Sean Combs Takes Back New Name Brother Love

Award-winning American rapper Sean Combs, who has been known over the years as Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy, and Diddy, recently caused an uproar after announcing a new name Brother Love.

Make up your mind, Diddy.

The 48-year-old father of six posted a video on Instagram announcing that he would only answer to the name Love or Brother Love.

Fans complained about not being able to keep up with the name changes. Some wrestling fans also pointed out that former WWE star Bruce Prichard had already taken the name Brother Love.

Following the not-so-positive feedback from fans and the media on the name change, he posted another video on Instagram saying the Brother Love moniker was just a joke.

He said:

“Well, ladies and gentlemen, today I’ve come to the conclusion that you can NOT play around with the internet.

Due to an overwhelming response from the media out there… and just due to there not wanting to be any confusion – I was only joking. I didn’t change my name. It was just part of one of my alter egos. One of my alter egos is Love.

But to set the record straight… You can address me by any of my older names. But if you still wanna call me Love, you can call me Love, baby. But I was only playing.”


I see you can’t play with the internet 😎❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ be calm. Spread LOVE.

After he took back the name, Prichard tweeted:

“Thank you everyone for helping @diddy see the light! Just so you know Puffy…I love you.”

Combs founded his label Bad Boy Entertainment in 1993 and his 1997 debut album, No Way Out, has been certified platinum seven times. He has also won three Grammy Awards and is worth $820million (£622.6m), according to Forbes.
