Sean Combs will now no longer be answering to Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy, Diddy or any other names but 'Love a.k.a. Brother Love'.

"I have some very very serious news," he said in a Twitter video. "I been praying on this and I decided - I know it's risky because it could come off as corny to some people... I decided to change my name again."

"I'm just not who I am before, I'm something different," he continued, "so my new name is Love aka Brother Love.

"I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy or any of my other monickers but Love or Brother Love."

Wrestling aficionados may be reminded - with Brother Love - of this iteration of Mick Foley's character:
