Kim won’t give up Kanye’s West


Kim Kardashian West will not change her name after her divorce from Kanye West is finalised.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashian­s star added West to her surname when she tied the knot with Kanye in 2014, and after she filed for divorce earlier this year, it was assumed she would go back to being known as Kim Kardashian after the paperwork was finalised.

However, sources have informed TMZ that Kim will be keeping her extra moniker, because it’s “important for her to keep the same last name as her four children” – North, eight; Saint, five; Chicago, three; Psalm, two.

Kim’s decision to keep West in her name comes as Kanye has filed to have it removed from his own moniker, as he is looking to change his full name – Kanye Omari West – to simply “Ye”.

The Heartless rapper said in legal documents that his decision to change his name is for “personal” reasons, but he did not give any further informatio­n on his reasoning.

In California, a judge has to sign off on someone trying to legally change their name, and in most cases, the change has to be published in several newspapers.
