Don’t call Diddy ‘Love’


Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs doesn’t want people to call him ‘Love’. The I’ll Be Missing You hitmaker has been known by a variety of monikers over the years, including Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, and Puffy, and although he legally changed his middle name to ‘Love’ last year, it’s not how he wants to be addressed. Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host bluntly asked: “What’s your name?” Diddy laughed and said: “I decided that I am just going to go by the name Diddy.”

After DeGeneres pointed out his name change, he replied: “See, Diddy is my nickname. Love is my real name. I just changed my name to Love. Sean Love Combs, that’s what it says on my driver’s licence, that’s my official name, Love. I’m Love. I am Love! I have made it.”

The 52- year- old star had a huge tattoo reading ‘ Love’ on the side of his body in honour of his new name.

He joked: “I wanted to make sure that if anybody didn’t get the message, they could see it. No, I love tattoos and I got that in one day.” Diddy announced last year that he had officially changed his middle name to Love, two years after filing a petition to do so.
