Kim Kardashian Photoshops Selfies To Fool Fans? [UPDATE: Kim's Denial]
By Anne Lu | January 8, 2014 5:27 PM EST
Kim Kardashian cheated her fans by posting Photoshop versions of her body on Instagram. Kanye West’s soon-to-be wife has been showing off her rather impressive post-partum body a few weeks since giving birth to daughter North in June, but it appears that she’s just fooling everybody with help from the graphics editing program.
The 33-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star claimed that she regained her famous figure right after giving birth by working out and cutting carbs from her diet, but apparently, that’s not all that she did.
She forgot to add that she also used Photoshop to achieve her figure.
Kim recently posted workout pictures on her Instagram account. In the selfie pics, she’s with model Blac Chyna, showing off their curvy backsides and their cleavages. But like her previous selfies, these recent ones are also alleged to have been Photoshopped.
Peeje T, a master Photoshop user who has quite a following on Instagram, explained why he believes that Kim has altered her photos.
“Now, before I begin, I must say this is all purely speculative, [since] I actually heard Kanye [West] might have brought curved doors to Ikea over six years ago,” the Photoshop expert quipped to Radar Online.
“In the first pic, which I’ll call the Booty Pic, I have diagrammed with a red line how the door should look if it was a normal, straight-edged door. 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.”
He added, “There also seems to be a more subtle distortion on the floor. The underlying red line shows how the tiles should be where the blue line follows the actual markings on the floor. You might notice how it follows the same contortion as Kim’s waist and hips.”
“In the second pic, which I’ll call the Stomach Pic, you will notice the door curves out at Kim’s midsection,” he pointed out, adding that “the curvature of the door is actually different from the first picture!”
As for Blac Chyna, Peeje said, “everything looks natural to me ;)”
Peeje didn’t think that Kim even needed Photoshop to look good.
“If I can give any tips to Kim, I would tell her not to use any editing and be proud of that post-pregnancy body. Don’t get me wrong, though, if she really wants a little Photoshop done here and there, she can always give me a call. (PLEASE CALL ME.)”

It’s not only Peeje who thinks that Kim manipulated her selfies to look more curvaceous than actual.
Video and photo production expert Devon Talbert of Devon T Productions also told Radar that he believes that Kim digitally altered her photos.
“I did ask myself why Kim would go through all the trouble of importing her photo to Photoshop to tweak it and then report it as an Instagram. But then again, there are so many photo phone apps that I guess you’re only a few swipes and pinch away from the perfect body [at all times]!”
Reactions on social media vary, with Kim’s fans either defending her use of Photoshop or denying the same completely. Her critics, however, are furious.
“It’s really pathetic the length people will go to alter their appearance, obviously their (sic) thirsty for attention,” Instagram user arpysarumyan wrote.
“I wonder what in her life that she portrays to everyone is real?seeing as she is soooo great at Photoshop,” another named tui_girl added.
UPDATE: Kim’s spokesperson has denied the claims, telling E! News that she “definitely did not” Photoshop the images.
