Kim Kardashian gets a new hookup, but did she get a facelift too?

So I was going to write up this days-old story about how Kim Kardashian is probably boning soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, but as I was looking through these new(er) photos of Kim Kardashian, I have to ask again: did she do something to her face? It’s been looking crazy tight lately. It could just be Botox, because it doesn’t look like her forehead is moving at all – but as far as I know, Botox doesn’t give you cat eyes. Did Kim go under the knife after she and Reggie Bush split? I think she may have.

Anyway, Kim and Reggie are officially over and Kim is officially on the prowl again. Us Weekly reported a few days ago that Kim and Ronaldo hooked up in Spain. The hookup involved a lunch date, a public makeout session, and several hours “in private” at Ronaldo’s house, after which Kim was apparently asked to leave (chuckle). That seems to be the subtext: sex, and then “So, you should get going, I have a lot to do today.” Here’s more:


Newly single Kim Kardashian and hunky Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo recently hooked up in Madrid, Spain, a Kardashian pal confirms to

On Monday, Kardashian 29, had a romantic lunch with Real Madrid star Ronaldo, 25, at eatery La Dorado. An onlooker at the restaurant observed the pair “kissing” and being “very affectionate.”

Paparazzi shots show each leaving La Dorado separately. The pair then traveled in separate cars back to Ronaldo’s mansion, where the reality star stayed for several hours.

A Kardashian pal explains that Kardashian and Ronaldo recently met in L.A.; when the athlete heard that Kardashian was in his home city (she watched his team play at a Saturday night game), they decided to meet up.

So far, the hot new couple are “just having fun.” Kardashian is “taking her time,” the pal says. “They both travel a lot, so it’s easy for them to see each other.” Last June, Ronaldo signed a six-year, 80-million euro ($132 million) deal with Real Madrid — reportedly making him the world’s highest-paid soccer player.

Kardashian and New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush, 25, ended their on-and-off relationship of nearly three years last month. “Sometimes loving each other isn’t enough,” a source explained to Us Weekly. “They wanted different things.”

Ronaldo really is a big soccer star – he’s big enough that I’ve heard of him. A guy like that has his pick of all of the beautiful European models, actresses, et cetera. Why go for a C-list reality star from America, and one who always photographs looking so Botoxed and farty? No, this was just a hookup. If it happened at all.

By the way, Kim also posed for Harper’s Bazaar naked, and allegedly this photo has not been retouched at all (via HuffPo). I believe it for her face, but not so much for her body. Thoughts?


Here are some more photos of Kim looking very “tight” in the face:

    that first picture is super scary… and Ronaldo is too greasy for my taste

  2. NY says:

    I think its untouched, but a ton of makeup and body make up too.

  3. Malorie says:

    “A guy like that has his pick of all of the beautiful European models, actresses, et cetera.”

    Do you think European models, actresses, et cetera have NO TASTE, for the love of God?

    He is tacky and here everybody knows it.

    Malorie, an European girl.

  4. lucy2 says:

    Her face does look weird, like she did something to it.
    Hasn’t this guy already made the rounds of Hollywood C listers or am I thinking of someone else?

  5. lem says:

    i think the cat-eye look is just her spackled-on make-up…

  6. annie says:

    Kim is starting to look like Joan Rivers in the face. Too much plasic in her cheek/nose/mouth area and too tight in her eyes. She was so pretty, why did she have to mess it up?

  7. ogechi says:

    Pretty Kim. Keep rocking.

  8. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I love Kim *ducking*, but when we see her in print just about every single day, when would she have the time to recuperate from surgery? The bottom photo DOES look rather Joan Rivers-esque.

    She is beautiful, and I really hope she doesn’t go the plastic surgery route.

  9. Okay, IF the photo is touched up they did a great job, leaving in a lot of the real life that most photoshopers take out completely.
    As far as a face overhaul goes, either she did or the girls in her family age that way because suddenly she has her mother’s overly lifted eyes and face.
    Now, on to the hook-up, he’s alright but NOTHING near as cute as Reggie. Girl, keep looking…

  10. bellaluna says:

    Yeah, she’s already gone the plastic surgery route. No one has eyes that close to their hairline unless they have.

    And I’m calling BS on the “unretouched” photo of her naked, too. She’s not got a little rear/thighs, and we all know she’s got cellulite. So, did it just magically disappear for this photo? Or run and hide in shame? (If so, could the cellulite teach Kim that trick?)

  11. operaghost says:

    I don’t know what the heck she did, but she has been looking odd in the last few sets of pictures. Definitely something going on. Fat injections into her cheeks? Botox? Something. And it’s not a good look. Why would anyone as beautiful as she is (was!) do something to mess up the face???? I’m no KK fan by any means, but a person would have to flat out lie to say her face wasn’t very pretty. Now, though, it’s looking a bit weaselly/ferretish.

