Kim Kardashian has let go of her personal assistant and close friend Stephanie Shepherd, according to a new report in People. An insider has told the publication the reality star has professionally parted ways with her right-hand woman and wasn’t at all impressed when Shepherd approached Kardashian’s sister Kourtney with a work issue.
“Kim made a decision to let Stephanie go,” the insider says. “She was a good assistant but when Stephanie wanted to transition into a larger role with Kim’s brand and businesses, it just didn’t work. Kim gave her the chance but after a short period of time it became clear that Stephanie just didn’t have the knowledge to take on a role like that. Kim made an executive decision to part ways.”
On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney approached Kim and told her that Shepherd was feeling “unfulfilled, job wise”. Kim deemed this inappropriate for Shepherd to go to Kourtney and not her, despite the latter being really close with Shepherd.
“[Shepherd]’s still friendly with the other sisters but she and Kim aren’t really speaking,” the insider said.
