No longer is Sean John Combs. Diddy has legally changed his middle name to ‘Love,’ which shows his new driver’s license and welcomes fans to his ‘Love’ era.
During his long career, Sean John Combs had many handles. In 1997, he was first Puff Daddy. Then P. Diddy was on. Then he returned to Puffy before settling for good on Diddy in 2005. Although the mogul still responds to this name, he introduces a new “era” and legally changed his middle wizard to “Love.”
On Month 3 May Diddy took his fresh handle to Instagram to show the Florida driver’s license through his brand New State. The middle name of Gone is “John,” where instead, there is the term “Love.” Diddy even wrote his new full “Sean Love Combs” signature under his photos. And he’s glad he knows – through the paper – that Diddy is now listed by the State of Florida as a “secure driver.” He doesn’t even fear fans who see him living on the exclusive Star Island in Miami Beach, where he has owned a mansion on the waterfront since 2003.
Diddy proudly exclaimed in the caption, “Look what I just got in the mail today…IT’S OFFICIAL!!! WELCOME TO THE LOVE ERA.” The 51-year-old has been claiming since Nov. 2017 that he was ditching all of his previous monikers and wanted to only be known as “Brother Love,” and now the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles has helped grant his wish.
Diddy made a 50-second Twitter video on his 48th birthday in 2017 in which he explained to fans,“I have some very serious serious news. I’ve been praying on this and I decided to…change my name again. The father of six revealed, “I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different. So my new name is love, a.k.a Brother Love.”
“I will not be responding to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, or any of my other monikers except love or Brother Love,” he continued. Is that correct? It’s my birthday, and I’m in a good mood. Before blowing a kiss at the camera, he says, “God is the best, I owe him all the glory, and I thank my momma and daddy.” Diddy later revealed that he was just joking when he said he wouldn’t answer to other terms, but he did start the process by filing a petition for a name change in Los Angeles County Superior Court in October 2019.
But Sean John is going to remain always in this place with his long clothes and his collection of fragrances. Initially, in 1999, he started with a sportswear label and has exponentially grown since. He has offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Tokyo and sells all kinds of jeans, suits and collaborative clothing. Diddy also has a collection called “Fashiontainment,” a word coined by Diddy “to describe the crossroads between fashion and entertainment.”
