The 41-year-old former Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is turning the knife even deeper because she wants to ditch her ex's famous last name. Kim no longer wants West attached to her identity. Instead, she's asking the judge to restore her maiden name.
According to reports, Kim wants the issues of child custody and property kept separate from the duo's marital status. If the judge signs off, it means Kim can marry whoever she wants — we're looking at you, Pete Davidson.
This is a common move for A-listers who want to move on with their lives amid divorce. Kelly Clarkson and Dr. Dre — who are both repped by Kim's lawyer Laura Wasser — pulled the same stunt.
While common, it's bold for Kim — considering Ye just declared his love for her in front of thousands during his Larry Hoover benefit concert with Drake last night. The beauty mogul was there, so it's not like she didn't hear his pleas.
During one of his songs, Kanye awkwardly ad-libbed and sang, "I need you to run right back to me. More specifically, Kimberly."
Kim filed for divorce in February after 6 years of marriage. The exes share four children together — North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. All the kids have West as their last name.
While Kim doesn't reveal the reason in her documents, the name change could have something to do with her new romance. The KUWTK star has been linked to Davidson since October after they shared a steamy kiss as Jasmine and Aladdin on Saturday Night Live.
They have been inseparable since and packing on the PDA in Los Angeles and New York City. As for Kanye, he most recently was linked to model Vinetria. After last night's performance, the rapper is probably single again.
