Kim Kardashian recently came under fire from fans over a number of unflattering un-airbrushed bikini photos taken during a trip to Mexico.
The reality star, 36, is now claiming the paparazzi photos – showing cellulite on her world-famous bum – were “photoshopped” and “sharpened”.
Kim appeared on The View on Tuesday and opened up about the images that soon garnered a global reaction.
She told the panel: “I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them.
“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.”
“But I was already not feeling like myself,” Kim continued. “And when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like ‘Ok, I’m going to get it together’ and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl that I found on social media.”
After the un-airbrushed snaps were released, fans had accused the star of painting a completely false picture of herself with her steady stream of flawless images.
Addressing the backlash, the star added: “I definitely have thick skin and this isn’t for everyone. I can see why people get hurt and are bothered by it.
“I do break down at times. There are times when I’m just like, it’s not OK for people to say these awful things.
“For us to have these people that have all this keyboard courage to write the craziest things about you and to think that it’s OK, and it’s not OK.”
