Kim Kardashian Cuts Ties with Longtime Assistant Stephanie Shepherd: "They Aren't Really Speaking"

Which makes us question whether a picture Shepherd posted on her Instagram story Wednesday afternoon has anything to do with her and Kardashian's severed relationship.

The post reads, "Self care isn't always lush bath bombs & $20 face masks. Sometimes, it's going to bed @ 8pm or letting go of a bad friend. It's forgiving yourself for not meeting your impossible standards & understanding you are worth it. Self care isn't always luxury but a mean for survival."

Shepherd has been Kardashian's assistant since 2013 as well as a close friend of the family (opens in new tab). Maybe Kim will drop some hints on the status of their relationship on an upcoming #KUWTK?
