Kat Graham wants fans to know she is not a pot user. The actress’ rep is clearing up drug use rumors after a vacation post-“Vampire Diaries” ended with a trip to the hospital.
Graham, who played Bonnie Bennett for eight seasons on The CW hit, took a trip to Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, California, last month. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worst when she got sick and needed an ambulance.
TMZ reported that Graham ate a marijuana brownie that left her with some serious side effects. The outlet claims she was “extremely paranoid, anxious and seeing things.”
A representative for Graham denied the story but confirmed that she was hospitalized. TMA published photos that show Graham being treated by paramedics, and her rep told People that the 27-year-old “was eating at a restaurant outside the resort and had a violent reaction to food poisoning.”
The representative also clarified that the actress, who will next be seen in the Tupac biopic “All Eyez on Me,” does not ever eat pot brownies, despite recreational marijuana being legal in California. “Kat is not a drug user, and has never been a drug user,” she added.
The actress isn’t the only one who took a trip after wrapping the “Vampire Diaries” series finale. Candice King, who played Caroline, headed to Mexico. Meanwhile, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed took a cross country road trip after cameras stopped rolling. The CW aired the series finale March 10.
Graham is looking forward to starting new ventures after spending so long on “TVD.” The singer is set to release her second full-length album later this year. She is also dedicating her time to philanthropy as well. On Sunday, she ignored rumors about her vacation and announced to her fans that they could soon expect her to launch a campaign for Empower54, a nonprofit humanitarian group.
