Kim Kardashian and Kanye West divorced in February 2021, but Kardashian isn't planning to change her name, now or in the future. A source told E! News that she will be keeping "West" as part of her last name for a very understandable reason.
"Because West is the kids' last name, she plans to keep it too," the source said. "It makes it easier and not confusing for them. They are always going to be a family and family unit. She feels like it's in the kids' best interest to all have the same last name."
It may be worth noting as well that Kardashian's beauty line is named "KKW," so it could be a little awkward if those were no longer her initials—though of course it wouldn't be the end of the world.
It also sounds like keeping her current name won't act as any sort of painful reminder for Kardashian, since she and West are apparently quite good friends these days. "Kim has been supporting Kanye and they are getting along," the source added. "Things are a lot less tense than they have been in a while."
The ex-couple recently proved this tenfold when they recreated a wedding scene for West's listening party for new album Donda. Kardashian appeared in a Balenciaga wedding dress, and walked towards West while organ music could be heard in the background. If anything says "amicable divorce," it has to be the willingness to act out an actual wedding ceremony in front of thousands of viewers.
