Kim Kardashian Said She’d Be “Just As Happy” Giving Up The Cameras And Working As A Full-Time Lawyer
Though Pete Davidson’s now-obsolete “my girl’s a lawyer” tattoo wasn’t exactly accurate since Kim Kardashian has only so far passed the “baby bar” and not the BAR Bar, she revealed in her recent TIME100 interview that she plans to take it in 2025. So look out, world; a barrage of orchestrated pap shots of a bespectacled Kim cracking the books are sure to be on the way! But much to Kris Jenner’s managerial dismay, Kim also said that she could be happy giving up filming her every gynecology appointment and editing her trapezius muscles out of “candid” shots to just focus on being a lawyer and continuing her criminal justice reform work. “Mmmmhmmmm,” said everyone.
According to People, Kim was a guest at the TIME100 Summit yesterday to talk about her businesses and future plans–which include eventually maybe stepping away from the cameras and squeezing her ass into dresses she has no business wearing and instead focusing on lawyering.
The reality star, 42, got candid about her future in the criminal justice reform movement while speaking at the TIME100 Summit on Tuesday, sharing that it is something she can envision putting at the forefront of her career.
While not yet an official lawyer, The Kardashians star shared with moderator Poppy Harlow that she hopes her efforts in the movement will be “her life’s most meaningful work.”
Wait, she doesn’t think her smash single “Jam (Turn It Up)” is up there on her list? And if you heard Satan screaming, “help me, I’m pooooor!” rattling through a sleepy Calabasas, it’s because Kim’s been joking with Kris about stepping away from the spotlight to just do lawyer stuff.
“I hope so,” she said. “I always joke with my mom — who’s my manager — I say Kim K. is retiring, and I’m just going to be an attorney.”
“I would be just as happy being an attorney full time,” she answered, when asked if she would ever consider a life without being in the camera’s eye.
“The journey just really opened up my eyes so much,” she shared. “It gets overwhelming because there’s so much to be done … I brought my sister Khloé [Kardashian] to a prison for the first time last week, and that was really eye-opening for her.”
Kim does deserve some credit for having a hand in getting Alice Marie Johnson’s sentence commuted; but let’s not forget it was because Donald Trump was president at the time and probably agreed to it because of Kim’s fame and his finding her fuckable, so maybe she shouldn’t hang up the superficial part of her existence entirely.
The SKIMS founder’s reform work began in October 2017 after learning about the case of Alice Marie Johnson, who had been in prison since October 1996 after being convicted for helping facilitate communications in a drug trafficking case.
After Johnson was released from prison in August 2020, Kardashian continued to advocate for other wrongfully convicted inmates; most recently including asking for the temporary release of a jailed father whose daughter was killed in the tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
Here’s the long interview, queued up to the Alice Johnson/lawyer stuff parts:
Maybe Kim could eventually become a justice of the peace and be a one-stop shop for the impulsive marriages of her endless gaggle of hangers-on. Or, as the saying goes: “If you want to change the world, go home and FREE SUSHI AND SAKE FROM THE GARAGE!”
