Diddy: Call Me Walter Lee

Rap superstar SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS has changed his name again - he now insists on being called WALTER LEE.

The hip-hop entrepreneur changed his name from PUFF DADDY to P Diddy in 2001 following his split from JENNIFER LOPEZ and his acquittal on nightclub shooting charges.

Now he's making another switch, to mark his foray into the world of acting.

The 34-year-old made his Broadway stage debut on Monday (26APR04), playing Walter Lee in A RAISIN IN THE SUN - and he is so determined to capture the essence of the frustrated chauffeur, he's remaining in character even when he's offstage.

His acting coach SUSAN BATSON explains, "His public persona is so strong that I thought it was necessary for him to do it."
