The 31-year-old admitted to photoshopping her leg in this Instagram photo, but the reason why she did it might surprise you.

“Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how fu*ked up my knees look,” she started. “It’s because I’ve had reconstructive surgery, you assholes! My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.”
That difference in size, as it turns out, is the reason why she photoshopped her leg – her thinner leg.
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.
As it turns out, the reality TV star was in a serious car accident when she was 16 and that’s why she’s had to have so many surgeries for her knee.
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. 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!
Knee brace or not, we live for Khloé’s gym selfies:
