RecentlyÂ Â DiddyÂ andÂ Misa Hylton‘sÂ 18-year-old son,Â Justin Combs, was awarded a full athletic scholarship to play football atÂ UCLA this fall. Â A while later on CNN, a reporter asked if the Bad Boy prince should return his $54,000 college scholarship. See what happens below…
UCLA spokesmanÂ Ricardo Vazquez, jumped in to defended the university for granting Justin with the scholarship. Â He explained that
There is a big separation between financial aid based on need and how thatâ€™s funded and how athletic scholarships are funded and awarded to studentsâ€¦Unlike need-based scholarships, athletic scholarships are awarded to students strictly on the basis of their athletic and academic ability, and not on a studentâ€™s financial needâ€¦â€
Justin is a pretty smart guy though. He graduated from high school with a 3.75 GPA and was a great football player. Â Yeah, his Diddy has money, but Justin has skills!
Diddy recently topped the Forbes list of Wealthiest Hip Hop Artist raking in Â $550 million last year. Â What would you say? Â Should Diddy’s son Justin return the scholarship or give it to someone who is less fortunate?
