Kanye West decided to change his name

Divorce from Kim, new album, romance with Irina Shayk, collaboration with GAP. It would seem that this year Kanye West will no longer be able to surprise us.

The musician is going to change his name for personal reasons – the rapper filed the appropriate documents with the court in Los Angeles.

As it became known, Kanye West wants to change his name to Ye – without a last name. Previously, the artist stated this in a tweet, but only now decided to make an official request. More often than not, a California court approves such requests. The exceptions are those cases where the judge suspects that the name change is needed for fraud.
