In an interview with Vanity Fair, the man who added "Love" to his name talked about a wide range of topics, including the loss of the mother of three of his children, Kim Porter, in 2018 at the age of 47.

The hip-hop mogul has never married, and he and Porter were off and on for years. He describes her as the love of his life.

"It is clear that if any woman was going to tie the renowned playboy down, it would have been Porter," notes Vanity Fair writer Tressie McMillan Cottom.

Combs "had to start to deal with it when I lost Kim," he's quoted as saying. "'Cause I was like, man, you had it. I'm not saying I would do any of it differently. God willing -- I would have had more time.

"I look at my life as I got a second chance. I'm on my second mountain," he added, according to Vanity Fair.

Combs also touched on another former love: Jennifer Lopez, whom he dated from 1999 to 2001.

Asked about his May social media post of a throwback photo of himself with Lopez -- just as the world was learning she'd rekindled a relationship with actor Ben Affleck -- Combs said: "It wasn't no trolling involved, that's just my friend. And I don't have nothing to say about her relationship or her life."

Diddy Finally Addresses That Jennifer Lopez Throwback Photo

Yahoo Entertainment 04 August, 2021 - 12:20pm

He also noted that fans should not be expecting a rekindling of the infamous Diddy-J.Lo romance (circa 1999 to 2001) by any means. "It wasn't no trolling involved," Diddy clarified to Vanity Fair. "That's just my friend. And I don't have nothing to say about her relationship or her life." 

In fact, Diddy's outlook on both love and life changed after the 2018 untimely passing of ex and mother of three of his kids, Kim Porter.

In the interview, Diddy explained that if he were to ever get married, it would've been to the late model.

"And so, you know, I had to start to deal with it when I lost Kim," he told the outlet. "'Cause I was like, man, you had it. I'm not saying I would do any of it differently. God willing—I would have had more time. I look at my life as, ‘I got a second chance.' I'm on my second mountain."

As he moves forward in life, the path up to his "second mountain" involves him being in a better space now more than ever.

"I am the happiest I've ever been in life," he shared. "I laugh the most, I smile the most, I breathe the most."

Diddy says there was 'no trolling involved' with that Jennifer Lopez throwback pic

Yahoo Entertainment 04 August, 2021 - 12:20pm

The hip hop mogul made headlines in May when he shared a picture of himself and J.Lo from when they dated two decades ago. The Instagram post just happened to drop as the singer's rekindled romance with Ben Affleck was everywhere in the press. But according to Diddy, who now goes by Love, it was all love, no shade.

"It wasn't no trolling involved, that's just my friend," the 51-year-old said in a new interview with Vanity Fair

Lopez and Diddy dated pre-Affleck, from 1999 to 2001. The photo in question, which has since been removed, was from 2000 and showed the rapper — in a Sean Jean sweatsuit, of course — holding J.Lo's hand. He simply captioned it, "#tbt." Diddy told Vanity Fair the throwback post was just from a great time in his life. Although Diddy noted he and Lopez are friends, he has no interest in discussing Bennifer 2.0.

"And I don't have nothing to say about her relationship or her life," he added. 

It's a different ex who Diddy believes is the love of his life. The entrepreneur made clear if anyone were able to tie him down, it would have been Kim Porter, mother of three of his six children. The model died suddenly in 2018 from lobar pneumonia. 

"And so, you know, I had to start to deal with it when I lost Kim. 'Cause I was like, man, you had it. I'm not saying I would do any of it differently. God willing — I would have had more time," he told the magazine, adding, "I look at my life as I got a second chance. I'm on my second mountain." 

Losing Porter made Diddy reevaluate his life's work, bringing him closer to God.

"It clicked in and went from me to we, that [I] was sent here not to just do those things that are kind of rooted in personal success but to be able to transfer to we, and do things that are real change and communal success," he explained. "I feel like God sent me, God, put on my heart, 'What's your purpose?' I was looking at all these things, it's preachers and just different people talking about purpose because I was like, man, purpose is something deep. Have I really found my purpose? I know I'm making money and I'm successful and I’m changing the game so called, but is that my purpose? And then I really prayed on it and God told me, 'Your purpose is to play a part in saving the Black race.'"

Despite recent personal losses, Diddy, who announced his plans to launch an all R&B label, added he's "the happiest I've ever been in my life."

"I laugh the most, I smile the most, I breathe the most," he concluded. 

"I’m so grateful for all the love you guys are sending me," the star of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List wrote one day after surgery.

Diddy Reacts to Ex Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Relationship After Sharing Throwback Photo

inTouch Weekly 04 August, 2021 - 12:20pm

Jealous? Diddy reacted to ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez‘s romance with Ben Affleck.

“I don’t have nothing to say about her relationship or her life,” the rapper, 51, told Vanity Fair in his new September cover story.

As for why he shared a throwback photo with the “On the Floor” singer, 52, he said there wasn’t any “trolling involved” and insisted “that’s just my friend.”

