Watch What Happens Live – Season 13
Khloe Kardashian took to her blog this week to address her latest photoshop scandal and why she made the decision to edit the controversial photo of herself!
In the post, Kardashian explained why she photoshopped her legs in a selfie of herself looking in the mirror after a workout! According to Kardashian, she made the edits due to her insecurities over her legs after a car accident she was involved in as a teenager.
"Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f—ed up my knees look. It's because I've had reconstructive surgery, you a—holes!" she wrote. "My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered."
She continued, "The reason I've had so many of these surgeries – and always wear a knee brace for my workouts – is because I was in a car accident when I was 16. To this day, I remember the exact streets (Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon)."
Kardashian said the accident was the result of her speeding and another vehicle running through a stop sign. "I was wearing my seatbelt but the strap was under my armpit. I was in a small Mercedes and it compacted in the wreck. My head and upper body went through the windshield and my legs were stuck under the steering wheel,” she said. "I still remember hitting the other car, feeling the car spinning, and hitting a pole. I had knee surgery the day of my accident and a couple more after that. Lord, help me! So next time you see me in a knee brace, you know why!"
Kardashian went on to say that she had to use crutches for six months after the accident and wore a leg brace. She even had to get help from her best friends Malika Haqq and Khadijah Haqq during her recovery. "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!" she said.
And when it comes to her decision to alter the photo — which was called out by her followers due to the door frame in the edited picture looking curved — Kardashian said she was trying to correct the size of her right thigh."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!!!" she said. "All I want are big, thick thighs and I hate how skinny my legs are."
