Kim Kardashian West helps death row inmate Rodney Reed as Kanye performs in Houston prison

Kim Kardashian West felt “extremely emotional” when Rodney Reed was granted a 120-day stay of execution.

The 39-year-old reality TV star was present when the death row inmate – who was originally set to be executed later this month – was given a stay of execution.

In a teaser clip from an interview with the ‘Today’ show, Kim was asked about Reed’s reaction to the verdict and she shared: “It was emotional. It was extremely emotional. And he said, ‘Praise Jesus.’”

The stay of execution means that Reed – who was convicted of murder 21 years ago, but has always protested his innocence – will have his case reviewed by a court.

Meanwhile, Kim recently revealed that she felt “honored” to meet with Reed.

The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star was thrilled to come face-to-face with the man she has been campaigning to get released from prison after he insisted he has evidence to prove his innocence. She wrote on Twitter:

“Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room at that moment. That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney’s case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms

“We have heard people all around the globe speak up. And all because of a deep belief that every man or woman accused of a crime – especially one punishable by death – deserves the chance to have all available evidence considered

Meanwhile, her husband Kanye West performed for inmates in a Houston Prison last Friday (15.11.2019). According to a report on CNN, Kanye West left inmates in tears when he performed a surprise concert at the Harris County jail in Houston, Texas.

The Grammy award-winning rapper and his choir performed songs from his gospel album “Jesus is King” on Friday as inmates waved their hands and knelt in prayer.
West said his visit was “a mission, not a show,” according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
West performed for more than 200 male inmates before using an underground tunnel to access a separate jail to perform for a smaller crowd of women inmates.
