Looks like Kim Kardashian may be manipulating more than just the hearts and minds of television watchers everywhere.
Ms. Kardashian is famous, you see, for a few things: being pretty, selling klothing at Sears, dating Kanye West, having his daughter, having a dad who was O.J. Simpson's trial lawyer, having a stepdad who was an Olympian, having a batshit mom and having siblings with whom she interacts, at times on camera.
She is also famous, of course, for her hot bod.
But it turns out we may have all been worshiping a false idol in the form of Kimmy's humps. Kim (or her butt! Who knows?) may be Photoshopping Instagram pics to make certain parts of her anatomy look bigger. At least, that's what Page Six is positing.
Take, for example, this tasteful recent selfie:
Curvy! But the Post consulted with "well-known Photoshop expert Peeje T" (sounds reliable), and he said the masterpiece was clearly "manipulated." From the Post:
He explained that the curved doorframe in the picture was the giveaway. “You can definitely see a gap at the same level as Kim’s chest. This would be caused by using a tool to expand her breasts.”
Gasp! The same is true of the second pic, which the expert says shows a pulled-in waistline:
Over at The Cut, the issue was heavily debated, and someone made a .gif, providing pretty solid proof that barring the possibility of a Silly Putty door jamb, Photoshop hijinx are afoot.
Ms. Kardashian's publicist fired back at the Post with quite the definitive statement: "This story is false. She did not retouch the selfie." Sounds dubious. We may never know the real truth.
Kim's Butt Is Dead; Long Live Kim's Butt!
