Whatever you think of Kim Kardashian and her four sisters, you're likely aware that the entire family has long claimed that they have not had any sort of plastic surgery. That's especially true of Kim and her famously large behind.
Instead of crediting plastic surgery, Kim claims that diet, exercise, genetics, and shapewear are behind her figure. Just recently, the controversy around Kardashian's figure reignited after the star posted a throwback photo to Instagram. The throwback almost instantly generated controversy among fans.
In the photo, which is of Kim in what appears to be her teen years, it's fairly easy to see exactly how different her body looks than it does today. The photo, which was captioned "Baby K," almost instantly generated pushback from critics.
"Crazy how much money can change a body," one user wrote on the post. "And you still say that you booty is natural? LOL yeah, right," another wrote on the post. Clearly, the photo may have caused more trouble than it was worth.
While some Instagram users were hung up on the fact that Kardashian refuses to say that she's had work done, others were simply impressed that the work looked so good.
"It would be nice to know what doctors they go to because Kim, Khloe, and Kylie have the exact same bodies now, and the doctors did a good job," said one user. Another quickly chimed in agreement: "Yes! I wish they would give us the deets instead of trying to tell everyone it’s all-natural."
Kim recently launched her own brand of shapewear, and has been candid about the help that it's given her on a variety of red carpets. Although she's copped to shapewear, Kardashian maintains that that's the only unnatural assistance she receives to achieve her shape.
Still, many fans remain skeptical, saying that her butt does not match the rest of her body. If Kardashian did have plastic surgery, she's unlikely to ever admit to it. Instead, she'll maintain that it's natural.
Some fans came to her defense on the post while others accused her of lying. "You can tell she already had something going on back there, whether it’s real now or not… who cares by the way," one user wrote.
For those convinced she's had plastic surgery, this particular mystery may never be totally solved. Kim is unlikely to confess that she's had it. After all, if she's lying, she's been doing it fairly successfully for more than a decade now.
