From Puff Daddy to P. Diddy then to simply Diddy, it seems like with every season comes a new nickname for music and fashion mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs – but he says new rumors about his name changing are false.

Combs told Ryan Seacrest on the KIIS-FM radio show Wednesday that contrary to reports, he will not be changing his name to Sean John.

"I have been there done that," he told Seacrest. "Too much of the name changing thing is when somebody is going crazy. I'm not going crazy. I'm very sane and I'm not changing my name."

Asked where the rumor came from, Combs revealed the possible source as a fashion show for his clothing line. "I think I made a comment during the Sean John fashion show about it…and I think it got turned into I'm changing my name."
