Kim Kardashian says she would never use privilege to get her kids into college: 'It's not appropriate'
Kim Kardashian feels that it is 'irresponsible' to misuse privilege in order to get children admitted into college. Speaking to CNN's Van Jones in an interview regarding the college admission scandal, the reality star spoke about how she would never let herself be put in a situation where she is bribing to get her kids admitted into college.
She also went on to add that assisting a child this way would be "detrimental to their well-being."
Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were among 33 prominent parents accused of participating in the scheme that involved rigging college entrance exams and bribing coaches at elite universities to get their children admitted.
The duo now each face up to 40 years in prison for allegedly paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Oliva and Isabella, into the University of South Carolina (USC) as crew recruits.
Eonline obtained a clip where the star was quoted "If they couldn't get into a school, I would never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn't thrive in anyway. So that's where I just see that that is not appropriate," she explained.
Kim also stressed the need for her kids to stay grounded. "When you have so much accessible, so many things that are just presented to you, I want my kids to be kind, I want them to be as grounded as possible, and to buy your way into something just wouldn't benefit anybody."
She also hoped that she could inspire her children with the amount of effort that she has been putting into studying law, despite being in her late 30s and attempting to finish college.
"They're (her children) studying, I'm studying, then seeing that I have this film career and samples tested all over my arm while trying to read my flashcards, and all of this stuff, I hope that they get inspired to know that they can put in the hard work."
That she is now dedicating a major chunk of her time studying, much of the responsibility to take care of the kids is now on her husband Kanye West, and the 38-year old says she's grateful for his support and has 'stepped it up' in terms of taking care of the family responsibilities. The duo have three kids; North (5), Saint (3) and Chicago (1)
Kim started off a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer and intends to take the bar in 2022.
