President Trump will reportedly meet with celebrity Kim Kardashian West on Wednesday to discuss prison reform, according to a Vanity Fair report.

Mrs. West has been advocating for Alice Marie Johnson, a 62-year-old woman who is serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense, Yahoo said. The reality show star reportedly plans on asking the president for a pardon.

The two are also set to meet in the Oval Office with Mrs. West’s attorney and Mr. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. Mrs. West has been in contact with Mr. Kushner — senior adviser to the president — for months to discuss the case and the issue of prison sentencing overall.

Mrs. West’s husband, rapper Kanye West, recently came out publicly in support of Mr. Trump.
