Juicy Details Emerge About Kim Kardashian's Nasty Falling-Out With Personal Assistant Stephanie Shepherd

Posted on Tue Nov 21st, 2017 9:10am PDT       By X17 Staff

What was supposedly an amicable split, is sure getting nastier and nastier by the day! New details are emerging about Kim Kardashian's "split" -- aka, firing -- of longtime personal assistant Stephanie Shepherd.

Since coming on board with the Queen Kardashian, Steph's job description had grown into something she just wasn't capable of handling, according to some reports. Meanwhile, a RadarOnline report claims, "Kim is telling people that she fired Stephanie because she lacked the mental capacity play a larger role in her brand. But in actuality nothing could be further from the truth. Kim is telling people that she fired Stephanie because she lacked the mental capacity play a larger role in her brand. But in actuality nothing could be further from the truth." The source close to Shepherd goes on to say, "Stephanie was tired of being talked to like she was beneath Kim, and she could never do anything for herself because Kim would beg her to stay and work for days on end."

Another report admits Kim and Steph didn't part was as friends: "Kim made a decision to let Stephanie go. 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," a People magazine source says. "She’s still friendly with the other sisters but she and Kim aren’t really speaking," the source adds.

Shepherd has also been accused of becoming a celebrity herself and not staying out of the spotlight, where Kim may have thought she belonged. But it was Kim who promoted her assistant to COO of Kardashian West brands earlier this year so something dramatic must have happened to make Kim realize Steph wasn't ready for this role. OR something totally unrelated to her business position caused Kim to fire a b*tch.

Shep told Refinery29 for a celeb-assistant profile, "I've never really wanted to be front-and-center on the show. But the thing is, the girls really don't stop living their lives for the camera, so the reality is I'm often there, because I'm actually working." She went on to say, "Sometimes I think about how it’s such a weird thing that people want to know or even care about me, just because I work for Kim. But then it's like, well, she is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world. I don't get recognized a lot unless I'm with her ..."

Still other rags have another angle on the story, which is that Kim was jealous of Steph's close friendship with Kourtney. They two spent tons of time together and Stephanie even told Refinery29 she gets mistaken for the eldest Kardashian girl because they "look alike" and have "the same style."

So could Kim not handle playing second fiddle to her sis in the eyes of her assistant/COO? Did StephShep get too big for her britches? She does have more than 900K followers on Instagram! But given that her last post with the Kardashian family was on Kendall's birthday a few weeks ago, will fans continue to follow when the Kardashian pix dry up???


Paris Hilton Reunites With Pregnant Sis Nicky Rothschild For A Beverly Hills Shopping Trip

Posted on Tue Nov 21st, 2017 8:56am PDT       By X17 Staff

We love these girls together! Sisters Paris and Nicky reunited for a shopping trip in Beverly Hills, on Tuesday -- Paris looking hot in her sexy black leather and lace look and Nicky looking lovely in florals and a princess braid as she prepares to welcome her second child with hubby James.

Even though these rich bitches certainly don't need to shop a sale, it was serendipitous that Barney's famous 40% off, pre-Black Friday discount started yesterday. Who doesn't like a good bargain?!

Paris brought along her adorable little pooch -- obviously one of the most pampered pets in Hollywood -- while Nicky carried her own special cargo. She has daughter Lily Grace, who celebrated her first birthday in July; and Nicky is set to give birth in early 2018 so she'll have two under two! Between that and news that Paris' super-sweet (and hot) boyfriend Chris Zylka is getting close to proposing marriage, the Hilton family is set to have a terrific Thanksgiving and a very merry Christmas this year, for sure!


EXCLUSIVE - Scott Takes Mason Out Of Town Following Massive Fight With Kourtney

Posted on Tue Nov 21st, 2017 6:37am PDT       By X17 Staff

Whoa! Scott Disick whisked son Mason away after a massive fight with baby mama Kourtney Kardashian, on Monday, a source tells X17online exclusively. The father-son duo hopped a commercial flight (we're told he doesn't have the $$$ for his own private jet, since Sofia Richie's not footing the bill for this one) with his 7-year-old son following a disagreement with Kourt over Thanksgiving plans.

The Kardashian clan is planning a big family get together and after their big blowout, Scott wants no part of it. Our source tells us, "Scott is pissed at Kourtney right now and he knew the way to hurt her the most was to take Mason and do something with him for the holiday. And Sofia Richie is involved in this whole thing, too."

