Today is the day Kim Porter will be laid to rest. The mother of four’s home going service will be in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia at Cascade Hills Church, TMZ reports. The late model will then be buried at the Evergreen Memorial Garden next to her mother, Sarah Lee Porter, who passed away in 2014.
T. D Jakes will be officiating the service, The Christian Post reports. Between 1,200 to 1,500 are expected to be in attendance. Faith Evans will be singing a selection during the service as well.
Diddy is expected to give the eulogy at Porter’s funeral today but according to sources, he may be in too much of a fragile state to do it. Porter and the Bad Boy mogul were together on and off for 13 years and have three children together, 21-year-old Christian and 11- year-old twins D’ Lila Star and Jessie James. Porter’s first son, Quincy, was fathered by singer Al. B Sure but Diddy also claims him as his own.
Puff’s been posting about the late beauty all week via social media on the days leading up to her funeral.
“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 S–T!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love,” he wrote on Instagram.
Her children are also taking this loss hard. Her oldest son Quincy said he feels broken.
Porter died Nov. 15th, a month before her birthday, after battling pneumonia.
