Rapper Kanye West has filed papers to officially change his name to be known simply as Ye.
It comes almost three years after the mercurial music star, fashion designer and presidential hopeful tweeted about changing his name, after releasing an album titled Ye.
The 44-year-old has previously said the new moniker has religious significance for him.
The star is due to release his next album, named after his mother Donda, imminently, although it has already been delayed a number of times.
He is also in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, and has expressed an intention to run for US president in 2024 after attracting 60,000 votes in 2020.
