Kim Kardashian has been posting sultry photos on social media, allegedly as a coping mechanism.

In its July 5 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Kardashian’s siblings are encouraging her to have casual flings instead of exposing her body for her followers to see.

However, a source claimed that Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is not ready for love or anything casual. After all, her ex-husband, Kanye West scarred her throughout their marriage.

“Kim’s friends and sisters think it would do her a world of good to just arrange a booty call or two, but she’s nervous about it. Truth is, she’s scarred by how dreadful things were with Kanye. Kim may strut around like this uber-confident glamour puss, but that’s a façade. Her self-esteem has taken a major knock,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that West and Kardashian didn’t share any intimate moments for two years. And this is one of the reasons why the reality TV star filed for divorce from the rapper.

“Kim and Kanye got stuck in this rut where intimacy was awkward. Their intimacy died a long time ago and that was tough for Kim to take since she’s a very sexual person,” the source said.

According to the source, Kardashian struggled to get in bed with West because she hated his appearance. After all, the mom of four allegedly thinks that the rapper is fat.

Kardashian is also very particular with her own appearance. So, she refused to be photographed with someone like West in public.

With this, the insider claimed that Kardashian and West have already gotten over each other. But there’s no denying that the rapper’s harsh words are still ringing in Kardashian’s ears.

And by the looks of it, it will take the reality TV star a long time to recover from what she experienced while she was with West.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. Kardashian isn’t showing off her body to cope up with her insecurities.

And no one knows the real score when it comes to Kardashian and West’s private moments. So, it’s obvious that the tabloid is just making up stories about the A-listers.

Last week, Kardashian revealed that she and West are on good terms. After all, they act as co-parents to their four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
