Kanye West sends fans into meltdown as he debuts new look after changing name

Kanye West has sent fans into meltdown as he debuted a dramatic hair transformation on Instagram.

Posting to Instagram on Monday, the 44-year-old rapper divided fans with his new shaved hair 'do.

Sharing an image of the back of his head with fans, the Donda artist – who legally changed his name to Ye earlier this month – can also be seen sporting a wide neck t-shirt and silver neck chain.

He captioned the post with the Yen currency symbol: "¥".

While Ye appeared to approve of the hair change, it seems his 8.8 million Instagram followers were more divided.

The post has over a million likes but it seems opinions on the rapper's new look were wide-ranging.

While some fans approved of the choice, others shared more humorous actions to the shaved style.

One follower wrote: "Nice cut."

Another joked: "Kanye let his kids cut his hair again."

A third replied: "Watch people start cutting their hair like this now."

Meanwhile, a fourth fan responded: "Wtf Kanye."

"Which barber needa be sued?" another concluded.

The post follows the artist formerly known as Kanye getting his request to change his name approved by a judge in Los Angeles earlier this week.

He also dropped his middle and last names Omari and West to be known as just Ye.

The bipolar star filed the petition to change his name back in August, citing 'personal reasons'.

In court documents, judge Michelle Williams court said: "There being no objections, the petition for change of name is granted."

Ye was also spotted enjoying a dinner date with his estranged partner Kim Kardashian last month, fuelling fan speculation that they may reconcile.
