Khloe Kardashian’s BFF, Malika Haqq, has been arrested for a DUI after a car accident that happened on early Thursday morning.
The Dash Dolls star was taken into custody around 4:18 a.m. by the California Highway Patrol on the 101 freeway in North Hollywood, according to police reports obtained by the media. The 32-year-old crashed her car around 3:00 a.m. when she showed “objective symptoms of intoxication,” according to the authorities. The CHP documents revealed that authorities gave Malika a sobriety test, which she failed. They determined that she was under the influence of alcohol and then arrested her on the spot.
Malika was suspected of driving with a blood alcohol level of over 0.08 percent, according to the CHP police report.
Authorities say that Haqq only suffered minor injuries during the crash. They received a call that a black Mercedes-Benz was blocking lanes on 101 north, which led to the crash. Haqq was booked at the Valley Jail in Van Nuys, where she spent several hours in the cell, before being released on $30,000 bail before noon the next day.
Both Haqq and her twin sixter, Khadijah Haqq McCray, co-manage the Kardashian’s DASH boutiques. They also star on the new Kardashian reality show spinoff, Dash Dolls, which premiered on Sept. 20 on E! A spokesperson for the E! show would not comment to People magazine on Haqq’s recent DUI arrest.
“Dash Dolls previously wrapped production and the show’s fourth episode will air this Sunday. We are aware of the incident involving Malika and will not be commenting.”
In addition to starring on Dash Dolls, Malika Haqq has made several appearances on episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Several anonymous sources told Radar Online that she has an unhealthy relationship with alcohol and her friend Khloe Kardashian may be responsible for her behavior. Malika’s drunken behavior was recently seen on Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons when she got so intoxicated that she tried to kiss her best friend.
The famous Kardashian sister and her best friend partied at the 1Oak nightclub in Las Vegas the night before New Year’s Eve. They flew in on a private jet, bought new dresses, and even posed for photographers as they hugged each other. But Kardashian wasn’t cool when Haqq tried to kiss her on the lips.
But that’s just another night for the reality star, according to one of the sources. Another source told the celebrity gossip site that “Malika has been wasted the last two times we hung out.”
Despite her drunken antics, Haqq loves drinking with the youngest Kardashian sister.
“Khloe is enabling Malika,” another source told Radar. The anonymous source says that Haqq drinks to forget about her insecurities and the comparisons to her twin sister, Khadijah.
“It’s tough for her to always be compared to her sister, who is married. And she wishes she could be as famous as her sisters.”
But Khloe’s alleged enabling is not going to help Malika. Despite her new found health and fitness shtick, she loves drinking alcohol and and is launching her late-night talk show called Kocktails With Khloe.
Neither Khloe nor Malika have publicly spoken out about this controversy. The only one who has released a statement in light of Malika Haqq’s arrest was her twin sister.
“We all go through rough patches and this has been a difficult year for my sister. Malika understands the gravity of her actions and deeply apologizes. At this time, we will deal with this as a family.”
Malika Haqq last made headlines when she posed nude for photographer Chris Fortuna on the Dash Dolls premiere. She and her sister met with the photographer at the Playboy mansion when Malika agreed to do the steamy photo shoot. Khadijah didn’t like posing in the buff, but Malika was obviously felt comfortable in her own skin.
