Kylie Jenner and her partner Travis Scott covered the August 2018 issue of GQ and posed for a series of sexy and badass photos. In the photos, Kylie straddles her boyfriend and proudly highlights the large scar on her leg. In a fun video to accompany the interview, Kylie challenged Travis to a game called “The Kylie Quiz,” and one of the questions was, “What’s the biggest scar on my body?” Travis answered correctly, but many at home wondered how Kylie got the massive scar on her thigh in the first place.
The reality star is not shy about the blemish and often highlights it on Instagram, but in 2011 she revealed in a fan Q&A how it came to be.
“When I was about 5 my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide and seek and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate,” Kylie explained (via Entertainment Tonight). “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!”
Like everything, the scar is now a proud part of her life story. Check out the video below to learn more about the harrowing story…
