美国说唱歌坎耶·韦斯特（中文昵称“侃爷”）申请改名为“Ye（耶）”获得洛杉矶法院批准。这意味着此后他的全名为Ye，没有姓氏和中间名。此前“侃爷”向法院提交申请，希望将他的全名从坎耶·奥马里·韦斯特（Kanye Omari West）改为Ye。

The singer Kanye West will from now on formally be known simply by the name Ye.
Judge Michelle Williams granted the change on Monday in a California courthouse, after the rapper filed a petition to change his name in August, documents seen by CNN confirm.
The musician hinted at the change as far back as 2018, when he released his studio album \"Ye,\" and then several months later tweeted: \"the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE.\"
In an interview shortly after the album’s release, he said “Ye” was a reference to a biblical term for “you.”
The rapper\'s name change is just one of several recent big shifts in his life: His wife, Kim Kardashian West, filed for divorce back in February after the pair, who share four young children, had reportedly been living apart for some time.
The musician also released his highly anticipated album \"Donda\" in August. It debuted at the top of Billboard\'s Top 200 albums chart, making him only the seventh artist to have 10 number 1 albums, according to Billboard.
