Sean Combs & Cassie Ventura

Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, pictured with life partner Cassie Ventura, has changed his name again. He must be bored.

The aging rap mogul took to Twitter.com on Saturday to announce he was changing his name to Brother Love or just Love for short.

“I know it’s risky because it could come off as corny to some people,” he tweeted “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.”

He added: “I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different.”

Despite saying he would not answer to any other name, his inner circle (family and close friends) will still refer to him as either Sean, Puff or Puffy.

In fact, no one in his inner circle ever calls him Diddy or P. Diddy or any variation of that name.

He obviously changes his name for his own amusement — and to separate his real friends from the posers who pretend to be down with him.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ok Sean it is. I don’t have patience for that kind of foolishness

  • Scromes1212

    Puff picked up a little weight. He can’t keep wearing his old suits. Gotta get him some new suits with a new tailor. That suit look like it would have fit perfect 5 years ago.

  • Anunnaki

    Sean u told old to still be trying to find out who u are, ain’t u like 55 or something. Your identity crises should have been long gone, next..

  • laidbackgal4real

    Sean puffy P. Diddy brother love or love ..ya get my drift is shaped funny he is knock kneed. Cassie is so pretty!

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Dat part!!!! I agree, dude is too old to be changing his name with the way he feels.

  • SDot

    Puff Silly!
    Cassie is looking funny!

  • hottlanta

    As long as his money hasn’t changed for the worst Cassie doesn’t care

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    His ghey ass…

  • Andrea Williams

    This might be his mid-life crisis or something because he is a little long in the tooth to be changing his name and trying to re-invent himself yet again. Go and enjoy your money as Puffy or Diddy and call it a day because I don’t see Brother Love catching on.

  • Renee26

    I’m not here for it….he doesn’t represent love enough IMO to even expect to be called that

  • kennedy campbell

    so yall have a problem with a grown man wanting to change his name? i mean some of yall complain about kids getting to pick out what they want to wear or how they wear their hair..lol..He should be able to do what he wants to do..he’s an ADULT.is it harming any of you guys complaining?

  • hottlanta

    He doesn’t care as long as you call him wealthy. When you stop calling him that then he has a problem.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I still call him Puffy because I’m old lol

  • lQueenNefertiti

    Call me silly but I actually like it..

  • shay2shaymd

    EXACTLY!!! All of his clothes look too damn tight.

  • Julia Lyons

    I still call him P Shitty…but Leon Lonnie Love…I mean, Brother Love, does have a nice ring to it.

  • The Goode Queen

    But can he copywrite it though? ? I think he’s enlightened now.

  • Pamela

    Sean is doing too much now. He needs to stop.

  • Pamela

    Lol

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    He too damn old to be looking for himself. You wait till you 50 to wanna come up with type of shit. Puff you must really don’t wanna sell anymore albums smdh

  • RealATLPeach36

    You can change your name but you can’t take away those nasty little secrets. But…..OKAY.

    I was considering this weekend to change my alias to Bria. I watched Starz over the weekend “Girlfriend Experience”, and one of the characters changed her name to Bria…and I love it!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    1. hire a trainer 2. but you can’t change the name of them baby mamas? not one?

  • RealATLPeach36

    He should loose a few pounds too, or get bigger pants…

  • Soufside ATL

    Is it me or does Cassie look like she bout tired of it? Lookin a lil aged in this pic .. might be angle tho, she is pretty tho

  • TheOwley

    He founded Sean John which sells very nice eye wear. I bet he won’t mess with that and the naming carrousel. Sean John Combs is unique in itself, what’s his issue with that. Sean John Combs, Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, was there ever a Puff Diddy, Brother Love, Love. A bit too old for this.

  • free

    he talking bout love but he got a 20-year relationship that he can’t take to the next level.

  • Hugga Bunch

    If his mama named him Sean, Ima call him Puffy.

  • Karen Brady

  • Karen Brady

    Leon Lonnie Love 🙂

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    Changing his name?!! Why don’t you change your status to husband to one of your baby mamas how bout dat!

  • XoXo

  • Lady_Elle

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Her face is full and both of them gaining weight ? should we put her on bump watch?

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    Another one who can’t keep his mouth closed, like Tamar’s husband…. Yeeyuck!! I have yet to see a pic of them where their mouths aren’t open and if there are some pics out there….. probably not very many.

    This chick is a dum-dum staying with him all these years. Then wasted her youth on this thang and still don’t have a ring or a hit record ?.

  • Jussjess25

    I love puff.. hes so dope, hes grown so much in what seems a positive way. But now that hes older I need him to just chill already. Loke just relax.

  • TheWildChild
  • Guess Who

    NIGGA PLEASE

  • divainkpen

    I’m late but I’m from Philly. Our moniker has always been the city of brotherly love. Perhaps that’s why it sounds catchy. It’s been around for since the 1600s. Puff is from New York nearby so he knows.

  • Karen Brady

    LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.. I have to find this episode later and watch it. Why you do this WildChild??!! WHY???????????!!!

  • lQueenNefertiti

    He probably has his own reasons as to why he’s always changing his name.. hell if I had his money I would change my name for the hell of it too!
