Kim Kardashian West Will Keep Her Married Last Name Amid Kanye West Divorce
Update #1: Kanye West might be undergoing a name change but his estranged wife isn’t following suit. According to reports, she plans to keep her name Kim Kardashian West, despite their pending divorce, so she will have the same last name as their four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
She reportedly has no plans to change their children’s last name either, but is supportive of Kanye West going by Ye as that’s been his nickname for quite some time.
Still, insiders say she believes many will still refer to him by his birth name.
