Ever since Kim Kardashian posted a belfie and an absie of herself to Instagram looking somehow curvaceous and abs-tastically slim at the same time -- a mere six months after giving birth -- the cry has gone up that the pics were Photoshopped. Kim has been accused of this before, but this time there seems to be a lot of proof. "She has the curviest door in the world," posted one incredulous Instragrammer. Others echoed the sentiment. Indeed, it was clear that the background of Kim's photos looked warped -- meaning one thing. Kim's photos have been manipulated to make her look skinnier.
RadarOnline got an expert go to over the photos and he agreed, saying:
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.
Wow, Kim expanding her breasts? The woman clearly has big boobs. Why bother with that? But there's more. The expert contends that she also nipped in her belly, waist, and hips. No word on whether she expanded her famous derriere, but she's accused of doing that here too.
One commenter identifies the Photoshop tool Kim used as "Photoshop Liquify." Says one photography expert about the tool: "Most people use this to take off five to 15 pounds from their subject." The tool is generally used to give the body more of an "hour glass" shape.
You'd think that given all of this evidence (the picture's background is so warped it looks like something out of a Dali painting) that Kim would fess up -- or at least remain silent. But instead, her PR person denied the whole thing, saying, "This story is false. She did not retouch the selfie."

Look, there's nothing wrong with touching up selfies, if that's your deal. But why deny it? When it's so obvious? Instead, Kim continues to insist that everything on her is natural -- her weight loss the product of hard work and diet.
There's no doubt she did lose weight and probably does work hard and diet. But maybe she feels she needs that extra "something" since her pics will be dissected by the planet. I'd probably feel that way too.
But thinking you can fool everyone is just delusional. However, I suppose that a woman who has a fake reality show and once had a fake marriage isn't exactly going to be au naturel with her selfies.
Do you think she needs to tell the truth?
