Khloe Kardashian has spoken out about why this image was photoshopped

A couple of months ago, Khloe Kardashian received some backlash after people noticed one of her Instagram images had been edited.

For anyone unfamiliar to his, Khloe retouched her leg which caused the doorframe behind her to distort and it wasn't long before the edit attracted attention.

Eagle-eyed commenters noticed that the door frame behind Khloe looked a little odd and so Khloe deleted the post and reposted the unedited image with this caption: "If only hatin burned calories how dope yall would be. Too bad it doesn't. Here's the OG shot. The petty movement ain't cute. Oh and I almost forgot... Namaste".

People were of the opinion that Khloe had edited it because she wasn't happy with her appearance but in a new post on her website, Khloe has spoken about the real reasoning behind the Photoshop.

Spotted on People, Khloe explained that she was in a car crash at the age of 16 and she needed reconstructive surgery on her knees.

The reality TV star wrote: "My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered."

"The reason I've had so many of these surgeries – and always wear a knee brace for my workouts – is because I was in a car accident when I was 16".

She went on to say: "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!"

Discussing why she edited the image and the furore which followed, Khloe said: "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".
