"The tannerexic mom has some serious competition!!! LOL," Kim wrote alongside a pic of herself with extremely deep copper brown skin."
Some fans were concerned, and Kim finally explained, "Relax that's just a spray tan!!! I washed off & I'm back to my normal tan self! But how crazy does it look after being on for 8 hours."
As RadarOnline.com has been reporting, Patricia Krentcil had her daughter taken away from her and has been charged with second degree child endangerment after allegedly taking her five-year-old into a tanning booth with her.
Kristen Wiig later mimicked Krentcil in one of the most popular Saturday Night Live sketches of the season.
Kim K didn't say how boyfriend Kanye West liked her darker hue. He couldn't keep his hands off her at the Lakers game last night.
