Kim Kardashian claps back at comments about her psoriasis
Kim Kardashian is known for dividing opinion with unique aplomb. Whether she's posting risqué images on Instagram, or housing her new $60 fragrance in a bottle made from a mould of her nude torso (by and by "breaking the internet"), people are always going to have something to say.
Case in point: the beauty mogul was forced to issue a response to publications commenting on her psoriasis.
The 38-year-old has been increasingly outspoken about having the skin condition, which can cause red, flaky patches of skin. While it usually occurs on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, it can be found anywhere on the body.
And after the Daily Mail shared close-ups of her face and the visible bumps on it, she refused to be silenced.
In the tweet, which was posted on Tuesday, the publication said that Kim was having a "bad skin day".
"It's no wonder the 38-year-old KKW Beauty CEO occasionally suffers a spot of bother with all the foundation and concealer she wears regularly," they continued.
"It’s psoriasis all over my face," the mother-of-three replied, less than 10 minutes after the tweet was published. She added a crying emoji.
Kim has been open about her skin condition as far back as 2011 on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. While she said that most of the symptoms were on her legs, she tweeted about it spreading to her face in 2017.
In other news, Kim and Kanye are reportedly expecting a fourth child via surrogate. The baby will join 11-month-old Chicago - who was also born via surrogate - three-year-old Saint, and five-year-old North.
While Kim has repeatedly spoken about how much she loves being a mother, back in August, a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told the publication that the reality star and her rapper husband weren't "in a huge rush" to have a fourth child.
"They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure," claimed the insider, before pointing out "Chicago is still little, and they have time."
In the past, Kim has said that while she's open to having a fourth child, it's a decision that she and Kanye will make privately, and at the right time. "My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way," she said, before stating that a fourth baby would definitely be the last. "I don't think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it's important that in all couples, the mum gives the husband as much attention as the kids."
This decision is undoubtedly influenced by the complications the 37-year-old experienced while pregnant with her first two children.
After the birth of North and Saint, Kim suffered from pre-eclampsia and placenta acrceta, which meant that she was unable to carry her third child. As she said during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, "I always knew surrogacy was an option, now it's my reality".
