Diddy Attends Son’s First UCLA Football Game; Explains Importance of Fatherhood


(AllHipHop News) Sean “Diddy” Combs was one of the 71,530 spectators who showed up for the Rose Bowl on Saturday (September 8), which featured the UCLA Bruins vs The Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Diddy was there to root on his son Justin Combs, who received a full football scholarship to UCLA.

On Sunday, Justin made his debut as a linebacker for the Bruins, who upset Nebraska in a 36-30 victory.

Diddy was overcome with emotion, as he watched the game with Justin’s mother, celebrity stylist Misa-Hylton Brim.

“We’re here and this feeling that you feel of your child accomplishing something that they worked hard for, that you instill in them as parents, can’t be expressed in words,” Diddy said as he cheered the team.

Diddy and Justin Combs initially received some flack for accepting the full scholarship to UCLA, since Diddy’s worth almost a half-a-billion dollars. Critics claimed that money could have went to a student who couldn’t afford to pay the tuition.

But the mogul defend his son and said that he earned the right to accept the scholarship to UCLA.

“I didn’t even know he was doing it. I didn’t know he was doing it until I started seeing letters, he did it on his own. I didn’t make one call from my son,” Diddy said.

Because it’s his first year with the team, Justin Combs did not see any playing action during the game, even though he was suited up on the field.

“He’s learning the system but he gets to put on his uniform in case of an emergency,” Diddy said.

      do not agree! He deserved that sh!t…. i believe the kid did it on his own and did get his father involved in this…
      It would definitely be cool if as a symbol he awards a scolarship to somebody else, but as far as his son, he defnitely deserves that scolarship that he earned regardless of being diddy’s or romney’s son…
