“On May 1 at midnight, KKW Fragrance will be shutting down the website so that we can relaunch fragrance in the future under a brand new name— and under a new web store where you can purchase from all beauty categories under one site,” Reality star Kim Kardasian, 41, tweeted on Friday, April 1.
Kardashian noted that her scents are “deeply personal” as she marks the next chapter with the brand.
“I put my heart and soul into every bottle, and I’m so incredibly proud of every KKW Fragrance product and collaboration we launched since Crystal Gardenia in 2017,” she continued. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your loyalty and love these last few years. I cannot wait to introduce you to the next chapter of my fragrance journey—I promise I won’t be gone too long.”
The company change comes after the beauty mogul was recently declared legally single amid her split from Kanye West. Kardashian, who shares children North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2, with West, 44, initially filed for divorce in February 2021 following nearly seven years of marriage.
Later that year, the California native moved on with Pete Davidson after working together on Saturday Night Live in October 2021. One month later, Kardashian filed paperwork requesting to be declared legally single and restore her last name.
“The parties’ marriage has irremediably broken down. [Kardashian] no longer desires to be married to [West],” legal documents obtained by Us Weekly in December 2021 stated, noting that there was “no possibility of saving” the marriage. “There is no question that the parties’ marriage is no longer viable. [Kardashian] has no desire to reconcile with [West] and wants their marriage terminated.”
At the time, West revealed that he would like to rekindle his relationship with Kardashian. “We’re not even divorced,” the rapper said during Revolt’s “Drink Champs” appearance in November 2021. “So how we—because [it’s] no joke to me, my kids want their parents to stay together. I want their parents — I want us to be together.”
The businesswoman, for her part, later reflected on trying to choose herself while adjusting to the significant changes in her life.
“For so long, I did what made other people happy. And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy,” she shared with Vogue in February. “And that feels good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you.”
Kardashian noted that she was excited to see what would unfold for her in the future, adding, “My 40s are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy.”
The following month, the Us confirmed that a judge declared Kardashian legally single amid her divorce proceedings with the Yeezy designer. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum has since dropped West from her legal name and all of her social media accounts.
A source exclusively told Us that Kardashian is “pleased” with her single legal status, saying, “It’s a positive step forward in the divorce. Even though other issues are still being disputed, it’s a huge weight off her shoulders.”
