Kanye West says people don’t want ex-wife Kim Kardashian to become a lawyer because of her influence over young women.
Kanye West told podcast hosts that people are against Kim Kardashian becoming a lawyer - because of the effect she has on young women.
The artist, now known as Ye, appeared on N.O.R.E & DJ EFN’s “Drink Champs” podcast on Thursday. Ye discussed his involvement in the legal case of former gang leader Larry Hoover, then moved on to ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s journey to become a lawyer. Kim’s late father, Rob, notoriously defended former NFL player O.J. Simpson in the murder trial of Nicole Brown Simpson.
“I feel like there are people who might not want Kim Kardashian to become a lawyer because you know what happens when Kim Kardashian becomes a lawyer? That shirt gets a little bit higher, the cleavage gets a little more covered up, its 14-year-old girls, 17-year-old girls that are posing a little bit they want to become a lawyer,” he said.
“She affects people in that way and there’s people who don’t want her to affect women in that way. They want her to affect them in that other way.”
Ye went on to suggest that some of the lawyers that Kim Kardashian studied with in preparation for the bar exam were ill-equipped to educate his ex-wife.
“My wife was in a session with the lawyer that was training her, and the lawyer started making bad suggestions and I was like, ‘Man, this dude is an idiot.’ They’ve got an idiot teaching my wife, she gon’ fail the bar a third time,” he said.
“They can put a lawyer who gives you all the right things and just enough wrong things that you just missed your test by this much. You’ll get ‘em next time.”
