Mark Wahlberg has Diddy's back.

The Ted 2 star, who is also Sean 'Diddy' Combs' AQUAhydrate business partner, had nothing but supportive things to say about the hip-hop mogul days after Diddy was arrested for getting into a physical altercation with his son's football coach.

While he hasn't talked to him since everything went down, Mark told Extra, "I just know what a devout Christian and father he is and obviously he would do anything to protect his children." He continued, "I think it got blown out of proportion, but I hope everyone is okay and it gets resolved quickly."

New info is also surfacing about the coach Diddy got into a physical altercation with. Sources told Extra UCLA football coach Sal Alosi "verbally and physically" harassed the hip hop mogul's 21-year-old son, Justin, for quite some time before Diddy went to the school to confront Sal earlier this week.

After the coach sent Justin home from practice and told him not to come back until the end of the summer, Diddy reportedly went to the school to talk to the coach, not fight him. That convo clearly took a turn, though, considering Diddy was soon arrested on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery by the time it was done.

As it turns out though, Sal doesn't exactly have the most incident-free past. Among a list of incidents of past bad behavior, the coach's 8-year NFL career ended in 2010 after he was suspended indefinitely for allegedly telling inactive New York Jets players to line up along the sideline to potentially impede opposing players.

I thank God for having a father that's always there for me.. Love you pops!

And that's not all. While Sal was a student at Hofstra University, he and seven other students were arrested for forcing their way into a dorm room and assaulting three students.

The UCLA Athletic Department had no further comment about the incident or Sal's past, but it doesn't appear to be that much of a secret. In a recent sit-down, even 50 Cent said Sal is known as an "a**hole." We'll have to wait and see how this story develops.
