Kris Jenner has reportedly reignited fears of a drinking problem, with a new report claiming friends and family are concerned that the Kardashian matriarch needs professional help.

Jenner, 56, is often seen consuming alcoholic beverages on her family's E! Reality TV show and a source claims her drinking is out of control, according to In Touch magazine.

"She sometimes drinks at work and in the morning, and she always jokes about having her vodka and wine ready for her when she arrives at an event or at home," a Kardashian family insider allegedly told InTouch. "She needs help."

In 2012 Jenner's alleged drinking problem was brought to light during a family vacation to the Dominican Republic. The incident aired on their reality TV show.

Upon arrival, Jenner was told that she has a surprise to which she is heard responding, "I think I need a yellow drink for that!" while reaching for what appeared to be a cocktail.

At one point she drove a jet ski after consuming alcohol, much to the dismay of her daughter Khloe, 28.

"My mom is really nuts. I don't think you're supposed to operate vehicles or heavy machinery once you're heavily intoxicated, and this b---- just decides to get on a jet ski with her prized possession on the back, Kim," a concerned Khloe said.

Jenner's partying was reportedly out of control during her marriage to the late Robert Kardashian. His widow claims the mother-of-six's drinking led to various problems in their marriage.

"I know her partying and drinking was a big issue in their marriage," Ellen Kardashian said. "He thought she had a problem with alcohol because she would drink in such excess. He worried about the children."

Meanwhile Jenner's children are said to be unsure as to how to handle their mother's excessive drinking.

"The kids just don't know what to do," the source said. "Maybe the only thing they can do is to wait for her to hit rock bottom."
