please, Puff. You gotta get up. You gotta get up out the bed. You gotta go ahead. You gotta get up.'”
For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. 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
“‘God, I hope one day I get me a girl like that,'” he energetically thought. “I would come into the workplace consistently and she office at the front work area. Also, I would be so eager to come up in the lift. To realize that I would see her.”
Melodic tributes were performed by Faith Evans and Yolanda Adams,
Diddy dated Kim on and off from 1994 until they split for good in 2007, with the pair sharing a 20-year-old son, Christian, and 11-year-old twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jessie James.
