Kanye West Files Docs to Legally CHANGE His Name

According to multiple news outlets, KanyenWest has reportedly filed court documents to legally change his full name into a brandnnew identity with MUCH fewer characters. Let’s get into it. It seems Kanye West is taking a page straightnfrom the book of many singular-named stars like Cher, Prince and Madonna as he’s reportedlynpetitioned to drop his full name and start going by his nickname ‘Ye’.  According to a filing from the Los AngelesnSuperior Court, Kanye is petitioning to get rid of his full name, Kanye Omari West, innfavor of his well-known two-letter nickname with no middle or last name.  The documents were dated from weeks ago onnAugust 11th but were not actually sent into the court system until Tuesday, and they citen“personal reasons” for the change. Before this change becomes official, however,na judge must approve of it, and at the time of reporting, an email seeking comment fromnthe attorney who filed the docs has not yet been returned.  Kanye has stated for years now that he wantsnto change his name to Ye, as seen in a tweet from 2018 that read, “The being formallynknown as Kanye West. I am YE.” Ye also happened to be the name of his 2018nalbum, and he’s even stated in past interviews that aside from being a shortened versionnof his own name, it’s a word commonly used throughout the Bible. At one point, during a past episode of KeepingnUp With The Kardashians, Kim and Kanye discussed naming their fourth child ‘Ye’ after him,njust before settling on Psalm. While some might assume that Kanye’s latestncourt filing might have something to do with his ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian West,nKim actually did not file to change her last name back to just Kardashian during the originalndivorce filing in February. While it’s still up in the air as to ifnand when the court will grant his petition to change his name, Kanye is currently expectednto release his tenth studio album Donda, named after his late mother, hopefully soon afternmonths of pushback. He has since been holding a series of stadiumnlistening parties for the album, which is now scheduled to be released late this month,nand as it currently stands, his profile on streaming platforms Spotify and Apple Musicnstill stands as ‘Kanye West.’ For all the details on Kanye’s latest movenin the ongoing feud between he and Drake, click right over here to watch another ClevvernNews video.
