Shepherd even got promoted to the role of COO Kardashian West Brands but now People magazine reports that the business relationship is done.

A source tells 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 pair had become friends and another told People in a seperate report that this was part of the problem

““It’s 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.”

Recent episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians have looked at how close Kim and Stephanie had become and also Stephanie’s frustrations with her role.
