Kendall Jenner Drops Her Last Name
Kendall Jenner is no longer Kendall Jenner!
According to Us Weekly, Kendall has decided to drop her famous last name, and simply go by Kendall.
Kendall’s modeling agency The Society Management was the first to announce the change on their website’s profile for the 18-year-old Keeping up with the Kardashians star.
Kendall first decided to drop her last name when she made her grand entrance to the modeling world by walking in Marc Jacobs’s fall 2014 show.
It appears as though she is following suit of other famous women including Cher, Madonna, Shakira, and Adele.
While the story is just now breaking, Kendall revealed that she changed her name months ago, but her fans are having a hard time with the adjustment.
“I did it last year at all the castings too!” she said. “I only go by my first name.”
When asked why she decided to go by her first name only, she explained that “it was just my choice.”

Kendall, who is being featured on the September addition of Teen Vogue, said that her famous last name was not working with her modeling career, and she was trying to break out as an individual.
“People didn’t want to take a chance on me, I think because I was sort of known,” she told the publication. “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.”?
