The hopes and dreams that fans all over the world had of “Kimye” rekindling their love and solving their marital issues have been crushed once again after news broke that Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West are still going ahead with their divorce.

Kanye is known for his eccentric creativity, absurd fashion styles and outstanding on-stage performances which have had his fans questioning his mental and emotional wellbeing in the past.

Recently, the star had his fans concerned once again after taking to social media to share his new hairdo with his 8.8 million followers.

Kanye’s haircut is an unusual design which has left most of his head covered in some hair, while other parts of his head are completely shaven and bald.

The haircut comes after news broke that the 44-year-old producer has officially changed his name from Kanye West to “Ye”, after a judge reportedly signed off on the star’s petition at a Los Angeles court, according to TMZ.

The star has wanted the name change since 2018 after taking to Twitter to post: “The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.”

The father of four explained in an interview that he wants to be referred to as “Ye” because it is a shortened version of his name, but it is also a word that is used throughout the Bible.

Here is what fans had to say about Ye’s new hairdo:

TMZ recently reported that court documents filed last Tuesday show that the separating couple is in the process of splitting their estate and that Kardashian-West will be getting the $60 million (R888 million) home which she and the rapper shared together, and which Kim has been staying in with their four children since filing for a divorce last year.
