Kim Kardashian West has offered to pay the rent for a former prisoner after he struggled to find accommodation due to his background.

Matthew Charles was recently released from jail after serving 20 years of his 35-year sentence for non-violent drug and weapons charges.

He shared: "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."

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star reportedly reached out to Matthew privately after hearing of his story on social media and made the generous offer, and Matthew will use the money to pay his rent so he can save up for a house in the future.
