Kim Kardashian has attempted to explain away those photos of her rumoured bum pads.
The 35-year-old was papped celebrating sister Khloe’s birthday wearing a tight black pencil skirt that appeared to show off her underwear – or rather, underwear that accentuated her derriere.
Many assumed she was wearing bum pads, but now, Kim has hit back by explaining that she does not need to enhance her butt, thank you very much.
‘Another day, another crazy rumor!’ Kim wrote on her website. ‘Apparently, I was caught wearing butt pads.’
Kim continued: ‘Here’s what really happened: A couple years ago, I wore a skirt in Miami that was totally sheer. I had no idea it was SO see-through on my butt. I definitely never want that to happen again, so now I always wear shapewear.’
‘Sometimes, they have a sheer cutout like these capris from Body Wrap, so that’s what you’re seeing in the picture,’ she added. ‘So, the fact is: I don’t wear butt pads! At this point, I think everyone has seen my butt naked and knows I don’t need them, LOL!’
That’s right, Kim was actually wearing a pair of knickers that have a cut-out hole in the back (we know, we’re confused too), to helpfully ‘lift’ the derriere.
We are so, SO trialling a pair of these. Watch this space…
