Diddy's Stepson


His Football Scholarship

6/12/2012 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It doesn't matter that his father is ULTRA-RICH, Diddy's son Justin Combs deserves his football scholarship to UCLA and shouldn't feel bad about taking the money ... so says Justin's brother.

TMZ spoke with Quincy Jones Brown -- Diddy's informal stepson from on-again, off-again GF Kim Porter and asked about the controversy surrounding Justin. Should his family's enormous wealth disqualify Combs from scholarship contention?

Brown explained ... it's not about the money, it's about the prestige ... and Justin has EARNED the prestige of being a scholarship athlete.

"He deserves a scholarship," Quincy explained ... adding, "He is a true talented athlete."

Even if he doesn't accept it that doesn't mean its going to someone who's poor or needy, it will still sit there for the next best athlete. Don't blame him for accepting it blame UCLA for giving the money to whom they want to have it. There are need based scholarships and grants for less fortunate kids so he isn't taking money from anyone else's pockets. He could not accept it and the next athlete to get it could be just as rich. I'm sure he's not the first financially well-off kid to get a scholarship.

I AGREE with Quincy 100000%.
Justin earned his scholarship fair and square. Anyone had the opportunity to get that scholarship but he got it. Why? Because of his hard work and dedication. And it really makes me mad when I hear people say Justin need to give his scholarship back. If people think that he need to give it back they would have never gave it to him in the first place. And the only reason yall are saying he needs to give it back is because of his dad. Justin is his own person. Him and his dad are two completely DIFFERENT. P. Diddy is not going to let Justin live off of him for the rest of his life. His father money has nothing to do with his playing ability, if i can recall these colleges has way more money than his father so if they are recruiting him obviously they want him as a student athlete. No body is not feeling sorry for no one it's called grind mode and Justin Combs put in work.
I remember nights when I would be on twitter and Justin would tweet about workout or what not. I mean this is like EXTREMELY early in the morning. Justin has been to the All American Army Combine and many more other events (can't think of them off the top of my head) because of his athletic ability.
And I'm getting tired of saying P. DIDDY SON JUSTIN COMBS. Can yall just say Justin Combs for crying out loud.Justin even said himself that her doesn't want to be known as 'P. Diddy son' just Justin Combs. And by yall blowing this scholarship thing WAY out of proportion he's never going to have the opportunity to do that.
But anyways CONGRATS Justin, you deserved.

Is this same kid that diddy spend so much cash on for his sweet 16. But he can't afford to send his kid to college. just sad the rich are always asking for hand outs and they get it and the rest better work 10 times harder to get their kids to school

Justin earned the scholarship, that is true. No one can change that honor. However, I am reminded of when Stan Musial's son won a scholarship and Stan told the school to give it to someone else. Stan then paid for his son's tuition.
Diddy also has the means. Look at the athletes who win cars at certain sporting events. These guys donate the car each and every time. They still get the glory (like Justin has) but he certainly doesn't need it.
