That's such good news!

The rapper's son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back for the school and Diddy felt that the strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi, was being too hard on his son so he confronted the coach.
This ended up leading to an altercation between the two men in which the Ciroc-lover swung a kettlebell at Alosi! Shortly after he was arrested on suspicion of three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, making criminal threats, and battery.
Since then the head coach, Jim Mora, has said he does NOT want a criminal prosecution of the 45-year-old dad, even though the case is still pending with the LA City Attorney's office.
Well now, the rapper has broken his silence regarding the altercation. On Monday, Diddy sat down with Power 105's The Breakfast Club and told them:
They may be called dumblonde, but Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex are two smart cookies!
They also explained how their band name is a blow-to-the-gut of the music industry, as a commentary on previous roles they were forced to play! Check out part 1 of our interview (above) and preorder their album HERE!
If you want more, check out part 2 (below) to hear how the girls have moved on from their DK days, and how their fans have stood by them! Also, see if they think Making The Band would have the same success on TV today:
Trouble for Fox and Lee Daniels, or just a woman looking for a payday?!
Sophia Eggleston, a 53-year-old Detroit woman, is suing the network and Daniels, the creator of Empire, for $300 million, alleging the show is based off her life story and she ought to be compensated for the portrayal of character Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson!
Eggleston's suit lays out a lot of tall tales, like how she was an alleged drug kingpin, and that she once did jail time after placing a hit on a man. She also wrote a book about her drug lifestyle as a younger woman, and in 2011, she traveled to El Lay and met with a screenwriter about adapting the book for television or a movie.
That never happened, but now Eggleston alleges that the Empire creators had their hands on the book and picked out many parts of her life story to use in the hit show.
Speaking to reporters, Eggleston seemed fairly confident about her lawsuit, saying:
A wheelchair is the last thing we want to see Diddy cruising around in!
On Thursday, the rapper had us a bit concerned when he shared a snap of himself chillin' in a wheelchair while also brandishing a pair of crutches. Considering Dids just got into a brawl with his son's UCLA football coach, we hope this isn't a fight related injury!
He must have a guardian angel looking over him!
The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office decided on Thursday that even though the 45-year-old rapper threw a kettlebell at his son Justin Combs' assistant coach, since no one was actually hurt, there would be no legal action taken.
Justin is a defensive back on the Division I team and was very vocal about supporting his father throughout the ordeal, so it should be interesting to see how he interacts with his administrators now that the case has been dropped.
Looking back on the week Diddy's had, he must have been pretty sure this whole thing was going to clear itself up, because he didn't seemed phased in the slightest during his Bad Boy tribute at the BET Awards on Sunday!
Do U think Diddy should have gotten off scot-free??
Family will always be family.
On Sunday at the BET Awards, the musician's former stepson — Quincy Brown — was asked what he thought about the performer's scuffle.
It turns out…
The 24-year-old is COMPLETELY supportive of his former stepdad.
The Dope actor exclaimed:
Star power only gets you so far!
Michael B. Jordan can act, that's for sure — but he can't overcome Los Angeles fire codes!
Diddy tried — twice — to get Jordan in, but to no avail. The club owners said no, and the fire codes won out!
The irony is, Jordan is playing the fire-controlling Human Torch in Fantastic Four!
Jordan was fine about it, which goes to show how cool he is, but it's a shame the star couldn't enjoy the bash!
