Kim Kardashian studying to be a lawyer

Published

on

Kim Kardashian West is looking to tap into the pre-reality show family business: she wants to become an attorney.

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” told us that she’s actively studying to become a lawyer and plans to take the bar exam in 2022. In fact, last summer she began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco.

Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, was a top-notch attorney in Los Angeles and was on O.J. Simpson’s so-called “Dream Team” of lawyers when he stood trial for the murders of his wife and her friend.

Kim’s desire to become a lawyer stemmed from her much-publicized help in freeing Alice Marie Johnson from prison last year. Prior to Alice’s freedom, Kim met with President Trump to discuss Alice and prison reform. 

“I had to think long and hard about this,” she says of her decision to pursue law.

In recalling her meeting with Trump, Kim said, “I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, s—. I need to know more.”

She continued, “I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

Kim has been told in the past by her own attorneys that she has what it takes to become a lawyer.

The mother of three, by the way, is not planning to attend law school, and hopeful attorneys are not required to go to law school prior to taking the bar exam, although it is strongly suggested.

Kim has one prominent supporter in her ranks in the form of CNN commentator and activist Van Jones, who was in the Oval Office with Kim last May when she argued for Alice’s clemency. 

“Kim Kardashian wound up playing this indispensable role,” Van told Vogue, stating Trump was very nervous about releasing convicted felons. “I watched Kim Kardashian unleash the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention that I’ve ever seen in American politics.”

“Kim understood that he needs to be seen as taking on the system, and she helped him to see that there are people who the system was against and that his job was to go and help them,” Van continued. “And it was remarkable. So for people who have fallen for this media caricature of the party girl from ten years ago who hangs out with Paris Hilton? This is the daughter of an accomplished attorney and the mother of three black kids who is using her full power to make a difference on a tough issue and is shockingly good at it.”

Jordyn Woods says she will “Always have love for Kylie”

Published

on

Jordyn Woods is hesitant to come right out and say it, but the message is very clear … she’s still got love for Kylie Jenner.

Jordyn and her mom, Elizabeth, were at LAX Thursday when we asked Jordyn if the support she’s received from Jada Pinkett Smith and family helped her through her ordeal with the Kardashian-Jenner fam … she tells us it’s bigger than that. Much bigger.

It gets real interesting, though, when our guy asks if she hopes to rekindle her friendship with Kylie — she gives a rather broad answer … before Mom comes to the rescue.

Check it out for yourself … Jordyn eventually says she’ll “always” love her former BFF, but it takes some coaxing. Her mother’s much more direct.

Regardless, Jordyn’s fallout with Kylie has only made her more popular. Girl’s signing autographs and posing for pics everywhere she goes … even when it’s not a celebrity hot spot.

IRS set to audit Lori Loughlin and her husband over college admissions scandal

The hits just keep coming. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, who are facing up to 40-year-prison sentences if found guilty of their alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal, will now be audited by the IRS.

According to the source, the twosome allegedly wrote off William “Rick” Singer’s reported scam services as a deduction. “They are being audited for five years on their personal income taxes, along with three years for Mossimo’s business,” the insider reveals.

The When Calls the Heart actress, 54, and the fashion designer, 55, pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and money laundering on Monday, April 15, after previously rejecting a plea deal that included a two-year minimum prison sentence.

“Her attorney told her not to take the deal,” a source said earlier this month about Loughlin’s decision.

Legal coach and crisis manager Wendy Feldman explained in April that the actress and designer had “no choice but to plead not guilty.”

“They missed the opportunity for a plea bargain during the first round, and now there might not be a deal available for them to take,” she said.

The actress previously seemed to be “in denial” about her situation, and recently started to accept her reality. “Lori is constantly arguing with Mossimo, because she is beginning to grasp that they are in very serious jeopardy,” the source also added, “She  has tried to hire new lawyers.”

The pair were indicted after allegedly paying Singer a bribe of $500,000 in order to have their two daughters, Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, represented as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, despite the fact

that neither girl participates in the sport, ensuring their entrance to the school.

Mossimo was arrested on March 12 along with actress Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty to charges of fraud on April 8, while Loughlin was taken into custody on March 13. Both were released the same day of their arrests on $1 million bonds.

There were also armed guards standing outside the building where Thursday’s procession will end.

That procession will be preceded by Nipsey’s Celebration of Life, hosted at Staples Center for 21,000 fans, family and friends. As we reported … the free tickets were gobbled up within minutes and AXS, which handled ticket distribution, says it’s cracking down on scalpers. 

The event will be heavily guarded … with help from LAPD, members of the Nation of Islam as well as Staples Center personnel.
