P DIDDY came to the private wake of the tragic former Kim Porter holding the hand of a friend to support him.
Porter, mother of three children of rapper Sean Combs, died last Thursday at the age of 47.
She will be buried Saturday in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia, on Saturday.
Diddy was "devastated and shocked" by the sudden death of Kim.
He made a heartbreaking tribute by saying "I do not know what I'm going to do without you".
Yesterday he arrived in the wake with a dark suit, a long dark shaded coat, holding a man's hand without a name.
He arrived in a limousine to pay his last respects.
Kim's close friend and former model Kimora Lee Simmons were also at the scene, and candles were lit on the front porch of the building.
On Saturday, an elaborate service will be held at the nearby Cascade Hills church, where singers Mary J Blige and Faith Evans are reportedly performing.
A statement issued by Diddy and Kim's family said: "God broke the mold when he made Kim, there really was not another woman like her.
"Although her time here on earth was too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning, she was a loving mother and a devoted friend."
She adds: "She was the epitome of kindness and grace, there was not a person who knew who did not touch her soul.
"Kim was the kind of woman who changed lives for the better.
"Although we have lost our best friend, God has won a special angel and we know that she is taking care of us."
The statement ends: "They will remember her and we will miss her forever." As a family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives.
The 47-year-old actress was not answered last week at her home in Los Angeles and was later pronounced dead after she allegedly suffered from the flu.
Sean "Puff Diddy" Combs and Porter had the best on-off relationship that was tumultuous to say the least.
This extended from 1994 until they separated for good in 2007, after it was learned that Diddy had become a dad for the son of another woman.
But the couple stayed close and maintained family life with their three children: Christian, twin daughters of 20 and 11 years, D & # 39; Lila Star and Jessie James.
TMZ reports that Kim had been battling an illness, either from the flu or pneumonia, in the past few days and was being treated with saline and vitamins.
A source said he had contacted his doctor yesterday complaining that he did not feel better after suffering symptoms similar to the flu.
The cops say the actress and the model did not feel well and went to bed early Wednesday night, but when the family members went to wake her up the next morning, she did not react.
Many in the hip-hop community and musicians cried and offered their condolences.
50 Cent wrote on Twitter: "R.I.P to Kim Porter, I send my condolences to your friends and family.
"She was loved and she will be missed a lot, I know that Puff is being beaten right now, he really loved her, soul mate type ***, blinking, just positive vibes."
Missy Elliott called his death "so heartbreaking", tweeting: "Lord, please, give your children and your whole family strength."
The storm force relationship of Diddy and Kim.
During one of his breakups, Porter took Diddy to court in 2002 to force him to pay more support in what appeared to be a legal fight.
But while many ex-partners would be avoided like the plague, These two could not help speaking before falling in love again.
In 2006 they proudly announced to the world in a video that twins were waiting for.
But while Porter was five months pregnant with the girls D & # 39; Lila Star and Jessie James, it emerged that Diddy had fathered a son born to an Atlanta woman named Sarah Chapman, with whom she had had an affair.
And so, not wanting to put up with her traps, she waited until he left and left, taking everything from the furniture to the cars.
And of course the children too.
But despite the dramatic departure, the bond between the two and their three children survived intact and did not harbor any bad feelings.
The family continued to celebrate Christmas and the New Year together, as well as birthdays and other events.
However, even though they stayed close, the couple would never be together again.
Porter also has a 27-year-old son who was brought up in large part with Diddy, Quincy Brown, from a previous relationship with singer Al B. Claro.
Brown, an actor, appears in the Fox series "Star" and has had several roles in television and film.
In the months and weeks that led to her death, Porter would post photos of Diddy and the family on Instagram.
The emergency teams rushed to Porter's house around noon, but the paramedics declared their death upon arrival.
No illegal drugs were found and, according to reports, authorities are investigating whether he had contracted an illness after a recent trip to Africa.
