Kim Kardashian: I Got Butt Injections For Health Reasons!

by at .

For as long as Kim Kardashian has been famous, she's fended off rumors that she surgically enhances her butt.

Like Heidi Klum and her legs, which are insured for $2 million, Kardashian's backside is part of her public identity.

Rumors about a butt lift are old news, but Kardashian has always felt compelled to defend her God-given money maker.

On August 15th, Kardashian held a livestream to explain to fans that yes, she had a butt injection, but it had to do with a health-related issue.

Kardashian suffers from psoriasis, a condition which causes dry, itchy patches of skin.  

She's been pretty open about it on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but this is the first time we've heard "psoriasis" and "shot in the butt" in the same sentence.

"I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt," Kardashian said, according to Too Fab.

“I lived right behind Kitson [a boutique in Los Angeles near Cedars-Sinai Hospital]. 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."

Some fans will recall a 2007 photo of Kardashian showing off her backside...and something else.

"There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson," she said.

"You see the indent. And I think that's when the rumors started: 'She's had implants.'"

To this day, Kardashian gets the shot.

"Every few years I get a cortisone shot," she said.

"And it's so funny I just got one as my psoriasis was so bad in Vegas."

On a 2011 episode, she filmed an x-ray on her behind to show critics that she was 100% real.  Down there.

"This is a really crazy request but my sisters have dared me to get an ass x-ray because of all the rumors it's not real," Kardashian said at the time.

"I've said numerous times 'I haven't had plastic surgery, I haven't had butt implants,'" she said, adding that no matter how many times she insists it's real, the press will "write whatever they want to write."
Plus, she pointed out, "Who the hell of a normal person gets butt implants?"
