If you’ve been keeping up with the Kardashians, you may have heard about Khloé Kardashian‘s unedited photo. But if you’re not up to date, let us explain the drama around Khloé Kardashian’s unauthorized photo.
The New York Post’s Page Six reported on Monday, April 5, that the Kardashians are trying to remove an unedited photo of Khloé from the internet. The picture shows the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star by a pool in a bikini and looks somewhat different than the edited photos Khloé’s followers are used to seeing on her Instagram. Page Six confirmed that the photo, which does feature some edits, is authentic and was taken over the weekend while Khloé was in the middle of a conversation.
Two days after Page Six’s report, Khloé broke her silence on the controversy with an Instagram about how she’s often called the “fat” and “ugly” sister among the Kardashians because of how she looks. She accompanied the post with a nearly nude, “un-retouched” video of her body.Source: Instagram
“Hey guys, this is me and my body unretouched and unfiltered,” she wrote. “The photo that was posted this week was beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after working so hard to get it to this point — and then shares it to the world — you should have every right to ask for it not to be shared — no matter who you are.”
She continued, “In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule and judgment my entire life to be perfect and to meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear.”
She went on to list examples of comments she’s heard about her body. “‘Khloé is the fat sister.’ ‘Khloé is the ugly sister.’ ‘Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different.’ ‘The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery,'” she wrote. “You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is, but I will say if you hear anything enough then you will start to believe it. This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me.”
Khloé also explained that, in the same way she wears makeup and gets her nails done, she uses filters and edits her photos to “present myself to the world the way I want to be seen.” She continued, “It’s exactly what I will continue to do unapologetically.” She ended her post, “My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It’s not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable anymore.”
According to Tracy Romulus, chief marketing office for KKW Brands, the picture was posted by mistake by an assistant, who has since taken the photo down. (Page Six reposted the photo on their site.) “The color edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands,” Romulus said in a statement to Page Six. “Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.”
Us Weekly also reported that the unauthorized picture of Khloé was taken the same day that the reality TV star took the following photos of herself in a purple bikini. The pictures showed Khloé in a two-piece as she lounged in a chair. “The Purple Eater ,” she captioned the picture.Source: Instagram
Instagram account @DeuxMoi also claimed they received a DM that Khloé’s older sister, Kim Kardashian, DM’d another Instagram account, telling them to delete a repost of the picture because it “had been doctored” and was taken in the “worst lighting.” @DeuxMoi also claimed that they saw the alleged DM.
In a post on her now-defunct website in 2016, Khloé confessed to using Photoshop to make her legs look the same size after she was in a car accident at 16 years old. She explained that the accident resulted in right leg looking much smaller than her left because of the reconstructive surgeries.
“Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how fucked up my knees look,” she wrote. “My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.”
She continued, “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.”
