Khloé left ‘insecure’ over body shaming
Khloé Kardashian K has confessed to feeling insecure over unflattering images of her post-baby body, which surfaced after she was pictured for the first time since giving birth last month. Posting on her website, the 33-year- old reality star – who was snapped hitting the gym the next day – admitted, “When I saw myself in those first post-pregnancy paparazzi photos, I couldn’t believe how big my booty looked! I can’t wait to tone up again and get my body back to where it was.”
Internet trolls were quick to slam the new mum’s body, with one posting, “I don’t want to hear ‘she just had a baby’. No! She just had surgery”, while another added, “Khloé needs to calm down with the butt fillers.”
It followed public humiliation for Khloé, after her boyfriend Tristan Thompson was caught up in a cheating scandal just days before she gave birth to their daughter, True. The basketball star was snapped kissing and entering a hotel with a woman thought to be stripper Lani Blair, 28, and accused of further infidelities.
Now sources say Khloé – who revealed before the birth that Tristan, 27, had made her feel “beautiful” during pregnancy – can’t take any more humiliation.
A source says, “Khloé was mortified over those pics. She’s been keeping a low profile since having True and has only just been given the go-ahead to start working out again, so wasn’t feeling her best. She wore a figurehugging outfit to flatter her shape, but was shocked by how her bottom looked. Khloé felt beautiful during pregnancy, but Tristan’s cheating scandal dented her confidence. Now she feels even more insecure about her body.”
Surgeon Mark Ho-asjoe tells Closer, “Khloé’s bum doesn’t look real. She’s likely still holding weight from the pregnancy, but she may also have had some fat from either her stomach or thighs injected into her bottom.”
Meanwhile, Khloé has yet to comment on whether she’s forgiven Tristan for his alleged cheating, but the pair sparked speculation they were back on when they were spotted at a restaurant with friends and on a cinema date last week.
The source adds, “Khloé is still feeling confused, but she loves Tristan. And her main focus is True. She’s also determined to throw herself into her exercise routine to get her body back and feel good about herself again.”
