Kim Kardashian Is Paying 5 Years Rent For Former Inmate After He Was Denied Housing
Kim Kardashian and her family might be everything that is wrong with the world, but at least she’s doing some good with her riches. After looking in the mirror and seeing there was literally nothing else she could do to her body, Kim decided it was time to give some money away.
It was recently revealed that the 38-year-old reality star paid Matthew Charles’ rent for the next five years.
Matthew Charles, who had served 20 of his ridiculous 35-year sentence for a non-violent drug and weapons charge, was one of the first inmates to be released under new prison reform laws.
But life outside of prison hasn’t exactly been easy for Charles. His recent housing application was denied because of his background, which is why Kim stepped in to cover him for the next five years.
Kim first heard of Charles’ story through an article posted on Twitter — Charles was first granted early release in May 2016 by mistake — and two years later was ordered to finish out the rest of his sentence. Charles was able to start to get back on his feet by purchasing a vehicle and staying with friends … but had a hard time landing a place to live.
We’re told Kim reached out to Charles and his friend privately Sunday and generously offered to pay his rent and to help him find a stable place to live.
And no, it wasn’t Kim’s people who leaked this story. Charles was the one who posted about her good deed on his Facebook account…
According to insiders, Charles has big plans for the future. He plans to save his money (the money he would have been spending on rent) over the next five years in hopes he can buy a house.
