Kim Kardashian is set to travel to Memphis, Tennessee to meet with Alice Marie Johnson today, June 13.
The reality TV star, 37, has advocated on 63-year-old Johnson’s behalf for several months and even met withPresident Donald Trumpon May 30 to ask the commander in chief, 71, to assist in the case. Shortly after the meeting, Trump agreed to commute Johnson’s life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense.
Although Kardashian’s trip to Memphis on Wednesday will mark her first in-person meeting with the great-grandmother, the reality star was the one to notify Johnson of her commutation.
“When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying,” Johnson said during her Thursday, June 7, appearance on Good Morning America. “It was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was the one who was able to deliver the news to me. It was a perfect ending.”
