Kim Kardashian
has become accustomed to seeing her face in the tabloids every week, but one thing she can’t stomach is the criticism over her weight.

During the reality star’s appearance on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night, she told host Jay Leno that she was sick of the name-calling while she was pregnant.

A few months after giving birth to North West, her first child with fiancé Kanye West, Kardashian posted a racy bathing suit photo of herself on Instagram.

“I was trying on a bathing suit, and I actually just sent that to my boyfriend, my fiancé, and I was like, ‘Babe, can I post this up? This is my big, like, middle finger to the world on everyone that called me fat,’” she said (via “People”).

Kardashian told Leno that she has dropped 50 pounds since the birth but added that the negativity has made her try “to live more of a private life” for her daughter.

Kardashian also confirmed that she will likely keep her surname as her middle name and become Kim Kardashian West when she marries, likely next summer “somewhere destinational.”

“Of course,” she stated when asked if her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, will walk her down the aisle.
