Matthew Charles who had served 20 of his 35 year sentence for a non-violent drug and weapons charges, was the first to be released under new prison reform laws. Charles was denied housing due to his background, and Kim decided to step in to help him get back on his feet.

“Kim reached out privately to Matthew yesterday after hearing 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, exclusively told Us Weekly on Monday, March 11. “He was overwhelmed by Kim’s offer and graciously accepted. Her generosity will allow him to save enough money to eventually put a down payment on a house. It’s truly changed his life.”

Kim came across an article about Charles’ situation which said that he was granted early released in May 2016 by mistake and two years later was ordered to finish out the rest of his sentence. Charles tried to get back on his feet by buying a car and staying with friend, but had a difficult time finding a place to live.

Charles even posted about the great news on Sunday, saying,

“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.”
