Kanye West says he believes people don’t want to see Kim Kardashian become a lawyer.
The 44-year-old artist says he thinks people are scared of the positive effect she could have.
“That shirt gets a little bit higher. The cleavage gets a little more covered up,” he said.
Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) made his second appearance on N.O.R.E. & DJ EFN’s “Drink Champs” podcast on Thursday, during which he said he believed there were people who were invested in making sure Kim Kardashian didn’t become a lawyer because of the influence she has on young women.
The 44-year-old artist began his appearance on the podcast by discussing his attempts to aid the legal case of the former gang leader Larry Hoover, who is serving a life sentence in prison for murder. Then he moved on to Kardashian’s desire to become a certified lawyer.
“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. It’s 14-year-old girls, 17-year-old girls that are posing a little bit they want to become a lawyer,” he told the podcast.
“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,” he added.
Ye also suggested that some of the lawyers that Kardashian trained with during parts of her legal education negatively affected her performance in law exams.
“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,” he continued.
Sam Arlen, a Florida Bar member who Kardashian has previously said was involved in her legal training, did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. Kardashian first tagged Arlen in a tweet on May 29, after she’d already failed her bar test.
Kardashian told Vogue magazine in 2019 that she planned to take the California state bar exam in 2022 and was putting in 18 hours a week of supervised study. But in May, during an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kardashian said she’d failed her first-year law exam.
“So, you guys, I did not pass the baby bar,” she said.
In June, during a separate episode of her reality-TV show, Kardashian said she’d failed her first-year law exam for a second time.
The 41-year-old said she was “bummed” about the result, which she said was “a little bit worse” than her first attempt.
“I just have to do better in the future,” she added.
