Kim Kardashian surprised audiences (that’s what we are. the audience.) when she announced that she was studying to become a lawyer. The most recent Kardashian surprise is hitting the medical and research industry at UCLA with the Robert G. Kardashian Center for Esophageal Health.

We get used to ridiculing the Kardashians but it’s clear that Robert G. Kardashian was well loved and is sincerely missed. It’s common knowledge that he was O.J. Simpson‘s lawyer during his most infamous case, and so Kim Kardashian wants to follow in his footsteps.

The Reason For This Health Center?

Back in 2003, Robert G. Kardashian passed away of esophageal cancer less than 8 weeks after being diagnosed. He was only 59 years old.

Khloé Kardashian wrote on an Instagram story:
