Chrissy Teigen just opened up about the leaked Khloe Kardashian bikini photo saga, admitting she brought it up with her therapist because of the impact it had on her own body confidence.

In a recent interview with Andy Cohen, as well as touching on how Kim Kardashian was doing following her divorce from Kanye West, Chrissy also spoke out about Khloe's recent Instagram debacle.

ICYMI, a photo of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in a bikini went viral after it was shared without her consent. Though Khloe looked happy, healthy and glowing in the pic, fans speculated that she didn't like the photo because it was unedited.

The 36-year-old has since spoken out to defend her decision to wipe the photo from the internet, explaining, "when someone takes a photo of you that isn’t flattering in bad lighting or doesn’t capture your body the way it is... you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared."

In a new interview, Chrissy was asked what she made of the saga. "Honestly, I went a million different ways," she said (via Mirror.) "I actually ended up talking about it in therapy, oddly enough, because of my own body insecurity issues and what celebrities have done to people in distorting their image of what a real human body looks like."

She continued, "I look at Khloe and of course I'm like, you're so beautiful, you're so strong. The change that she's made to her body she's so proud of and everybody's so proud of. And you want somebody to be like, f**k yes this is my body — in any light.

"At the same time, I'm like, my god, anyone's able to say and have any kind of portrayal of their body that they want people to see. If she didn't want that photo to be out, she didn't want that photo to be out. And that's fine too."

Chrissy added that she understood where Khloe was coming from asking for the photo to be removed, but it also made her "frustrated".
