Over the summer, Kim Kardashian met Stewart in jail as part of her upcoming documentary with Oxygen, the "Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project.”

The reality star also affected Stewart's reality by penning a letter of support to a DC judge.

“Momolu is a genuine example of the transformation that can take place when a person commits their life to personal atonement and helping to lead others to their own redemption,” Kim wrote.

She continued, "I have been actively involved in cases across the country and in my view, Momolu is especially deserving of your consideration.”
