DIDDY'S SON JUSTIN GETS A SCHOLARSHIP TO UCLA
DIDDY'S son JUSTIN COMBS has received a scholarship to play football for UCLA. And that's got some people upset, because he obviously doesn't NEED it. Diddy has made an estimated $45 MILLION over the past year alone, according to Forbes.com. As one UCLA student put it, quote, "UCLA's athletic department needs to consider the fact that perhaps there is another athlete on the football team, who could perhaps really use this scholarship." The school defended its decision saying . . . quote, "Unlike need-based scholarships, athletic scholarships are awarded to students strictly on the basis of their athletic and academic ability, and not on a student’s financial need. "Athletic scholarships, such as those awarded to football or basketball players, do not rely on state funds."
Tyler Perry is responding to reports that Bobbi Kristina stormed off the set of his "Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse" TBS show by saying that it never happened.
In fact he says the show wrapped production a long time ago. He went on facebook and told his Facebook fans today,
"I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of "For Better Or Worse". NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season. After Whitney's funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into "For Better Or Worse". I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother's death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the acting or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it's going to hit you or how it's going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you're smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can't stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.
