Diddy Defends Decision To Offer Brown And Rihanna His Home

Rap mogul SEAN COMBS had to defend his decision to let CHRIS BROWN and RIHANNA use his Miami, Florida home to repair their shattered romance on national TV in America on Tuesday (10Mar09).
Photos of a smiling Brown riding around on one of Diddy's jet skis - weeks after allegedly beating his girlfriend - stunned the world, and now the rapper and designer is at the centre of the controversy after confirming he gave his friends the keys to his home, so they could reconcile.
TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres took Diddy to task for his decision during a taping of her daily show, which aired on Tuesday.
She asked Combs, who was on the show to promote his new Twitter.com project, "Why would you do that? Why would you give Chris - a guy who hit a girl... I don't understand."
Combs replied, "I know both of them, it's my house and I'm allowed to give my house to whoever I want to give my house to.
"I'm the type of person that I don't cast a stone or cast a judgment on anybody, so if a friend or friends ask me for a favour, then I'm gonna be there for a favour, as long as I know that the energy of the favour is positive."
He insisted he handed over the keys to his home "for two people to sit down and talk about a situation that they're in".
And he added, "I'm not gonna get involved in it, I'm not gonna pass judgment on it. If I can be there as a friend during hard times, then I'm gonna be there as a friend. I don't know the exact particulars... It's a dark time for them and I was there more as a supporter, that was it."
DeGeneres replied, "It's hard for me... I don't want any girl out there thinking it's OK to go back to a guy who hit her."
Diddy attempted to explain his decision further, adding, "I think that we all have to be honest with ourselves as adults, and people who have been in relationships, we know sometimes those relationships get ugly and sometimes this doesn't come out into the forefront the way this one has come out. There's a lot of stones being thrown and we don't know exactly what's going on.
"These are two young individuals. We need to pray for them."
He then went on the attack, telling his host, "You don't need to start just saying that you know something that you don't know; you wasn't in that car, I wasn't in that car and it isn't right for him to put his hands on her or her to put her hands on him. We don't know what the problem is."
The heated interview came just days after Oprah Winfrey urged Rihanna and Brown to consider a lengthy break from each other, so they could properly deal with the fall-out from their much-publicised fight on 8 February (09).
