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.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
