Sean “Diddy” Combs has a new official government name and has the driver’s license to prove it. On Monday (May 3) the multi-hyphenate media mogul shared a photo of his new Florida state-issued license that revealed he will now be known as Sean Love Combs. 

“Look what I just got in the mail today,” he captioned his Instagram post, which also showed his new signature. “IT’S OFFICIAL!!! WELCOME TO THE LOVE ERA.”

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.”
