Khloé Kardashian explains why she photoshopped this gym selfie

It's not what you'd think...

By Lorna Gray

Back in February, some people on the internet had a field day when Khloé Kardashian posted a ~fIyAh~ picture of her bod, claiming she’d doctored the shot.

She was caught out because the door frame behind her in the photo had warped slightly when she had retouched her thigh.

She deleted the picture and put up the original which was basically THE EXACT SAME with the caption: “If only hatin' burned calories how dope ya'll would be.”

But now, Khloé has given an explanation about why she felt the need to edit her leg that day, revealing that it was because of a car accident she had when she was 16.

Khlo explained via her website that she had multiple leg surgeries following the accident and her right leg is apparently 1.5 inches thinner than the left because her muscles never fully recovered there after surgery. It's also why she's often wearing a leg support in gym snaps.

“Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how [cEnSorEd] my knees look," Khloe writes. "It's because I've had reconstructive surgery."

“It's funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo 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.”

We definitely wouldn’t have noticed either way (we didn’t even notice she’d altered the first snap), but it’s sad she’s under so much scrutiny.

You do you, Khlo <3
