Explaining that cortisone shots were advised to combat a dent in her skin caused by said meds, Kim confessed, “I went to go get a cortisone shot in my butt. I lived right behind Kitson. One of my neighbors was a dermatologist at Cedars. I go in there and he’s like, ‘There’s a one in a billion chance that you will get a huge indent in your butt.’ Of course I get a huge indent on my butt.”

“There is a picture of me in Miami wearing an electric blue dress, and another picture of me walking down Robertson. You see the indent. And I think that’s when the rumors started.” Well there you go, then. MYSTERY SOLVED. We can all sleep easy tonight.
