In 2017, Diddy announced on Twitter that he wanted to change his name to Love aka Brother Love because he saw a shift in the way he carried himself daily. 

“I’m just not who I am before,” he shared in the video. “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.”
