Reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, has removed the surname of her ex-husband, Kanye West, from her social media profiles.
On her Instagram and Twitter pages, which was ‘Kim Kardashian West’ has become ‘Kim Kardashian’
This happened shortly after she was declared legally single, one year after filing for divorce from rapper, Kanye West.
Judge Steven Cochran of Los Angeles Superior Court had declared Kim single during a hearing on Wednesday, granting her the permission to return to her maiden name.
However, in February, her petition was challenged by West who claimed that the declaration might have adverse consequences, especially pertaining to the custody of their four children and marital assets.
Kim’s removal of West from her social media names, however, had not stopped her from promoting her KKW fragrance brand, which bore an initial from her estranged husband’s surname.
Also, the removal was against her earlier decision to keep Kanye’s last name, which she made when the rapper filed to officially change his name to ‘Ye’.
