The Story Behind Kylie Jenner's Leg Scar Might Make You Flinch — You've Been Warned
People across the internet are talking about Kylie Jenner again. Only this time, it's because she and Travis Scott posed for the cover of GQ's August issue. Although she looks glamorous on the cover, the visible scar on her leg is hard to miss. Because of the way Jenner is posing, and since she's only wearing a bodysuit, the mark is more prominent, and people are openly discussing how much they appreciate that she left the scar unretouched, particularly at a time when that's so rare.
She revealed the cause of her scar during a fan Q&A in 2011. "When I was about five, my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide and seek, and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate," she said. "After a while when my sister didn't find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It's smaller now though because I grew!"
Over the years, Jenner has shared how proud she is of her scar. In 2015, she shared a picture of her leg on Instagram with the caption "I love my scar." Keep reading to see Kylie's thoughtful post and her first magazine cover with Travis.
