Matthew Charles was released from jail in January.
If there’s one thing Kim Kardashian loves to do with her money it’s getting involved in the US judicial system.
E! News has reported that the 38-year-old has agreed to pay five years of rent for Matthew Charles, a former inmate who was denied housing after being granted clemency.
Charles was initially sentenced to 35 years in prison in 1996 due to drug trafficking charges. He was released in 2016 for a brief period of time before ultimately returning to prison in 2018 after an appeals court overturned a judge’s initial ruling to let him go.
Charles was released again in January, but his application for an apartment complex has been denied.
He revealed on Facebook on Sunday that Kim heard about his situation and was “moved” by it.
“Kim did not do this for attention or publicity, but I had to share it, because it’s to good not to, and my heart is about to burst with happiness, that I wish you to rejoice in this news with me,” Charles wrote on Facebook. “THANK YOU KIM KARDISHIAN-WEST and TRACY FOR THE LOVE SHOWN TO ME WHEN I WAS LOCKED UP. AND NOW THAT I’M FREE.. MY HEART IS ENLARGED.”
