Kim Kardashian and Her New Publicist Lead Today’s Star Sightings
Kim Kardashian is cleaning house!
Not only did the 37-year-old reality star recently part ways with her longtime assistant, but she apparently dumped her publicist as well. According to Page Six, the mom-of-two dropped Ina Treciokas — who has been working with the KKW Beauty founder since 2013 — in favor of a “more political” rep.
The alleged regime change came after pal Stephanie Shepherd was let go because the former executive assistant “didn’t have the knowledge” to keep up — pardon the pun — with the duties of the COO of Kardashian West Brands, a source told 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,” an insider spilled. “Kim made an executive decision to part ways.”
While Stephanie has yet to respond to the reports of her firing, Ina refuted rumors of her departure. “I still work with Kim and other members of the family. There are no changes — only an addition,” she told Page Six. “A publicity firm has been added to the team to handle KKW (Kim Kardashian West’s) beauty and fragrance lines.”
