Khloe Kardashian is reportedly trying to erase a bikini photo of herself from the internet, after it was posted without her permission by an assistant.
The un-edited candid image is said to show Khloe smiling as she stands by a pool, wearing a leopard-print bikini, according to MailOnline.
Members of the Kardashians' team have reportedly been reporting instances of the photo online for copyright infringement, as it was posted without permission.
In a statement obtained by Page Six, KKW Brands chief marketing officer Tracy Romulus said: "The colour edited photo was taken of Khloe during a private family gathering and posted to social media without permission by mistake by an assistant.
"Khloe looks beautiful but it is within the right of the copyright owner to not want an image not intended to be published taken down."
While the image has been quickly removed, it has popped up in online forums – and commenters have praised Khloe for how naturally beautiful she looks.
The mum-of-one usually presents picture perfect images to her followers, with flawless skin, a nipped in waist and her curves accentuated.

The image was shared to Reddit after it was leaked – though was quickly taken down – however it didn't stop people commenting.
"I am loving this hot tea. Kinda sad though. Khloe looks so stunning in it," one said.
A second wrote: "Are you kidding? There is one pic of her looking actually natural and gorgeous with some flaws and she wants it gone from the internet?"

It's not clear where the photo came from, though one theory is that Kris Jenner's mother MJ shared it to her "finsta" – a private Instagram account the rich and famous use to share photos with their nearest and dearest.
Another theory, as shared on Reddit in a now-deleted screenshot, shows Tracy Romulus contacting an Instagram account which had shared it, saying the photo was "stolen and doctored and originated from a fake IG account".
Whether the photo is "doctored" or not, Khloe is no stranger to being accused of altering her face and body in her photos.
Some fans have shared side-by-side comparisons of an image from Khloe's Instagram, and a screengrab of her in the same look from Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Of course, the differences between the two were obvious, as one was posed and in strong lighting, and the other was relaxed and mid-conversation.
However it hasn't stopped fans claiming Khloe is "unrecognisable" in photos she shares online.
