“Woah…that was a close one!” Diddy wrote on his twitter page.
According to reports, the Hip-Hop mogul was riding in a “Cadillac Escalade when a Lexus sedan turned left in front of it and the vehicles collided.” Although an ambulance was called, no one, including the driver and passengers from the other vehicle was taken to the hospital.
Beverly Hills police took a collision report but didn’t issue any citations.
Diddy is one proud dad. There’s no denying… just check his twitter page and you’ll see photos and messages about his children.
Over the weekend, his first born Justin Combs hit the field for the first time as a member the UCLA Football team. As you may recall, there were some controversy over the FULL athletic scholarship that the University awarded the 18-yr-old. Some believed that the son of the richest rapper in the business should not be granted a $54,000 scholarship. But UCLA fired back at those critics, stating that athletic scholarships are not based on finance but on athletic ability.
Proud parents Diddy and Misa Hylton sat and watched Justin in uniform as a UCLA Bruin.
“We’re here and this feeling that we feel of you child accomplishing something that they worked hard for, that you instill in them as parents, can’t be expressed in words,” Diddy said in the video.

Diddy has just released a trailer for “IBIZA” – a short film documenting his recent trip to the island in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of the city of Valencia in Spain.
“I started coming to Ibiza like 15 years ago, sh** changed my life,” the mogul said at the beginning of the clip.
The film (dropping this fall) was directed by Chris Latouche and features Diddy and his friends (Cassie too?) popping bottles of Ciroc and enjoying “summer parties Ibiza is known for.”
Meanwhile, check out these recent photos posted on his Twitter via Instagram of his adorable daughters Chance, Jessie and D’Lila.
Diddy took to twitter over the weekend and shared some exciting news about three of his children’s latest scholastic achievements.
The proud papa shared that daughter Chance, and sons Christian and Justin all graduated in one month.
“I had 3 of my kids graduate in one Month. God is truly the greatest!! I’m overwhelmed with joy!!!,” he tweeted.
Chance graduated from kindergarten and on her way to 1st grade… so cute!. His look-a-like son Christian graduated from 8th grade and on his way to high school and not forgetting Justin on his way to UCLA.
The argument is that, since Justin’ father is worth millions and millions of dollars, “the family should pay for his schooling regardless of his athletic skills that led to the scholarship offer.”
Officials at UCLA have defended their decision to award the “cornerback, saying he is worthy of receiving one of the couple of dozen or so football scholarships it hands out annually.”
Justin took to twitter and defended his hard work saying, “Regardless what the circumstances are, I put that work in!!!! PERIOD. He added. “Regardless of what you do in life every1 is gonna have their own opinion. Stay focused, keep that tunnel vision & never 4get why u started.” No word yet from Diddy
