Kim Kardashian starts drinking again: I feel I’ve got to let loose a bit

Kim Kardashian had been abstaining from alcohol for a number of years prior to the recent announcement that she has started drinking occasionally again.

The 42-year-old social media celebrity was speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow on the latter’s Goop podcast when she made the confession.

“I started to drink a little bit at the age of 42. Coffee and alcohol,” Kardashian said.

I feel like I just gotta let loose a little bit.”

Famous actress Paltrow asked Kim why she had decided to make this lifestyle change.

“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,” 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.”

A Mexican flavour

Kardashian then revealed her new favourite drink.

“It just has to be a little shot of pineapple and a shot of tequila,” Kardashian said. “I have two shots and I’m like so good. It’s been fun.”

Previously sober

Due to other commitments, Kardashian had barely touched alcohol in recent years.

“She drinks here and there, but mostly abstains,” a source told PEOPLE in 2018.

“She may have a glass of champagne on a holiday or for someone’s birthday, but it’s rare.”
