Kanye West is petitioning to legally change his name to 'Ye,' citing personal reasons.

In the filing with Los Angeles Superior Court, West aims to change his full name – Kanye Omari West – to just Ye, with no other first name or surname, citing “personal reasons”.

A judge will now need to approve the filing.
