Rob Kardashian is following in the footsteps of his famous father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr., after the 25-year-old former "Dancing With The Stars" contestant tweeted that he's headed to law school at the University of Southern California.
"Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can't wait! School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn," the reality TV star and kid brother of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian tweeted Monday night.
Kardashian's career choice echoes that of his late father, who is famous for helping O.J. Simpson get acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. The elder Kardashian, a personal friend of the football legend, was a part of the superstar attorney team that included Johnnie Cochran, Barry Scheck and F. Lee Bailey.
Rob Kardashian's father attended the University of San Diego for law school, but was a Trojan like his son as an undergraduate.
Rob Kardashian's decision to attend law school is a departure from the rest of his family's penchant for haunting reality television, although Rob is seen on his sisters' shows as well as "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." He also appeared on "Dancing With The Stars," coming in second on the hit ABC show's 13th season.
The 25-year-old's tweet gained the approval of his fans.
Kardashian had been romantically linked to R&B singer Rita Ora, but the entertainer denied that they're an item.
"It's not really a relationship. It's not that intense. He's a cool guy. We're close. We're good friends. I got his back and he's got mine," she said, according to starpulse.com.
Other Twitter users are supporting Rob as he attends USC's Gould Law School next month, with one female attorney offering assistance with his studies.
Rob Kardashian graduated from USC's Marshall School of Business in 2009.
Kim Kardashian called the occasion "a proud day" on her blog at celebuzz.com.
"My brother Robert graduated from USC! My father went to USC, my aunts, uncles, cousins and even my boyfriend all went to USC. And now my baby brother is SC alumni! I'm so proud that he went to USC and finished in four years! He has honestly grown up so much and learned a lot along this journey of his, and our family is so proud of him!" she wrote at the time.
