Khloe Kardashian reveals in her new book Strong Looks Better Naked she almost went to rehab after her dad, Robert Kardashian passed away from cancer in 2003.
“I was 19 at the time, and to say I didn’t handle his death well is an understatement,” admits Khloe in the book, obtained by RadarOnline.com. “I didn’t turn to drugs, but I certainly drowned my sorrows in drink, and the partying soon got out of hand. I was underage and behaving recklessly in clubs and at private parties.”
Khloe also noted the effects of binge drinking were affecting her body. “I see pictures of myself at the time and I was so bloated that I look like I’m 45 years old!”
According to the Daily Mail, Khloe admitted her sister, Kourtney ensured she didn’t end up in rehab by giving Khloe a job at the family’s Dash store.
She explained, ‘‘I didn’t end up in rehab … because Kourtney put her foot down and forced me to take control of my life, but I probably came close.“
While the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star avoided rehab, Khloe was arrested for a DUI in March, 2007 and sentenced to three years probation and community service. After admitting to violating her parole – including skipping an alcohol treatment class – she was sentenced to 30 days in jail. However, she only spent three hours behind bars at the Lynwood women’s jail before being released due to overcrowding.
