Former UCLA football head coach Rick Neuheisel revealed some interesting tidbits about the university’s recruitment of Justin Combs, saying the athlete’s father played a role in him being offered a spot on the team.

“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. “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.”

On Monday, Diddy was arrested after allegedly attacking Justin’s conditioning coach with a kettle bell. Rick didn’t refrain from sharing his theory on what sparked the showdown between the Bad Boy mogul and Sal Alosi.

“Justin had missed some workouts prior to this and had said to Sal that he was doing workouts with his dad’s private trainer. There are discretionary workouts and mandatory workouts. The NCAA has a window of time. Discretionary workouts, he missed, which he’s allowed to — they’re discretionary. He had said he’s working out with his dad’s trainer… Justin looks a little out of shape, and there was something said. He was actually removed from the workout. (Diddy) got the report from Justin and marched over.”

Rick also said the coaches didn’t want Diddy arrested, but once campus police were involved, it was nothing they could do. “What I learned was they were going to let this go, because the UCLA folks didn’t want to press charges. But when the campus police arrived on the scene, they looked at the film.”

Diddy has since been released from jail, and is facing three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
