Kanye West has truly gone and done it, the 44-year-old rapper has reportedly officially filed to change his name from "Kanye West" to "Ye"!

Kim Kardashian's ex-husband - who recently put on quite the shows at a few exclusive listening parties for his new Donda album - has reportedly changed his name, citing "personal reasons" in the court documents filed in Los Angeles.

It comes almost three years after the mercurial music star, fashion designer and presidential hopeful tweeted about changing his name, after releasing an album titled Ye.

At the time, he referred to "the being" formally and formerly known as Kanye West before announcing: "I am YE."

As well as being an abbreviation of his current name, the 44-year-old has previously said the new moniker has religious significance for him.

"I believe 'ye' is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means 'you,'" West said in 2018, discussing his album title with radio host Big Boy.

"So I'm you, I'm us, it's us. It went from Kanye, which means the only one, to just Ye - just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything."
