Kim Kardashian’s Father Tried To Warn Her That Being A Lawyer Would Be ‘Too Stressful’
Posted on Thursday September 12, 2019
I learned a lot just from him talking to me about [the law] and his opinions. He always knew I was really interested in going to law school. He would say it was way too stressful [to be a lawyer] as a full time job, so I’d really have to think about it.
— Kim Kardashian West, in an interview with PEOPLE, explaining that her interest in the law started at a very young age, when her late father, Robert Kardashian, was working on the O.J. Simpson case. She went on to add, “The ‘Dream Team’ would have meetings at my house, and I was always looking through the evidence books and everything. Kourtney [Kardashian] would always yell at me like, ‘Get out of his stuff! Why do you care?’ I was really into it.” Kardashian is currently studying to become a lawyer without going to law school.
