Khloe Kardashian breaks silence on leaked photo with body image message

Khloe Kardashian focuses on a recently leaked bikini photo of herself that she disliked.

Amid the social media debate surrounding the unauthorized image shared online this week, the 36-year-old Keeping up with the Kardashians star posted an extensive message on Instagram on Wednesday, April 7, about struggling with her body image.

She added topless footage filmed in a bathroom, along with video from an Instagram Live she shot on the same day revealing her belly. Khloe captioned the post: “Yeah, I did a live to show you that this isn’t photoshopped.”

In the post, the reality TV mainstay wrote, “Hey guys, this is me and my body, not retouched and unfiltered. The photo posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who’s been struggling with body image all her life, as someone a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad light or doesn’t capture your body the way it is after you’ve worked so hard to get it to this point – and then share it with the world – you should have every right to ask it shouldn’t be shared – no matter who you are. “

Khloe went on to explain that “my whole life of constant ridicule and judgment” is “too much to bear,” especially comments that compare her to her sisters or question the identity of her biological father.
