Pregnant Kim Kardashian caused a stir last night after a photo of her apparently 'drinking alcohol' was posted on Twitter.
Kim, who's pregnant with her first baby with rapper Kanye West, and her sister Khloe posted a snap which showed the pair of them and their brother Rob Kardashian taking a sip of their drinks to celebrate his birthday.
Khloe Kardashian posted the photo on Instagram alongside the caption: "Turning it up for @robkardashian birthday."
Kim then tweeted the photo as well, but the photo quickly caused a stir amongst her followers, with many speculating whether she was drinking despite being pregnant.
One commenter said: "I thought Kim was pregnant ... Why is she drinking"
Another follower said: "Aren't you pregnant @kimkardashian? Why are you drinking?
Another chipped in with: "I hope that's not wine."
But Kim's fans were quick to jump to her defence, saying that the photo was old. Kim had tweeted a series of old birthday photos from previous years, and fans said that this was just another vintage snap.

One follower said: "Guys, she's not drinking whilst she's pregnant. This picture was taken a while back.
She revealed: "The controversy comes just as Kim revealed that she's finding her pregnancy tough.It's a little painful. I've gotten sick a couple times. It's getting a little bit more difficult [to get around]. I like to be active but I've been chilling out. I took a week off, just to rest and it was amazing."
