Diddy, appears with their 12-year-old twin daughters, D'Lila and Jessie, and his 13-year-old daughter Chance from a previous relationship on the cover of Essence's May 2019 issue.

He gave an interview to filmmaker, writer and friend Dream Hampton, who wrote that the magazine says it "made a historic—and possibly controversial—decision to put a man on the cover in celebration of Mother's Day," adding that it was also a "tribute to Kim Porter." Essence released audio from the interview on Thursday, that hears Diddy in an emotional state, discussing the woman he misses most.


“Anybody that’s lost a mother or lost a soulmate it takes time. It takes time. They say time heals all wounds when it comes to mothers…I don’t think that’s the case,” Diddy told his good friend Dream Hampton on the Yes Girl podcast. “I don’t think anyone would ever understand how hard it is to be a Black mother.”

Listen to the interview down below.

Kim Porter died of pneumonia in her Los Angeles home in November at age 47.
