The Kardashians aren’t shy when it comes to showing off their stunning bikini bodies on social media, but a recent photo of Khloe Kardashian showing off her skin has sparked some controversy.
An unedited photo of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star in a bikini made its way online over the weekend to the surprise of the famous family’s camp, which allegedly threatened legal action if the replicas were not removed.
“The edited color photo was taken of Khloé during a private family gathering and posted on social media without permission by mistake from an attendee,” Tracy Romulus, who serves as Kim Kardashian’s KKW Brands marketing director, told Page Six in a statement.
“Khloé looks beautiful, but it is within the copyright owner’s right not to want an image removed that is not intended to be published,” the statement continued.

Just a few weeks ago, the mother of one spoke about how bullying comments and negative headlines about her appearance affect her confidence.
“I don’t want anyone to kiss my ass,” the 36-year-old reality star wrote on Instagram. “I’m not asking for that. But what I’m asking is for people to realize what articles like this do to someone’s soul and confidence.”
Khloe’s comments came after a fan posted a TikTok video in her defense. The user responded by seeing numerous headlines comparing the star’s appearance over the years.

That is the person I am. I like to defend what is correct. “
