From Puff Daddy to Diddy, the hip-hop mogul whose given name is Sean John Combs is no stranger to changing his name. Diddy now has recently sought legal action to change his name, as That Grape Juice reports.

He’s attempting to legally change his name from Sean John Combs to Sean Love Combs, and he filed a name change petition in Los Angeles. The petition filing comes two years after he hinted at wanting to become Brother Love.

Diddy previously said, “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.”
