Socialite Kim Kardashian has finally put her sober era behind her as she recently revealed that she has started drinking alcohol again. Fans who keep up with the Kardashians know very well that the socialite has strictly avoided alcohol for a very long time, even earning the “sober sister” title. She once explained that she decided to quit as alcohol made her “do crazy things.”
The SKIMS mogul recently confessed on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop podcast that she has once again started drinking and she has valid reasons behind it. The socialite reportedly stopped drinking shortly after visiting Kourtney Kardashian in college.
Kim Kardashian has started drinking again
Socialite Kim Kardashian, who reportedly stopped consuming alcohol many years ago, has once again started drinking. The socialite recently appeared on the Goop podcast and told the host Gwyneth Paltrow that she has started drinking “a little bit.” She said,
“I started to drink a little bit at the age of 42, coffee and alcohol. I feel like I just gotta let loose a little bit. Cause why not, you know? I just feel like I work a lot. I focus all day, with school, then it’s like product meetings and testing things and packaging meetings and everything for SKKN.”
She pointed out that she deserves a drink as she works a lot. The socialite has made several investments in many businesses and also has her own brand called SKKN and SKIMS.
The socialite likes to drink with her friends
She further added that she does not like to sit alone at home during her free time. So in order to kill time, she hangs out with her friends, having a couple of drinks. She said,
“I just don’t ever feel comfortable just laying around doing nothing. So my version of that has been to spend some time with my friends and have a drink and stay out a little bit later, when I probably wouldn’t have done that before.”
She has highlighted in the past that she is a workaholic and prioritizes her business empire over anything else in her life.
Kim Kardashian stopped drinking after visiting Kourtney Kardashian in college
In 2016, Khloe Kardashian told Elle, “Kimberly does not drink alcohol whatsoever… she’s just never been into it.” The socialite’s fans are aware that she has avoided alcohol for a very long time. She once posted a throwback picture of herself with Kourtney Kardashian with the caption,
“College Years Baby!!! University of Arizona single handedly stopped me from turning into a wild party girl. I remember visiting Kourt on campus and being her designated driver. I hated all of the wild parties so much that I stayed home and never wanted to drink or party EVER…so thank you U of A. I was never a student there but u shaped my life more than you know.”
The socialite explained that she was never really interested in being a “wild party girl.” However, it’s not like Kim Kardashian was completely away from alcohol. On many occasions, the socialite was spotted drinking, even chugging, alcohol. Fans were shocked in March 2021 after an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians featured the Kardashian getting extremely drunk during a girls’ night.
