Kim Kardashian is a single woman again after nearly eight years of marriage to Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.
In a virtual court hearing on Wednesday, the reality star also officially and legally dropped the surname “West.”
Kardashian, who divorced the rapper last year, made the request to become legally single in December.
The former couple must still settle the property division and custody of their four children.
The ruling on Wednesday, which granted Kardashian’s request for a “bifurcated divorce,” means that the divorce proceedings will be divided into two parts: the first settling her legal name and marital status, which has now been resolved, and the second involving custody and financial assets.
The 41-year-old beauty and television mogul stated in several sworn statements submitted since December that she “very much” desired the end of her marriage.
Ye, 44, who was not present at the hearing, had publicly fought the divorce and pleaded with Kardashian to remarry.
The couple started dating in 2012 and married two years later.
Ye is one of the most well-known names in rap music, with global hits such as Stronger, Jesus Walks, and Gold Digger. He’s also a successful fashion designer.
Kardashian rose to prominence in 2007 as the star of the reality television show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, about her family, and has since launched fashion and beauty lines.
