Reality Queen Kim Kardashian West claims 'awful' snaps taken by the paparazzi during her recent trip to Mexico were 'Photoshopped' to be unflattering.

The 36-year-old mother of two admitted she wasn't in her 'best shape' and hadn't worked out for 12 weeks when the pictures were taken.

But Kim is convinced the candid images were 'sharpened' and 'Photoshopped' to make her look 'way worse' than she really did.

Kim, who regularly uses flattering filters to digitally alter the pictures she shares on social media, could be seen with cellulite on her famous derriere and thighs in the paparazzi pictures.

'I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them,' Kardashian said on The View on Tuesday.

'I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn't worked out in about 12 weeks, I'd had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show.

'But I was already not feeling like myself and when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like "Ok, I'm going to get it together" and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl.'

In April photos emerged of Kim enjoying some time off with sister Kourtney in Mexico, parading her massive bum in just a black thong and cropped T-shirt.

After being spurred into action seeing the pictures, Kim was spurred told The View hosts that she's been on her new fitness regime for three weeks now, which includes a new diet plan, working with a girl she met through social media.

'I definitely think that you have to do the work. I get up every morning between 5:30 and 6; workout before my kids get up. I’ve been working out for an hour and a half.

'I was eating less thinking like, "Okay. I’m just not gonna eat this," But I was eating absolutely no carbs or trying to and that’s really hard for me.'

With Kim's new fitness guru, she says she's learned to eat more of the right things, as she explained: 'She’s really helped me with my meal plan to definitely add healthy carbs, vegetables. I was just not eating properly.

'I see already, in just a few weeks, my body tightening up. I've literally just shrunk and come into place and I’m excited. We're doing these intense workouts and I love working out. That's a big stress reliever.'

Kim also opened up about how she's developed a thick skin living life in the spotlight.

'I have thick skin and this isn't for everyone. I can see why people get hurt and are bothered by it. I do break down at times,' she confessed.

'I’m just like it’s not okay for people to say these awful things. For people to have all this keyboard courage to say the craziest things about you is okay and it’s not okay.'

The reality star admitted one of the worst moments came when people doubted whether her Paris robbery ordeal in October actually took place.

She told the co-hosts: 'That was something that was why I was like, "Okay, I need to take a step back. I need to take a step back from social media, from opinions. I don't care, the truth will come out. I'm home with my babies. I'm safe."'

Kim also talked about her strained relationship with stepfather Caitlyn Jenner, revealing that she hasn't spoken to her in months.
