Is Kim Kardashian Dropping the Last Name West! Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West last week (truly, end of an era!), and by all accounts the split is going to be pretty seamless. But one question remains: will Kim drop the last name West?
While the reality star is known best as Kim Kardashian, she legally changed her name to Kim Kardashian West in 2014, announcing the news on—where else?—Instagram:
Kim also uses the last name West in her KKW Beauty branding, so dropping the name post-divorce could be tricky. Either way, a source tells E! News that Kim is undecided at this point. “Kim hasn’t expressed whether or not she will remove ‘West’ from her branding,” a source explained, adding that the needs of her kids are coming first: “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.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see—but plz note that for now Kim’s name on Instagram remains “Kim Kardashian West.”
