The mogul born Sean Combs set the internet a-Twitter over the weekend when he announced on his birthday he was changing his name to “Brother Love.”
“I’m just not who I am before, I’m something different,” he said. “So my new name is ‘Love,’ a.k.a. ‘Brother Love.'”
Given that Combs has at various points in his rap/fashion/entrepreneurial career gone by Puffy, Puff Daddy, Puff, etc. it seemed entirely feasible.
But Diddy posted a video Monday on his official Instagram account saying he was just kidding and remarking, “Well, ladies and gentlemen, today I’ve come to the conclusion that you cannot play around with the internet.”
Meanwhile, the Bad Boy Records founder recently admitted he feels like the “luckiest man in the world” because of his children, Quincy, 26, Justin, 23, Christian, 19, twin girls D’Lila Star and Jessie James, and daughter Chance, all 10, from past relationships.
