Kim Kardashian to Pay 5 Years of Rent for Former Inmate Who Was Denied Housing

While the headlines have been rather quiet, Kim Kardashian hasn’t stopped her quest for criminal justice reform.

Matthew Charles, a former inmate who was denied housing after being granted clemency, took to Facebook to reveal that Kim “heard about my situation” and was “moved” by it.

Kim was so moved that she quietly helped him find a place to live AND paid for five years of his rent.

“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,” Charles wrote on the social media platform. “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.”

According to the Nashville Tennessean, Matthew was released on Jan. 3 as a part of Donald Trump’s First Step Act.

In the months following Charles’ release, he reportedly has been staying with a friend and has been working. He even attended the State of the Union in February. His application for an apartment complex, however, was denied on March 7.

US Weekly — who first reported the story — says Matthew plans to save up to buy a home of his own while Kim takes care of the rent bills.
