Rob Kardashian Law School Claims Denied by USC

 ABC

Rob Kardashian is (maybe) heading back to school.

The reality star, who rose to fame on E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians and went on to finish in second place on the thirteenth season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, tweeted that he would be returning to the University of Southern California to pursue a law degree.

“Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can’t wait!” he wrote. “School just never ends for me! #UnivesityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn.”

The USC Gould School of Law, however, denies having ever received his application.

“Rob Kardashian is not coming here, but we wish him luck at law school,” one tweet, aimed at several gossip outlets, stated. “Rob Kardashian hasn’t even applied to USC Law,” read another.

A rep for the school confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Kardashian has not yet filled out an application. He did, however, previously attend USC’s Marshall School of Business for his undergrad, graduating in 2009.

Kardashian’s desire to step out from under his famous siblings’ shadows has been well documented on the E! reality series.

Whether or not he intends to follow through on the tweet, the announcement indicates that Kardashian hopes to follow in his late father’s footsteps. Robert Kardashian Sr. earned national recognition as pal O.J.  Simpson’s defense attorney during the infamous 1995 trial.

A rep for Kardashian did not immediately return THR’s request for comment.
