Diddy Treats Son To Maybach Limousine For Making Honor Roll

Diddy Treats Son To Maybach Limousine For Making Honor Roll

(UPDATE: Diddy has hit back at rumors about him buying his son Justin another car. Via Twitter he wrote: “Attention blogs!!!…. Didn’t get my son another car. I don’t know where these rumors start. Have a blessed day!”)

Below is the original story….

Sean Combs, otherwise known as Diddy, doesn’t see anything wrong with spending lots of money on his 17-year-old son Justin.

The Independent reports that the music mogul, who bought Justin a Maybach for his 16th birthday, just gave him a limousine version of the vehicle worth $390,000.

Diddy explains, “Justin has turned himself around and is now an honors student, which he wasn’t before, so I wanted to treat him. It’s a collector’s car so maybe he will use it for special occasions like on a first date, but like all my kids, he prefers the simpler things than the expensive things. Simple tastes.”

Last year during an interview, Diddy defended his choice of the Sweet Sixteen gift.

“The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question,” he said about journalist Martin Bashir.

“You don’t ask white people what they buy their kids,” Diddy continued. “And they buy ‘em Porsches and convertible Bentleys, and it ain’t no question. It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way that people still look at you.

And I’m not saying that consciously he’s a racist. But he probably don’t even realize that he would not ask Steve Jobs that. He would be like Steve Jobs has that money, and that’s the gift his kid is supposed to get.”

      How is he a sperm donor when he has stepped up financially and emotionally for his five biological children and one stepson? Although quite busy, he is constantly seen vacationing, supporting, all of his children–you say sperm donor, I say amazing father.

    Wow! I do agree with him because if it was Donald Trump buying Ivanka a tower at 16 years old, no would question him. But Diddy is ignorant, what the hell is a 16 years old boy doing with a Mayback, whatever the hell its called. You need to teach the boy that things don’t just come to you just because you made the honor roll. Maybe he should have taken him to a shelter to serve the under privilege, so he can see how sweet his life is in comparison to others. You want to teach your kids how to work hard always and don’t give them a diamond biscuit for something he should have been doing in the first place. Plus, that is such a waste of money when there is so many children in the world that are starving.

      Diddy isn’t responsible for other people’s children, he’s responsible for his own. He can spend his money however he pleases. If we felt guilty for every single thing we’ve ever splurged on, we’d kill ourselves. Justin made Honor roll, and he was rewarded for his hard work balancing academics, sports, and trying to get into a college of his choice. He could’ve easily turned into a Miley Cyrus type character.

    Don’t agree with you antigoniem, we are responsible for teaching our kids values and how to reach out and touch another that is in need. No he is not responsible for the world’s children, but it is people like us that has him in the position he is and that makes him socially responsible to the world whether or not he likes it. I think it is only a foolish man that believes that he needs to reward his child with extravagant gift to encourage him. A wise man would have a higher level of consciousness, which is to give the extras to those in need rather than waste it on material accumulations. That is the problem with some people who acquire wealth overnight, they have no value for what it means to have so much abundance in their lives and how they could continue to have an influence and other people’s lives. If you make $1million and need only 500,000 to maintain your lifestyle, why not give the rest to those indeed. Why waste it and buy your son a 500,000 car because he made the honor roll. There are other ways to encouraged your kids. He is a foolish man who is raising an arrogant child just like him. Additionally, you would not see someone with old money doing that sort of none sense. You need to watch his sweet 16 bash on Mtv, he thinks he is a prince and is entitled. It makes me sick to my stomach.

      So now Diddy acquired his wealth overnight? How do you figure that? He has been working since he was a teenager, promoting, performing, etc. He was not born into wealth, but has worked to make every dime he has earned. I hope you do realize that you’re prejuding here.

      Diddy can do whatever he chooses to do with HIS money, and if that means buying extravagant gifts for his children, then let him do just that. Who are we to tell him how to spend his money? Diddy donates to charity like every other celebrity. Obviously, he doesn’t buy his children lavish gifts everyday. BTW why does every child with a high self esteem have to be arrogant or cocky? And I hope you know Sweet 16 is scripted just like every other show on MTV. P.S. There’s also a possibility that he’s giving his children what he didn’t have.
