UCLA Scholarship & the Controversy
Justin not only received accolades as an upcoming footballer, but also earned the prestigious 'UCLA' scholarship. He got admission to the college under their sports scholarship scheme. He was trolled heavily by the media for accepting the scholarship that might have helped many poor students. Justin is the son of a millionaire, and the 54 thousand dollars scholarship could have served many needy students.
Justin stated in his defense that he earned the scholarship purely on the basis of his football skills. Also, he had always dreamt of studying in 'UCLA.' The college too supported Justin saying that their selection process considers students’ accomplishments and not their family’s financial status.
Being born to rich and famous parents certainly has its own perks. When Justin’s mother got pregnant, Sean was not sure about taking up the responsibility. He broke up with Justin’s mother. As a result, she sued Sean for not supporting their son financially. After many years, Sean finally showed up as a father. On Justin’s sixteenth birthday, he gifted him a 'Maybach' car worth $ 360 thousand. In addition to that, he also gifted him a chauffeur with the car.
