A source close to the situation told Page Six Kanye asked his wife to “bring this to the president’s attention.”
Kardashian, 38, has worked closely with Donald Trump on prison reform in the US over the past year, and West has also been very supportive of the president.
Sources say the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star first contacted the White House two weeks ago, when news first broke of Rocky’s detainment, to “see if there was anything that can be done to release him.”
According to TMZ, Kardashian spoke to Trump senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who took the matter to the president.
Apparently West and Kardashian have been “very concerned” over reports that Rocky has been placed in a facility with “inhumane conditions” and was being “treated poorly,” adding that the couple is “very hopeful that the Swedish government will release him soon.”
