Kim Kardashian West has been in the limelight for more than a decade. With her social media presence and her reality TV show, she shares a great deal of her personal life with millions of fans. But, one thing she is sick and tired of discussing is her butt. Kardashian West has been famed for her large derriere since she became a celebrity. Even her mother, Kris Jenner, has shared that she believes people looked up to her daughters in the beginning because they represented a more “curvy” population.

But, despite being known for her backside, the 39-year-old is tired of talking about it. In several interviews, she confessed that she’s no longer interested in people talking about or questioning how large it is. This is in contrast to how she felt years ago because the KKW Fragrance founder has spent a lot of time talking about it herself. In fact, there was even an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians where she brought a doctor on to “prove” that her butt was real.

Kim Kardashian West has been talking about her derriere for years

Fans of Kardashian West have been arguing about her butt for years now. Some say it is real, while others are convinced that it is fake and the mom of four gets butt injections to make it bigger. But where did these speculations originate from? Back in 2016, Kardashian West told Us Weekly that she believes the rumors all stem from photos, which were taken back in 2007.

Why people think the perfume mogul’s butt is fake

“There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson. You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started: ‘She’s had implants,’” Kardashian West admitted. But just what caused the indent? The KKW Beauty owner shared that she does get shots injected into her butt, but it has nothing to do with physical appearances. In fact, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star says she has to get them because of her psoriasis. Psoriasis is caused by excess skin cell buildup, which can result in dry, red, itchy, patches of skin.

Kardashian West gets cortisol injections in her butt to treat her psoriasis

“I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson [a Los Angeles based boutique}. One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course, I get a huge indent on my butt,” Kardashian West revealed. Kardashian West also revealed that this is something that she has to do every few years when her psoriasis becomes unmanageable.

Still, despite Kardashian West’s explanations, some people aren’t willing to believe that cortisol shots are the only thing she’s injected into her butt. Recently, she posted a throwback picture of herself on Instagram which had even her most loyal fans skeptical. Whether Kardashian West is telling the truth or not really makes no difference to us. As long as she’s happy with her body, who are we to judge?
