Well, now the supermodel is saying it WAS retouched, but to make her look worse!
According to a new report, her legal team is on the hunt for the person who made her midsection look flawed, demanding that the culprits they're sorry, and everyone who posted it to take it down.
In fact, the photog who shot the pic gave a statement that it isn't the same image he took of Miz Crawford in Mexico for Marie Claire and that it was stolen and Photoshopped.
And just days after the story exploded, husband Rande Gerber showed the world what his 49-year-old wife looks like naturally (above)!
