KHLOE Kardashian’s unedited bikini snap has circulated the internet after its accidental release by a member of her team this weekend.
But as many praised the natural-looking picture as “beautiful,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been rushing to scrub it from the web.
As Khloe, 36, took an Easter vacation at her mom Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home, the family snap was said to have been shared by an assistant “without permission.”
The photograph sees the reality star beaming a smile as she stands in front of the pool, seemingly makeup free and in a tiny leopard print string bikini.
Unlike her other finessed social media posts, the natural snap doesn’t see her striking a pose, but instead standing neutrally with her hair pulled back from her face.
But it’s not the only photo out there that shows the “real” Khloe, as recent footage from the show and paparazzi pictures also see her looking more natural .
On camera during Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe normally looks more relaxed and unposed, despite often wearing full faces of makeup.
Recent episodes have seen the star relaxing in oversized clothes and beanie hats, showing her plump cheeks and lips off without photo shop.
But despite fans always encouraging the star, they have still drawn up stark comparisons by her natural look now and that of the past.
“And we wonder why Instagram makes everyone so insecure,” one Twitter user wrote, alongside an old snap of Khloe on KUWTK.
Many flooded Twitter with snaps of the star in her younger years, which show her wider nose, slimmed lips and rounded face.
“It’s hard to believe that’s her, so much has changed,” one fan wrote underneath a picture of Khloe in her 20s, with natural brunette hair and minimal makeup.
They compared the snaps to recent images of Khloe in recent commercial with her young daughter True, 2.
One person wrote: “Who the hell is that?”
Another called her “plastic” and asked “what happened to her nose?”
The series of snaps and videos for the Nurtec campaign saw Khloe looking more airbrushed, with bigger lips, a smaller nose bridge and wide eyes.
It shows great similarities to Khloe’s most recent social media posts, that also see her with flawlessly matte skin and a cinched waistline.
One picture sees the reality star clutching a water bottle, resembling a Barbie doll with her perfected pout, bright eyes and brushed brows.
“Stop with the unrealistic beauty standards we know are fake,” one disgruntled woman wrote of the post. “We’re sick of seeing it. No one looks like this.”
Just the tip of the iceberg, the new bikini photo, intended for family eyes only, was taken by her maternal grandmother, Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Shannon.
While many handles reposted the image with good intention, praising it as “beautiful” and thanking Khloe for showing off her natural side, users have reported receiving “legal threats” to take it down.
Tracy Romulus, chief marketing officer for KKW Brands, said in a statement: “The color edited photo was taken of Khloe during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant.
“Khloé looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down.”
Another insider claimed the photo was taken while the mother of one was in the middle of a conversation over the weekend, and “features some edits.”
It comes days after Khloe posed in a sultry purple bikini for a set of swimwear photos of her own, looking much more finessed and made up.
The Kardashian sister posed with her hair down, opting for false lashes and lipstick, and turning her body to cinch in her waist.
She also showed off her frame in a new nude string bikini before covering up her torso with an oversized shirt.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been sharing a ton of bikini shots lately as she claps back at the trolls who continuously point out how different her face looks compared to her younger days.
In fact, she told her fans to “start ignoring people who threaten your joy.”
She added: “Literally ignore them. Say nothing. Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.”
She was then called her out for using photoshop in some Instagram snaps, including one “unrecognizable” photo where fans noticed half of her necklace was missing.
“Who is that? Where is Khloe,” one alarmed fan questioned while another said: “I didn’t even know who this was.”
Fans have been similarly riled up against the removal of the new bikini picture, calling it “pathetic” the star is threatening legal action.
“The unedited bikini pic of Khloe Kardashian is in no way ‘bad’ but it’s a stark reminder that social media is a complete lie,” one woman wrote.
“There’s a whole team surrounding that family that are completely in control of their social media’s & editing to an incredibly high standard, it’s sad.”

Another agreed: “The Kardashian klan is claiming it’s doctored and threatening people with legal action for sharing it, pathetic.”
“The truth of it is if Khloe uploaded more pics like this I’d be a much bigger fan,” a third wrote.
“Girl you look real! Please can celebrities stop sensationalising facetune and photoshop just be your damn self.”
