KIM Kardashian said she will “NOT legally drop West from her name” as her ex Kanye West filed papers to change his name to just Ye.
Kanye made the legal request earlier this week ahead of the third listening party for his upcoming Donda album.
Despite her ex-husband’s desire to abbreviate his name, Kim has no plans to eliminate West from her name, according to TMZ.
While the KUWTK star supports the rapper’s decision, Kim feels its important to maintain the same name as her four children.
The former couple share daughters North, eight, and Chicago, three, and sons, Saint, five, and Psalm, two.
Although Kanye has been a household name to fans for two decades, the Grammy-award winner asked the court to change his full name from Kanye Omari West to just “Ye.”
If a judge signs off on the request, the rapper will no longer be known as Kanye and will instead take on the abbreviation of his name.
According to the outlet, a judge will likely approve the request “unless there’s evidence a name change is designed to commit fraud or other shenanigans.”
Last month, The Sun revealed that Kim was looking to drop West from her KKW beauty line to reflect her “independence” after her split from the recording artist.
An insider explained: “She feels the strongest and most independent she’s felt in her life so she wants this brand to feel completely hers now.
“In order to do that she obviously needs to drop the ‘West’ part from the branding.
“Kanye wants it to succeed so he was supportive of the decision and at the end of the day, he also seemed happy to disassociate from the brand.”
The source continued to claim: “Lack of sales haven’t seemed like a huge concern for Kim or the team so that wasn’t really a factor in the decision.
“But it definitely was talked about that this move would help since sales have plateaued in recent months. So they agree a shakeup certainly wouldn’t hurt.”
Kim and Kanye have maintained a friendly relationship since filing for divorce back in February.
The model attended both of Kanye’s listening events sitting front row with their children to show support.
The rapper is set to host his third listening party for his latest album on Friday at Soldier Field in Chicago.
It was recently reported that the rapper will go all out for the upcoming event and plans to recreate the home where he was raised inside of a Chicago Stadium.
