Sean Combs Defends Son’s Pricey Present

Music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs spares no expense when it comes to his six children. When his son Justin Dior celebrated his 16th birthday earlier this year the rapper marked the occasion by giving him a new car – and not just any car, but a Maybach worth almost $400,000.

In a new interview with Nightline, Diddy defends the extravagant gift, saying, “I think its appropriate to give my kids whatever I want to give my kids. I feel the way I raise my children, I don’t have to explain to you or anyone else, ’cause nobody knows the way I raise my children. So nobody knows the lessons that I’ve taught my children to understand, if they are mentally ready for that…. It wasn’t even about a lesson; it’s what I wanted to do.”

He’s had plenty of success in music and in business, but Diddy says his greatest accomplishments are as a father.

“I definitely enjoy the responsibility of fatherhood. It’s probably one of the things I can honestly I’m not the most successful at. I feel that my kids deserve more personal time from me.”

    I’m not his biggest fan but I actually agree with his comment. They’re his children, and he doesn’t have to explain himself. I mean the car does sound a bit much but if he’s responsible enough and grateful why not? It’s not like he can’t afford it…

    Way too extravagant but it’s his business, his money to disperse how he wants. Hopefully in other ways he is teaching his kids to help those less fortunate.
