The Kardashian-Jenner sisters are showing support for Khloé Kardashian after she went live on Instagram to show her body isn’t altered digitally.
Khloé has finally spoken out on a viral bikini photo that was accidentally shared and prompted her and her team to threaten legal action just to get the picture out from the internet, saying she’s struggled with body image issues her whole life.
“Every day, I am told by my family and friends who love me that I am beautiful, but I know that it needs to be believed from within,” Khloé, 36, wrote in a lengthy statement, justifying her choice to threaten legal action against those who published the photo.
“Just do you and make sure your heart is happy.”
The”Keeping Up With the Kardashian” star’s mom, Kris Jenner, gushed over her daughter’s “heart” in the comments section.
“Khloé you are the kindest most loving, most supportive, most beautiful heart I have ever known, and I adore you and am so proud of you…. you are an inspiration to all of us and I appreciate and love you each and every single day,” the famed momager wrote.
“Thank you for teaching the rest of us to be kind and to not judge…. you are one of a kind…. what a blessing you are. You are a gift.”
Kendall and Kylie Jenner also praised their half-sister in the comments.
“Yes! you beautiful, strong, HEALTHY queen,” Kendall commented.
“love you soooo much,” Kylie wrote.
Sister Kim Kardashian, who helped Khloé record the live, also expressed her support. “I love you Khloe,” Kim wrote.
“The colour edited photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant,” Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, said in a statement.
“Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.”
Another source said the photo was snapped while Khloé, whom fans have called out for her ever-changing face, was mid-conversation over the weekend and featured some edits; however, the edits were not at the normal level for campaigns for her clothing label, Good American, which bills itself as “Representing Body Acceptance.”
The insider also said it’s not uncommon for teams to request that accounts delete photos that are re-shared illegally.
