Ronald William Artest, Jr. is no more. Henceforth and forever, the NBA star’s will legally be called Metta World Peace. After initiating the process in June, World Peace could have been achieved sooner had the former Ron Artest not had outstanding parking tickets which had to be cleared up first. Legal obstacles out of the way, a court commissioner finally granted Artest’s wish on Friday and the man’s last name shall now be World Peace.

The change comes just in time for Ron Ron’s Metta’s Dancing With The Stars debut, which airs tomorrow, September 19th.