The Ciroc owner, whose real name is Sean John Combs, acknowledged that the only woman who could have ever made him transform from bachelor to married man would’ve been the late Kim Porter, the mother of three of his six children.

“And so, you know, I had to start to deal with it when I lost Kim. ‘Cause I was like, man, you had it,” he told the magazine of her 2018 death. “I’m not saying I would do any of it differently. God willing — I would have had more time.”

“I look at my life as I got a second chance. I’m on my second mountain.”

Ben, 48, and Jen recently returned home from their PDA-packed tour of Europe to celebrate the singer’s birthday.

The pair “looked totally loved up” while celebrating her special day a source exclusively told In Touch.

“Ben and Jen were at L’Opera in Saint-Tropez,” the insider shared about their outing together on July 24. “A bottle of Cristal with sparklers arrived at their table! Jen was drinking champagne and wine. I didn’t see Ben drinking,” the source added of the sober actor. “They’re so adorable together! It wasn’t just the two of them. They were sitting at a big table with friends. Everyone appeared to be having a fun night!”

Jen — who shares twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony — and Ben — who shares kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — have even gone on blended family outings.

Most recently, the couple were spotted house-hunting with Max and Emme and shopping with Emme and Sam.

Although the 13 Going on 30 actress was initially hesitant to let her children meet J. Lo, she later had a change of heart.

“It was Ben’s idea to be open and just let it flow,” a separate source told In Touch of the coparents. “Jen likes control, she thought that was a bit too loose, but now, looking back, Jen says it was a great decision. You can’t hide who your ex is dating. Especially if you’re in the business. And Jen has nothing against J. Lo.”

Diddy Just Responded to Claims He Shaded Ex J-Lo & Her New Relationship With Ben

Yahoo Lifestyle 04 August, 2021 - 12:20pm

In an interview with Vanity Fair on Tuesday, August 3, Diddy responded to assumptions he shaded J-Lo after her reunion with Ben. Diddy made headlines in May after he posted an Instagram photo of him and J-Lo, whom he dated from 1999 to 2001, amid reports that she was back together with Ben. “It wasn’t no trolling involved, that’s just my friend,” Diddy told Vanity Fair.

At the time, Diddy, who split from his longterm girlfriend Cassie in 2018, was accused of trying to take J-Lo from Ben. “Go get your girl Brother Love!!!!!!” DJ Holiday commented on Diddy’s Instagram at the time. “She yours.” Another user wrote, “Bye Ben.” One more commented, “Stirring the pot we see!” while another wrote, “Oh this is messy.” Diddy’s own son, Christian Combs, called him a “killah” in the comments, and singer Keyshia Cole joked, “Tell ha, come on home baby,” with a crying laughing emoji

As for his reaction to Bennifer’s reunion, Diddy told Vanity Fair that he has “nothing to say” about his ex and her renewed relationship. “And I don’t have nothing to say about her relationship or her life,” he said.

Ben and J-Lo dated right after her split from Diddy. The couple, who got engaged in 2002, dated from 2001 to 2004. They got back together in 2021 after J-Lo’s split from fiance Alex Rodriguez. A source told Page Six in June that J-Lo and Ben were on “different paths” when they first dated but always had feelings for each other. “Jennifer was ready to settle down and have kids, but Ben wasn’t keen on giving up his bachelor lifestyle just yet. In the end, she got tired of waiting for him to come around — even though it broke her heart to end things,” the insider said.

The source continued, “Jennifer always saw Ben as the one that got away. She was crushed after they broke up, though she felt at the time that she had no other choice but to call off their engagement.” In her 2014 memoir, True Love, J-Lo referred to her breakup with Ben as her “first real heartbreak.” Ben and I split up at the moment when I thought we were committing to each other forever,” she wrote. “It was my first real heartbreak, it felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.”

The 2014 memoir covers the “Jenny on the Block” singer’s career and personal life, from her start as a dancer to when she became a mom of two twins with her now-ex-husband Marc Anthony. In the book, which includes more than 200 personal photographs from J-Lo’s never-before-seen collection, the Selena actress writes about how “she confronted her greatest challenges, identified her biggest fears, and ultimately emerged a stronger person than she’s ever been” to become the pop icon we know today.

(Reuters) -Boeing Co scrubbed the launch of its CST-100 Starliner to the International Space Station on Tuesday due to a system glitch, a fresh setback for the U.S. aerospace company following the vehicle's botched 2019 debut. Boeing engineers ruled out "a number of potential causes, including software," but were still working to understand the source of "unexpected valve position indications" in the propulsion system, Boeing said in a statement Tuesday evening. "Additional time is needed to complete the assessment," Boeing said, adding that it would also not proceed with the next potential launch window on Wednesday.

The United States said on Tuesday that one of many concerns about Afghanistan is that it could spiral into civil war.
