P. Diddy admits the mothers of his children “deserved” to have married him.
The rap mogul – who raises six kids with three women – never expected to have such a complicated personal life but is always willing to take his fatherhood responsibilities seriously.
Explaining his “movie-like” situation, the hip-hop star admitted he had met each of the women, Kim Porter, Misa Hylton-Brim and Sarah Chapman at around the same period in his life but insisted he didn’t date them all at once.
He continued: “At different times in my life, as my heart got broken by one, I cried on the shoulder of another .
“It wasn’t at the same time. Life isn’t something you can predict. Every woman that I was with, that I had a child with, they did deserve for me to marry them. But there’s things going on in my life … I’m not gonna say it’s all the way me, but I’ll take responsibility as a man.
“What if my twins ask why I ain’t married to their mom? Damn, how do I respond?”
Diddy – who has 17-year-old Justin with Misa, Christian, 12, and four-year-old twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James with Kim, is stepfather to her eldest son Quincy, 19, and has four-year-old son Chance with Sarah – is unsure why he has never married but believes the death of his father when he was young is a big factor.
He explained on TV talk show ‘The View’: “The reason of it, why I’m not married yet, I don’t have the exact reason. Some things in life, you don’t have the exact reason why you’re not. I know that I haven’t been ready; I know there’s other reasons in my life.
“My father was killed when I was three years old, and my mother was a very strong woman and she said, ‘Well I loved your father and I’m not gonna have another man around. There’s not gonna be anyone else around, and that’s how it’s gonna be.’ But then on the flip side, I never got a chance to see the way a family lives.”
