Khloe Kardashian is revealing the story behind her recent cocaine shame, after the highly-addictive drug was found in her handbag. The cocaine controversy will appear as a plotline on an upcoming episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami — Khloe’s new summer reality series with sister Kourtney — premiering on E! this Sunday night.
The 25-year-old reality star insists she decided to put a vial of cocaine in her handbag for safekeeping after she found the drug in one of the fitting rooms of her Dash Boutique.
The drug stash could have meant considerable jail time for Khloe, who is currently on probation for a 2007 DUI arrest.
“My employee was picking up a pile of clothes that customers had tried on, and it (vial) fell out. She called me into the dressing room, and it was in a little glass vial. I was leaving the dressing room, and a lot of customers walked in,” Khloe tells Life & Style Weekly. “I didn’t know what to do, so I threw it in my purse. I was like, ‘I’ll dispose of this in a second,’ and I went to help them. Then I forgot about it.”
She continues, “Nothing registered until after the fact. Now, talking about it, I’m like, ‘OK, that would be really bad if I got (charged) with drug possession.’ But I don’t do drugs. I don’t have drugs in my purse. I’m not someone who needs to do drugs… I’m too energetic and crazy as it is. I wouldn’t want to see me on drugs.”
