Kim Kardashian shares adorable Kanye West throwback ahead of legal award for prison reform work.
Kim is set to be honoured with a prestigious legal award for her prison reform work, but before celebrating she posted a picture of herself and Kanye. Ever the sentimental type the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star posted up a throwback of her smiling flirtatiously at her then-friend and now husband Kanye. Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘Always had [eyes emoji] for him.’ The picture was taken around 2011 when the pair were still said to be platonic, and Kanye helped Kim and her sisters with the opening of their Dash boutique in New York City.
Of course, things have changed now and the pair have been married now since May 2014 and share three children together. Kim’s social media activity comes as it was reported that the reality TV star would receive the Women Leadership in Law Award along with her lawyer Shawn Holley. The accolade comes after they successfully petitioned US President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of non-violent drug offender Alice Marie Johnson, which led to the First Step Act being passed.
According to TMZ.com, the pair will be handed their awards, sponsored by The California Lawyer and the Daily Journal, at a conference in Beverly Hills in May. The 38-year-old and her attorney were sent letters praising them for their ‘life-changing’ work. They were told: ‘You both are truly inspirational, and your work has been life-changing.’ It is very likely that Kim will continue such work as she is working on getting a law degree and has already been offered a law job with OJ Simpson’s attorney Robert Shapiro.
Shapiro, like Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian Snr, was a part of OJ Simpson’s famous legal team during his 1995 murder trial. OJ was acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown, and her friend Ron Goldman. Kim didn’t finish college but she’s found a way to fulfill her legal ambitions by taking up an apprenticeship at a law firm, which the state of California allows.
