Kim Kardashian is officially a single lady! Well, just legally. On March 2, Kim was informed that her request to become legally single from Kanye West after their six-year marriage had been granted. After filing her request for this status change in December 2021, Kim is likely ecstatic to put this chapter behind her. And what better way to do this than making it Instagram official? Just twenty-four hours after receiving the news, Kim dropped the West from her username and returned to her maiden name Kim Kardashian. With this simple change, she's showing the world and Kanye that she has moved on.
Although Kim may be legally single, she's certainly not curled up in bed feeling sorry for herself like the majority of us after a breakup. Instead, she's walking the streets of Los Angeles with her Hollywood heartthrob boyfriend Pete Davidson on her arm, and she's never looked happier! In addition to this, Kim is living her best life as a mother, CEO, beauty and fashion goddess, television star, and lawyer! And although most of us couldn't imagine taking on so much, Kim makes it all look so easy.
Despite the divorce's amicable start and the rapper being romantically linked with multiple women since the separation, Kanye has made it clear on his social media accounts that he does not want to split from his ex-wife and is doing what he can to get his family back together. With issues such as child custody and asset ownership still up in the air, Kim's request to be declared legally single is her attempt to speed up the process of this still unfinalized divorce. According to Rolling Stone, in documents filed on February 23, she explained her motives, "I believe that the court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children."
Kim may have dropped the West from her Instagram username, but her KKW Fragrance and beauty lines still contain her previous initials with the rapper's last name. Will the star go as far as to rename the brands to remove any reference to her ex-husband? Currently, she is still promoting the brands on her Instagram page, but Kim Kardashian always has something up her very fashionable sleeve. Stay tuned...
