Earlier this week, photos surfaced of her famous derriere that suggested Kim was wearing butt pads.

The sheer skirt she wore made evident a conspicuous outline on her backside that many assumed was caused by enhancement padding.

But Kim, a staunch defender of her heiny’s authenticity, jumped on her app to dispel the rumors as untrue.

“Here’s what really happened: A couple years ago, I wore a skirt in Miami that was totally sheer. I had no idea it was SO see-through on my butt.

"I definitely never want that to happen again, so now I always wear shapewear.”

Well, on that she has a point.
