Justin Dior Combs is an American socialite, actor, and former footballer, who is better known as the son of rapping legend Sean “Puffy” Combs and designer Misa Hylton-Brim. Born and raised in the lap of luxury, Justin had a cushy childhood, with his father gifting him a ‘Maybach’ car on his 16th birthday. Justin was dragged into a controversy when he accepted a coveted football scholarship from ‘UCLA,’ with critics claiming that a needy student probably deserved it more than a millionaire’s son. Justin has also been seen in series and movies. Previously, he also revealed his plans to start an event management company.
Early Life and Family
Justin Dior Combs was born on December 30, 1993, in Mount Vernon, New York, United States, to legendary American rapper Sean Combs, also known by his stage names, “Puff Daddy,” “P. Diddy,” “Diddy,” or “Puffy,” and designer Misa Hylton-Brim.
Justin was Sean’s first biological child. Sean had previously adopted Quincy Brown, his partner Kimberly Porter’s son from her previous relationship with Al B. Sure!
During their relationship, Kimberly and Sean had a son, Christian (born in 1998), and twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jessie James (born in 2006). Kimberly died in 2018.
Soon after the birth of his twins, Sean fathered a daughter, Chance, with Sarah Chapman. He was also in a relationship with Cassie Ventura from 2007 to 2018.

Career: From a Controversial Football Scholarship to Entertainment
Justin Dior Combs initially studied at the ‘Iona Preparatory School’ in New York. He was always interested in football and played there as a defensive back, under coach Victor Quinlo. He was listed as a number 5 prospect from the state of New York.
In 2012, Justin won a football scholarship to the ‘University of California, Los Angeles’ (UCLA). He was on the ‘UCLA Athletic Director’s Honor Roll’ that year. While he accepted the scholarship, many criticized him for taking up a scholarship that should have ideally gone to a financially challenged or needy student. Justin defended himself by saying he had worked his way up and thus deserved the scholarship. The university also cleared the air by declaring that the scholarship which offered Justin a place on the university football team and a sum of $54,000 per year toward his education was funded by the university’s athletic program proceeds (such as ticket sales) and not deducted from taxpayers’ money.
