Kim Kardashian Riding Kanye West’s Coattails?! Won’t Change Last Name

Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West. However, she remains close to her estranged husband. She showed up to one of his concerts, with their kids in tow. Some wonder if their divorce is just an elaborate PR stunt.

Now, it looks like Kim is not changing her name. She doesn’t have plans to drop “West” from her last name. It’s no secret that Kanye made the Kardashians who they are today. He’s responsible for their style and their increased fame. So, why would she not want to continue to ride his coattails?

KUWTK star has no plans to change her name

According to a new report, Kim Kardashian is not dropping “West” from her last name. However, it’s all for good reason. She plans to keep her legal name as “Kim Kardashian West” because she feels it’s important for her children. She wants to have the same last name as her four children – Chicago, North, Psalm, and Saint.

This revelation comes after Kanye West filed the legal documents to change his birth name “Kanye Omari West” to just “Ye.” While her former husband wants to drop the “West” name, Kim and her children will preserve it. Some fans assumed that Kim would return to her original name after the divorce. Many famous wives would file a request to change their legal name back to their original name, especially if it’s their stage name.

This is not the case for Kim. She’s used the name “Kim Kardashian West” for her KKW beauty line. So, that could be difficult to change if she followed through with the legal process. As a result, she wants to stick with “West” for the sake of her brand and her family. It’s interesting consider she’s already well-known as Kim Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian supports Kanye’s decision to change his name

She has nothing against the rapper’s decision to be known simply as “Ye.” His fans have called him that name for years, so it makes logical sense to them. To the rest of the world, it’s kind of strange. It’s akin to when Prince and Sean Combs legally changed their names. According to the report, Kanye’s friends and family members have been calling him that name for years.

Kim Kardashian supports his decision to change his name. She’s also been very supportive of his new album, Donda. The reality star showed up to his listening parties. All of this support has fans wondering if the couple will reunite. Kanye did end his relationship with supermodel Irina Shayk, so it’s not entirely out of the question. The exes remain “friendly,” but have no plans to get back together.
