Diddy’s Kid Gets a Full Scholarship to UCLA

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.  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.
