In a new blog on her app, the 31-year-old comes clean about why she decided to digitally alter her old Instagram.
Khloe explained that injuries from a car crash when she was 16 led her to undergo multiple reconstructive surgeries on her leg.
"My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered," Kardashian said. "It's funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo below because I Photoshopped it."
The reality star added, "Yes, I did Photoshop it, but I was trying to make my thinner leg look bigger to match my other leg!!! All I want are big, thick thighs and I hate how skinny my legs are."
Kardashian had first found herself in hot water after followers pointed out a curved door in her Instagram, spurring claims she'd digitally altered her own photo.
Khloe later righted the wrong by taking down her photoshopped image and putting up the "OG shot."
The blog is one of the first times Kardashian has gotten candid about the car crash she was in. Previously, the star talked about a "major concussion" she got from the accident that resulted in her thinking that older sister Kourtney was her mom.
