Kim Kardashian West and Alice Marie Johnson have finally met. On Wednesday, Kim trekked to Memphis to meet Johnson for the very first time after months of letters and phone calls.
Kim and her attorney, Shawn Holley took a private plane from L.A. to Memphis to meet Johnson and her family.
Camera’s caught Kardashian as she made her way up to the Johnson residence. Once inside the two embraced and sources say it was quite an emotional gathering.
According to reports they talked about Kim and Shawn’s efforts that eventually got Alice out of prison.
Kim also posted a video on Snapchat of she and Johnson.
As previously reported — the Selfish author, 37, has advocated on 63-year-old Johnson’s behalf for several months and even met with President Donald Trump on 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.”
