Though his hip-hop mogul father, Sean “Diddy” Combs, was arrested on suspicion of three counts assault with a deadly weapon, plus a count each of assault and battery and making terrorist threats, UCLA Bruins junior defensive back Justin Combs has come out in full support of him.
On his Instagram, Combs posted a picture of himself and his father in full support of his family.
Combs’ post comes on the heels of an altercation from yesterday, when his father allegedly threw a weight-room kettlebell at strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi. Apparently, Diddy took exception to how Alosi was treating his son.
Speaking to ESPN, he insisted that he acted in self defense.
Just the same, despite the circumstances and likely negative effect they are having on his image, it’s great to see Justin Combs coming out in full support of his father.
Regardless of what did happen in that weight room, family comes first and Combs is going to stand behind his dad, even if the full details are not available yet.
Of course, Campus Sports will update this story as more information is unveiled as the investigation proceeds.
