Kim Kardashian is keeping up with her prison reform mission. The reality star has reportedly offered to pay rent for Matthew Charles. To review, he was got out of jail after serving 20 of his 35-year sentence for a non-violent drug and weapons charges. Charles – who lives in Nashville – was granted clemency as a part of Donald Trump’s First Step Act.

Charles applied housing in an attempt to get back on his feet, but was denied was due to his criminal record. Once Kim heard that, she privately contacted him and graciously offered to cover his rent payments for the next five years.

We previously told you that Rotten Tomatoes laid down some new rules after the “Captain Marvel” page was flooded with bad reviews by trolls, making it so fans can no longer submit a review until after it hits theaters. Well, “Captain Marvel” just came out this weekend, and it didn’t take long for things to get weird on the page.

Within hours of its release on Friday, more than 58,000 reviews appeared on the site, bringing the audience score down to 33-percent. As the outlet points out, that’s even more reviews than the entire run of “Avengers: Infinity War.” But by that afternoon, the reviews dropped to 7,000… and Rotten Tomatoes has explained why.

The site is blaming a glitch for the hoard of reviews. Basically, once the movie hit theaters, allowing the audience reviews to roll in, all of those past troll reviews came back at once. “We have identified a bug in the post-release functionality… the quantity of user ratings included both pre-release and post-release fan voting,” the site’s statement reads.

The late Luke Perry won’t get a chance to make a cameo in the upcoming “Beverly Hills 90210” reboot like he was reportedly planning to do… but he’ll still be honored by the show. The reboot is planning on paying tribute to the late actor in some way, though it hasn’t been reveal how. So, it looks like fans will have to wait until the showing starring Tori Spelling and most of the original cast airs to find out.

Disney is getting set to launch their much anticipated streaming service, dubbed Disney+, later this year, and we just found out the entire Disney library will be on it, which has fans in a frenzy. They’re probably happy that everything from the House of Mouse will be available, but it effectively kills off the long held tradition of opening the vault to release a film not seen in years.

Anything you can think of, with some notable and never-to-be-released-again exceptions being left out, will be at our fingertips. “Star Wars,” Pixar, and Marvel movies will be in the mix too on the service. The vault may be going away, but we’ll have access (for a fee) to any Disney classic. Of course other services won’t.
