Paying 5 Years Rent
For Man Released from Jail

Kim Kardashian West is making sure one man recently released from jail will have a roof over his head for the next 5 years — she’s picking up his rent bills — TMZ has confirmed.
Matthew Charles — who had served 20 of his 35 year sentence for drug and weapons charges — was the first to be released under new prison reform laws. Charles recently had his housing application denied because of his background.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us Kardashian heard about Charles’ story and wanted to do what she could to help … so she’s going to pay his rent for the next 5 years.
Charles posted about the good news 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.”
US Weekly — who first reported the story — says Charles plans to save up to buy a home of his own while Kim takes care of the rent bills.
