Brandon T. Jackson says Diddy’s alleged attack on UCLA’s strength and conditioning coach last week was “love.”

The comedian sat alongside Karrueche Tran and Diddy’s son, Quincy Brown for a panel discussion over the weekend during the BET Experience. Following the thirty minute session, we caught up with the comedian to get his reaction on Diddy taking his support for his son, Justin Combs, to another level. “That’s love,” Jackson told us exclusively. “It’s a good father sticking up for they son. If somebody disrespected my son I would do whatever I could do …  I wouldn’t stick a kettlebell … I’m not that gangster.”

He added, “I love Diddy for that. I rock with Diddy. I always have.”

The 45-year-old was arrested last week after allegedly attacking Justin’s conditioning coach,Sal Alosi, with a kettlebell. Justin plays defensive back at the Los Angeles university. Apparently, the rapper was upset that Alosi was all over Justin during practice and “screaming intensely” at him.

Several days after the incident, former UCLA football head coach Rick Neuheisel revealed that Justin was only on the team because of Diddy. “When you’re weighing the assets of what a youngster can do for your program, there’s no question (being Diddy’s son) had something to do with it for me,” Neuheisel revealed on his SiriusXM radio show, College Sports Nation.

He added, “Justin is a great kid. His problem was his size. He’s not big enough to be a dominant player. Could he be productive? Yes. The fact his father was an influential guy played into my decision to go ahead and offer him.”

Diddy was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. According to reports, the charges may be dropped.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
