nickname were changed to Sean John, which has been denied by Combs. He has         
been previously known as Puff Daddy, later as P. Diddy (Puff and Puffy being       
often used as a nickname, but never as recording names), his nickname and stage   
name were then changed to Diddy (adopted in August 2005). He is still called P.   
Diddy in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, the latter after a legal battle       
with another artist, Richard "Diddy" Dearlove.                                     
His business interests include Bad Boy Records, the clothing lines Sean John and   
Sean by Sean Combs, a movie production company, and two restaurants. He has

US $358 million.
