After seemingly unairbrushed photos of Kim Kardashian’s butt hit the Internet earlier this year, thousands of the reality star’s fans have speculated that the selfie queen edits all of her pics before posting them on Instagram.
The revelation appeared to have lost Kim 100,000 followers, but given that the mother-of-two currently boasts 98.8 million, it’s definitely not something to cry over. However, during a Tuesday, June 20 appearance on The View, the Selfish author claimed that the pics were actually digitally altered to make her look "way worse."
"I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them," she said on the daytime program. "I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn't worked out in about 12 weeks, I'd had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show."
Photoshopped or not, Kim’s bikini body looks incredible. In fact, the 36-year-old flaunted her slim figure in a couple of videos on Snapchat.
After welcoming son Saint in December 2015, the brunette beauty told fans that she was determined to lose 70 pounds, a goal she surpassed just one year later. "My butt and my hips are the last to go, but I'm not stopping!” she told People magazine. "After having two kids, and being able to get in shape and still feel good about myself, I've never felt better. I worked my a-- off, I've altered my life and I'm proud of that."
Kim’s dip in followers came on the same day she opened up about the struggles she faces being a mom, particularly when it comes to “wild” child North West. “[She] just beats [Saint] up all day long,” the Kimoji creator told Ellen DeGeneres of the three-year-old. “She’s just awful. She’s just so jealous, and I thought it was a phase, but it’s not going away!”
In fact, North has a list of rules her family members must follow. “She says that boys aren’t allowed in her room,” Kim shared. “When she’s gone at school, I’m like, ‘It’s time! Let’s go in her room! Do whatever you want, go crazy!’ She’s just so jealous!”
