Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian West was embroiled in controversy over a Snapchat post that led to speculations of cocaine use. Following the massive media firestorm that ensued, her husband Kanye West reportedly wants to take measures to prevent similar issues from arising in the future.
On July 10, Monday, Kim posted a Snapchat video saying she and daughter North West had just returned from a trip to Dylan’s Candy Shop in New York. What got people’s attention, however, were two straight white lines on the table behind the reality star. Her followers quickly pointed out that said lines may be cocaine.
The following day, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star addressed the rumors by explaining that the lines were sugar from Pixie Stix candies and not cocaine.
“I do not play with rumors like this so I’m gonna shut it down real quick,” Kardashian said in a tweet. “That’s sugar from our candy mess from Dylan’s Candy Shop.”
However, in a subsequent Twitter post, the 36-year-old mother of two clarified that it wasn’t actually sugar, but was, in fact, the marble design on the table that resembled two white lines in the video.
“That was not candy on my table! The table was marble this whole time! C’mon. I don’t play like that… It’s just not my lifestyle – I’ve never been like that,” Kardashian said in a video, as reported by People.
According to sources, Kanye West is not taking the issue lightly and is heartbroken that his wife is being criticized and accused of substance abuse.
A source told Hollywood Life that Kim Kardashian doesn’t usually get affected by rumors, but it’s a different story when her kids are involved. She’s said to be more sensitive and protective, and when things upset her it’s usually hard for her to let it go.
After the cocaine issue, Kim was mommy-shamed for dressing 4-year-old North in a corset. According to Teen Vogue, many of Kim’s followers took issue with the fact that she allowed her young daughter to wear a piece of clothing that is traditionally used as shapewear by adults.
In response to the outage, Kim explained that North wasn’t wearing an actual corset and that it was simply the design of the dress that looked like a corset. North’s outfit wasn’t body-hugging like a real corset, but was actually a free-flowing dress made with “cotton fabric that laces up and looks like a corset.” She also said that she would never put her daughter, whom she’s sending to a $28,000-a-year preschool, in a real corset.
Kanye West is reportedly fuming over the attacks against his wife on social media. Kanye reportedly wants Kim to quit social media again since he thinks it’s become very unhealthy for her.
“He’s pushing her to take another break from it,” the source revealed. Kim famously went on a lengthy social media hiatus after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016.
The source added that while Kanye can handle haters and trolls attacking him, he doesn’t want Kim to go through such negativity. “Kanye hates seeing her get upset, he wants to protect her,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian turned heads Thursday evening when she stepped out in a completely see-through plastic dress in Calabasas, California, the Daily Mail reported. The star went out to get sushi in a flesh-flashing outfit that revealed her silk undies. She wore a Jil Sander coat to cover her breasts.
With everything that’s happening to the Kardashian-Jenner clan—Rob Kardashian’s “revenge porn” controversy and Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s shirt designs issue—it’s been a very intense month for the reality show family.
