Sean Combs: ‘jk’ on name change
Sean Combs says he was only joking when he announced over the weekend that he had changed his nickname from Diddy to Love, as in Brother Love.
The rapper and producer took to Twitter and Instagram to set the record straight after he says he learned “you cannot play around with the internet.” He says Love is one of his “alter egos.” Combs’ other nicknames over the years include Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy and Diddy. He now says he’ll answer to any of those names and also Love.
That’s the opposite of what he said in a video posted on his 48th birthday Saturday. He told fans in that message that he was going by “Love, a.k.a. Brother Love” and wouldn’t answer to anything else.
