Johnson was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of drug conspiracy and money laundering. She was divorced, lost her job due to a gambling addiction, lost her house, filed for bankruptcy and her son was killed. She then began working with drug dealers and was arrested, tried and found guilty.

“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 about her decision to help Johnson. “To save someone’s life and do that once a year, then that would make my heart fuller.”
