While she made a name for herself ripping the runway and serving major 'lewks' during the '90's, the proud mom of four's on-again off-again relationship with music mogul, Diddy, kept her in the headlines as one of hip-hop's earliest #couplegoals.
Here's a look back on their relationship through the years:
"The first time I saw her, she was at the studio with her ex-boyfriend (singer Al B. Sure, the father of Porter’s oldest child, Quincy) I wasn’t trying to holler at her or anything, but I was admiring her—her lips, her eyes, her mouth, her shape, her energy—and thinking, ‘I wish I had a girl like that,'" he explained.
"She wasn’t like a New York girl. She was Bohemian, mixed with Georgia-peach hospitality. I got the idea she’d like doing stuff like walking barefoot in the grass. I didn’t think I could get her to like me.She was smooth, you know, like ice. She’s cool and collected and thinks before she speaks. You meet a lot of young ladies, and they just don’t do that. Kim was never pressed; she was always in control."
"It just didn’t feel right without her. I’m talking about from a strip club to playing poker, she would be there. The girl could even throw a football."
"That relationship wasn’t real... The world just saw the bright lights and the camera. But I knew what was really going on. He was still in love with me... He was calling fifty, sixty times a day. Sometimes I wouldn’t even talk to him because I was so angry. I couldn’t be ‘nice Kim.’ I had to be, you know, that bitch. Like, this is not going down.”
"I told him someone’s got to go, and it isn’t going to be me and these kids."
"There was no other way. You think he would have let me walk out the door? He wouldn’t have wanted me to go. 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," she said.
"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 so wack I can’t even respect you right now.’ And for me, once the respect is gone, I’m not even listening to you,” Porter explained.
"Sean and I have this bond, this friendship. It’s not about ‘if you’re faithful to me, if I’m being faithful to you.’ We’re friends. I’m the person he can tell his inner most thoughts to and he’s that person for me. He still calls me everyday and we talk. There’s no ill feeling or ‘I can’t stand you, I hate you, don’t call.’ There’s none of that. We have three children together so that’s just not an option. We’re committed to our children even if we couldn’t commit to each other."
