Kylie Jenner's Huge Scar Can Finally Be Explained

kylie jennerBattle wounds! If you have a lot of time on your hands, you may have noticed a fairly large scar on Kylie Jenner's left leg. As it turns out, Kylie's had the scar since she was 5 years old and she got it in a super (super) painful way. But to her, it's badge of honor. In fact, Kylie just posted about her scar on Instagram, talking about how much she loves it -- but the crazy part is where the scar came from!


In a post on Wednesday, Kylie added an up-close shot of her leg scar, along with the simple caption, "I love my scar." Love it. Good for her for loving one of her imperfections. 

Here's the pic:

That's a pretty serious scar! And, as it turns out, Kylie got the wound during a game of hide-and-seek with sister Kendall.

A few years ago in an interview with Celebuzz, Kylie gave the details of the injury. Warning: Not for the faint of heart!

When I was about 5 my sister and I were playing hide-and-seek and I hid inside this really tall enclosed gate. After a while when my sister didn't find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It's smaller now though because I grew!

Holy moly, that sounds painful. It's hard not to cringe just thinking about it!

At least the memory of her scar is a good one. Clearly it was beyond painful when it happened, but now every time she looks down at her leg, she can be reminded of a fun game of hide-and-seek with her sister when she was little and carefree.

And, for what it's worth, scars can be pretty sexy.
