Kim Porter speaks out about Diddy and her new life as a single mom

Last month, Kim Porter, Diddy‘s on-and-off girlfriend of 10 years,ended her relationship with the rap mogul and moved out to Hollywood,from New York, with their kids, Christian, 9, twins D’Lila Star andJessie James, 7 months, and Quincy, 16, her son from a previousrelationship. Kim, 36, opened up to OK! about her decision to leave Diddy, 37, how it has andwill affect their children and more.

On leaving Diddy: Despite having recently welcomed twindaughters, Kim says it was not tough to break up with "Mr. Combs," asshe calls him, who she believes has been unfaithful ("I’m aware thathe’s cheated").

We may be apart, but we’ll always be together as a family.It’s not a situation where two people break up and they can’t standeach other. We’re still friends so it makes for an easy breakup.

Infidelity notwithstanding, she adds that she will always love him.

I have a history with him, and he’s the father of my children, so I will always love him. Just because I love him, that doesn’t mean that we can be together. But I’ll always have love for him.

On how the kids are adjusting: "We’ve been in different places before,so that’s nothing new to them. I’m sure, as time goes on, they willfeel the separation. But we try to do things together, to show themthat we’re still connected. We may not be together as boyfriend andgirlfriend, but we’re together as a family."

On living in California: Kim loves the "lighter" atmosphere and the breezy outdoors, as do the kids.

Theylove it. We open the door, and there’s the yard, and they jump in thepool. They’ve adjusted to the lifestyle very well. A lot of my friendsout here have children so they have their own social network.

On bi-costal parenting: "There’s going to be a lot oftraveling, but we have a lot of friends who have private planes, andthey travel to New York once a week. We’ll be pretty much bumming aride on the plane."

On the twins: "They’re very sweet, happy little girls. Jessieis feisty, always wants to play and always has a smile on her face.D’Lila’s very happy, but she’s a little more serious. You can grabJessie and throw her up in the air and she’s like, ‘Yay!’ D’Lila’slike, ‘I don’t think so.’"

On Justin, Diddy’s son from his relationship with Misa Hylton-Brim: Kim says Justin, 13, will always be a part of her family.

Youcan’t erase 10 years from your life. Our families are intertwined.We’ll have that family unit, and Justin is always welcome at my house.I love him like my own kid. 

On losing the baby weight: No workout or diet here — Kim credits her good genes for getting her pre-babies shape back.

Iwas 200 pounds when I was pregnant. I was as big as Big Momma from BigMomma’s House! I have to thank God, because I haven’t worked out orbeen on any special diet. I have one of those rubber-band bodies. I’mnaturally a healthy eater, and I think my metabolism is high. It’s inthe genes. I was blessed! 

On her future plans: In addition to developing a TV show, Kim is also working on a clothing line for kids.

Between modeling, acting, and raising four children, my hands are full. But I’m really happy.
