Kim Kardashian has been declared legally single by a US court following the latest hearing in her divorce proceedings from rapper Kanye West.
The reality TV star will change her name from Kardashian-West back to just Kardashian after a motion was made by a judge in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The reality star, who appeared by videolink at Wednesday’s hearing, made the request for the legal change in December.
The offer to change her marital status was made before details of custody and property were released.
This practice, known as a split in court, often occurs in complicated divorces.
Last month, attorneys representing Kardashian said West had pre-agreed to the split, something the rapper has denied in his own legal filing.
Laura Wasser, representing Kardashian, accused West, who legally changed her name to Ye, of changing her legal representation “strategy” to slow the proceedings.
West’s new attorney, Samantha Spector, admitted on Wednesday that she was involved in the case for “less than 24 hours.”
Rapper formerly represented by Chris Melcher.

Although their legal marital status has been removed, there are still other conditions related to retirement planning and wealth management that still have to be addressed.
