Kim K. is changing yet another incarcerated person’s life, this time by paying their rent for the next 5 years!
Matthew Charles was recently released from jail after serving 20 of his 35 year sentence for non-violent drug and weapons charges. Under the new prison reform law, he was the first to be released, however, has recently had difficulty finding a home due to his background check.
Apparently Mrs. Kardashian-West heard about Charles’ story and wanted to help, thus she decided to inherit his rent bills for the next couple of years.
The reality TV celeb, found out about the man behind bars through an article posted on Twitter. Charles was first mistakenly released in May 2016, however, was ordered to finish his sentence 2 years later. While Matthew was doing all that he could to get back on his feet, such as purchasing a car and staying with his friends, he was having a difficult time getting a place to stay. Kim came through though!
She reached out to him and his friend after hearing about his story, and generously offered to pay his rent so that he could save up to buy a home of his own.
Ecstatic and in disbelief, Charles tweeted, “I just received the most wonderful news tonight that I just had to share with everyone. Kim Kardashian-West heard about my situation. Was moved and has decided to help me.”
Kim K. doing her own prison reform! You go, girl!
