Reality stars are no stranger to tabloid rumors, but sometimes they cross the line. Kim Kardashian is reportedly looking to sue one for making a nasty claim that she says simply isn’t true.
An Australian tabloid, “NW Magazine,” claims that Kim Kardashian has a dangerous drug habit (are there any other kind). The “Keeping up with the Kardashian” star is lashing out, saying that it’s a lie.
An unnamed source said that Kim Kardashian is “freaking everyone out right now. She’s taking Valium and sleeping pills. The last time she self-medicated was when she split from Reggie Bush when everything felt impossible…It started with just a little bit to take the edge off or help her sleep, but she could become dependent upon pills, which worries her. I think she’s secretly pleased Khloé found out because she’d have struggled to stop on her own.”
A reality star with a drug habit? You can’t throw a rock (or a TV contract) too far in this town to hit one of their kind. But TMZ is reporting that Kim is outraged by the statements and looking to take legal action to keep the rumors from going wider.
This all when Kim seems to be cleaning up her image (or at least pretending to). The drug use accusation comes on the heels of the premiere of her new show, her recent trip to Cannes with the Hollywood A-list and her hooking up with new boyfriend Kanye West.
But isn’t this just one of the steps in the reality show narrative to be followed by the inevitable stay in rehab?
