Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a player on the university’s football team. According to reports, Diddy confronted the team’s conditioning coach Sal Alosi about being too aggressive with Justin during practice. The situation allegedly led to Diddy swinging a kettlebell at Alosi.

A representative for Diddy released a statement to Revolt, the cable network owned by Combs. It reads as follows:

The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.

Combs is currently out on $50,000 bond. The founder of Bad Boy Records also added an Instagram post this evening that simply featured the phrase “make today amazing.” The IG picture did not include a caption.
