Kim Kardashian is many things: an attention-starved, personality-less waste of large breasts; a former sex tape star; a lying spokesperson.
But a pill popper? Someone who turns to Valium and other sleeping medicine when the pressures of work and romance become too much? This is where the reality star draws the legal line.
Sources confirm to TMZ that Kardashian has demanded her attorneys take action against any outlet that runs with the cover story in this week's NW, an Australian tabloid that reports Kim has a drug problem.
The story quotes an anonymous source who says Kim has regularly "self-medicated" in the face of stress, starting when she first split with Reggie Bush.
Khloe Kardashian supposedly discovered a bottle of pills recently and has threatened to tell Kris Jenner and Kanye West unless Kim takes care of the issue.
Kim, meanwhile, is spending the week at the Cannes Film Festival. On Wednesday night, she and Kanye made their red carpet debut at that annual event.
