'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' 2015: Khloe Kardashian Reveals Secret For Slim Waist On Instagram, Faces Lawsuit Over Beau James Harden's Birthday Celebration

"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" 2015 - Khloe Kardashian was cited for her new image and stunning figure post-divorce from former NBA star Lamar Odom and she has consistently posted on her social media account that she frequented the gym. This time, in a recent Instagram post, Khloe Kardashian revealed her secret to achieving her slim waist and it's not because of her workouts.

The 31-year-old Complex magazine cover girl posted a selfie in front of a large mirror while down on her knees with a contraption on her waist, which made it really itsy bitsy tiny. She captioned the snap: I'm obsessed with the gym but a little extra help never hurt nobody@waistgangsociety and @premadonna87 and keep my waist snatched and posture perfetc," and further added, "Once you try it, you will become obsessed!! Head over to the ONLY place to get your waist trainer!!!"

Wow, isn't that amazing? The "Keeping Up With The Kardashian" star also stated that wearing the waist trimmer "never hurt nobody."

But, a lot of experts brushed off the claim that using a waist trainer will forever re-shape the waist. Some have even suggested that it can cause a lasting injury. A clinical professor of Ob-Gyne at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, told the magazine Women's Health, "Medically, it doesn't make sense that cinching your waist tightly will make it permanently smaller. It's also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and theoretically could cause rib damage."

Daily Mail reported that even Dr. Paul Nassif of E! Channel's TV show "Botched" has concerns about the waist trimmer's effect on the lower intestines with it "pushing the contents into the pelvic region." "Basically, there is potential for internal organ compression causing kidney, gastrointestinal and lung issues," added the charismatic doctor.

In other news, Khloe Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner may face a lawsuit filed by a dozen of homeowners from Marina del Rey — some celebrities included for the ruckus they caused last Wednesday. The residents were greeted by the rambling sounds of a huge fireworks show as part of Khloe's new beau James Harden's birthday celebration.

TMZ revealed that each of the residents who filed the charges demanded $7,500 for damages for the trouble the fireworks display has caused them and the emotional distress that they felt.
