First world problems, much? Reality star Kim Kardashian is allegedly battling a new mental health issue after a paparazzo captured multiple unflattering photos of her in a bikini last April as she walked along the beach.
“You take pictures and people just body shame you,” Kardashian lamented on Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
“It’s, like, literally giving me body dysmorphia,” she said. “Like, I’m so insecure, I just can’t take it.”
It’s not clear whether Kardashian actually sat down with a psychiatrist and received a diagnosis of body dysmorphia disorder, a serious condition that causes sufferers to have severe anxiety and adopt obsessive behaviors because of their perceived body flaws.
Kardashian – whose curvaceous butt allegedly broke the internet last year looking much smoother than it did in the cellulite-plagued beach snaps – was in Mexico to celebrate sister Kourtney’s 38th birthday.
In Sunday’s episode, Kourtney encourages Kim to put her chin up and go jet-skiing with her, but a heartbroken Kim turns down the offer.
“I can’t have fun after seeing those pics, there’s others where I look so good and it’s just from a different angle,” she observed.
Even though the pictures emerged months ago, Kardashian has gone on the record multiple times to describe how much the impromptu photoshoot has damaged her psyche. In June, she told the ladies of “The View” that the pics were doctored in order to make her look worse.
“I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them,” she argued, conceding that “I was definitely not in my best shape” at the time due to multiple surgeries leaving her unable to work out.
