Kanye West was spotted with a new look while visiting Venice, Italy. The 44-year-old rapper performed at the wedding of Géraldine Guyot and Alexandre Arnault, the second oldest son of LVMH chairman and CEO, Bernard Arnault. Kanye also debuted his latest haircut on Instagram. The rap mogul’s new look also comes with a new name. ET has learned that Kanye’s request to change his name to Ye has been granted by the Los Angeles courts.
The new look arrives just hours after it was announced that West had legally changed his name to Ye, with no middle or last name. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams approved the move Monday, just two months after the 44-year-old revealed he’d filed a petition to officially swap out his birth name of Kanye Omari West.
Kanye previously hinted at changing his name following the release of his 2018 album Ye, writing on Twitter, “the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.”
