Kim Porter and Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs attend the 77th Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 27, 2005 in Los Angeles. 

The outpouring of heartfelt support in the hip-hop community following the loss of Kim Porter last Thursday (Nov. 15) has been a beautiful thing. Three days later, Diddy shared a clip commemorating the life of the mother to three of his children and TMZ is reporting that Puff also hosted a private memorial surrounded by friends and family at his Bel-Air mansion on Sunday (Nov. 18). 

Many of Diddy's loved ones made their way to his home in support of the Bad Boy Entertainment CEO and his grieving family. Famous guests in attendance reportedly included Pharrell, French Montana, and Mary J. Blige, who were greeted with elegant portraits of Porter displayed across the Diddy's home as well as a candlelit entryway. 

"For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship," the 49-year-old hip-hop mogul wrote to Twitter. "We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love."

The reason for Porter's death is still unknown at this time. Billboard has reached out to Diddy's reps for comment.
