KOURTNEY Kardashian has sparked concern after revealing a “painful-looking” bruise on her back.
The reality star, 43, shared a photo of herself and husband Travis Barker, 46, capturing a concert arena on their phones.
Kourtney and Travis had their backs to the camera as they took pictures of the KIA Forum in LA, where Travis was performing at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert
The Poosh founder, who wore a sleeveless denim dress, had a purple-colored circular bruise on her upper back.
She explained on her Instagram Story that the mark is from cupping, a form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts heated cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.
The practice is thought to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being.
However, Kourtney’s explanation didn’t stop fans from worrying about her health.
One shared the photo on an Instagram fan account and asked, “What is that?” in regards to the bruise.
Another commented: “It looks painful I hope she’s alright.”
Kourtney and Travis married earlier this year after going public with their romance in February 2021.
Last month, fans became concerned for her relationship with Travis after uncovering details about his past.
The Blink-182 drummer admitted in his 2015 memoir, Can I Say, that he cheated on numerous ex-girlfriends.
He revealed that as he recovered in hospital from his 2008 plane crash, Shanna found out he was cheating by looking through his new laptop.
“While I was sleeping, Shanna went onto my laptop, and my e-mail accounts were all open,” he recounted.
“She saw all my e-mails from the previous three or four years, including messages from about thirteen different girls I had been messing around with in the year before the plane crash.
Travis went on: “I opened my computer and looked at my sent e-mails-and she had written to every single girl.
“If they had sent me naked pictures or videos or a dirty e-mail, she went in on all of ’em. They all got a message along the lines of ‘F*** you b****, how dare you mess with my man, this is Shanna, f*** you.'”
The father-of-two also admitted to cheating during his short-lived first marriage to Melissa Kennedy – who he married in 2001.
“Before Melissa and I got married, I was constantly looking for other girls, picking them up at strip clubs and wherever else I could find them,” he said.
“Even on the night of my bachelor party: I wasn’t married yet. Once we were husband and wife, I resolved to be good, and I stuck to that. But even walking down the aisle, it felt like I was making a mistake.”
The couple underwent IVF treatment in their efforts to conceive.
Fans also watched Kourtney’s bizarre methods as part of her attempts to become pregnant with a fourth child.
In one episode, she tried eating hard-boiled quails eggs.
In another scene, Kourtney confessed to inserting strange objects into her vagina while trying to get pregnant again.
