The 44-year-old musician, record producer and fashion entrepreneur has used Ye as his Twitter username for years and had petitioned a court to make it his full name with no middle or last name. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams approved his request Monday, according to court documents.

“Ye” was also the name of the singer’s 2018 album. That year he told a radio host that he believed that you is the most used word in the Bible, where it means “you.”

Representatives for the artist did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

We apologize, but this video could not be loaded.

The musician recently released his 10th studio album, “Donda,” named after his late mother Donda West. He has been married to reality star Kim Kardashian West for about seven years. The couple are in the process of divorcing, although they remain friendly and have recently been seen together in public.
