Sean “Diddy” Combs is remembering Kim Porter on her birthday.

On Friday (Dec. 15), the rapper and Bad Boy Records founder took to social media to pay tribute to his late ex-girlfriend on what would’ve been her 53rd birthday.

“We miss you so much Kim! Happy Birthday Beautiful! Love forever,” Combs, 54, wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of him kissing Porter.

Diddy — who is currently facing multiple sexual assault claims — also shared numerous snapshots with Porter on his Instagram Story, including an image of the pair walking together on the beach.

Diddy and Porter first began dating in 1994 and eventually broke things off in 2007 after roughly 13 years. They shared three children: son Christian, 25, and twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jessie James, 16.

Porter died in November 2018 in her Los Angeles home at the age of 47. The cause of her death was ruled as lobar pneumonia, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

The music mogul’s post arrives after his denial of four sexual assault and abuse allegations made against him in recent weeks.

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” Diddy wrote in a statement on Dec. 6. “For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.”

Diddy has been sued for sexual assault by four women, including his longtime romantic partner, R&B singer Cassie, who accused him of rape and physical abuse, among other allegations. Though that case settled the day after it was filed, Combs was subsequently sued by three more women, all Jane Does, who say the hip-hop mogul sexually assaulted them.

In the most recent case filed, the woman says she was “sex trafficked” and “gang raped” by Combs, former Bad Boy Records president Harve Pierre and another man in 2003 when she was 17. A separate case over that alleged incident was filed against Pierre and Bad Boy alleging sexual assault.
