Kim Kardashian doesn’t want the money and fame to go to her children’s’ heads as they grow up with the finer—if not finest—things in life. The reality star and business mogul sat down with Van Jones to talk about a number of topics, including the USC scandal where rich and in some cases famous parents have bribed their kid’s way into college.
“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 any way,” Kim said of her children. “That’s what I see is not appropriate…I want my kids to be as grounded as possible. To buy your way into something just wouldn’t benefit anybody.”
The 38-year-old mother of soon-to-be four young children said that she’s moving full steam ahead to becoming an attorney, even though she hasn’t obtained a bachelor’s degree. The goal has caused her to have to leave her children “a few days a week” to go to the office, and when she is home she said she’s “studying all the time.” She hopes that her children will one day take note of her sacrifice and get inspired by her efforts.
Now that even more of her time is occupied, Kim admits that Ye has picked up the slack at home while she’s been busy. “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 shares. “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.’ Some people just didn’t really understand how it works, and I think people assume that I’m just prepping for the Bar and not actually studying or going to school.”
