Despite keeping up with her advocacy work by visiting prisons and regularly promoting death row appeal petitions on her Instagram stories, Kim may have slowed down on actually nabbing that law degree.

An insider reportedly told The Sun that Kim's legal career is "a pain for [her] right now."

According to the source, the SKIMS mogul struggled with how "tedious" and "never-ending" the law school work was last year.

"She can’t drop it without looking bad, looking like she couldn’t pass it after all the work and all of her talk about how passionate she was about pushing for prison reform," they said.

And with four young kids plus multiple businesses like SKIMS and her SKKN beauty line to contend with, it's no wonder the Kardashians star is being pulled in so many different directions!

The source also claimed that "the biggest problem she has for not being able to progress to the [state] bar exams or dedicate her time to study is Kanye."

"Because he is such an unreliable father at the moment, she can’t count on or rely on him" for help with the kids."

Ye has been under steady public scrutiny for his continued antisemitic remarks and for his allegedly controlling and objectifying treatment of new wife Bianca Censori.

Is Kim Kardashian still becoming a lawyer?

Despite the chatter about putting aside her attorney aspirations, Kim dedicated her 2023 Man Of The Year award to her late lawyer father Robert Kardashian – a hint that she's still looking to develop her legal career.

In April 2023, the American Horror Story actor announced her plans to take the California Bar Exam by early 2025 at the TIME100 Summit.

"I would be just as happy being an attorney full-time and doing that," she said at the time.

"The journey just really opened up my eyes to so much… It gets overwhelming because there’s so much to be done," she added.
