Kim Kardashian Will Reportedly Pay 5 Years' Rent For A Former Inmate After He Was Denied Housing
"Kim did not do this for attention or publicity, but I had to share it ... My heart is about to burst with happiness."
It's no secret that Kim Kardashian West has been vocal in the past about her views on criminal justice and prison reform in the United States.
Last May, Kim met with President Trump to discuss pardoning Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who was serving a life sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offence.
Now Kim has pledged to help another former inmate: Matthew Charles, who was released from prison in January after serving 20 years of his 35-year sentence for a nonviolent drug offence.
According to several reports, Kim has offered to help the man find a stable place to live and will pay his rent for 5 years while he saves money in order to buy a home.
A representative for Kim Kardashian West has been contacted for comment.
