Kim Kardashian's surprising confession

While Kim Kardashian is undeniably successful, she remains something of a divisive figure.

She proved it again Friday with her caption for yet another racy Instagram post: “I’m really shy…”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star immediately provoked comments, which is surely what she intended to do. It was meant as a joke, right?

Laughing emojis filled the comments section.

“I don’t think so you’re shy actually you make us shy!” one wise commenter wrote.

A few others:

“Funny, you dont seem that shy to show off your whole body.”

“Lol i love you ….. but SHY is one thing you are not!!!!!

“This is just a no for me.”

There were also, as usual, accusations that the mogul had edited her photo. (She’s denied such allegations in the past.)

This image featured Kardashian wearing a string bikini while propping herself up in a pool of water.

Of course, the photos Kardashian has shared this month alone — not counting the many times she’s shown off her fit body in the buff on the pages of a magazine or a social media pic in years and months past — don’t give off a shy vibe.

A refresher:

Whatever she’s doing seems to be working. She reportedly made $5 million in just five minutes this week when her Kimoji fragrance launched.

So make that shy and rich. Very, very rich.
