As evidenced by the outpouring of love, Kim Porter was a friend to many and will truly be missed.
Among those affected by Kim’s sudden passing was Monyetta Shaw. The two were introduced by a mutual friend, but developed their own relationship and often traveled together. In an IG tribute, Shaw recounted the fun times she shared with Porter.

While visiting HH, Monyetta also talked about the bond she shared with Kim and how they have many things in common … mainly, co-parenting! Porter shared 3 children with music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, while Shaw shares 2 children with ex-fiancé, R&B singer Ne-Yo. Additionally, Monyetta just released a book detailing how to successfully navigate co-parenting titled, “Keep It Classy: Co-Parenting Strategies for Unstoppable Moms and Devoted Dads.” But before she was an author on the subject she was telling her ex to look at Kim and Diddy as an example. “Yo, let’s get to this point … we got this, it’s doable, it’s simple — they show love, that’s where we want to be at,” Mon told Ne-Yo.
Welp, it looks like it worked! Monyetta and Ne-Yo, along with his current wife Crystal, have been efficiently co-parenting for two years now. And if you’re looking to do the same, Shaw’s book ‘Keep it Classy’, will help!
