Did Lord Krishna take the form of Bhagavata Purana?

Jai Sri Krishna,

Please accept my greetings.

I have a question regarding the greatness of Srimad Bhagavatam. I heard from one of my friend who said "Before Krishna was about to depart the world, Uddhava requested Krishna to stay back as he knew with Kaliyuga's arrival and Krishna's departure, world would become as bad as hell. Then Krishna consoled Uddhava stating He would stay with the people as Bhagavata Purana. Hence if one reads, listens, discourses Bhagavatam, then s/he is enjoying the presence of Lord Himself. Saying so, He got dissolved into Bhagavatam."

Now I want to know is the above info true? If yes, is there any scriptural reference for the same?

Regards,
Ratnadeep.
