While being honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs paid tribute to his late ex Kim Porter.
“Baby girl, this is for you,” Diddy said, before launching into a performance of ‘I’ll Be Missing You.’ Watch the clip below.
The 52-year-old rapper went on to give several special shout-outs to Porter, who died unexpectedly of lobar pneumonia in 2018 at age 47.
After several star-studded performances that paid homage to his career, Diddy played an old video clip of Porter telling him, “Congratulations, Puffy, you’re a star. I can’t tell you how proud I am. From Harlem to Hollywood, that’s a long journey … You work so hard, and I’ve watched you, your blood sweat and tears, and you’ve arrived.”
Sweet home videos of their children, son King, 24, and twins Jessie James and D’Lila Star, 15, were also featured in a montage.
Then, before launching into a performance of “I’ll Be Missing You” with Faith Evans and Maverick City Choir, Diddy said, “Baby girl, this is for you.” During the performance, Diddy yelled out, “I miss you so much, baby.”
The artists who paid homage to Diddy’s career were Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, The Lox and Lil’ Kim. Diddy also performed “I Need a Girl,” “Pass the Cîroc” with Busta Rhymes,” and “Gotta Move On” with Bryson Tiller.
