Kim Kardashian Will Reportedly Remain Kim Kardashian West Even After Divorce and Kanye’s Name Change

American reality TV star Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be getting divorced but according to the latest reports, Kim has decided she’s going to be keeping her soon to be ex-husband’s surname West after their split.

We reported earlier this week that the 44-year-old rapper submitted paperwork to have his name legally changed from Kanye Omari West to simply “Ye,” but it doesn’t seem as though Kim is following in his footsteps.


According to a new report by TMZ, Kim intends on keeping her name the way it is, believing that it’s important for her to have the same surname as her four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Reports add that Kim is not only happy keeping “West” as her last name, she also accepts Kanye’s decision to remove it from his own name and go by simply “Ye.” She is said to be supporting his move to legally change his name, believing that people will still refer to him as “Kanye West” after it goes through.

Kim has been supporting Kanye throughout their divorce and both of them have remained friends. Ahead of Kanye’s overly anticipated return to music, he reactivated his Instagram account, and the KUWTK star is still the only person he follows.

Kim has also been supportive of Kanye’s imminent album DONDA rollout, showing up at several listening events this month. She is expected to also be attending the event tonight in Chicago, for which Kanye is building a replica of his childhood home inside Chicago’s Soldier Field.

What do you think about Kanye’s decision to change his name? And now Kim’s to keep the West family name?
