Millions of fans who watched Sunday night's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians were surprised to see Khloe holding in her hand what appeared to be a marijuana joint. According to TMZ, sources said the "suspicious-looking" cigarette that Khloe held in her hand on the Sunday, May 14 episode of KUWTK was, in fact, a marijuana joint that she did not try to conceal.
The latest episodes of the KUWTK reality show have portrayed the family's holiday in Costa Rica.
Khloe, 32, was shown holding between her fingers a cigarette that many fans suspected might be weed. She was shown holding the cigarette as she hugged Scott Disick, her sister Kourtney's ex-lover.
According to TMZ, sources close to KUWTK production confirmed that what Khloe was holding as she hugged Disick was exactly what fans suspected; a marijuana joint.
"Yes, that was a joint in her hand as she hugged Scott Disick," a source told TMZ.
The sources added that the producers did not mind Khloe smoking weed while filming the episode of KUWTK because "it was a natural moment" in which she was enjoying a vacation with her family in Costa Rica.
"Producers didn't mind Khloe shooting scenes with it because it was natural — she was having a good time with the family in Costa Rica, and sometimes ganja happens."However, fans need not worry about Khloe breaking any laws in Costa Rica. Although marijuana is illegal in the U.S., it is legal for personal use in Costa Rica.
The scene raised eyebrows only because a spokesperson for Khloe had claimed in the past that she was a non-smoker and that she smoked neither marijuana nor cigarettes, the Daily Mail reported. The claim by a spokesperson that Khloe was not a smoker came after she was photographed smoking a "suspicious-looking" cigarette while on the dance floor in a nightclub with her rapper pal, The Game (Jayceon Taylor), back in 2014.
"She doesn't smoke pot or cigarettes. It's a Hookah stick, which is tobacco free. It's called Phantom Smoke."Readers might recall that it was The Game who claimed controversially in the lyrics of his 2016 single "Sauce" (feat. DJ Khaled) that he had "f****d" all three Kardashian sisters; that is, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney.
"I used to f*** b****s that Usher Raymond passed on, Then I f***ed three Kardashians."Although Khloe was rumored to have dated The Game after she split with Lamar Odom in 2013, The Game denied in 2014 that he had dated Khloe. He said at the time that he and Khloe had been friends for years and that their relationship had always been "platonic." But he claimed to have dated Kim briefly.
Many viewers of Sunday's episode of KUWTK remarked that it was strange that Khloe hugged Disick soon after a row over Disick bringing a fling to the family's Costa Rica vacation. But some fans suggested that positive feelings for Disick might have been roused temporarily after she puffed on her joint.
However, the highlight of Sunday's episode of KUWTK was when Kourtney told Disick that they were never getting back together again. Disick had angered everyone by bringing a fling to their Costa Rica getaway. He explained later that he couldn't help it because he was a "sex addict."
"It's the final door closed. We're done," Kourtney announced.
Kourtney's declaration that her relationship with Disick was permanently over came after Khloe had a row with her sister Kim. Kim, 36, had screamed at her younger sister and told her to "shut the f**k up."
Kim went ballistic after Khloe complained that the family was not spending quality time together.
"It's just interesting how I don't see you guys a lot," she complained. "I take the time to come here thinking, 'great, this is time that I get to be with my sisters and my nieces and nephews and do all these things.'"
Khloe's moaning angered Kim, who appeared to think that her sister was being hypocritical.
"You're so annoying. It's like, shut the f*** up," Kim shot back. "You're the negative one, just saying how awful we are. You're like a big bully that bullies all of us!"
