Artest’s daughter wants to be “World Peace,” too


Finally, World Peace is spreading. Maybe not as we had all hoped, but it is spreading.

At least in the Artest household.

In the coming weeks Ron Artest is expected to become Metta World Peace (there was some traffic ticket issues to deal with), and now his daughter wants to get in on the act, reports TMZ (via the Orange County Registar).

Ron’s rep tells TMZ, 8-year-old Diamond Artest has told her dad she wants to take on the World Peace name — and with a name like Diamond, the resulting moniker might even be awesomer than her dad’s.

Diamond hasn’t decided when she wants to begin the legal process — but we’re told Ron’s ready and willing to sign on the dotted line whenever she’s ready.

Diamond World Peace. Well, I know people with worse names. So do you.
