Kim Kardashian is facing accusations of photoshopping her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson, after uploading pictures of the pair enjoying a meal together.
Kardashian has been romantically linked with Davidson, a stand-up comedian best known for his time on Saturday Night Live, ever since separating from Kanye West last year.
Following a war of words online between Davidson and West, it is the rapper's ex-wife who is now in the firing line for allegedly altering her new partner's appearance.
In a series of pictures uploaded to Instagram, some fans are suggesting that Kardashian has edited Davidson's jaw and nose to look more sculpted.
An account by the name of @ProblematicFame, which seeks to expose how 'instagram can impact beauty standards', did a side by side comparison of Davidson on SNL vs the picture that Kardashian uploaded to Instragram.
The post, which was captioned "Instagram vs Reality" got plenty of traction online, sparking a debate over whether the image had been doctored with.
In response, a source told US outlet pagesix.com that no such photoshoppping or image editing software had been used on the pictures, which show the two of them eating out a restaurant.
“Pete’s nose and neck appearance were not altered in anyway,” the insider claims. “The image shown in the side-by-side shows his face at a different angle, and he is smiling larger so it cannot be an apples-to-apples comparison.”
Many fans online came to the defence of the 28-year-old comedian, who previously dated the likes of Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsdale.
“He honestly looks better in reality!!” wrote one enraged Twitter user, while another added 'reality looks better'.
Some fans, meanwhile, concluded that it was just different angles that gave Davidson an altered appearance.
if rumours of image editing turn out to be true, it will be the second instance of a Kardashian family member getting caught phototshopping in as many days.
On Tuesday, Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian admitted to photoshopping her daughter into pictures snapped at Disneyland.
What began life as a mere fan theory eventually forced a confession out of the 37-year-old, who responded on Twitter by saying: "Wellppp I f****d this one up."
