Kim Kardashian West wants to be a single woman — and drop “West” from her name.
She filed the paperwork on Friday and asked the judge in her divorce case to declare her a legally single woman. The move comes hours after the rapper formerly known as Kanye West publicly asked for her back.
Kardashian wanted the judge to separate the issues of child custody and property from marital status. It’s a move her high-powered attorney, Laura Wasser, has done with other celebrity clients.
The Skims founder also asked that her maiden name be restored.
Kim Kardashian supported her estranged husband, who now goes by Ye, on Thursday night. During his “Free Larry Hover” benefit concert with Drake, Ye declared his love for the reality star while performing “Runaway.”
“I need you to run right back to me,” the 44-year-old sang. “More specifically, Kimberly.”
Kim Kardashian Seemed To Have Moved On With Pete
Kardashian seems to have moved on romantically with Pete Davidson.
After Kim Kardashian kissed Davidson during her Oct. 9 SNL, she has been photographed holding hands with the comedian twice in the last two months. They are “having fun together,” as reported by a reliable source.
“I guess it happened kind of fast,” Davidson’s SNL co-star, Kenan Thompson, said earlier this week. “But I don’t really know their business outside of what everybody else is reading. If they’re happy, I’m happy.”
It remains to be seen if Kim Kardashian’s move has anything to do with her rumored new boyfriend.
