Kim Porter’s family and friends, including ex-boyfriend and father of her children Sean “Diddy” Combs, bid farewell to her in an elaborate funeral held in her Georgia hometown on Saturday, just a little more than a week after her death.
Combs arranged for Porter’s casket to travel in a carriage pulled by horses during the public funeral, which was held at Columbus’ Cascade Hills Church. Acclaimed pastor T.D. Jakes officiated the service.
The music mogul spoke during the service, as did Mary J. Blige and Porter’s son from a previous relationship with Al B. Sure!, Quincy Brown, TMZ reported, adding that after Brown began to cry during his remarks, Sure joined both him and Diddy onstage.
Yolanda Adams and Faith Evans reportedly also performed musical tributes.