  12. GatsbyGal says:

    Oh poor Kim…she didn’t need to do that. Was she feeling ugly because that football guy broke up with her? She’s looking a mess now.

  13. Marjalane says:

    I despair for a society where this skank is a celebrity. What exactly does she offer? She makes good sex tapes? Seriously. Does she sing? Act? Write? Have interesting viewpoints on life? No. She’s a skank that puts her make up on with a shovel.

  14. The Judge says:

    She’s the one that that guy peed on in the tape right? Why are we talking about her?

  15. snapdragon says:

    her eyes look tight and her nose looks thinner, although maybe that’s just tape and makeup. i do think her body is amazing, though. i would love to have her curves.

  16. Pooky says:

    “Why go for a C-list reality star from America?”

    Erm… THAT ass!

  17. KsGirl says:

    Yep, I’m with operaghost – that’s some injections in the cheeks + Botox. Botox CAN give a sort of mini-facelift affect on people young enough to not need major work (not saying she needed work, she didnt). But she’s got that chipmunky look here. Sad.

  18. SBL says:

    Wow, it’s amazing how each gossip site has those people they hate who they just can’t, for the life of them, ever say anything nice about. I’m not going to defend Kim in regards to her intelligence, etc, but she’s a pretty girl. And plastic surgery? Really? Do you know how much bruising and swelling comes with plastic surgery? No one has that and then gets their picture taken the next day – or even the next week. I’ll agree she uses quite a bit of makeup, and she could be using botox, but at the end of the day catch someone at the wrong moment or the wrong angle – and they’re going to look weird. That first picture isn’t a sign of plastic surgery – it’s just a weird picture.

  19. Maritza says:

    I don’t think she has done anything, it’s all that makeup she has on that makes her look different. She looks so much like her mother. Ronaldo and Kim would be perfect for each other, they are both into fashion and fame.

  20. Jag says:

    I think she got a mid-face lift, which is unfortunate. As much as I don’t care for her, she was beautiful. Now she looks too tight, as you said.

  21. Novaraen says:

    This girl is ALL plastic. Her butt and boobs, as well as her face.

    All fake.

  22. amanda says:

    Her cheekbones are enormous, and if you look at older pics of her, her cheekbones have always been lovely, but never this pronounced. I think she is getting injectable fillers in her cheekbone area to enhance it, which is a common procedure. She should lay off all the makeup though! She is a really pretty girl and doesn’t need the “Mac Face” effect. It ages her, for sure.

  23. Wisteria says:

    I noticed he face looked weird in pics lately too. Sort of alien-like with the giant cat eyes and pointed chin.

  24. Huma says:

    They used TRUCKLOADS of foundation on her body. TRUCKLOADS YOU GUYS.

    Also, yes, cat eyes. Famewhoring isn’t attractive, Kim. Remember that. Whoops, too late.

  25. Ana says:

    I saw a picture of her before her butt job the other day, and I don’t understand why she got it. Her butt makes her look fat and she’s actually pretty skinny. The boobs don’t help either.

  26. Lady Nightshade says:

    I don’t understand the point of these supposedly not photoshopped pictures. They act like it’s them saying it’s ok to have flaws, but they pictures they use are almost perfect so they aren’t actually exposing any flaws. Is it supposed to make real women feel better about themselves or worse?

  27. Vajayjay says:

    OF COURSE she’s had plastic surgery ladies, her looks are her business! You think anyone would be talking about her if she wasn’t attractive in the least bit? And she may be a famewhore, but do you seriously think that she gets a photo taken everyday? She hides out to recover from her plastic surgery just as much as the other stars do.

  28. Crash2GO2 says:

    Where is his chin?

  29. mel says:

    I used to think she was naturally beautiful but now she looks fake and unreal. She needs to layoff the surgery or she will regret it. What a mess.

  30. Macheath says:

    The more I stare at that first picture, the more my skin itches *shiver*. She’s wearing about six inches of make up on that super tight spotty face! Urgh, I feel so gross. I can’t wear make-up because of sensitive skin but I think it looks lovely on girls when it’s done in moderation and looks natural. Kim makes me feel like I’ve got a thousand ants crawling all over my face. It’s the same reaction I get when I see something bobbly or pocky. Enough caked on make-up Kim! Someone needs to tell her she looks awful. *itch itch*

  31. krissy_kitty says:

    STOOOOOPPPPP!!!! WTF has this girl done to her FACE???! If ever there was anyone who didn’t need plastic surgery it was her… maybe a tweak or two here or there, but, DAMN!!! It is too obvious that she is having stuff done… what a shame, so young.. save that crap for when you are in your 60′s… ugh…

  32. Cinderella says:

    She should lay off the botox. Her 29 will fast forward to 39 if she’s not careful.

