Speculation ramped up after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared a snap of herself on Instagram, cradling her stomach in a figure hugging outfit.
Her 69.4million followers went into meltdown over the upload – with many thinking they could see the 33 year old sporting a ‘baby bump’.
However, Kim Kardashian’s sister has now lashed out at commenters, explaining the ‘bump’ was simply the design of her outfit.
“This is a peplum shirt,” she commented back to fans. “It flares out at the bottom. It’s just the way the shirt is designed.
“In some of the next pictures coming up from the SAME shoot, I’m in a crop top. Showing a lot of skin…”
This is the first time Khloe has alluded to rumours she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
