Remember Belle Knox? The Young Woman Who Paid Her Way Through Duke University By Doing Porn? Well, She's Off To Law School!

The 22-year-old brainbox, who put herself through Duke University in North Carolina, by becoming a adult film actress star, is now a student at New York Law School in Tribeca, sources say.

Knox, whose real name is Miriam Weeks, is believed to be using another alias as she prepares to be a legal eagle. But the student is not secretive about her sordid past, which was caught the public imagination so much that it was turned into a docudrama called “From Straight A’s to XXX” which was released last year. She has also been interviewed by Piers Morgan and appeared on a host of other high profile shows where she had defended her job.

When asked for a comment, New York Law School refused citing the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, adding it would “neither confirm nor deny whether the person about whom you inquired is enrolled or has been enrolled as a student”.

It worked! I actually remember when this story first broke and Belle had to go on Twitter to confirm she was in fact the woman at Duke doing porn on the side to pay the bills. People at the school were on their high horse judging her left and right, meanwhile their parents were deciding what color their next yacht was going to come in. We’re not here to judge one bit, and I actually respect the fuck out of the move. Money is money and when you have your sights set on something way more important (becoming a lawyer) then who cares how you get there. Do porn for a few years and if your friends or family are too embarrassed to support you then fuck em (worth noting her parents fully supported the move). Not actually though, don’t fuck them..

If your parents aren’t some oil fortune recipients and you go to Duke, where 99% of the people wear Patagonias and Vineyard Vines 24/7, you’re going to need a source of real cash to survive. Duke’s yearly tuition is around $60,000 and that’s not easy to come by. Her story even got made into a Life Time movie when she retired a few years ago.

Now she’s graduated from Duke and is headed to law school in New York. Me personally, I’m not the biggest fan of Belle Knox’s work, I’m more of a Layla London guy personally, but if you’re curious…here are some links.
