"When I was about five, my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide and seek, and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate. After a while, when my sister didn’t find me, I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped, and the pole went into my leg.

Kylie also took time to embrace the flaw in an Instagram picture in December 2015 that shows a close-up of the mark which runs from the back of her knee up to her thigh. She captioned her picture: "I love my scar."