    Did I correctly read that Ronaldo’s contract is worth $132 mil??? Wow.

    He better be using protection, that’s all I can say.

  33. Kim says:

    EWWWW! SHe had a lower face lift and eye & brow lift and cheek implants at some point. She is wayyyy to young to have had all this done. She looked like a tranny before and now has that look all young girls who get to much surgery (Heidi) have of a cross dressing male!

  34. Kim says:

    She looks awful. That cheap, way to tight dress, hooker ahir and makeup. No amount of suregry will make this one attractive.

  35. Kim says:

    He is greasy and didnt Paris Hilton already bed him?

  36. Jules says:

    Are those eyelashes or spiders?? I think Kim K WAS a true natural beauty. But now she’s a distorted kind of beautiful. Whatever she did to her face, which is obviously something, I don’t like it. Where the corners of her mouth go into her cheeks—it looks suuuuuper tight. So they either pulled her face back, or gave her enormous cheek implants. I can’t believe such beautiful girls have such bad self esteem that they need face work at 29 yrs old in a quest to obtain beauty which they already had. Leave your body alone and work on your mind.

    Oh, and she’s whittled away at her nose too. Maybe a couple of times.

  37. Shona says:

    Kim is beautiful no question but I don’t think she had surgery. I think it is the way she applied her make up. Now I do think she is using botox. I think she would be even more pretty if she didn’t wear so much make up.

  38. Jess says:

    In the photo where she is waving… she is making crazy-Britney-face right there!

  39. alma says:

    she looks like nicole schwhatevers from the pussy cat dolls. She looks scary. When people get work so young I think it just ends up making them look older. Seriously she looks 35 here!

  40. oxa says:

    She reminds me of Madame Tussards every time I see her face.

  41. gg says:

    This chick is going to turn into crazy old whopper-jawed hagface Jackie Stallone face in about ten years if she keeps it up with the tweaks.

  42. kooky says:

    She had cheek implants done and lots of botox, something with the eyes too.
    the cheek implants seems to be the new fad with celebs these days. Its easily spotted and rarely looks natural. Not sure why she did it at her age. she was pretty before but now she just looks like she had plastic surgery.
    Its a shame these young celebs feel the need to do this, most women do cheek implants to look younger but when they’re already young they turn out looking like aliens.

  43. Jeri says:

    Looks like she’s had Botox & Injections, that can sometimes affect the eye area.

  44. Simi says:

    Looks like KK’s starting on that slippery ‘Joan Rivers’ slope!

    Being dumped obviously does crazy things to some folks.

  45. Camille says:

    I have thought for ages that she has had some work done, I think she has been to her monthers Dr, as her mother has that same weird cat-like, tight face. Not attractive at all. And she wears waaaaaay too much makeup.

  46. Tru says:

    Two greaseballs! Yuuuuck!!!
    her face is very uh, SEVERE and she is talentless.

    The media acts like she won an oscar or something.

    yeah, I heard, her and her sisters are writing a relationship book. WHAT a joke!

  47. Anj says:

    christiano ronaldo looks like perverted boy.

  48. Sumodo1 says:

    She’s well on her way to being another Jocelyn Wildenstein.

  49. mojoman says:

    Greasy Ronaldo and gunked-up Kim bumping uglies*shiver* I feel bad for the housekeeper who has to wash the bedsheets, that gunk wont come off easy!

  50. Caitlan says:

    That’s the problem. She has too many ÿes”people around her telling her she looks great and to keep doing what she’s doing. And the way her family is, (mom and step dad with all the obvious plastic surgery the’ve had), I’m sure she just thinks it’s natural to tweak her face. It’s too bad because she was prettier before. Plastic surgery is hit and miss. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t.

  51. Ana says:

    I think it’s her nose.

  52. mags says:

    ok i never hated her but seriously, i would love to have just one throw down with CR..cause he just looks like he’d be good….lol

  53. isabelle says:

    Botox gave Kylie Minogue cat eyes.

  54. Francesca says:

    Now she looks like her mom! Not good when you are only 20 something…

    Lots of pressure and fear = nip/tuck.

  55. sara says:

    i can’t tell i like kim and her show

  56. Mo says:

    She DEFINITELY had the tip of her nose refined and it looks terrible. Took away from her Armenian look and now she looks like a white girl. (Not that anything is wrong with white girls), I’m just saying! She looked wayyyyy better before!
