The 35-year-old reality TV star confessed she has to go through the procedure of getting a cortisone injection into her posterior “every few years” because she has psoriasis, a skin condition which causes red, flaky patches which can become itchy or sore.
She said: “Every few years I get a cortisone shot. I just got one as my psoriasis was so bad in Vegas. That’s a little unknown fact of me – I have to get cortisone shots every few years.”
The raven-haired beauty first learned she had the condition because her mother Kris Jenner spotted a rash on her leg. But after Kim – who has kids North, three, and Saint, eight months, with husband Kanye West – had her first cortisone shot speculation spread that she’d had butt implants as pictures emerged of her with a dent in her derriere.
Speaking on a live stream on her official website, she recalled: “I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson [a boutique]. One of my neighbours was a dermatologist at Cedars [Cedars-Sinai Hospital]. 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. 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 rumours started, ‘She’s had implants.’ ”
Kim admitted she has “learned to live” with the condition and that it “doesn’t bother” her too much.
