AceShowbiz - Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly heading back to school to study law following her split from baby daddy Scott Disick. A source has revealed to Heat magazine that the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star is planning to return to education for a while and thinks that now "is the perfect time."
"Kourtney probably doesn't have to work for the rest of her life, but that's not how she rolls," says the source. "She already has a degree [in Theatre Arts and Spanish] but she's always wanted to go back to school and thinks now is the perfect time."
The mother of three, who is now linked to former boxer Younes Bendjima, "nearly signed up last year, but things were falling apart with Scott, so she put it off but really regrets it," according to the insider. "She is in a better place to get her head in the books now."
The 38-year-old reality TV star has opted to study law in honor of her father, late lawyer Robert Kardashian. The insider says that "Kourt is proud of her dad and knows he always wanted her to be a lawyer. She's already looking into doing an online course, so she can still be around the kids."
The source claims that Kourtney's decision to go back to school is part of her resolve to move on from Scott for good. "For so many years, she let Scott suck her energy. Between raising her kids and trying to save him, she never had much time left for herself," the source explains.
"This past year has been all about changing that dynamic - she wants to have passion and direction again," the source continues, before adding that Kourtney "doesn't want to end up wondering, 'What if?' in 20 years time."
