Khloe Kardashian Admits To Photoshopping, Blames Knee Surgery (PIC)
Khloe Kardashian is admitting to photoshopping a picture of herself that sparked controversy earlier this year. Check out the photos at right and below.
Back in February, Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram showing her standing in a bathroom as she flaunted her abs. She was quickly accused of digitally manipulating the photo because the door frame appeared curvy instead of straight. She ultimately deleted the pic, and then uploaded the original with the caption, “If only hatin burned calories how dope yall would be. Too bad it doesn’t. Here’s the OG shot. The petty movement ain’t cute. Oh and I almost forgot…. Namaste.”
Now on KhloeWithAK, the reality star is confessing she did alter the first snapshot she posted, but it’s not for “the reason you think it is.” As it turns out, Kardashian wasn’t trying to slim down her torso, but make her legs appear differently. “Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f*cked up my knees look. It’s because I’ve had reconstructive surgery, you assh*les,” she writes.
Kardashian has spoken candidly in the past about the serious car accident she had at 16, which sent her upper body through the windshield with her legs caught under the steering wheel. In addition to suffering head trauma, she had to undergo multiple surgeries to repair the damage to her right knee. She explains now, “My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.”
“It’s funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo because I Photoshopped it,” Kardashian says. “Yes, I did Photoshop it, but I was trying to make my thinner leg look bigger to match my other leg!!! All I want are big, thick thighs and I hate how skinny my legs are.” Check out the edited (left) and unedited (right) photos below.
