Are The Kardashians Paying Paparazzi to Photoshop Their Pics?

There's a new and interesting theory floating around some corners of the Internet that the Kardashian and Jenner sisters are paying the paparazzi to photoshop their photos before releasing them to the public.

It's not like they are strangers to photoshop controversies. Khloe has had to address it numerous times on her Instagram, from making herself appear slimmer to posting photos where she seemingly had two thumbs:

You are so much more powerful than you know! Keep going????

Or there was that time that Kim released this photo with the cars distorted in the background:

Nice photoshop @KimKardashian

But this new theory that the sisters are actually paying the paps to photoshop their photos eliminates the problem of original pictures as evidence.

And one Instagram account appears to have proof:

Some photos are Photoshopped by the paparazzi companies, the celebrities pay for that. That's why when a FAN takes a picture of some of these women, they look very different. In this example you can see the difference in Kim's hips and the size of her waist. And in the second picture you can see how without any retouching, Kim's butt also looks different. . Algunas fotos son retocadas con Photoshop por las compañías de paparazzis, las celebridades pagan por eso. Es por eso que cuando un FAN le toma una foto a alguna de ellas, lucen muy diferentes. En este ejemplo puedes ver la diferencia en las chaparreras de Kim y el tamaño de su cintura. En la segunda foto se puede ver como el trasero de Kim luce realmente sin ningún retoque. . . @kimkardashian #kimkardashian #kanyewest #kyliejenner #kendalljenner #kourtneykardashian #kholekardashian #kardashians #kardashian #jenner #fake #photoshopfail #photoshop #badliar #liar #sosad #sobad #falsa #mentirosa #insecurities #instagram #couplegoals

The account has been calling out photoshopping on celebrities and influencers since last year, with a large focus on the Kardashian/Jenners since January.

While the editing seems relatively minimal, the fact that the sisters even feel the need to have this done to their photos speaks to their much larger problem of selling perfection that even they can't seem to attain.
