Kendall Jenner is once again proving that sometimes beauty really is pain. The 818 founder had an unfortunate situation at this year’s Met Gala. She wore a gorgeous black Prada two-piece ball gown set with a dramatic train that trailed behind her and naturally made it difficult to use the bathroom. The top half featured a sheer crop top with a mesh tank with bedazzled detailing.

Jenner revealed on latest episode of The Kardashians that she just couldn’t hold it in any longer and peed in an ice bucket on the way to the star-studded affair. 

“I need to drink a sip of water, and I need to pee,” she said to her team in the limo. “Nobody judge me.”

An assistant suggested using an empty ice bucket which the 27-year-old initially shrugged off. But when she was ultimately left with no option and couldn’t hold it in any longer, she succumbed.

“That is so mortifying for whoever has to deal with my pee later,” she added. “I’m so sorry.”

A member of her entourage jokingly asked if it was possible to sell her urine and another member chimed in to calm everyone down and say its NBD as artists do it all the time at concerts.

Jenner said that the Prada two-piece set was so heavy that just walking to the van left her huffing and puffing. While in the car she hiked up the hem of the dress to properly position the bucket and asked a team member to play music during the whole ordeal.

“Prada, I’m so sorry,” she apologized again as some urine touched her legs and feet. Jenner, however, has no regrets. In the episode’s confessional she said it was the “best” decision—not to mention, a necessary one.
