Kim Kardashian is recovering from a painful injury to the middle finger on her left hand, as she showed in a preview for the July 18 episode of The Kardashians.

In the clip, the Skims founder, 43, has a splint covering her middle finger as she visits a doctor’s office for a checkup. Her ring finger also appears to show a mark or injury at its tip.

Kardashian removes the splint to show what looks like a bloody stump at the tip of her finger. “Oh, it looks great,” the doctor says.

“You think that looks great?” the American Horror Story actress asks visibly shocked.

“The, like, tip broke off,” Kardashian explains in her confessional as an X-ray flashes on the screen. “It was, like, more painful than childbirth."

Although no clues were given about just how Kardashian injured herself, she did appear in public earlier this year with two fingers on her left hand bandaged.

And in a March Instagram reel where she showed off the contents of her purse, Kardashian — with her fingers wrapped — said she carried bandages because, “I hurt myself, guys.”

The reality star then joked that the thick wraps around her fingers are “very stylish” and “I’ve been loving this look lately,” pretending to apply under-eye cream and blush with her bandaged fingers.
