This Is How Kylie Jenner Got That Distinctive Scar On Her Left Leg
Fans have been praising the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star for her GQ photoshoot.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been praised by fans for refusing to cover the large scar on her left leg – even positioning herself so the four-inch mark was pretty central to the final shot.
While a bunch of people have been giving her a round of applause online, many had questions about where the scar actually originated from. And we now have some answers to share with the world.
Back in 2011, a then fourteen-year-old Kylie opened up about the mark during a fan Q&A, revealing: “When I was about five, my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide and seek, and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate.
"After a while, when my sister didn’t find me, I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped, and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out, but it just tore through my whole leg.”
Since then, Kylie has proudly displayed her scar on Instagram, posting an image of it in 2016 alongside the comment: “I love my scar.” And in response to her GQ shot, fans are fully behind her decision to show it off loud and proud.
“Props to @KylieJenner for not asking GQ to edit her scar out of her photo!” one person said, as another added: “I was sooo happy until I realized that Kylie Jenner’s scar on her left knee is probably richer than I’ll ever be.”
The truth hurts.
