Diddy claims he acted in self-defense as he releases official statement

A representative for rap mogul Diddy has released an official statement on his arrest over an altercation with his son’s football coach.

According to police reports Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was involved in an incident with strength and conditioning coach

The statement, released on Tuesday, claims reports about the fight are ‘inaccurate’ and that the rapper expects the charges against him will be dropped.

‘The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,’ the statement begins.

‘What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.’

His son Justin, meanwhile, showed support for his father by posting an Instagram of the two of them with the caption: ‘I thank God for having a father that’s always there for me.. Love you pops!’

The star then reposted the same image with the caption: ‘#FAMILYFIRST.’

The incident allegedly took place at an athletic facility on the campus of UCLA where his son Justin Combs attends and plays football.

The 45-year-old rapper was taken into custody at the campus jail on Monday afternoon, TMZ reported.

He was arrested and later transferred by campus officers to the Los Angeles County Jail according to the site.

TMZ reports that the producer has been charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats, and one count of battery.

The website revealed the star was screaming threats at Alosi – and the 5 or 6 people who rushed in to break up the fight shouting ‘I’m gonna f**k you up’

A source said ‘charges will most likely be dropped but [Diddy] won’t be allowed on the field anymore.’

Sources associated to the rapper claim he was acting in self-defense.

An insider connected to Diddy claims that he was not the aggressor and it all began during a workout earlier in the day where strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was ‘riding Justin badly’ and eventually told him not to come back until the end of summer due to a perceived lack of effort.
