Remember Khloe Kardashian’s epic Complex cover? Yeh, well that was all Kim Kardashian‘s doing.
Earlier this year, Khloe graced the front of the magazine looking impossibly sexy in a sheer panelled Animale bodysuit, pushing her derriere out to the camera.
It was the first time the 31-year-old had bared her body so boldly in a shoot, and showed that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was feeling super confident about her fit physique.
But did you ever wonder how the provocative shoot actually came about?
Well, in a deleted clip from KUWTK, Kim Kardashian reveals that it was her who encouraged her sister to do it, and actually used Kylie Jenner to make Khloe jealous… Say what?!
The clip kicks off with Kourtney Kardashian talking about the brilliant reception the racy shoot had got.
‘Everyone at the gym today was freaking out over Khloe’s Complex,’ Kourtney told Kim and Kylie. ‘No like this just brought Khloe’s stock up like 50 percent,’ Kim replied.
And then came Kim’s confession. Revealing she used her little half-sister as bait to push Khloe to reach outside of her comfort zone, Kim admitted to Kylie:
‘Do you know that I told her that you got offered the Complex cover and I was like, “Kylie’s gonna get your cover and this is your one time, do you want your 17-year-old sister to outshine you? Step it up right now or Kylie’s doing the cover.”‘
Hang on, so she pitted her two sisters against each other? Sneaky tactics, Kimmy! Still, it worked.
‘And she’s like “OK OK I’ll do it I’ll do it.” So I used you to coax her into doing it'”, she added.
And how did Kylie react? Well, she actually seemed pretty flattered. ‘Thank you’, she replied.
Whilst we may not agree with Kim’s tactics, the sentiment was clearly a sweet one. And boy, was that cover worth it…
