Kim Kardashian on Cocaine Rumors: It's The Table's Fault!

The reality star took to social media to address rumors that she had lines of cocaine on a table in her hotel room.

Kim Kardashian is defending herself in light of speculation surrounding what appeared to be a white powdery substance in the background of one of her Snapchat posts. Commenters pointed out that the two white lines on the table behind her appeared to be cocaine. Kardashian did not waste any time explaining that there were absolutely no drugs in her hotel room. Instead, she blamed it on pixie sticks she’d purchased from a popular candy shop.

“I do not play with rumors like this so I'm gonna shut it down real quick. That's sugar from our candy mess from Dylan's Candy Shop,” Kardashian tweeted. But it turned out that even she was wrong. After returning to her hotel room to check, she realized that instead of cocaine it was just the table itself, the white stripes were a part of the pattern on the marble table.

It's no surprise that Kardashian would be quick to shut down speculation that she was doing coke. Her distaste for drinking and drug use has been pretty well-documented, and she's been quoted as saying that she’s “always the designated driver” for her sisters and other friends.

And with tabloids obsessing over her sister Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, it would seem that the last thing the Kardashian family would want is speculation over cocaine use. Disick, who has three children with the elder Kardashian, has been hospitalized for a drug overdose before, and friends and family members fear that he’s headed for another one.

In 2014, Disick was rushed to the emergency room after ingesting a potentially lethal combination of cocaine, Xanax and alcohol, his former manager David Weintraub told Life & Style. And in January 2016, Scott was allegedly found unresponsive after consuming cocaine, vodka, beer, and Viagra, and reportedly had to be revived with an adrenaline shot.

Kim Kardashian has been open about her struggle with anxiety, particularly following an incident last year when she was robbed at gunpoint. “I really pride myself in fully having my shit together all the time,” Kardashian said on her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But following the robbery, she said she found herself replaying the incident over and over again. "I never had anxiety and I want to take back my life,” she said. As a result, she began seeing a therapist.
