Kim Kardashian recently fired her longtime assistant Stephanie Shepherd and rumors started circulating about why. A source close to Kim says that the reason was she was just getting too friendly, she wanted a more professional relationship with her assistant. Shepherd was close to the whole family but particularly Kourtney Kardashian.

Kim needed an assistant where the relationship is more professional. Its very difficult to work with friends, so Kim decided to hire someone else. The bottom line is that Steph was hired as an assistant, and Kim wanted to keep it like that. They are not friends now.

In a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney asked Kim if it was weird that she was being "wifey" with her assistant. Stephanie garnered her own social media following and became a celebrity in her own way. Kim wants someone who will stay in the background more with a broader range of experience.
