Diddy has been regularly utilizing social media over the past eight months. It seems his activity perked up following the November death of Kim Porter, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his children. With the exception of one brief break following her passing, he hasn’t shied away from posting.
But perhaps all of the public attention has lost its allure. On Monday (May 13) — just one day after Mother’s Day — the Hip Hop mogul announced he’s once again taking a social media hiatus.
“BACK OFF THE GRID,” he posted via Instagram. It was coupled with a black heart in the caption.
Since Porter’s passing, Diddy has shared several tribute videos and photos honoring her memory. Throughout his grieving process, he’s also expressed a healthy amount of regret.
In fact, the Bad Boy icon embraced criticism on one of his Instagram posts that found many of his followers blasting him for never marrying Porter. He ultimately admitted it was a mistake.
Most recently, he shared a photo of himself hugging her with the caption, “I FUCKIN MISS YOU SO MUCH. Happy mother’s DAY.”
As history has shown us, Diddy’s social media break likely isn’t permanent. In the interim, revisit a couple of his Porter tributes below.
