Kim Kardashian has scotched an Internet rumour that she has six toes on one foot.
In an Instagram post with a video of her left foot in a flip-flop, the lingerie model and reality TV star told her 188 million followers: "Everyone thinks that I have six toes, and it's really wild."
"But it's this part of my foot, that when I wear a shoe just like this it smashes down right here and in a picture," she explained. "I don't know why, it looks like a sixth toe."
Kardashian helpfully counts her toes for her admirers before pointing out the bulge outside the little toe that looks vaguely like a vestigial digit.

The rumour began circulating on social media last year after she posted promotional pics for a new perfume on her Instagram account. Fans thought they had been badly photoshopped to edit out a sixth toe on one foot.
"I hope that answered my sixth toe question," Kardashian said. "Because I only have five toes on each foot."
