Diddy Forced To Change Name
Saturday, September 09, 2006
Rap superstar SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS has been forced to change the 'Diddy' part of his name after being sued by a UK music producer also called Diddy, citing unfair competition.

"He changed his name to Diddy. I was gutted," Dearlove told the Guardian. "I started getting emails from Puerto Rican girls asking if they could be in my video and people were asking me to look at their clothing line."

As part of the settlement, which was sealed earlier this week in the high court, Combs agreed to pay £10,000 damages and more than £100,000 legal costs, although the final figure will be decided by the court.

The court settlement means he must rebrand himself in the UK.

Dearlove is known in clubland for his remixes of classics such as Blondie’s hit Atomic.
