Let the Kim Kardashian photoshop scandal begin. The editor of Paper Magazine has confirmed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s naked photos were, in fact, retouched.
The magazine’s editor, Mickey Boardman, confirmed to Us Weekly that photoshop was used in Kim Kardashian’s photos, but that shouldn’t be a reason for fans to hate on the reality star.
“Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level, but what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her. But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing. That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an a– that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kim Kardashian’s naked butt and full frontal photos made a huge splash online Wednesday in an attempt by the magazine to “break the internet.” Fans immediately began to make their own memes of Kim K.’s booty pic, as well as speculate about whether the pictures were photoshopped.
As reported by the International Business Times, Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, was very supported of his wife’s new naked photos, and it seems that he’s proud to have Kim on his arm and as his partner.
Some say these naked photos were Kardashian’s way of celebrating her body one last time before getting pregnant with her second child, and continuing to build her family with Kanye West, with whom she already has a daughter, North West.
Meanwhile, while Kim Kardashian’s photoshop was confirmed by Paper Magazine editor Mickey Boardman, other celebrities are showing off their unretouched naked selfies, and speaking out on Kim’s racy photos.
Chelsea Handler and Perez Hilton both showed off their assets in nude selfies posted to Instagram, while Glee star Naya Rivera, who has been compared to Kim Kardashian in looks, spoke out in disapproval of Kim’s magazine cover by commenting on Kardashian’s Instagram post.
“You’re someone’s mother.”
While Kim Kardashian was busy breaking the internet with her naked photos, other members of her family were making headlines as well. Khloe is reportedly back with ex-boyfriend French Montana, Kylie Jenner’s rumored boyfriend Tyga was arrested, and Khloe and Scott Disick stunned fans with an Instagram post about the KKK, which they later removed.
It looks like it’s all just another normal week in the Kardashian world.
