Sean Combs Rep: Attack Was In 'Self-Defense'
June 24, 2015 at 2:09 PM (PT)
A representative for SEAN COMBS issued a statement that the rap mogul was acting in “self-defense” during his alleged altercation with a UCLA conditioning coach (NET NEWS 6/22).
“The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,” COMBS ENTERPRISES spokeswoman NATHALIE MOAR said. “What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. COMBS were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”
One of the world's richest hip-hop moguls was arrested on MONDAY by UCLA police after allegedly swinging a kettlebell at SAL ALOSI, whose previous coaching stints include a stop at the NEW YORK JETS, where he was fired for sticking his foot out and tripping a runner during a game. ESPN reported that the incident was caught by security cameras, though video footage has not been publicly released.
COMBS' son JUSTIN is a redshirt junior for the BRUINS, with the NEW YORK POST reporting the only reason he was on the team was because of his dad, who was released from UCLA police custody MONDAY night.
“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” UCLA coach JIM MORA said in a statement issued through the school. “This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”
