Did she or didn't she? Kim Kardashian and the great butt implants debate

Well, that's one way to ensure the rumour mill keeps churning about your figure.
Reality star Kim Kardashian was pictured wearing a figure-hugging outfit amid rumours she has been using bum injections.
The mum-of-one wore a white skirt that clung to her famous curves and a low-cut sheer black top as she strolled around New York.
One of the world’s most talked about celebrities, she is often at the centre of speculation when it comes to her looks and became so enraged by the bum implants rumour that she underwent an x-ray in 2011 to prove she's all natural.
However, new reports have surfaced suggesting she has had fat from her stomach and thighs injected into her bottom.
‘‘Kim hasn't had implants. She's had the fat from her tummy and thighs taken out by lipo, then injected into her bottom. She also wears padded knickers sometimes,’’ an insider told Closer magazine.
Kim gained 3.5 stone during her pregnancy with daughter North 'Nori' West and lost the majority of the weight through the Atkins diet in the nine months after she gave birth.
The graphic process of injecting fat from the body into the bum is called buttock augmentation with fat grafting.
The procedure is said to have a more natural look and feel compared to silicon implants.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star publicly stated in the past that she hasn't had ‘‘butt implants.’’
But she's still aware of her assets and is believed to have taken out an insurance policy on her bum for a massive $21 million.
It’s unlikely her rapper fiancé Kanye West is happy with her turning to cosmetic surgery - his mother Donda died 24 hours after going under the knife in 2007 and he placed a firm 'no surgery' rule with his other half.
'Kimye' are set to wed in Paris this May and the plans are becoming more and more outlandish as the date nears.
This will be Kanye’s first marriage, and the third for Kim, who was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000-2003 and basketball player Kris Humphries, which ended after only 72 days in October 2011.
