Is Kim Kardashian Going To Try And Free Gypsy Rose Blanchard Next?
Gypsy Rose Blanchard's story is about as wild and tragic as they come. Between making national headlines and Hulu's new series, The Act , most people are now familiar with her story. While Blanchard is currently serving time for murdering her abusive mother, what are the chances that Kim Kardashian takes the case and wins her freedom?
For those who have never heard of Blanchard, here is a quick summary of what happened. For the majority of her life, Blanchard's mother, Dee Dee, claimed that her daughter suffered from a variety of health issues, including chromosomal disorders, leukemia, and muscular dystrophy. She even kept Blanchard in a wheelchair and forced her to eat through a feeding tube. The only problem is that Blanchard was completely healthy.
According to The Hollywood Gossip , Dee Dee also abused Blanchard in horrible ways and never allowed her to leave the home without supervision. Blanchard tried to escape when she was 18 years old, but her mom thwarted her attempt. Things changed when Blanchard met a guy named Nick Godejohn online. After some time, the pair agreed to murder Dee Dee so that Blanchard could live a normal life.
As far as Kardashian is concerned, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been working in the field of prison reform for quite some time. She recently advocated for clemency on behalf of Alice Johnson, who was released from prison after 20 years behind bars. With Kardashian now going to school to become a lawyer, fans asked her on social media if she would take Blanchard's case.
"I really hope Kim K looks into the Gypsy Rose case and sees about releasing her," a fan noted on social media. "That girl suffered for years and had no other choice."
Kim Kardashian has not commented on the situation. In light of the growing interest in Blanchard's case, there is a chance that the reality star will at least look into it. There is no telling what Kardashian could actually do to help out, but it certainly would not hurt to try.
