Strangers who’d never met her found themselves dropping tears. Women who didn’t know her felt like they lost a close friend. Dads who might not have been treating their baby mothers very nice, suddenly began to show respect. Men who prided themselves on stringing their longterm lovers along like #JulezSantana and #JoeBudden suddenly dropped to one knee and proposed. It was like people across the world who had been in non-committed, unmarried relationships began to realize that they’d didn’t want to be like Sean “Diddy” Combs and Kim Porter. They didn’t want to push out babies and never marry. They wanted to either find the courage to love her or leave her alone.
Her death happened. Her funeral happened. Her birthday came and went. The twins turned twelve – even grandma #JaniceCombs celebrated her birthday – but it was like Kim Porter’s death is something we’re not supposed to talk about.
Many have noticed – and many more have begun to question – that there’s been no closure on the Kim Porter case – despite her death on November 15, 2018. It’s virtually been swept under the rug.
Major media companies like CNN, TMZ, TheShadeRoom, Perez Hilton, Revolt TV, TV One, BET and others have all seemingly decided to forget that it happened. No one requested the 9-1-1 tape from her house, although TMZ reported that they had heard it. Not one media outlet seems to really care what happened to her. They seem to be saying, “Diddy said she died of cardiac arrest and pneumonia so that’s what she died of.”
The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office could NEITHER confirm NOR deny that she died of either cardiac arrest or pneumonia, which is VERY IMPORTANT because either of the two causes of death is not a complicated process for the coroner’s office to discover. In fact, as of December 19, 2018 – some five weeks after the very popular celebrity death – the coroner’s office issued a letter to Black Press Radio saying they were still uncertain what caused her death and that they didn’t expect the toxicology reports to be there before six to eight weeks after they were ordered. After what most considered a ridiculous amount of time, the autopsy report said she died of pneumonia, but few believe it.
By our calculations and their confirmation, the coroner’s office conducted the autopsy on Kim Porter on November 16, 2018. Toxicology report requests were sent off that day. Six weeks would be the earliest they might know, so that would be the week of Christmas 2018. If they needed 8 weeks, that would be January 16, 2019. But there seems to be absolutely NO URGENCY with this case, which is incredibly odd. January 16, 2019 came and went without the release of the report. We pressed on, never stopped requesting until finally one day we were sent a REDACTED, INCOMPLETE report that included sections 1 and 12 but not 2-11.
The case always seemed to center on Diddy but it’s been really hard for the world to get any information her dad, her grandmother, her aunts or anyone in her family – other than Diddy. She loved him so hard but in the end she didn’t get it back. Less than 24 hours after her death, “Diddy” was back with ex-girlfriend Cassie. It’s just one of the shocking things about this story. Most importantly, no one felt that Kim Porter’s story – aside from whom she children with – was ever told.
Diddy began a merry go round of dating while Al B. Sure held a virtual online tribute to Kim Porter that touched so many people’s hearts. Suddenly, the story began shaping up on Instagram to be very different than what Diddy had originally led people to believe. The children have spoken little about her, posted even less by way of tributes to their mother – sometime that many felt was also odd. A daddy/daughter video posted to his Instagram page caught Diddy talking with Kim’s twins about Father’s Day and why were seemed to be less enthusiasm than on Mother’s Day. The twins quickly got their dad together reminding him without hesitation that – at least for them – their mother played a bigger role in their lives and therefore deserved more fuss.
As we’ve witnessed little glimpses of their lives without their mother, the twins are morphing into beautiful clones of their mother. Their likeness cannot be denied and is extremely undeniable.
But the question still lingers: Who was Kim Porter? What was HER story? We hope to answer those questions in the biopic.
