The Infamous ‘Duke Porn Star’ Is Officially Done With Porn And Off To Law School

Miriam Weeks was just another college freshman until some anonymous student on a college message board divulged that he’d seen her in a porn video – and that he was even in one of her lecture classes at Duke University. It only took a few days for the news of Miriam “Belle Knox” Weeks to spread, eventually culminating in the media frenzy we all saw five years ago where this poor girl was dragged through the ringer over her choice to star in porn films in order to pay for her $60,000-a-year tuition.

Unfortunately for her parents, they had no idea their daughter was starring in porn and were reportedly “floored” by her decision – however Weeks has since said that they eventually became “absolutely supportive” of her choice.

But really…who gives a shit? We all watch porn, and it’s not going to exist unless there are people out there willing to let jizz crust all over their face for money. People tried turning Belle Knox into a conversation about how expensive college is or how the porn industry uses and abuses women, but the real conversation to be had was much less interesting: she was a girl who wanted to get make bank doing the least-skilled job on earth. How’s that different from any other 18-year-old doing porn?

Eventually all the hype died down, though Weeks still decided to take a college-sanctioned break from Duke in early 2014 (the story originally broke in the fall of 2013) – so what’s happened to her since then?

Well, in June 2014 she wrote an opinion piece for TIME explaining why she lost her financial aid at Duke and chose to turn to porn. Aside from that she was attached as a judge to a reality series called “The Sex Factor,” however as the project began to fall apart and look like complete trash, her name was dropped from the credits.

Other than a few things here and there, Weeks has been laying low trying to graduate with her degree from Duke. You may have thought that doing porn was the dumbest decision she’s ever made, but Weeks has gone on to prove that you can somehow lack both street smarts and book smarts and still fail upwards through life – that’s right, Weeks chose to double major in Women’s Studies and Sociology. All those sucked dicks and busted nuts went towards two nearly worthless degrees that she could’ve got from literally ANY other school that cost less than $60,000 a year. Most people who intend on going to law school major in government and politics, but why take courses related to your future career when you can talk about vaginas and the patriarchy for five hours a week just to get a fluffed-up A- on your final transcript?

Weeks is supposedly now enrolled at New York Law School in Tribecca, however a spokeswoman for the school stated that she would “neither confirm nor deny whether the person about whom you inquired is enrolled or has been enrolled as a student.”

Either way, she’s supposedly attending school under an alias – though that hasn’t stopped her from being recognized in public. According to Page Six, one man who met her for dinner at the San Remo Café in the Village described her as “very loud” and said that she “wouldn’t stop talking about herself.”
