Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian’s half sister has dropped the surname that made her famous. She wants to be known simply as Kendall. The change was first announced on the her modelling agency's website, The Society Management who advertised her as Kendall.
According to Kendall, her fans were just slow to realise that she’s been a single-namer for months.
“I did it last year at all the castings too!” she told US weekly. “I only go by my first name.”
As to why she dropped her surname, Kendall said, “It was just my choice.”
Kendall recently said that her famous last name has not benefitted her career. “People didn’t want to take a chance on me, I think because I was sort of known,” she told Teen Vogue. “They were a little bit on the fence about it. Some people might think that what I’ve done before made it easier for me to get jobs, but it was actually a disadvantage. I had to work even harder.”
