Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially over, after Kim filed divorce papers Friday. Now, everyone’s wondering who she’s going to date next, and what she’s going to do about her last name, which she officially changed to Kim Kardashian West after marrying Kanye almost seven years ago.
She uses West in her KKW Beauty branding, so completely dropping it could be tricky. For now, her social media handle remains @kimkardashian and her name appears as Kim Kardashian West.
Others wonder who she’s going to date. Insiders tell E!: “Kim isn't ready to date and is not focused on dating yet. She's had a rough year and wants to focus on herself and her kids right now.”
Meanwhile, Nicholas Braun hasn’t gotten the memo. He posted an IG video addressing her new single status. “This Kim and Kanye divorce news is just bumming me out. God damn. … It hurts to think about how they’re feeling and how she’s feeling,” he said in the clip. “I mean, I’m wondering at this point, where do they even go from here? Where does she go … at this moment? ‘Cause she’s been through three marriages now and it’s like, are you willing to even take a shot on a new guy at this point? Would you be down to meet a new person, totally just kind of different guy? One who could, you know, make you laugh a little bit or make you feel small cause he’s so tall.”
BREAKING HER SILENCE
Speaking of social media, after an unusual two-day period of quiet following the filing of divorce, Kim broke her silence to celebrate her BFF Jonathan Cheban‘s birthday on Sunday. She shared several images from the festivities. She poked fun at momager Kris Jenner, who was wearing head to toe logo-ed Dior. “Who makes your outfit?” she asked sarcastically. “It's really hard to tell.”
On Monday, she posted a sweet tribute to her late father, writing: “Happy Birthday Dad! I celebrate you every single day but today even more. So much to tell you! I called your cell phone number just wondering if anyone would pick up after all these years. I actually can’t believe I remembered it. Please come visit me in a dream soon. 🙏🏼Also can you pretty please send down a sign in the form of those symbols/birds we always talked about?!?! I just miss you sooooo much!”
Kris, meanwhile, appears to done with managing her daughters’ businesses and is ready to branch out on her own. The 65-year-old filed papers to launch her own beauty empire, trademarking “Kris Jenner Beauty,” “Kris Jenner Skin” and “Kris Jenner Skincare.”
