Order in the court! Kim Kardashian has enrolled in law school, says Kanye West
The reality star has made headlines in recent months with her successful pardon of convicted great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson.
It looks like Kim Kardashian is putting her money where her mouth is and taking her quest for criminal justice reforms to a new high. According to her husband, megastar Kanye West, the 37-year-old reality queen “is in law school now” after he was asked about Kim's recent rendezvous with President Trump regarding prison reform in the White House.
Forty one-year-old West revealed to Extra TV about his wife's new adventure at Ralph Lauren’s 50th-anniversary celebration in Central Park on Friday. “I love it, I love it. That’s all we focus on, helping people that don’t have a voice, breaking down the class systems.”
“There’s two million African Americans incarcerated now… We’re going to get people out, period… It’s extremely serious to us," he continued.
Kardashian West shared a Snapchat story last year claiming that her own attorney believed she has all the makings of a lawyer.
“Okay guys, I’m here with my attorney, Mike Kump, who does all of my lawsuits, everything — and listen to what he was just telling me,” she announced.
“You’ve got the perfect instincts, you’ve got great judgment, and you know how to present your position in the most articulate manner and convince people of your point of view,” he allegedly told her. “Will you please join my law firm?”
Kardashian West reportedly told Wonderland magazine back in 2016 that “if things slow down and I had time, I really want to go to law school." Kim attended a listening session in the White House on Wednesday last week - her second visit to the presidential establishment. The session was headed by Jared Kushner, who spoke about the clemency process and prison reform. Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and Kushner's wife, also attended the event.
Kardashian West, who is a now a mother-of-three, shared photos from the talk on Twitter, saying, “It started with Ms Alice, but looking at her and seeing the faces and learning the stories of the men and women I’ve met inside prisons I knew I couldn’t stop at just one. It’s time for REAL systemic change.”
She first met with the commander-in-chief in June 2018 to fight for 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time non-violent drug offender who was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole back in 1996. The White House subsequently announced a few days later that Johnson would be granted clemency.
“Ms Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behaviour and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” a statement from the White House read at the time. “While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.
