Kimora Lee Simmons, 43, is mourning the death of her very good friend, Kim Porter, who was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Thursday, November 15. In an emotional note, Simmons revealed that she rushed to Porter’s home on the day she died. “At your homegoing celebration today it became all too real that you are not coming back. I cannot stop crying but I will be strong for you. Gone WAY too soon. Wtf. I am in shock,” she wrote in a lengthy caption, accompanied by a collage of old photos. “To my beautiful friend and sister, I love you. This is unbelievable. When I first heard the news, I was angry that someone would play such a stupid ass joke.”
Simmons continued: “They said you were in your room sleeping. Aoki and I rushed to your house to tell you to ‘get up and come your ass outside!’ But soon as i arrived I realized you would not come. Every room I walk into now I think, “ok, I will just go and get Kim.” But I see that I cannot. This is all too close and too sad.”
“Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD! You are a girls girl which is why we’ve stayed close always. We are so alike in so many ways, we shared clothes, food, attitudes, friends, enemies, the greatest happinesses and the worst sadnesses. We’ve been married, given birth, raised families, gotten divorced, experienced death and everything in between-together. You are a great mama. Between us we have 8 kids who are all cousins. We are, and will always be-a family. I will look after yours and you will look after and guide us all.”
“What a beautiful, loving, sassy soul to have lost. We love you forever. May God bless your journey. We will never stop crying for you,” Simmons concluded.
Simmons was photographed crying outside Kim’s home on the day of her death. and the pictures are crushing. In one particular photo, she was seen standing with her hand over her mouth, attempting to hold back tears.

I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship,” he wrote in the caption of a throwback video of the two. “We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SH-T!! And I miss you so much,” Diddy concluded.
