Could it be true? Kim Kardashian was taking selfies as a toddler — and in her new book, ‘Selfish,’ she claims she started the entire trend!

Kim Kardashian Claims She Started The Selfie Trend

Did you take selfies before the age of Instagram and social media? Kim did, and she wants everyone to know it.

In her new book, Selfish, Kim claims that she “got hooked” taking pictures of herself as far back as middle school, and that she took her first-ever selfie when she was just a 4 year old kid, reports TMZ.

“I took pictures of myself with digital cameras when I was in junior high and high school, and I just got hooked,” Kim said.

“I was always obsessed with selfies.”

Well, we already knew she was obsessed with selfies — but we didn’t know she “started” the trend!

‘Selfish’ Was Kanye West’s Idea

What’s even more interesting about Kim’s new book of selfies is that it wasn’t even her idea. It was her husbands!

The report claims that Kanye was the one who suggested she print the book of selfie photos, and Donda, his creative team, came up with the “look.” can’t wait to get a peek inside Selfish, because we would love to see all of the “old school” Kim K. selfies!
