Although the reality star contemplated changing her last name to Kardashian on an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, she “thinks that changing it to Kardashian would be met with backlash. But she wants to be recognized as an independent single woman, and there is just no need to use Jenner.”

The source added, “The timing is also perfect because Kris doesn’t want to be associated with Bruce. The transition to becoming a woman and the fatal car crash just made the decision so much easier for her.”
