Khloe Kardashian is coming clean about one of her ab-baring photos.
The 31-year-old reality star posted an Instagram picture in February, showing off her toned tummy as she pulled down her gray leggings and snapped a selfie in the mirror. However, fans immediately noticed the pic had been Photoshopped and began calling her out for it.
Thus, Khloe fessed up to editing the pic and responded by posting the original image shortly thereafter. Now she's revealing why she used Photoshop in the first place.
Khloe took to her app and explained that she was in a car accident when she was 16-years-old, and she injured her knee very badly.
"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," she recalled. "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."
She's had several reconstructive surgeries on her leg following the accident and is often forced to wear a knee brace while working out. Also due to the surgeries, her right leg is much smaller than her left.
"Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f--ked up my knees look," she explained. "My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered."
This is why she Photoshopped the ab picture above. "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."
