On Twitter, Kardashian deflected the rumor by saying it was just sugar, left on the table from an earlier purchase at a candy store.
I do not play with rumors like this so I’m gonna shut it down real quick. That’s sugar from our candy mess from dylan’s candy shop https://t.co/oICdPQVi8d

Chrissy Teigen backed her up, saying that leaving cocaine on the table in the background of a selfie didn’t make any sense.

“I don’t play like that. Come on. I have kids. It’s just not my lifestyle. I’ve never been like that,” Kardashian said in a statement.
Late Tuesday night, Kardashian posted a Snapchat video with a different explanation. Wearing the flower crown Snapchat filter, she explained that the two white lines on her hotel table was just… the table itself. It was part of the marble pattern. She filmed a close-up of the table to shut down her doubters.
