Kim Kardashian’s nude picture spread in “Paper” magazine attempted to break the internet yesterday, but naturally, we’ve learned that her now infamous butt shots for the magazine were Photoshopped. In case you’ve missed it, the reality star not only bared her butt for the world to see, but she also showed off full frontal nudity in the pages of the publication.

Kardashian’s nude shots are a precursor to her impending second pregnancy, sources have told TMZ. Reportedly, she wanted to show off her entire body to anyone who would look prior to getting pregnant by her husband Kanye West. As far as the rapper is concerned, he isn’t exactly jealous of her love for showing off her body to complete strangers. In fact, he actually loves her public displays of nudity. Strange, no?

Kim Kardashian’s body was obviously Photoshopped for the cover and inside pictures, so says the magazine’s editorial director, Mickey “Mr. Mickey” Boardman. He revealed, “Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level. 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.”

Kardashian worked with photographer Jean-Paul Goode for the oiled up shots and the director said that it wasn’t originally in the plans for Kardashian to go completely naked for the now infamous photos. He said, “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 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, magic was happening.”

He added of the photographer, “He was like a kid in a candy store by the time we got rolling. He was so happy and so excited with the pictures.”

Kim Kardashian’s nude pictures were actually her idea, color us all shocked!
