Diddy shared a video of speech where he thanked the late Andre Harrell for believing in him and called him his “father for the last 30 years.”

Diddy wrote these emotional words in the caption for this video where he got a chance to thank the late Andre Harrell for all of the things he did for him over the years:

“I honestly still can’t believe it

I’ve got to give myself the reality of this in doses. Because I can’t even handle this. I hope to God that you are all blessed to have someone in your life that loves you and believes in you like this man believed in me.… I’m going to miss him so much. I can’t even imagine life without Dre. God bless @gianni, @onealmcknight and the rest of the family.

LOVE YOU FOREVER @andreharrell !!!!!!!!!!”

Mary J. Blige shared old interview footage of her and Andre Harrell and a message about what Andre meant to her on Instagram:

“I don’t know where I would be  if you didn’t believe in me. RIP @andreharrell … This can’t be real. Thank you for helping me and loving me until the last days of your life. Rest easy my musical father. I will continue to do my very best to make you proud and continue to find joy and inspiration in your life and legacy. Another angel watching over me.”
