Kim Kardashian blasts Fergie video photoshop rumors

Kim Kardashian has shot down rumors suggesting her post-baby body has been digitally enhanced in FERGIE's new music video for M.i.l.f. $.

Kanye West's wife, who gave birth to second child Saint in December (15), has been showing off her slim physique in recent weeks after shedding her pregnancy pounds with regular work outs and the help of dieting program Weight Watchers.


She further flaunted her sexy figure with a raunchy appearance in a clip for singer Fergie's new promo, released last week (ends01Jul16), in which a blonde Kim douses herself in milk while wearing a tight white T-shirt and cut off denim shorts.


The footage prompted some critics to question whether her small waist had been altered using computer software program Photoshop, but the 35-year-old shut down the claims in a post on social media app Snapchat late on Sunday (03Jul16).


Sharing behind-the-scenes clips from the video shoot, Kim made her feelings clear by writing, "F**kYoPhotoShop", before crediting a waist-training corset for her sexy new look, adding, "#Corsetlife".


Kim and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe have all previously posted images of themselves wearing the popular corset contraptions on social media, claiming the belts have helped them achieve their famous hourglass figures.


The new mom is joined in Fergie's video by Ciara, Devon Aoki, Amber Valletta, and models Chrissy Teigen and Alessandra Ambrosio, who both appear with their children.


It's not the first time Kim has been accused of having her image digitally retouched. She sparked similar controversy in 2014, after posing for her infamous 'break the Internet' nude photoshoot for Paper magazine, but magazine editors quickly dismissed the allegations.


"So many people have asked us, 'Oh, is that butt... it can't be real, it's padded, you added to it, in retouching...' That is all 100 percent Kim Kardashian," Paper's editorial director, Mickey Boardman, told E! News at the time.


However, he confessed a few changes were made to the cover photo, simply to "make it look as good as it can for a magazine cover".


"We did not create a body. We did not shave pounds of her waist," he added. "That is who she is. That's what she looks like. That's why she's a superstar."
