Kim Kardashian removes “West” from her name following divorce finalization

Kim Kardashian removes

As a Los Angeles judge pronounced her legally single on Wednesday, reality Tv star, Kim Kardashian dropped Kanye West’s name.

Kardashian said yes to both when Judge Steve Cochran inquired if she planned to change her last name and if her marriage had broken down. West’s lawyer, Samantha Spector, claimed the rapper was more concerned about what would happen to his “properties and interests” than the name change.

She claimed that one of West’s top priorities was waiving Kardashian’s marital privilege with any future spouse, which would allow West to call any future spouse to testify in court about Kardashian, a move Kardashian’s lawyer previously stated “is to prevent or make it difficult for Ms. Kardashian to remarry.”

West retained Spector after firing his counsel the day before the hearing, and he asked 120 days before the two sides met again, citing “a lot of custody concerns that need to be sorted out.”