Our source says Sofia wanted Scott to herself for Thanksgiving but the Kardashians still consider Scott part of the family and they wanted him to come along on their family vacay for Turkey Day. The 19-year-old "model," however, isn't thinking in such terms: "Sofia just wants a fun vacation with Scott. Their relationship is kind of built on them going off on 5-star trips together and Thanksgiving was the perfect excuse for a holiday. Sofia doesn't really understand Scott's responsibilities as a parent because she's still a kid herself."

As the Kardashian family prepares for their annual Thanksgiving retreat together, Scott is sending a clear signal that he wants no part of it this year ... and he doesn't want Mason with Kourtney and her family either. He's whisked his boy away for some father-son bonding time and who knows, maybe it'll make the notorious bad boy realize he needs to be present more often!

With the holiday only two days away, the Kardashian fam is waiting to see what Scott will do ... will he keep Mason the whole week or will he cave and meet up with the rest of the group for turkey and fixins? Our source says Scott's not even sure, himself: "Scott just left, impulsively. He's not sure if he'll join up with the family later or not. He wanted to make a point -- to shock everyone -- and it worked. Kourtney's a little worried but she also knows Scott loves his son and wouldn't do anything to put him in danger. It seems like there's part of her that's happy Scott is finally acting like a dad."

Mason looked happy ... finally some attention from dad ...

Selena Gomez Goes Blonde, Gets SLAMMED On Social Media For Allegedly Lip-Syncing At AMAs

Posted on Mon Nov 20th, 2017 11:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Selena Gomez was looking adorably retro-cool with her new blonde, cropped 'do, dark roots showing for effect, at the American Music Awards Sunday night. The singer posted pix of her new look just ahead of the show, going for a throwback-y kind of vibe in the mostly black-and-white pix.

But all the cuteness came to a screeching halt when Selena took to the stage last night -- for the first time all year -- the first time since her kidney transplant this summer -- and haters and fans alike took to social media to criticize Gomez for apparently lip-syncing her new single "Wolves." Some say she wasn't lip-syncing at all, but singing against a backing track, which isn't uncommon at awards shows and certainly not for concerts, while others defend SG claiming she was 100% singing live. Watch below ... what do YOU think?


Do you think Selena was lip-syncing her AMAs "Wolves" performance?

Uh, duh.
No way! She would never do that for her big comeback performance!

Cuteness overload!

Kourtney Kardashian and son Reign Disick dressed in matching black and white for a trip to the farmers market, on Sunday. The little man-bunned boy wore a panda Adidas track suit, while mom wore an oversized plaid flannel, flared black leather pants and boots for the outing.

Meanwhile, Mason and Penelope were with their dad at the movies. Little Reign, who's only 2, is probably a bit young to sit still in a movie theater. By the looks on his face, he's quite a character!


Scott, Penelope, And Mason Are An Uber-Fashionable Trio!

Scott Disick and his kids are true fashion plates! Just look at the risk the Lord is taking with an all-red outfit on Sunday for an outing to the movies with Penelope and Mason. And check out the kids' looks!

We can't believe little Pene has her satin bomber draped over her shoulders -- what kid wears their jacket like that?! And she's wearing it over a bias-cut black skirt, paired with sneakers. The tyke is carrying a stress-relief Squishie, which we hope is just for fun ... and that she's not stressed out about spending time with her dad!

Then there's Mason -- he's copying his dad with a Christmas red Adidas zip-up over a Yeezy Calabasas tee. Kanye's really outfitting the entire family!

Scott's got his trusty Yeezy Calabasas white sneakers on with a red Kith hoodie and matching track pants. The boys look like they're ready for Christmas!

The trio went to see Coco at their local Calabasas movie theater, while Reign went to the farmers' market with his mom Kourtney ... those pix coming soon! They are ADORABLE!

She's not gonna give it up!

Pregnant cosmetic queen Kylie Jenner isn't on maternity leave just yet ... the makeup mogul is posting selfies to promote her newest Kyshadows Lip Kit colors and more but she's sticking to tightly-cropped pix of her face -- no voluptuous 7- or 8-month pregnant chest in these photos!

After making a clearly ridiculous claim that X17 Photoshopped our EXCLUSIVE pix of the 20-year-old's baby bump as she hopped onto a private jet to take off on a girls' trip to celebrate her mom Kris' birthday, Travis Scott's baby mama is still concealing more than facial blemishes -- this girl's flat out pretending she's not pregnant!

But her Snapchats tell a different story ... just look at what she's been eating as of late! Uhhh ... pregnancy cravings, anybody?
