P. Diddy's Reps Claiming Self-Defense After Arrest At UCLA

Just a day after rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs was arrested and later released following a fight with UCLA's strength and conditioning coach, representatives for Combs are now claiming the rapper was acting in self defense. 

Combs' son, Justin Combs, is a redshirt junior defensive back for the Bruins. He played in just four games during the entire 2014-15 season, recording one solo tackle. 

A representative for Combs released a statement to the Associated Press: 

“The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,” Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs Enterprises, said in a statement to The Associated Press. “What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son.”

It's still not clear what sparked this confrontation inside UCLA's weight room, but there has been plenty of speculation.
