“I think it’s appropriate to give my kids whatever I want to give my kids,” he told Martin Bashir. “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…Nobody knows the lessons that I’ve taught my children to understand, if they are mentally ready for that,” he said. “It wasn’t even about a lesson; it’s what I wanted to do. I could do whatever I want to do and you can’t question me about it.” (New York Daily News)
Details on the birthday celebration hit the Internet in late January.
Talk about a sweet 16. For his 16th birthday, Diddy gave his son Justin Dior Combs a brand-new silver Maybach (price tag: $360,000). The teen received the wheels at a lavish bash Saturday night at M2 Ultralounge club in NYC. (Among the guests: Jersey Shore stars Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and rapper Lil’ Kim.) Diddy, 40, also gave his son a $10,000 check to open a bank account. (For the record, Justin is donating it all to Haiti relief.) “I’m just ecstatic right now,” Justin told UsMagazine.com at his party, which will be featured on an upcoming episode of MTV’s My Super Sweet 16. “Words can’t even describe how I feel. I’m so blessed and thankful for all of this.” (US Magazine)
