Kim Kardashian will be taking her soon-to-be husband’s last name, reports TMZ.
Sources close to Kim are adamant … the most famous Kardashian of them all will “for sure” take NBA star Kris Humphries’ last name when the couple ties the knot this summer.
Which might piss off Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner — who recently told Popeater.com, “I don’t think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries … She needs to be Kim Kardashian because she’s worked so hard to get where she is.”

Sean Kingston is going to make a full recovery from his jet ski crash!
Sean Kingston’s injuries from a Miami jet ski crash should be healed in about six weeks, two sources close to the hip-hop artist told CNN Tuesday.
Sean Kingston, 21, suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs, according to the sources, who both asked not to be identified since they were not authorized to speak to the media.
A publicist for Epic Records, which distributes his music, issued a statement Tuesday morning saying Kingston was in “critical but stable condition” in the intensive care unit of a Miami hospital.
Cassandra Sanchez, 23, was riding on the Sea Doo jet ski with Kingston when it crashed into a Miami bridge Sunday night, according to an accident report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Sanchez was also injured and hospitalized.
Kingston had just bought the jet ski days before, as he was moving into a new house in Miami, one of the sources said.
His life vest apparently fell off during the crash, causing Kingston to sink below the water, according to witnesses.
“They were calling us over, telling us, ‘He’s drowning, he’s drowning,’ ” said Carmen Rivera, who was boating nearby with her husband Jonathan Rivera and friend Jimmy Vega. The three rescuers were interviewed by CNN affiliate WSVN-TV.
“We jumped in the water to help him keep his head above water,” Vega said.
“I pushed him up, and he was vomiting what seemed like water, and then there was some blood coming out,” Jonathan Rivera said.
