Kim Kardashian has defended cropping her daughter North West out of a selfie she posted online.
The 34-year-old reality TV star came under fire on social media after she posted a picture of herself pouting to camera while holding 17-month-old North in her arms, with the side of her head just visible in the edge of the photograph.
Kim took to Twitter to defend herself, saying she had cropped North out for her own good as she was not looking her best.
She wrote: "Wait is this really news that I posted a selfie & cropped my daughter out? LOL.
"Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!"
Kim also posted several pictures of North on the same day, when she and a group of friends took their kids to see Disney On Ice.
