Kim Kardashian has met the ouma she helped free from prison for the first time in person.

The reality TV star has flown to Memphis, Tennessee, to meet Alice Johnson, 63, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1997 on money laundering and drug conspiracy charges.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has spent months working with her legal team to get Alice released on parole after she stumbled across her heartbreaking story online less than a year ago.

Kim, 37, and her lawyer met with US President Donald Trump at the White House last week to discuss executive clemency for the ouma.

As a result, Alice was released from Aliceville tronk in Alabama.

Thanking Kim and Trump for giving her a “second chance” at life, Alice said: “When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying. It was wonderful. I’m so glad she was the one who was able to deliver the news to me. It was a perfect ending.”

Kim previously said it was tough getting a meeting with Trump, but she kept dik, sending a “dozen emails” and phone calls to the White House daily.
