Radar Online is reporting Justin Combs will never suit up again for the UCLA Bruins. The 21-year-old redshirt Junior was a defensive back who practiced daily with the squad — until his father, hip hop mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs was charged with felony assault for throwing a kettlebell at an assistant coach.
Radar Online is reporting Justin was sacked from the team on Tuesday — just hours after his famous father posted bond and walked out of the UCLA campus jail.
Witnesses say Combs, who attended practice once a week, was upset with strength and conditioning Coach Sal Alosi for “disrespecting” Justin and throwing him out of practice.
A UCLA Bruins player told Radar, “We were working out in a warm up line and Justin was in front. He did something incorrectly and Coach Alosi [seen here] yelled at him, saying ‘You’re never in the front of the line, go to the back of the line.’”
The player said, “Justin was shaking his head saying ‘You’re tripping and over-reacting,’ and that made the coach mad.”
So strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi “yelled at him, ‘You’re done for the rest of the season, go work out with your dad’s personal trainer!’” the source claimed.
The source said Justin missed too many mandatory team practices and claimed he was working out with his father’s personal trainer.
After he was kicked out of practice Justin ran home to tell his father who rushed down to the facility and confronted Alosi in the locker room after practice. Combs became irate when Alosi, who was on his cell phone, told Combs to wait one minute.
Alosi reportedly told Justin he would speak to him but Combs had to leave his office — which made Combs even angrier.
Alosi put his arms up in a defensive gesture when Combs allegedly walked into his hand. “Don’t put your hands on me,” Combs allegedly warned Alosi.
A Hollywood insider said Combs hates to lose at anything. The 45-year-old father-of-5 gradually grew frustrated over his son’s lack of playing time.
The insider said Combs is that dad who is overprotective of his pampered son.
“Coaches yell during practice,” the insider told Sandrarose.com. “That’s why you send your kids away to college… If he doesn’t coaches yelling at Justin he should keep him at home.”
Radar’s source said Head Coach Jim Mora “hasn’t been impressed with Justin as a player.” He said, “Justin was recruited by previous coach Rick Neuheisel, and Mora probably would never have offered him a spot on the team. Justin just doesn’t have the size to make an impact on the field.”
Mora hired a new coaching staff who didn’t have the same respect for Combs that the old coach had. As a result, Justin has only played in seven games in three seasons.
“Justin isn’t the first person to get thrown out of practice. But Justin just doesn’t have the gift for football really,” the Bruins player told Radar.
