Kim Kardashian shocked the world when she posted a rather racy pic of herself posing in a skimpy white swimsuit this week, but despite many criticising the star for showing off her pert butt to all, sources have said that the star and her beau Kanye West "couldn't care less" about the backlash.
Kim has been working hard to lose those unwanted pregnancy pounds and she obviously wanted to show off the results of her efforts, with the reality babe taking to Instagram to share the raunchy selfie.
However, despite many taking to the social networking world to blast the star, she still has the support of Kanye, sources tell Hollywoodlife.
“They have been through so much worse and the pic is something they both love,” the source says. “Kanye can’t get enough of it and Kim is loving showing off her new post-baby body. People are going to talk regardless of what they do, so they don’t mind the backlash as they know it will go away by next week.”

Reports have claimed that the showbiz pair "carefully planned the butt selfie", before Kim shared the saucy snap on Thursday (October 17).
According to Life & Style, the blonde was "dying" to show off her new figure, months after the birth of her first child North West.
“Kim was dying to get her picture taken in a bathing suit,” an insider told the mag - going on to claim that Kanye in fact had the last word on which snap would be shared with the world.
"She took so many pictures and deleted them before she and Kanye decided on the one she posted. He had the ultimate say about Kim putting up the picture and decided which one he liked best."
The reality TV siren has reportedly lost around 70 pounds via the Atkins diet, and recently said on an episode of her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she hopes to pose for Playboy once she's fully back in shape.
"As soon as this is done, I want to do Playboy or some naked shoot," she confessed.
