ESSENCE Releases Exclusive Audio Featuring Sean “Diddy” Combs and His Friend dream hampton from Its May Issue Cover Story

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ESSENCE
releases exclusive audio featuring media mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs
from its recent ESSENCE May issue cover story interview with his friend
and writer dream hampton.

During the raw and unedited conversation, an emotional Combs breaks down
in tears as he shares his thoughts with hampton on the untimely passing
of his soulmate Kim Porter—and how their family will be affected this
Mother’s Day Weekend. During their conversation, a clearly shaken Combs
shares with her: “…This Mother’s Day is going to hurt. We’re definitely
going to celebrate all the mothers…but honestly anybody that’s lost a
mother, lost a soulmate, it takes time. They say time heals all wounds
when it comes to your mother…but I don’t think that’s the case…”

ESSENCE Chief Content & Creative Officer MoAna Luu states: “Diddy hadn’t
planned to be this emotionally vulnerable, but he felt that this piece’s
potential impact on culture—and anyone who has gone through or is
experiencing a similar situation—weighed more heavily than his personal
fears. So, he ultimately agreed to it.”

The full conversation between Combs and hampton will also be featured on ESSENCE’s
Yes! Girl podcast
, available for streaming and download on iTunes,
Spotify
and Google.
