kendall jenner last name modeling Kendal Jenner drops her last name professionallyIs Kendall Jenner trying to distance herself from her famous family? The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star has dropped her last name as her modeling career continues to take off.

But that’s old news, Jenner tells Us Weekly. “I did it last year at all the castings too! I only go by my first name.”

Her reasoning? “It was just my choice,” she tells the magazine.

The change was brought to the public’s attention when someone noticed that Jenner’s modeling agency, The Society Management, has a profile for simply “Kendall” (no last name).
