Kim Kardashian Paid Five Years Of Rent For A Man Denied Housing After He Was Released From Prison


Apart from being famous for her bodacious booty, Kim Kardashian-West is also an advocate for j*udicial reform. That was made evident when she paid for five years of rent on behalf of Matthew Charles, a former i*nmate that was released from p*rison as a result of his recent c*riminal j*ustice reform, according to The Mind Unleashed.


In December 2018, the First Step Act was approved with overwhelming bipartisan support. That act reduces federal p*rison s*entences for nonv*iolent o*ffenders, like Charles. Though he had to spend more than twenty years in j*ail, the former i*nmate is now a free man. Thanks to Kardashian-West, he has 5 years of free rent ahead of him.

GoodNewsNetwork reports that in 1996, Charles was c*onvicted of d*rug ch*arges. He was s*entenced to 35 years in p*rison, twenty of which he served. In 2018, a j*udge deemed his c*onviction “unfair.” Shortly after he was released, though, Charles went back to p*rison for a second time. But, thanks to the legislation’s approval, he regained his freedom in early January.

Due to his c*riminal background, Charles hasn't been able to receive approval on any of his housing applications. When Kardashian-West learned about his situation, she decided to reach out to the former i*nmate and offered to cover his rent.

“Kim reached out privately to Matthew yesterday after h*earing he was having a hard time getting approved for an apartment and has generously offered to pay five years of his rent,” Tim Hardiman, a senior producer at CMT in Nashville, told US Weekly.


“He was overwhelmed by Kim’s offer and graciously accepted.”

“Kim did not do this for attention or publicity, but I had to share it, because it’s too good not to, and my heart is about to burst with happiness, that I wish you to rejoice in this news with me.”

Kim hasn't issued a formal statement about the kind gesture. Yet, Kardashian-West herself has indicated that she worked with California Gov. Christopher Newsom (D) to end the state’s d*eath p*enalty.
