Kim Kardashian is a tech developer, reality star, and author (Selfish totally counts, guys), and she also happens to be one of the most body positive women in the game. But Kim comes under a lot of unfair and pretty sexist scrutiny surrounding her famous curves—specifically in regards to whether or not she's had butt injections. So, has she? Answer: No. But also yes.

In a recent live stream, Kim admits that she has, in fact, had injections—but there's a simple explanation. She suffers from psoriasis, and was told by a doctor that getting cortisone shots could help. Kim says rumors of fat injections started when she was spotted with a dent in her skin, a common side effect of the medication.

"I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt," Kim says. "I lived right behind Kitson. One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he's like, 'There's a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.' Of course I get a huge indent on my butt."

As Kim goes on to note, there are several photos where the indent is visible. "There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson," she continues. "You see the indent. And I think that's when the rumors started: 'She's had implants.'"

Well, there you have it. Mystery of the 🍑 = solved.
