And believe it or not, the beauty revealed it actually has to do with… her knees?! She wrote:
"Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f*cked up my knees look. It's because I've had reconstructive surgery, you assholes!"
Except when it came to this reworked picture, commenters were actually focused on the warped door hinge than her leg joints!
But KoKo's getting there, we promise!
Anyway, the TV personality spilled that the only reason she tweaked the photo is because her legs are apparently two different sizes due to her knee surgery:
"My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered. 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."
Okay, so that actually makes total sense!
But Miz Kardashian didn't stop there! She wanted to make those haters feel EXTRA bad about calling her out by bringing up the horrific details of the car crash that resulted in those procedures in the first place, adding:
"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). I was speeding and the other car ran a stop sign. I was 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."
So, there you have it, Perezcious readers! That's why the lovely lady tweaked the upload! And she hopes that scary story stays with you all, because she threw in:
"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!"
Okay, okay, Khloé we get it! You made your case! However, the whole point of body positivity is to love the skin you're in, mismatched legs and all!
