No matter what you think of P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Sean Combs, etc. you have to give him props that he’s doing something right with his family.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It was announced this morning that his son, Justin Combs, is headed to UCLA on a full football scholarship.
Justin told AccessHollywood in a statement,
“Today I am truly blessed and thankful to accept my scholarship and give my full commitment to UCLA. Playing division I football was a lifelong dream of mine, and through hard work I was able to achieve it…I am a living testament that with a strong relationship with God, family, and hard work dreams do come true.”
And how does Diddy feel about this?
“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.”
While many may think this is just another case of a superstar’s kid getting a first class ticket, keep in mind that Justin, a 5’9”, 170 pound defensive back, was also offered scholarships by the University of Illinois, the University of Virginia and the University of Wyoming, and is currently holding a 3.75 GPA at Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York.
Congrats to the little Diddy.
