Khloé Kardashian's Photoshop Fail, Explained

Koko gets real on her app.


Back in February, Khloé Kardashian posted a gym selfie on Instagram only to be slammed by critics who accused her for a bad Photoshop job. As you may recall, Koko did some light retouching to a part of her thigh, which caused the doorframe behind her to bend a little. She later deleted the photo and shared an "OG shot," writing "If only hatin burned calories how dope yall would be." On Monday, Koko took to her app and website to explain why she turns to Photoshop before sharing photos of her legs. According to Khloé, a car accident from when she was 16 has left her with multiple leg surgeries, which is why she's often spotted with a knee brace when she works out. "Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how fucked up my knees look," she writes. "It's because I've had reconstructive surgery, you assholes!" As Khloé explains, her right leg is 1.5 inches thinner than her left because her muscles never fully recovered from the accident and surgeries. 

It's funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo below because I Photoshopped it. 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.

And because another Kardashian fact is never a bad thing, Khloé also reveals in the post the story behind those cornrows:

I was on crutches for six months and had a leg brace that went from my ankle to my upper thigh. I had a neck brace, burns all over my body and had to take showers sitting in a chair. Malika and Khadijah would literally help me shower. They also did my hair so that I wouldn't have to wash it as often. That's how I first started wearing cornrows!
