*Diddy says he sees nothing wrong with giving his son Justin a $360,000 car for his 16th birthday in January.
In an interview with ABC’s “Nightline,” the rapper got defensive when asked if he thought it was appropriate for him to present Justin Dior Combs with a silver Maybach as his first car.
“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.”
Without getting into details, Diddy suggested that he had talked about money with his brood.
“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.”
Diddy’s lavish gift made headlines in February when it aired as part of MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16.”
Earlier on in the ABC interview, Diddy revealed that his children, all six of them, “deserved more (of his) personal time.” In response, Bashir suggested that having six children by different women was setting a bad example for his fans.
“All of my kids are taken care of,” Diddy responded. “They all go to the best schools.”
