Amid Pete Davidson Dating Rumors, Kim Kardashian West Files to Legally Drop Kanye West's Last Name and Change Marital Status to Single.

Kim Kardashian West has taken the next step in her divorce from Kanye West.

Despite rumors that she is dating Pete Davidson, the reality star filed to legally change her name and marital status nearly a year after filing for divorce.

The reality star filed for divorce from her husband, Kanye West, after seven years of marriage.

North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm are the names of the celebrity couple's four children.

Kardashian West did not request a legal name change when she filed for divorce.

It was speculated that she wanted to keep her surname the same as that of her children.

It's also worth noting that when Kardashian West married her previous husband, Kris Humphries, she didn't take his last name.

Kardashian West married Damon Thomas, a music producer, when she was 19 years old.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for legal restoration of her maiden name on December 10th, indicating that she will no longer use West's surname.

According to TMZ, she also requested that her marital status be changed to single.

Given that Kardashian West filed for divorce nearly a year ago and has been dating comedian Pete Davidson since October, the timing of her move is particularly intriguing.

On the November 4 episode of Revolt TV's Drink Champs, Kanye West discussed Kim's relationship with the Saturday Night Live star.

West insisted on calling Kardashian West his wife.

"There's no paperwork for my wife because she's still my wife," West said (via E! News).

"SNL made my wife say, 'I divorced him,' just to get that bar off," the rapper explained.

"And I've never seen the papers; we're not even divorced," she says.

West also stated that he does not wish to divorce his wife.

"That ain't no joke to me," he stated emphatically.

"My children want their parents to stay together, and I want to be with them."

Kardashian West's beauty brand website went offline shortly after she filed for divorce in February and has yet to relaunch.

After the initials of her full married name, Kim Kardashian West, the billionaire's beauty line is called KKW Beauty.

Fans assumed the reality star was rebranding because she intended to change her name after her divorce.

In interviews, however, Kardashian has stated that she wants to unify her brand and make all of her products (including shapewear, fragrances, and cosmetics) under one label.

Kanye West gave her the idea to streamline and relaunch, according to her.

In an October interview with the Wall Street Journal, Kardashian West said, "He expressed that there were too many branding situations."

"I really wanted to condense my beauty brands, and I wanted one place, one website, where everything could live," she says.

Despite the fact that the interview took place months after her divorce was finalized, Kardashian West praised her husband, saying, "Kanye will always be the most inspirational person to me."
