AFTER filing for divorce from Kanye West at the beginning of the year, Kim Kardashian has continued to separate herself from the rapper.
The fashion mogul and entrepreneur first cited "irreconcilable differences" on February 19, 2021.
Did Kim Kardashian change her name?
On Friday, December 10, 2021, Kim Kardashian reportedly filed documents to become legally single, according to TMZ.
By becoming legally single, Kim's marital status can change while she and Ye continue to work on the other details of their divorce: things like child custody and property division.
The mother of four reportedly also asked to drop the name West and return just to her maiden name, Kardashian, despite a source announcing over the summer that Kim had no plans to change her name.
In October of 2021, Kim purchased the home she and Ye had shared with their children, in a buyout for around $23million.
Kanye took the route of changing his name before Kim, legally becoming "Ye" after a judge approved his August 24, 2021 request.
