Malika Haqq Arrested For DUI
Malika Haqq was reportedly arrested for DUI on Thursday after getting into a car accident.
The reality star, known to many as Khloe Kardashian’s best friend, allegedly crashed her car on California’s 101 Freeway in the early morning hours, suffering minor injuries. When police arrived on scene, they determined that Haqq was showing “objective symptoms of intoxication.” She allegedly failed a sobriety test, and was taken into custody just after 3 a.m. local time.
And though Haqq was arrested for being under the influence of alcohol, police are investigating whether she also had drugs in her system. She was ultimately released from jail on $30,000 bond. According to TMZ, Haqq was at a birthday party in the hours before her accident.
Earlier Wednesday, she posted birthday wishes on Instagram for childhood friend Dominique La Fargue, whose own page shows she indeed had a celebratory bash. And Haqq’s twin sister, Khadijah, posted photos on Instagram suggesting they were both at the party. For her part, Haqq has not posted about the party or mentioned her arrest on social media.
She and Khadijah currently star on the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” spinoff, “DASH Dolls,” which follows the siblings as they manage the Kardashian family’s boutique and help oversee the staff. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Haqq will be seen on this Sunday’s “KUWTK,” during a scene in which she and Kardashian grill Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble. “DASH Dolls” airs right after.
As Gossip Cop noted at the time, part of the season finale of “Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons” earlier this year featured a plot line in which Malika got incredibly drunk. In a statement, E! now says, “‘Dash Dolls’ previously wrapped production and the show’s fourth episode will air this Sunday. We are aware of the incident involving Malika and will not be commenting.” Gossip Cop will have updates.
