This comes two years after the rapper openly revealed plans to change his name to Brother Love.
In a video posted to his Instagram page at that time, Diddy said, “I have some very serious, serious news…I’ve been praying on this and I’ve decided…I know it was risky cause I knew I could come off as corny to some people…like yo…I decided to change my name again.”
He continued, “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… it’s my birthday I feel good god is the greatest I give all the glory and I thank my momma and daddy.”
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Diddy filed a name change petition in the Los Angeles County Courts.
In the documents, filed by powerhouse celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, Diddy states his name will be changed from “Sean John Combs” to “Sean Love Combs.”
The hip-hop mogul writes in the legal filing that his reasoning for the switch is a “desire to change middle name.”
