Khloe Kardashian addresses a recently leaked bikini photo of herself that she did not love.
Amid the social media debate surrounding the unauthorized image shared online this week, the 36-year-old Keeps up with the Kardashians star sent a long message to Instagram on Wednesday, April 7, about struggling with her body image.
She included topless footage filmed in a bathroom along with video from an Instagram Live she had recorded the same day revealing her midsection. Khloe wrote the caption about the post: “Yeah, I did a live one to show you that all this is not photoshopped.”
In the announcement, the reality TV cornerstone wrote: “Hi guys, this is me and my body untouched and unfiltered. The picture that was published this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image all his life, when someone take a photo of you who is not flattering in poor lighting or does not capture your body as it is after working so hard to get it to this point – and then share it with the world – you must have the right to pray whether it should not be shared – no matter who you are. “
Khloe went on to explain that “constant ridicule and judgment all my life” has been “too much to bear”, especially comments that compare her to her sisters or question her biological father’s identity.
