[Updated 3 July 2015] People reports that P. Diddy will not face felony assault and battery charges. "We are thankful that the district attorney rejected felony charges in this matter," said P. Diddy's attorney. "This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with."

[Updated 24 June 2015] P.Diddy has responded to the allegations made against him and has issued a statement.

"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate," the statement reads. "What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed."

Sean "P.Diddy" Combs was arrested on Monday night after attacking a University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) football coach called Sal Alosi. Apprently, the R&B singer's son, Justin Combs, attends the school and is on the football team.

TMZ reports that Diddy attacked the coach because he was "screaming intensely" at Justin. P.Diddy obviously didn't like it and swung a kettlebell at the coach. Thankfully, he missed. He was then charged with assault with a deadly weapon (we've always thought kettlebells were deadly). As of now, the singer is still in custody. Read the university's official statement here
