Kim Kardashian has been declared legally single amid her divorce proceedings with Kanye West.

The ruling also means Kim's dropping 'West' from her last name.

This comes a day after Kanye West changed divorce lawyers.

Kim was on a video call for Wednesday's court hearing, though her lawyer, Laura Wasser, was in court.

Kanye was also absent.

Kanye's lawyer did not object to restoring Kim's single status, although his lawyer said he had three conditions, TMZ reports.

One of which is that any right to get reimbursement of money that's supposed to be divided up will be preserved in case either of them dies and the judge granted that condition.

There were two other conditions the judge rejected, that Kim would not transfer any assets she had in trust, and if Kim remarries she would waive the "marital privilege."

That privilege means a new spouse would not have to testify about communications he had with her.

The judge said no to that.
