Two months after Sean "Diddy" Combs was arrested for an alleged assault on one of his son's football coaches, the hip-hop mogul has opened up about the incident.

"When you have a child that plays sports, you're actually giving your child up to those coaches," Combs told Power 105's The Breakfast Club Monday. "You have to be able to take a lot. As a Combs, my sons, they have to be able to take a lot, you can't have no soft skin. But I think there's a fine line, too, and I think that there's times when you have to just communicate and find out what's going on and be by your children's side."

But now, Combs calls what happened at UCLA in June an example of communication gone wrong.

"I went there to communicate," he insisted.

When one of the radio hosts held up a kettlebell — the object Combs allegedly used against the coach during the incident — and asked "Do you know what this is?" Combs simply said, "It's a miscommunication."

While he was never charged, the father of six mentioned there has been one consequence to what happened.

Although his son, Justin, is back on the field for practice, dad can't come.

"No, as I know right now, I'm not allowed," he said.
