Earlier in January, The Situation turned himself in for an eight-month sentence for tax evasion at the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York. He pleaded guilty to the charge in January 2018.
“I heard he’s doing great in there,” Guadagnino told TMZ. “He was never like really nervous about it. So I was praying, I’m like, ‘Oh god I hope once he’s in there, it’s okay.’ But [his wife] Lauren told us that he’s doing great.”
Guadagnino continued, “He’s going to be alright. He’s so strong mentally from like his recovery process that it’s working out for him now in jail… Mike’s the type of guy where he looks for the positive in every situation. I can picture him in there, watching TV, working out.”
Guadagnino then pitched Kim, saying, “Mike is an amazing person. To me, he’s completely reformed—he’s a great member of society. He preaches to kids that have addictions, he’s a big advocate and evangelist for recovery. He’d be better off out here, helping people. Kim, get on that.”
Recently, thousands of requests from inmates around the country have been sent to Kim to help overturn sentences. In January, Cyntoia Brown became the third inmate whom Kardashian advocated for and successfully helped free.
Kim has managed to accomplish a lot within the last year. She had a polarizing meeting with President Trump to discuss the release of Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison for a drug offense. Johnson was subsequently granted clemency.
