Travis Scott And Kylie Jenner Nude GQ Photo Shows Off Jenner's Leg Scar — Here's How She Got It

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott appeared on the August 2018 GQ magazine cover. It's the first magazine cover they've done together as a couple. But their steamy cover shoot (we've basically seen Jenner nude on Instagram before, and this shot comes pretty close, too) isn't the only thing catching everyone's attention.

The photos also showed off Jenner's leg scar. Jenner has a large white scar running down her thigh, which is in full view on the magazine cover. Although this isn't the first time Jenner's scar has been visible, it often leaves fans wondering, how did Jenner get that leg scar? 

Jenner has had the scar since she was a child, but didn't reveal the story behind it until 2011 during a Q&A with fans.

Jenner explained that she got the scar during a childhood game of hide and seek with her sister, Kendall. “When I was about five, my sister and I were playing hide-and-seek, and I hide 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. I tried pulling away to get the pole out, but it just tore through my whole leg,” she explained. 

While Jenner's proven to struggle with insecurities in the past (like her struggle with small lips, which inspired her to get those famous lip injections), her leg scar is actually something she's proud of.
