Ut oh! There might be some tension between Kim Kardashian and her now former assistant Stephanie Shepherd.
The KUWTK star fired her friend and long time assistant after months of uneasiness.
“Kim made a decision to let Stephanie go,” a source reveals to PEOPLE. “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.”
The source adds, “She’s still friendly with the other sisters but she and Kim aren’t really speaking.”
On this season of the family’s reality show, Kim alluded to a strain in their professional relationship after Stephanie’s closeness and friendship with sister Kourtney Kardashian.
