Khloe Kardashian defends herself after Photoshop furore

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian has hit back at critics who slammed her for sharing a Photoshopped gym selfie, more than two months after she posted it.

The reality star posted a picture of herself showing off her toned abs following a hard core workout on her Instagram account back in February (16), and fans were quick to spot a bend in the hinges of the door behind her, which suggested Khloe had altered the image.

While the 31-year-old was quick to admit she had Photoshopped the snap, she didn't fully explain her reasons until Monday (09May16).

"Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f**ked up my knees look," she wrote on her app. "It's because I've had reconstructive surgery, you a**holes! 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."

Khloe went on to explain she still bears the scars of her many surgeries following a car crash when she was just 16 - and 15 years on she has to wear a knee brace when she is working out.

"To this day, I remember the exact streets (Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon)," she continued. "I was speeding and the other car ran a stop sign. I 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.

"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!"Read more at:bridesmaid dress
