On Wednesday, Us Weekly confirmed that the reality star and mother of three was headed on another cross-country trip in honor of the recently-released Johson. 

This is the first time the KKW beauty mogul will meet with Johnson, but the 63-year-old said that she first heard the news of her commutation from Kardashian. 

“When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying,” Johnson said during her June 7 “Good Morning America” appearance. “It was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was the one who was able to deliver the news to me. It was a perfect ending.”

The great-grandmother went on to describe hearing the news of her commutation as “a moment [she] will never forget.”

Kardashian took her quest to have Johnson pardoned all the way to the White House. On May 30, the 37-year-old met with President Trump in person in the Oval Office. Following their meeting, on June 6, Trump commuted Johnson’s life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense, enabling her to be released from prison. 

The reality star expressed her gratitude to the president in a tweet which read, “Best news ever!!!! So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion and contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are deserving of a second chance. I hope to continue important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition.”
