‘Kimberly does not drink alcohol whatsoever,’ Khloé Kardashian told ELLE back in 2016. ‘She’s just never been into it.’ But, it seems all that has changed.
Speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow on her Goop podcast, 42-year-old Kim opened up about reintroducing alcohol into her life and why she’s chosen to put a pause on her sobriety. ‘I started to drink a little bit at the age of 42. Coffee and alcohol,’ she said. ‘I feel like I just gotta let loose a little bit.’
The mum-of-four went on: ‘Cause why not, you know?’
‘I just feel like I work a lot and I focus all day after school then it’s like product meetings and testing things and packaging meetings and everything for SKKN,’ Kim continued. ‘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.’
As for what Kim’s new favourite tipple is, the reality-TV-star-turned-business-mogul said: ‘It just has to be a little shot of pineapple and a shot of tequila. I have two shots and I’m like so good. It’s been fun.’ Is that a plug for sister Kendall Jenner’s tequila brand, we wonder?
