Khloe Kardashian has hit back at critics who slammed her for sharing a Photoshopped gym selfie, more than two months after she posted it.

The reality star posted a picture of herself showing off her toned abs following a hard core workout on her Instagram account back in February, 2016 and fans were quick to spot a bend in the hinges of the door behind her, which suggested Khloe had altered the image.

While the 31-year-old was quick to admit she had Photoshopped the snap, she didn't fully explain her reasons until Monday.

"Whenever I post a picture of my legs on Instagram, everyone comments on how f**ked up my knees look," she wrote on her app. "It's because I've had reconstructive surgery, you a**holes! My right leg is an inch and a half thinner than my left because my muscles deteriorated and never recovered.

"It's funny because everyone made a big stink about this Instagram photo because I Photoshopped it. Yes, I did Photoshop it, but I was trying to make my thinner leg look bigger to match my other leg!!! All I want are big, thick thighs and I hate how skinny my legs are."

Khloe went on to explain she still bears the scars of her many surgeries following a car crash when she was just 16 - and 15 years on she has to wear a knee brace when she is working out.

"To this day, I remember the exact streets (Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon)," she continued. "I was speeding and the other car ran a stop sign. I was wearing my seatbelt but the strap was under my armpit. I was in a small Mercedes and it compacted in the wreck. My head and upper body went through the windshield and my legs were stuck under the steering wheel.
