“I’ve been praying on this, and I decided that — I know it was risky ‘cause it could come off corny to some people, like, yo, I decided to change my name again,” he offered in the video at the time. “I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different. So my new name is Love, aka Brother Love. I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy or any of my other monikers but Love, or Brother Love, OK?”
Due to an overwhelming response from followers, he later confirmed it was a joke but has apparently had a change of heart.
The notion of love has certainly been an overwhelming source of motivation for Combs of late, as he has been in the news for allegedly courting his son’s ex-girlfriend, Lori Harvey.
He also recently posted a heartfelt image of his late partner Kim Porter and, finally, has been seen about the City of Angels with actress Nicole Rivera.
Ya gotta love it.
