Kanye West reportedly wants to change his name to Ye after divorcing Kim Kardashian. He is said to have made an application in court.
Rapper Kanye West, 44, apparently only wants to be known by his stage name Ye. In Los Angeles, he is said to have submitted an application to the court. The US website “TMZ” shows a document on which it can be seen that the name Kanye Omari West is to be changed to Ye. The “People” magazine should also have documents according to which Kanye West should have decided to change its name “for personal reasons”.
Shortly after the release of his album “Ye”, Kanye West announced on Twitter in 2018: “I’m Ye.” In a radio interview he said of the album’s title: “I think ‘Ye’ is the most common word in the Bible and in the Bible it means ‘you’. So I am you, I am we, we are. Kanye, which means something like ‘the only one’, became Ye, “” Billboard magazine quoted him as saying.
