A Kim Kardashian controversy is brewing. Photoshop allegations have also been confirmed by the editor of Paper magazine. When the pictures of Mrs Kim Kardashian West in the latest issue of Paper surfaced, the internet went wild.

Some blasted North West‘s mom for revealing too much, few mocked her with hilarious memes and others wondered, how many hours of Photoshopping did it take to make her look like that? The answer is several hours.

Mickey “Mr. Mickey” Boardman, who is the editorial director of the mag, spoke to US Magazine where he confessed that the reality TV icon’s figure was retouched. Boardman said:

“Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level.”

Boardman gave the following unnecessary information about the spread. Kardashian’s body was “oiled up” by her friend and makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, and legendary French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, who is a genius with lighting, made the pictures appear amazing.

The editor went on to share that Kim Kardashian’s famous butt is totally authentic, he explained:

“But what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her. But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing.That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an ass that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.”

According to Boardman, Monsieur Jean-Paul Goude was interested in recreating his 1976 picture titled “The Champagne Incident,” which originally featured model, Carolina Beaumont, but after talking to Kim Kardashian, they decided to go further. Boardman added:

“There was some ass-related thing that was proposed but we weren’t sure what was going to happen.We were really just planning on recreating the [famous] champagne shot…but she came in and was like, ‘Let’s, you know, let’s just go there!’ She and Jean-Paul just got into it with each other and got excited. She’s not shy about taking her clothes off, and the next thing [we knew], magic was happening.”

Kim Kardashian was a pleasure to work with and is not afraid to reveal her body, according to the editor. Reports have surfaced claiming that Kardashian decided to do the sexy and risque Paper shoot because she is trying to get pregnant, and wanted to have some fun before giving North a sibling.

According to Examiner, it was Kardashian’s idea to go naked, she wanted to “break the internet” and she was not even paid to do it. Goude said:

“Kim’s attitude was ‘if we’re gonna do it, let’s do it, let’s really go there.’ And it was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. But we [Paper] didn’t say ‘let’s do a cover with your butt hanging out.’ She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing led to another, and history in the making!”

The Kim Kardashian controversy also has to do with the fact that photographer Jean-Paul Goude has a long history of using women of color in outrage fashion for his pictures. Some people find that his shoot with Kim continues in that long tradition of blatantly flirting with racism.

Beaumont, the model from the original photo, is black and those commentators always believed the imagery was tainted with racial insensitivity. Kim’s close association to African-Americans makes the new images also a bit racist, these critics suggest.

No one involved in the shoot has responded to the racism charge.

What are your thoughts on this Kim Photoshop scandal? Is the editor right about her authentic bottom? What say you about the Kim Kardashian controversy regarding race?

    This is not sexy, she has changed for the worst since she married kayne. In my opinion she has made a lot of bad decisions and this is the worst. She has acted like she is better than her sister and everyone else. She has done things to her sisters with out there permission and showed them disrespect…back to the naked body, she has a daughter and possibly a baby on the way…when either of them get in there early teens they will see what there mother has done and go totally got into shock how is she going to get away with this one…We teach our children to hold themselves at a higher standard and to respect themselves….she has gone to far and it is not cute or sexy…I realize she is a model and young ladies all over the world look up to beautiful women, so now are all of the young girls going to start flashing naked pictures of themselves…this girl needs to get a grip on reality and seek help from a professional.

      What do you mean? She’s just like her mother and will pimp her own daughter out soon. Just watch and see.

      • Missielee says:

        I agree with you, she and her mother have no morals.they will do anything for publicity even if they have to look like sluts, what do I mean look like!!

    • lilly says:

      Um…. sad to say young women all over the world already take nudes with no consequences. Instagram need I remind you was hacked and there is millions of pictures of naked selfie tweens and teens on the internet. I’m not condoning it however, what’s one more. Kim K. Jennifer J Law) at least it was professionally done and she was a willing participant and knows that it’s out there. many of these women were not counting on getting hacked I believe we need to teach young women the consequences and the better decisions that they should be making. I’m in no a Kim K fan however, we can use this for some good. I’d rather teach my daughter about making the right decisions and letting her know that unless you’re famous clothing is not an optional requirment in photos of any kind!!

    I used to like Kim. I truly think she is a huge pig now. All that money cannot buy her class. She dates and married a loser and is a mother for crying out loud. Her butt is for her and her husband! Not me and the world to look at. When will she actually do something meaningful in life? We all know that answer! lol

  3. Lynne says:

    OMG! She looks like a cartoon, Evil step sisters in Cinderella, or characters from Lil Abner. She is so addicted to fame she sells her body like a prostitute. Articles talk about her posing nude, SHE ALREADY HAS! She may as well pose spread eagle since she has shown the world everything else. She will raise North, (stupid name)just as she was raised. No morality or humanity. It’s all about the K’s.

  4. Sandra says:

    If people really think her booty is real is crazy she gets fat injected into her booty!! Look at photos from 6 years ago her booty did not look like that. I feel sorry for her and the rest of her family all caught up into the fame and lost who they really were and I am sure their father would not be supportive with their choices. It is truly amazing what people will do to be famous, she loves attention negative or positive attention is better than no attention.

    • Priscilla Freeman says:

      Her butt is bigger than it was but then she had a baby and when that happens it is almost impossible to go back to the way you were before being stretched out of shape.

  5. Susan says:

    That mother of her,s really raised a “class-act”! Naught. Be original and do something creative, “with your clothes on”, then we might think better of you. What a concept ,huh? It just proves no matter how much money you have, it definetly does not buy class, which u definetly lack. Keep your clothes and do something that your daughter can be proud of as she get,s lder. the porn tape, and ass shots etc, aren,t gonna do it …

    A whore is a whore, what can you say.

  7. Marc says:

    It’s all about MONEY and FAME with this TACKIE KLAN…nothing more, nothing less. Momma KLAN leader is DISGUSTING, Pimping her daughters out, YES all of them. SADLY, she totally IGNORES her son Rob, who is a F’n mess. Drugs, overweight. Momma better open her eyes, as if she doesn’t, Tragedy is bound to KNOCK on her front door. If I were Bruce Jenner, I’d grab Rob and give him all the support and attention I could. Momma K certainly doesn’t care about the kid. SAD isn’t the word !!

  8. Catie says:

    There are some real poor role models out there for my 3 daughters. This would be one of them. Another is Nikki Minaj. Why do these woman swim in the gutter thinking that will garner adulation. They are so blessed to be given such opportunities to succeed in life? They must have zero self worth to behave the way they do. I just pray for their souls I really do. Because if you remove the foul mouth and the nakedness what do they have? Have they helped the hungry by doing this? Have they helped the homeless by doing this? They have been given a platform to connect with millions and they merely stroke their own egos.

  9. Priscilla Freeman says:

    Only in America is a person famous for their having a gigantic mega butt! Kinda sad, don’t you think?

    Looking forward to the day that the name KARDASHIAN is not to be found anywhere on the internet. That shallow tribe is nauseating
