Sean Combs, known as Diddy until recently, took to Twitter to announce that he would not be answering to any of his previous monikers. He decided to change his name again. That is, the name he goes under in the music industry.

“I’ve been playing on this and I decided…I know it’s risky and it could come off as corny to some people”, Combs started his video.

He explained why he took the “risky” decision:”I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different.”

He unveiled his new name: Love, aka Brother Love.


Brother Love made the announcement of his new name on his birthday, November 4. The rapper turned 48.

After several reports from the media regarding his name change, the musician decided to set the record straight and posted on Instagram that he didn’t actually change it.

“Due to the overwhelming response from the media out there… and just due to there not wanting to be any confusion… I was only joking. Okay?”, he said after drawing the conclusion that “you cannot play with the internet”. He did mention that Brother Love is one of his alter egos. “One of my alter egos is Love”.

Combs confirmed that he would answer to all his previous names “but if you still want to call me Love, you can call me Love, baby.”


Sean Combs became known under the name of Puff Daddy, in the mid-1990s. In 2001, he changed his name to P. Diddy, which lasted until 2005, when he asked to be called simply Diddy.
