There's been rumors that Kim Kardashian and her longtime assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, have been at odds. The pair, who have been inseparable for years, appear to have split up recently. As Cosmo shares, Shepherd shared an Instagram story recently that looks like major shade against her famous boss.
"Self care isn't always lush bath bombs & $20 face masks," she writes. "Sometimes, it's going to bed @ 8pm or letting go of a bad friend." She continues, "It's forgiving yourself for not meeting your impossible standards and understanding you are worth it."
Shepherd has been working for Kim as her right-hand woman since 2013. She handled everything in the reality star's life, from putting together North West's first strollers to helping get Kim down the aisle when she got married in Italy and being by her side after her Paris robbery. "I was doing her whole schedule, doing her laundry, booking travel, putting the stroller together and all of these things. But I wasn’t nervous. I was just excited, always staying longer than I needed because I was trying to prove myself — and then North came early! I was a brand new assistant who had no idea what to do with a baby, but we all moved into Kris' house, and she was the one who made it all feel okay and moved mountains for us," she told Refinery 29. "Four years later, Kim now also has a personal assistant, a house assistant, two kids, two nannies, and I was recently promoted to COO of Kardashian West Brands, so we're looking for someone to fill my executive assistant position. Sometimes we look at each other like, wow, 'remember when it was just me and you?'"
But a rift has been forming. This season, fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians saw Shepherd complaining about not having upward career mobility. Kim was also grappling with how to maintain a friendship and professional relationship with her assistant. In show, the two reconciled with Kim giving Shepherd more responsibilities. It's still unclear what caused their rumored split.
