Kendall Jenner’s Name Change: Her Parent’s Reaction Revealed
“Bruce isn’t upset at all and Kris doesn’t care — she’s just thrilled at how successful she’s become in the modeling industry. She’s very proud of her,” a Kardashian family friend tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We’re so glad to hear that Kendall has so much support from her family!
“She just wants some independence from her family. Everyone in the business refers to her on a first-name basis, anyway,” a family friend told us EXCLUSIVELY.
“Plus, she thinks it’s cool! She’s always looked up to Twiggy and Giselle, and they’re on a first-name basis, too. It’s really important to Kendall that she make a name for herself on her own and she feels like dropping her last name helps with that goal,” our insider explained.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised Bruce and Kris don’t mind that Kendall dropped her last name? Do you think her name sounds cooler without the ‘Jenner’ attached?
