Kardashian, who founded shape and loungewear brand SKIMS in 2019 that was recently valued at a whopping $3.2 billion, spoke of her excitement on her latest venture. "The exciting part is to sit down with these founders and figure out what their dream is," Kardashian told the outlet. "I want to support what that is, not change who they are in their DNA, but just support and get them to a different level."

Kardashian's announcement comes on the heels of her recent racy Interview Magazine cover, in which she bared her backside in front of the American flag. The reality star, who is studying to become a lawyer, explained to the publication why she can relate to women behind bars.

"I mean, I probably did some dumb s--- at some point, and I was maybe just a few decisions off of being in a similar situation, any of us could be," she told the magazine after visiting a women's prison learning that many of the incarcerated women, "committed a crime for their boyfriend, or for their husband."
