She showed off her miniscule waist in Fergie’s new M.I.LF.$ music video released last week, quickly overshadowing her co-stars, including models Chrissy Teigen, Alessandra Ambrosio, and singer Ciara.

But while all eyes were on Kim’s famous curves, the mum-of-two just hours later she was caught up in controversy when she was accused of digitally enhancing her body.

Despite saying her new curves were down to her love of waist-training corsets, friends say Kim, 35, has been increasingly secure about her body since giving birth to son Saint in December.

The star has kept her Twitter followers up to date with her 4st weight loss so far, but is said to be devastated that she’s not a size zero (UK size 4) yet.

A source says: “Kim was desperate to go to any length to outshine the others in the video. But friends fear she’s lost all perspective of her natural body because she's so desperate to be desired and reclaim the body that made her a star.

"They’re worried about the state of her mind, and that the pressures she’s putting on herself could destroy her confidence but she’s told them she’ll achieve her dream body in whatever way possible.

“She’s humiliated that people are comparing and scrutinising her body in the video and to be honest, she somewhat regrets taking part."
