Kim Kardashian has claimed that she’s suffering from ‘body dysmorphia’ after being body shamed.
Despite making a fortune from having flaunted her famous assets, Kim claims that she struggles with accepting her body.
After unfiltered photos emerged of the star on a holiday earlier this year, Kim was suffering from a confidence blow.
“You take pictures and people just body shame you,” the mother-of-two told the camera, adding: “It’s like literally giving me body dysmorphia.”
Kim, who is famous for trying to break the internet with a naked shoot for Paper magazine, said that while people assume that she’s comfortable with her body, the truth is that she’s actually ‘so insecure’.
During the most recent episode of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim admits to still suffering from anxiety after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last year and is considering increasing the number of people on her security team to help her get a better night’s sleep.
“I just have anxiety, are you sure it’s safe here? Ever since Paris I just go through this worst case scenario thing in my head.
“I think for my own piece of mind I’m going to fly out like four more security – just to like stay outside my room when I’m sleeping, I know it sounds crazy but I just can’t sleep at night,” she explained.
And the 36-year-old television personality admits her anxiety has stopped her even wanting to go out for dinner with her husband, Kanye West.
Speaking on the family’s E! reality show, she added: “I have such anxiety just going places. I just don’t want to be in the mix like I used to… Kanye’s like, ‘Let’s go out to dinner’ and I’m like, ‘I can’t, I can’t enjoy myself’.
“I think I have to get out of my shell but I don’t want to, I like living this more chill life. I’ve become socially awkward for sure … I am so afraid of everything, anxiety, pressure.”
And Kim had previously blamed her social media activity for causing the Paris robbery as she believes it gave the burglars the information that she was home alone.
“What I think happened now, after like thinking about it so much, is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip. I was Snapchatting that I was home and that everyone was going out,” she said.
“So I think they knew [bodyguard Pascal Duvier] was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself. They had to have known we were leaving that I was there by myself. They had to have known we were leaving that day.
“They had this window of opportunity and just went for it.”
Tweeting after the show, Kim wrote: “It was tough rewatching having panic attach & having anxiety about traveling, but I’m so proud to also show u guys that I’m ok now.”
