Kim Kardashian is speaking out for former inmate Matthew Charles.
The reality star took to Twitter on Friday to plead with Nashville landlords, revealing Charles is struggling to find a home.
“Matthew Charles’ lease application was rejected again because of his criminal record (even with me paying his rent in advance),” she wrote.
On Wednesday, Charles was released from prison after serving 20 years of his 35-year sentence after being convicted on non-violent drug charges. After his release, Kardashian promised to pay his rent for the next five years.
According to a report by CMT, Kardashian became aware of Charles’ situation last May when the National Public Radio ran a story about Charles’ return to prison.
After hearing about Kardashian’s offer, Charles took to Facebook to write “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 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.”
Kardashian has been very vocal about her work fighting for prison reform.
