On Monday (November 06), he backtracked.
“I was only joking,” Combs said in a new Instagram video. “I didn’t change my name. It was just part of one of my alter egos. One of my alter egos is Love…You can address me by any of my older names. But if you still wanna call me Love, you can call me Love, baby. But I was only playin’.”
Combs’ initial announcement caused a social media frenzy. It also prompted wrestling fans to note that the name Brother Love was already taken by former World Wrestling Entertainment star Bruce Prichard.
