"I know we all go through grief and stuff like that in this life, you know, stay connected to God and he'll bring you out. This is not—we don't control this. But I miss Kim so much and I just want to say thank you to Kim", continued the rapper.

Kim and Diddy had an on-off relationship for 13 years before splitting in 2007.

They shared four children together, and remained close despite their split, until Kim's unexpected passing in November 2018.

He dedicated his rendition of 'I'll Be Missing You' with Faith Evans to Porter.

"Baby girl, this is for you," he said, "I miss you so much, baby."
