Kanye West wants to be known simply as Ye.
West, 44, has applied to change his legal name from Kanye Omari West to Ye — according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.
In the documents, West, 44, says his decision for the change is for "personal reasons" — and provides no further explanation.
In order for the change to occur, a judge in California would need to sign off on the petition.

The Phillips Backyard Double Header, the first Vancouver Island event of its kind to require its patrons to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination before entering the venue, has been postponed until 2022.
The two-day event, which was set for Sept. 10-11 at the Phillips Brewing and Malting Co. on Government Street, “was originally conceived to be a celebration of a return to concerts in British Columbia,” the company said in a statement. “Over the course of this week, it has become clear that we will not be able to produce the event we had planned and dreamed of producing.” Rock acts Black Mountain, The Beaches, U.S. Girls and Metz were among the acts expected to perform.
Get Funk’d, another live event set for the same site, is still going forward at Phillips Brewery on Sept. 25, “but will be subject to regulations from provincial health officers” if those details become available, said producer Darryl Mar of the Victoria Jazz Society. “Right now, we are going ahead.”
It is recommended that guests attending the event, featuring The Funk Hunters, be vaccinated prior to entry, “but that is not mandatory,” Mar said.
GET FUNK'D HAS BEEN CANCELLED - In light of recent developments, the Victoria Jazz Society has made the difficult and prudent decision to cancel the “GET FUNK’D” event, which was scheduled to take place at Phillips Backyard on Saturday, September 25.
The VJS is very disappointed about this decision, and hopes to present “GET FUNK’D” as a part of the TD Victoria International JazzFest in 2022, occurring from June 24 to July 3. We look forward to seeing you when all attendees, performers, VJS volunteers, and staff feel that the time is right.
Purchased tickets for “GET FUNK’D” will be refunded at point of purchase.

I am sure it was a difficult decision, but was it really prudent?
