Leave it up to Kim Kardashian to stay in the headlines consistently, even if not directly or intentionally. The prominent pop culture figure has been a household name for ages now, though not always in the most favorable of ways. Establishing herself as a role model to many worldwide, she has been a central focus of attention in the media inevitably.
Following the news of the firing of her assistant, there has been some shade thrown in Kim’s direction. Stephanie Shepard, who was working with Kim since 2013 and embedding herself as a friend of hers naturally. The two had often been seen photographed and attending events and holidays together, appearing to be quite close in relations. Despite all of this, upon her sudden dismissal, there appears to be a revealed sense of bad blood between the two former friends and colleagues.
Holding the much-coveted position of COO of the Kardashian West Brands, Stephanie was recently let go, reporting to People Magazine that “it just didn’t work”. A source told the publication that although she made for a good assistant, her transition to a larger role in the brand and business didn’t go smoothly. “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.” Always on the hunt for the next biggest and the best thing, in an authoritative position, it appears that Kim decided to move on and not dwell on something that simply wasn’t working in the way she wanted.
A source close to the fashion mogul stated that Stephanie was very close with Kim and “almost part of the family”. She’s remained friends and in contact with them, however, her and Kim are not on speaking terms currently. It’s believed that Stephanie was dropped from her position due to being too friendly and not strictly professional enough. Like many do in modern day society, she decided to publicly address the situation, by means of social media.
