Will Kim Kardashian West Change Her Name After Her Divorce? Fans Are Wondering
KimYe fans are all wondering the same thing: will Kim Kardashian West change her name after her divorce from Kanye? It’s apparently complicated, since the name is tied to her namesake KKW beauty brand. "Kim hasn’t expressed whether or not she will remove ‘West’ from her branding," a source reportedly told E! News, later adding that "if she left it, it would be for her to share the same last name as her kids. Her kids and their happiness are her main priority. She is very protective over them."
Kim announced she had officially taken Kanye’s last name with an Instagram post on Aug. 14, 2019, just three months after the two tied the knot in Italy. Alongside a picture of herself she wrote, "New passport pic #Mrs.West #NameChange." As of now, her name still remains "Kim Kardashian West" on her Instagram profile.
After months of rumors, TMZ was the first to confirm Kim filed for divorced on Feb. 19. According to sources who reportedly spoke to the publication at the time, "it’s as amicable as a divorce can be."
As far as their finances go, the couple had a prenup and apparently neither party is contesting it. TMZ’s sources reportedly noted that "they are already far along in reaching a property settlement agreement."
Custody battles over their four children (North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1) are also reportedly unlikely to be taking place between these two as Kardashian is reportedly "asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s 4 kids" and "Kanye is fine with the joint custody arrangement." The sources reportedly added that "Kim and Ye are committed to co-parenting together."
Rumors of Kim and Kanye potentially getting divorced first emerged on Jan. 5 when Page Six broke the news that "divorce was imminent" for the A-List couple as she had reportedly hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser. In the same piece, Page Six also noted that Kim was no longer wearing her wedding ring and that Kanye did not spend the holidays with her and their children.
News of their divorce comes almost seven years since the rapper and the reality star first had their nuptials.
