Kanye West wants Kim Kardashian to take his last name

kim-kardashian-and-kanye_4007476 The one thing Kim Kardashian is famous for is her name and now it might become a huge problem in her personal life.

Reportedly, her future husband Kanye West wants Kim to drop her last name after they get married and take his. This caused quite a stir in the family, since Kardashians have become a brand and Kim’s mother Kris Jenner doesn’t support Kanye’s idea. She believes her daughter’s name should be Kardashian-West.

A source told The National Enquirer: “Everyone at the table gave a thumbs up, except for Kanye. He sat quiet and stern-faced, then blurted forcefully, ‘She will be known as Kim West. My wife will bear my name only!”

“Kim just couldn’t stop crying because she suddenly realized she’s in for ongoing pressure – not only from Kanye but from Kris, who’ll be livid if she drops the Kardashian name.”

    Yes this was a very pleasant situation I can tell. It is foolish to forget the name that made you a celebrity and that has become a brand. The way Kanye sad his name was much more popular than their would ever be, was very harsh and even offensive for the entire family. I believe the rumors telling about him controlling Kim were true. I believe Kimmy needs to reconsider whom she is marrying to and if she really is willing this. Still, I can understand a man, who wants to give his name to the family. But I also think when there is love and understanding between the partners they will come to the conclusion that will suit both parties. Kardashian-West has a nice ring to it too.

    Well, such conflicts happen not only in the celebrities couples. Many men consider the wife should be wearing his last name and that is. Still in this case this is a matter of two famous names and the names that have become brands. I would have been less tough on Kanye’s place. I do not think it’s a great start for the family life to take the fame from Kim Kardashian. This is simply unfair. His comment was also very rude. I hope he apologizes soon for this. Kin is a very sensitive woman.

    I think that Kanye is perfectly right, his name does holds a lot of respect, and the Kardashian family will never even dream about this kind of respect, as the fame of their family is based on not a very decent behavior. Eventually there is nothing to be proud about being a Kardashian, as nowadays it is a brand, and not a lot of people have forgotten what the real reason that made Kardashian’s famous was. I highly respect Kanye, as he seems to be a man of honor whose word really weights a lot, and I would highly recommend to Kim not even trying to change his mind, as he is a real man with principles, and her argues about it might bring them to split.

    Wow, that was something expectable. I am wondering why is Kim crying that much didn’t she knew whom she is getting married too? Kanye always seemed to be so rough and tough to me, so of course everything in the future family will be or as he said, or it will simply not be at all. And also her mom is pissing me off, like seriously what she was thinking about when she was pressuring her own daughter to go against the will of the future husband. Will she be same happy that her daughter has kept the “valuable” and “respected” Kardashian name but stayed as a single mother? Of course not! So she should stop acting this way and encourage her daughter to do everything for the sake of the future family, instead of turning her against her future husband.

    Well, what can I say Kim, you need to learn to obey to your husband if you really want an everlasting family, otherwise if you will be more concerned with the media or family name (by the way what is so wonderful in the Kardashian name? what are you so proud of about it?) you might lose something that is really important not only to you, but to your child also. I think now after Kim has became a mother she should stop thinking about herself as she was doing before, and start thinking what is better for her and for the child in the first place, because this is exactly what being a mother means. When I gave birth to my baby Melissa everything that was so important for me before in the world has stopped existing and all I was able to think now was my child and my family.
