RadarOnline.com reports that the Keeping up with the Kardashians star is going by her first name only because she believes she’s famous enough!
“Kris will only use her first name professionally,” a source told the website. “She thinks she can pull it off because the entire world knows who she is.”
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.”
After being involved in a car crash that left one woman dead, Kris dropping her last name could be the least of Bruce’s worries! The insider added that he “could not care less what last name she uses. They aren’t on good terms at all right now, even after the car accident.”
Bruce’s daughter Kendall also dropped her last name. The 19-year-old goes by her first name only when it comes to her modeling career to avoid favoritism in the industry.
