While Kim Kardashian juggles her bustling career and studying law, she says her husband Kanye West has been holding down the fort at home.
According to HotNewHipHop, the reality star, 38, said that West, 40, has been stepping up as she spends 18 hours a week studying to take the bar exam. While Kardashian doesn’t have a Bachelors degree, she is reportedly giving her all to pursuing her next career venture. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stated that she has to leave her children for a few days out of the week to go to the office. When she is home, the star reportedly spends time studying and can’t tend to all of her parental duties throughout the week. Kardashian said that when she is busy, the “Gold Digger” rapper picks up the slack for their three children- North, 5, Saint, 3 and Chicago, 1.
“During the week at night, there’s a lot of time I’m like, ‘Babe, you need to take the kids.’ He’s honestly really stepped it up and I’m so grateful to him for doing that,” she shared in an interview with Van Jones. “I said, ‘You know what. I have my full-time filming job. I have my beauty business. I work full-time and I’m going to take on another 18 hours a week that’s required.'”
Kardashian also opened up to Jones and said that the public doesn’t understand the sacrifices the future mother of four is making by her studies. She said that in addition to studying for the bar, the KKW Beauty creator also has to attend classes to further expand her law education.
West, who has been taking a break from music, has been seemingly supportive of his wife’s passions since she announced she’s pursuing a law career during her cover story for Vogue’s May 2019 issue. The E! star also reportedly already has a job lined up if she passes the Bar exam when she takes it in 2022. The Inquisitr previously shared that longtime attorney Robert Shapiro has offered Kardashian a job at his firm. Shapiro worked closely with Kardashian’s father Robert during the OJ Simpson murder trial.

Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine – It’s never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️
In addition to her praising her husband for his support, Kardashian also reportedly addressed the USC college admissions scandal, which broke back in March. HotNewHipHop shared that Kardashian plans to not use her privilege, fame, or money go to her children’s heads. She also stated that when the time comes for her children to attend college, the mogul would, “never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn’t thrive in any way.”
