“For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t,” Diddy wrote in an Instagram post Sunday, according to Vibe. “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. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER (expletive)!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.”
