UCLA is standing by its decision, and now, so are its students!
Despite the public outcry regarding the university's decision to grant Diddy's son Justin Combs with a $54,000 football scholarship, many of the student-athletes currently enrolled are defending him, as well, and maintain the amount of money the rapper makes is a non-issue!
Diddy's son, Justin Combs has just received a full scholarship to UCLA where he will play on the school's football team.
It's not just about sports though - Justin has the brains too. He has a 3.75 GPA and is the head of the African American Society at his school, Iona Prep.
Daddy Diddy couldn't be more proud! He announced his excitement and in a press release:
"As a parent, today is one of the proudest moments of my life. This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do and is truly passionate about. Justin is a shining example of what hard work, determination and a strong mentality can achieve. I am honored to call him my son and am happy that he is fulfilling his dream."
Those are definitely the sentiments of a proud poppa! So happy to hear how much he supports his son.
Martin Bashir did an interview with Diddy and when his children came up, Martin asked the hard questions — specifically questioning Diddy's decision to give his 16-year-old son Justin a $400,000 Maybach for his birthday.
