Kim Kardashian claimed that she was unable to attend little sister Kendall Jenner’s sweet sixteen over the weekend because she couldn’t find a babysitter for her baby daughter North West.
However, a new report in Us Weekly suggests that Kim Kardashian, whose famous figure has helped build her a multi-million dollar empire, is still too self conscious to reveal her post-pregnancy figure.
Sources close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West say the 32-year-old, who is already said to have lost 30 lbs, is still attempting to lose another 30 off her frame.
And until she reaches that goal, fans of buxom beauty will not be seeing Kim Kardashian anytime soon.
The new mother has reportedly refused to step out in public until she looks “hot”.
“She’s extremely self-conscious about her current body,” a source told Us Weekly.
“She said when she comes out and gets photographed for the first time, she wants to look hot, hot, hot.”
While Kim Kardashian has already shed an impressive 30 lbs from her post-pregnancy frame, it is said that her weight loss has now slowed down and she is now “obsessed” to get to the final stretch.
“The weight is not coming off as quickly. She plateaued. This is the hard part now,” another Kardashian source told Us Weekly.
“She’s always complaining about her size. She says she hates looking this way and won’t go out again until she is skinnier,” a pal of Kanye West added to the magazine.
In order to get camera ready, Kim Kardashian has reportedly enlisted the aid of a trainer who visits her at her mother Kris Jenner’s home five times a week.
She is also said to be on an extremely strict diet.
While she cooks “homemade fried chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese” for Kanye West, a chef is apparently cooking Kim Kardashian low-calorie dishes such as grilled lemon chicken.
One source told the magazine that Kim Kardashian believes it will be several more weeks before she reaches her goal weight of 115 lbs and it is only then when she will make her big reveal to the world.
“She thinks it will take her at least another month and a half to get to where she wants to be,” a source told the magazine.
“Only when she’s there will she start thinking about showing her body to the world.”
In the interim, one of her biggest supporters, rapper Kanye West, continues to try and boost her body confidence by heaping praise on the reality star.
“Kanye tells her she’s beautiful. He wants to boost her confidence and goes out of his way so she doesn’t have to ask. But it wears Kanye out to hear her being down on herself.’”
One thing that is keeping her mind off her post-pregnancy figure is her precious baby North West.
Kim Kardashian, who friends and family say has taken to motherhood like a duck to water, is relishing in her new role.
According to Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian is already having a ball dressing her little girl up in designer clothing.
“[North] already had an incredible wardrobe,” a Kardashian insider told the magazine.
“She wears Roberto Cavalli and also has such beautiful jewelry – rubies, pearls, diamonds, everything.”
