Kanye West is a force to be reckoned with. The star has been in the game for more than 15 years, though for many it's hard to remember the entertainment industry without him in it. While he's known for his many talents, including his producing and rapping, he's also known for his controversial moments, which many believe may have led to his split from Kim Kardashian, and which have only continued with the release of his much-anticipated album 'Donda.'
Now his name change is finally official: a judge has signed off on the star's petition to officially change his legal name to "Ye," TMZ reports. He won't have a middle or a last name either. Kim Kardashian still has "West" attached to her name, however, but apparently she intends to keep it.
