News, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has made a decision to pay five years of rent for Matthew Charles, a former inmate who can not afford housing.

CNN political commentator Van Jones told TMZ in December 2018 that the First Step Act would not have passed "if Kim Kardashian had not gone to the White House to talk to Donald Trump".

He was first sentenced to 35 years in prison in 1996 in light of drug trafficking charges before briefly being released in 2016 due to the Fair Sentencing Act.

Following his release, Charles faced an obstacle with finding where to live because of his past and Kardashian chose to reach out to him.

However, Matthew was forced to return to prison past year after an appeals court overturned a judge's initial ruling. After his release, Charles was invited to the State of the Union as one of Trump's guests.

A thankful recipient of her benefaction has revealed on social media that the mother of three paid five years house rent for him and that though she didn't do it for publicity, he had to thank her publicly.
