I think we can all agree that when it comes to Diddy, not only is he about his bread, but he’s also definitely about the ladies. But in the last few years, it seems that Sean Combs has decided to slow himself down. The mogul and father of five (six if you include him being the informal stepfather of Kim Porter’s son, Quincy) has been in a relationship with Cassie for the last couple of years. While they haven’t been as open about their relationship as he has been in the past (remember when Diddy and Kim Porter were on the cover of Essence?), they definitely have the lovey-dovey social media message thing on lock. She’s sent him more than a few Instagram posts professing her love, but is Diddy ready to take the next big step with her (or any other woman)? He told the ladies of The View (Barbara Walters specifically) that he’s not…
“It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day just be ready for that.
The thing is, I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves. I’m brutally honest with myself. If I’m ready for that responsibility, I think in due time…I don’t want to get married and not make that woman be the best. I’m a big baby in a grown man’s body. I’ve been close to it and when I’m ready I’ll make the announcement, but when I do it, I’m doing it forever. Know that.
One think I want to add to that is, I think a lot of people put too much on marriage and not enough on happiness. I’m happy, anybody that is in my life is happy…at least some of the days [laughs]. I just want to be happy and I think it’s important for you to protect your happiness and to love yourself, because then you can love other people the right way.”
He definitely makes some deep statements, especially the part about loving yourself first. But I do hope that Cassie is aware that she shouldn’t be expecting too much too soon from her man. He’s not sure if he’s ready for all the responsibilities that come with the title of husband (sounds similar to what Oprah said about marriage), and we can respect that. At least he’s honest. Check out his answer to the question by watching the clip of that episode over at the show’s website. The conversation about marriage occurs at the 19:00 mark.
