According to a report from Vanity Fair, Kardashian learned of the plight of 62-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother now serving jail time for a low level offence, and made a decision to lend her star power to the cause.
The target of today's "Hot Topics" roast on The Wendy Williams Show was none other than Kim Kardashian, 37!
"Where I'm at in my life right now, just like, to go and spend my money buying material things just doesn't satisfy me the way that it used to", Kardashian said in an interview with Mic, who reported on Johnson's case in 2017. "And so far, the White House has been really receptive to my calls, and I'm grateful for that", she said.
The branding mogul has been advocating for a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense.
Mrs Kardashian West was moved to ask her longtime personal lawyer, Shawn Holley, to take a look at the case and is paying for a new legal team for Johnson.
He also pardoned vice president Dick Cheney's former chief of staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby.
"I can confirm she'll be here", said Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Last month he granted a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion, after pleas from Sylvester Stallone and Johnson's great-great niece.
Vanity Fair first reported that Kardashian West would be getting an audience with The Donald in order to chat about Johnson's cause célèbre.
And Kardashian West isn't the only one asking the Trump administration for clemency for Johnson.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Kardashian was visiting the White House but would not confirm the people with whom she was meeting.
"Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson".
"We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second chance at life".
"We are praying for mercy in my mom's case... that this nightmare is finally coming to an end", Tretessa Johnson told the BBC.
