Observers are wondering (once again!) if Kim Kardashian has had a few ribs removed. The beauty mogul’s waist has never been trimmer, and Monday night, she wore a stunning creation by Thierry Mugler (his first frock in two decades) that accentuated her nipped-in midsection.

“So how many ribs do we think Kim k has had removed?” one user wrote.

“It’s insulting to our intelligence to pretend this is from a plant based diet and not from getting actual ribs removed,” wrote another, in response to an Us Weekly headline about the star’s pre-gala meal plan.

“To make things clear,” her trainer Melissa Alcantara wrote in an Instagram story, “1. This dress is corseted BUT 2. Kim trains her a– off 6 days a f–king week, she wakes up early AF and is dedicated.”

In addition to working out, Kardashian has previously said she wears corsets to “train” her waist and hips.


On a more serious note, TMZ is reporting that Kardashian has worked with her lawyer, Brittany K. Barnett, in partnership with lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective, to free 17 low-level drug offenders from prison over the past three months.

Kardashian is reportedly helping to plan the campaign, but is also footing the bill. This of course comes on the heels of her meeting with President Donald Trump, which led to the freeing of Alice Marie Johnson, Jeffrey Stringer and Cyntoia Brown. Now others have joined them.

Her efforts, and her plan to become a lawyer, will be documented in a new Oxygen documentary titled Kim Kardashian: The Justice Project.
