When will the madness and drama between these two cease?!! Diddy's ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter is spilling the tea (once again) to Essence magazine, regarding their very publicized break-up just a few short months ago. Below are a couple of excerpts from Porter's interview.
By Jeannine Amber
KIM PORTER: Because there was no other way. You think he would have let me walk out the door? He wouldn't have wanted me to go.
ESSENCE: Were you scared?
KIM PORTER: No! Not at all. But I wanted to be dramatic. I wanted him to know I wasn't breaking up with him for two weeks-or maybe leaving for two days. If I pack up everything — twins and all — it means I'm out! Puffy's an action person, not a talk person. So I had to have an action. Telling him, “Babe, I'm leaving…” was not gonna do it.
ESSENCE: Did your girlfriends come over to help?
KIM PORTER: I did have my little party-packing crew, yes, I did! My friends are very supportive.
ESSENCE: After our last article (“No Ordinary Love", Essence, December, 2006), some readers responded by saying Sean was disrespecting you by not getting married. They said you should be trying to get that ring on your finger.
KIM PORTER: Do you know how many rings I have? I don't even have enough fingers (laughing). That's not why I left.
ESSENCE: So if he called you today and said, “I want to get married, right now….”?
KIM PORTER: I would say “No.” And not because I don't want to get married, but because he's not ready to get married. When I get married, I want to stay married. I want both parties to be on the same page at the same time, and to leave a certain type of behavior behind. That's a commitment I don't think he's ready for.
ESSENCE: If it wasn't over the marriage, then why did you end the relationship?
KIM PORTER: I left because at this point in my life I want something different for myself. I invested ten years, I have children, and I've always stood by him. But now it's time for me and what I want to do for Kim.
ON THEIR RELATIONSHIP NOW:
ESSENCE: How have you two been getting along since you left?
KIM PORTER: You know how when two people go their separate ways, most of the time there's animosity? It's not like that with us. Sean and I have this bond, this friendship. It's not about 'if you're faithful to me, if I'm being faithful to you.' We're friends. I'm the person he can tell his inner most thoughts to and he's that person for me. He still calls me everyday and we talk. There's no ill feeling or 'I can't stand you, I hate you, don't call.' There's none of that. We have three children together so that’s just not an option. We're committed to our children even if we couldn't commit to each other.
ON SECRET BEHIND THEIR BREAKUP:
ESSENCE: Speaking of being faithful, there have been rumors about Sean and a baby in Atlanta swirling around for a while. Is this why you left the relationship?
KIM PORTER: Hmmm... Well, that definitely was part of it.
