Music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs displayed his immense heartbreak as former model Kim Porter’s funeral took on Saturday in Georgia, with her gold casket the center of attention and a fireworks display as a befitting send off.
The 49-year-old was pictured mourning as the events moved on from the church to the burial ceremony in Colombus and at several points he had to take time out alone to gather his thoughts.
In one image, Combs clutched a glossy booklet and sat by the gravestone of Porter’s mother Sarah Lee Porter, who passed away in 2014, wearing a somber expression on his face amid the proceedings.
The mother of his children was being buried near her parent as guests – including many celebrities – said farewell.
In an Instagram post shortly afterward he called Porter ‘the truest definition of a mother’.
Singer Usher Raymond appeared dressed in green and gave Diddy a hug as they stood near where Porter was to be buried.
The eulogy was read by Noel Jones while Bishop Marvin Winans and Mario Winans paid musical tribute.
Others who gave reflections at the Cascades Hills Church in Columbus included Mary J. Blige, Dallas Austin, Ebony Electra, Marvett Britto, Diddy, and Porter’s son, actor-and-singer Quincy Brown.
Quincy broke down as he spoke and was joined at the mic by his father, Al B. Sure!, and Diddy.
Diddy’s son Christian ‘King’ Combs – who has followed in his mother’s footsteps by becoming a model – was present.
The service was packed with celebrities like best friend Kimora Lee Simmons, Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, Tichina Arnold, NeNe Leakes, Fat Joe, Kandi Burress, Winnie Harlow, Ryan Destiny, Stevie J and more.
