Other big developments in Kanye West’s life

The rapper’s name change is just one of several recent big shifts in his life: His wife, Kim Kardashian, filed for divorce back in February after the pair, who share four young children, had reportedly been living apart for some time. This news took the internet by storm on its arrival as the couple had been together for a while and seemed pretty rock solid to the ground.

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.
