Just like the Kardashian’s assistant Stephanie Shepherd, makeup artist Joyce Bonelli is a big name herself. And so it seems the internet is just as interested in the reality stars as it is the team of women behind them.

When news broke Bonelli no longer worked for the famous family, rumours flew both parties had a fallout, similar to Shepherd. But the makeup artists set the record straight on the weekend, saying to was her own decision to end her working relationship with the Kardashians and was definitely not let go.

“I definitely have never been fired in my entire life,” she told US Weekly. “And something personal happened to me that I wasn’t OK with and that’s what happened.”

“I work with Salma Hayek, Joan Smalls, Emily Ratajkowski,” she continued. “This happened a year ago, so to me, it’s old news, but if people want to talk about it now, it’s actually giving me such a favor so that people know that I’m available, honey.”

But if there was no beef, why do none of the Kardashians follow her anymore? “The family doesn’t speak to her anymore,” an insider told the publication in June. “She hasn’t worked for them for months. They just stopped working with her because they didn’t see it as a right fit anymore.”
