PARIS Hilton thinks people “underestimate” Kim Kardashian West.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently studying to become a lawyer, and her close pal Paris has said she’s sure Kim will excel in the profession as she’s “always” been someone that “cares about others”.

She said, “She’s always been such a brilliant person. She’s always been so organised, she’s always cared about others, and I could see her being a brilliant lawyer, for sure.”

Kim has already helped several people serving life sentences for drug offences get their sentences commuted, and 38-year-old Paris has praised her friend for being “really brave” in making a “difference to people’s lives”. – BANG!
