Eventually, Porter had enough of the relationship and left him for good in 2007. Though not together as a couple, P Diddy and Kimberly Porter remained close and raised their children together until she was found dead in her Los Angeles home in 2018. Her last words to Diddy were ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’
In an interview on Wendy Williams Show, Puff Diddy revealed that all his exes are his friends and that he met all three of his baby mamas within the same space of time.
Speaking on his never-married status, the rapper said he is not being a playboy but only being careful not to get into a commitment he isn’t ready to keep.
He was in a relationship with Cassie (Casandra Ventura). The couple has been in an on and off relationship since 2007 but it ended in 2018. Their relationship was initially work-related before they moved it a step further into something romantic. At first, they kept it low until 2012 when P Diddy made it public.
Quincy Brown (Son)
His oldest son is Quincy Brown, a son he adopted and raised with his late partner Kimberly Porter. Quincy was born during Porter’s relationship with the singer, songwriter and record producer Al B. Sure!.

He has also released a song tittled “Friends First”.
For his sixteenth birthday, Diddy got Quincy two cars and threw a star-studded party to commemorate it.

He plays the quarterback position with titles like All-League, All-City, All-State, and All-American Performer gathered in his high school days.
King Combs (Son)
Real name Christian Combs, King is the first child born between Diddy and Porter. Born in 1998 in a family considered as music royalty, King grew up surrounded by entertainers and it has seemingly rubbed off on him. So far, he has tried modeling, singing, and of course rapping.
He dropped his first single “Type Different” in 2017 and has worked with A-list artists like Chris Brown, Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign.
